RED ALERT! Spoilers for “Skyward”! If you are looking for a spoiler-free review, please listen to Part 1 first.

“Skyward” is about a young girl named Spensa “Spin” Nightshade. All she’s ever wanted was to join the pilots who defend Detritus and prove her father wasn’t a coward. Her people have been stranded on the barren world for the past 80 years and suffer constant bombardments from the Krell—an alien species who chased them across the galaxy.

This is part two of our two-part review of “Skyward” by Brandon Sanderson. It features an in-depth discussion about the plot and characters.  If you’re looking for a spoiler-free review, be sure to listen to part one here. Then get the book, read it, and return here for our spoiler-y chat.
