Skyward Flight

Brandon Sanderson & Janci Patterson

A shorter step back into Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward series with this first of three novellas co-authored by Janci Patterson, focussed on secondary characters who don’t get focus time in the main novels.

This one follows FM, a pilot, as she goes about her daily business of flying battles and investigating slugs, roughly in parallel to the third main novel.

It took me a few chapters to get back into the swing of the universe, but once there I was just as, if not more, hooked by the narrative. There’s a subtly different tone to the writing I think which makes it easier to read, less choppy perhaps, and I’m not sure whether this is because of the shared authorship or a deliberate stylistic choice because of the change of focus character.

It’ll be really interesting to see how the subsequent two novellas compare.
