Waterstones Says

After a crushing discovery of deception from those closest to her, Spensa will stop at nothing in her quest to save humankind in this tantalising second book of Sanderson’s Skyward series.

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.

Full of action - THE SUN

All the main characteristics of a Sanderson novel from a writer at the top of his game. - FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

With this action-packed trilogy opener, Sanderson offers up a resourceful, fearless heroine and a memorable cast-including a strangely humorous, mushroom-obsessed robot-set against the backdrop of a desperate conflict. As the pulse-pounding story intensifies and reveals its secrets, a cliffhanger ending sets things up for the next instalment. - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

as always, Brandon Sanderson creates a unique and interesting universe we get to explore alongside the protagonist...a fun, action packed ride for those of us who remain a child at heart. - Best Fantasy Books

The world of The Reckoners is suddenly presented in all its glory. It's an incredibly vibrant setting that showcases the entire breadth of Sanderson's talent. Expect to finish this one in single sitting. - Upcoming 4 Me

The stories are complex, fascinating, and filled to the brim with three-dimensional characters - Fantasy Book Review

Firefight is a visual, almost cinematic novel - Buzzy Mag

Firefight is a rollercoaster ride of action, entertainment, and humour - Smash Dragons

Firefight is filled with a spine-tingling adventure and heart-racing action that promises to satisfy fans both new and old - Fantasy Book Critic

A terrifically tall tale, packaging the superhero action into compelling, punchy chapters that keep you reading. It's a fast, feisty read with characters that are skillfully drawn, assassinations, gunfights, physics bending motorcycle chases and a world you can't wait to hear more about. - SFX
