Such an amazing sequel!
The blurb from the back of the book:
All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she’s a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing. The rumours of his cowardice are true – he deserted his flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.
Spensa is sure there’s more to the story. And she’s sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars – and it was terrifying. What she learned turned her world upside down. Everything Spensa’s been taught is a lie.
But Spensa also learned a few things about herself – and she’ll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.
It took me a while to pick this book up (it had been on my shelf for quite a while). I loved Skyward and I didn’t think it would compare.
Well. Starsight is amazing! It was soo much better than Skyward and I learnt so much more about Spensa.
I loved how this book took us away from Detritus and to another part of the galaxy. It was interesting to learn more about the Krell and to discover other alien species.
We met new characters: Lord Hesho, Cuna and Brade to name a few. There were also plenty of characters from Skyward including M-Bot and Doomslug.
There are still a lot of questions that I need answering, and I can’t believe we have to wait over a year for the next book!
Overall, this was an awesome read! Brandon Sanderson is such a great writer.
I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
