あらすじ・解説

Defeated, crushed, and driven almost to extinction, the remnants of the human race is trapped on a planet that is constantly attacked by mysterious alien starfighters. 

Spensa, a teenage girl living among them, longs to be a pilot. When she discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, she realizes this dream might be possible - assuming she can repair the ship, navigate flight school, and (perhaps most importantly) persuade the strange machine to help her. 

Because this ship, uniquely, appears to have a soul.

Another Sanderson Gem

I purchased this book on pre-order and started listening immediately upon it's release. I have read most of Brandon Sanderson's work, I find him one of the most compelling story-teller's in the sci-fi/fantasy genre. I was not disappointed with Skyward, it's a page-turner through and through.

Of note is the wholesome nature of this story. It is suitable for young teenagers and above, with a deceptively simple narrative that nonetheless highlights Sanderson's ability to polish a story to its essence. The character-work is front and centre, in true coming-of-age style. However, it is the world-building that occurs during the story that truly captivates and speaks to the compelling series that this first book introduces us to. That said, every word in this book is purposeful, with no wasted time to establish details. Skyward gives the reader an intimate and personal viewpoint from which to grasp the context of a galaxy-spanning story. I look forward to listening again when Skyward 2 is released (Sanderson has apparently already drafted the next in this series).

The audio performance was also well produced. Sophie Aldred voices the protagonist brilliantly and does a solid job with the supporting roles as well. Her narrative delivery manages to draw you in, allowing the listener to feel the emotion of the protaganist whilst sustaining the sense of immersion throughout fast-paced action scenes.

Entertaining and surprising story

Brandon Sanderson is a long time favorite for me and this story did not disappoint. It felt slightly different from his other works but by no means less entertaining. To me it felt like i was listening to a star wars movie being narrated. And I absolutely loved that. The one thing i disliked about the book is that i wished it would have been longer.

very young adult, stretches credulity at times

the narration is top notch. story concept is brilliant. plot etc are extremely young adult no layers and complexity. serendipity in the story sometimes stretches credulity.
would still recommend for the concept and the narrator.

Beautiful

I don’t like si-fi that much, more of a Fantasy man myself. However, this is hands down one of the best books I have ever experienced. Please give this a try, it was magnificent.

Really enjoyed this book by the end

I was curious about this book. Then I was intrigued. Then sucked in. Then hating that it was ending! Sanderson is a master of writing unique and gripping stories. Loved it and it's worth a credit!

Better version with Sophie Aldred

Much better version
This series was promoted for "young adults" audience. I think it was more apparent in the other version narrated by Suzy Jackson.
This version, narrated by Sophie Aldred feels slightly more mature. Also M-bot sounds better in this version, for some reason the Irish/Scottish? accent makes its quirky character better stand out.

What a fun story - highly recommended

From the descriptor, I didn't think that I would enjoy this book but as it had been recommended, I thought I would persevere. Well, I'm so glad that I had. While I see myself as a 'serious' SF fan I had overlooked a gem of a story. It's just absolute fun and so well narrated that I would have to give 6 not fiver stars. Its pure SF in the Flash Gordon style. I found it refreshingly engrossing. Thank you so much for a great story beautifully narrated. I'm so sorry that it has ended.

Sanderson sci-fi magic

Brandon Sanderson's world building and magic systems have put him up there with the best in the fantasy genre. This is sci-fi. - there is no magic system. Instead we're treated to the Sanderson imagination unleashed skyward.

It does read a little young-adult, but I wouldn't see that as a negative. This is easily one of those books which could be enjoyed by a family together on a long journey (no cringey-turn-the-volume-down scenes). No bad language ("Scud!" is as bad as it gets), no graphic sex scenes, no bloody violence (although there is death through battle - it is sensitively managed) - instead you get likeable, interesting characters and a well conceived plot. And despite trying to work it out all the way through the book, and my many guesses at the reasons things were as they were....I didn't come close! It's a good ending, while still setting things up nicely for a sequel or two.

A very well spent credit and another contented Sanderson fan.

Action all the way !!!

Gripping sifi tale with epic dog fights !!
And no dreary political ramblings that can normally be found in a Brandon Sanderson novel.
There are lots of memorable characters with brilliant names and Sophie makes such a good job of doing all the different voices there is no way that you can get them mixed up.

Slightly juvenile but entertaining

For me this reads as young adult sci fi. Was enjoyable and almost had the feel of ready player one but lacking the fan fiction cheese.

Really enjoyed the narrator after Sanderson has been so reliant on his go to pals in the past.

The plot is interesting and does not follow the usual plot of the protagonist possessing powers that make them untouchable (though towards the end I can see that trope coming back)

Overall not a bad book.

Excellent for Adult and Teenagers alike

I read / listened to this book first (using the Kindle and audible feature) and found it engaging and funny. The characters were good, and although it was clearly aimed at the younger listener, it was very entertaining to listen to.

My 12 and 14 year olds then listened to it and thought it was the best book that they have listened to / read. They are both looking forward to the next in the series.

For me I need more Mistborn novels but this is a great series too.

He’s done it AGAIN!


Another thoroughly enthralling new story with new characters with new powers within a new world filled with new enmities. How does he keep on coming up with such new stuff! I’ve read everything this author has and he never ceases to surprise me.

I loved every minute of it. Couldn’t stop listening. Thank you once again Brandon for writing something so epic that gets you “out of yourself” to reach to higher heights of glory- and yet- is still so accessible for readers both young and old.

Enjoyable all the way through!

Engaging story (especially after the first 2-3 hours), likeable protagonist with an interesting cast of characters and more action than I'm accustomed to from Sanderson.

The narrator, Sophie Alfred, spins a great yarn. It's a brief tale compared to Sanderson's other work but the story benefits from it.

I would happily listen to narrative of Skyward Flight again. With any luck a sequel is planned.

Thoroughly captivating

It started with a spin. Made quite a few twists. Ended with a bang. What more can I ask?

A second book? Then a third?

This first one is well balanced and goes into detail, action, dialogue at perfect pace. I felt no frustration to want to skip any part, nor slow - to want it to hurry up.

Loved every chapter, every character and every idea.

Narration is beautiful, able to show a lot of emotions that I believe the author wanted to voice in his written words.

Sanderson’s genius flawlessly performed

Brandon Sanderson is one, of if not, the greatest living “Universe builders”. He has done it again, creating an immersive, complete and engaging world filled with interesting characters. However, it’s Sophie Aldred’s masterful performance brings this story to life, with a warmth and humour that reminds you how great an audiobook can be.

Starts slow but ends well

I almost returned this book after the first few hours. I found it a bit slow to get going, following a standard story pattern that I've heard many times. About half way through it starts to throw some clues that there could be more depth to the story and I nearly didnt make it that far. The latter parts were solid and enjoyable so I'm glad I stuck with it.

The book is more teen target than i anticipated, I didn't notice anything along those lines when I looked it up, which is fine, just not as meaty as what I've listened to lately and what i expected after mistborn.

Narration was good, captured the teenage girl well. Very appropriate choice for this book.
