Publisher's Summary

From number one best-selling author Brandon Sanderson and Janci Patterson comes the final of three Skyward series novellas, each told from the perspective of a different member of the team back on Detritus. Listen to Jorgen's story along with Cytonic.

With the government of Detritus in disarray because of Superiority treachery, and with Spensa still away on her mission in the Nowhere, Jorgen must work together with the alien Alanik to pick up the pieces. They intercept a strange transmission from the planet Evershore and its Kitsen inhabitants, who say they have some of Jorgen’s people and want to return them - but can the Kitsen be trusted? And can Jorgen learn to master his increasingly erratic cytonic powers before they spiral out of control and destroy all hope of forming an alliance against the Superiority?

Much needed insight

This continuation of the skyward plot provides us with some much needed insight about whats been goin on with Spensa's crew while she's off in the nowhere as told in the 3rd book. Does a great job of setting everything up for the inevitable 4th book which seems like its going to be where everything hits the fan so to speak and the storyline comes to its climax. The book being from Jorgen's POV helps us understand the inner struggle he's dealing with since the last novella and shows his progress with cytonics. Not surprisingly a very well written book as well as extremely entertaining and enlightening. If you're already into this series i dont see any other option then to get on this book ASAP😁👍👍

The climax is better than all of Cytonic…

I disliked Cytonic quite a bit and felt it was heavy handedly YA in all the bad ways. Which was a shame since I enjoyed the first two books. These novellas should have been the third book with a D-plot being given to Spensa. Jorgen just does work and it’s awesome.

3 stars only because these 3 novellas should really have been priced as one collection.

Lit

I've REALLY enjoyed Jorgan's character development along the length of this book. It felt like a continuation of Sunreach, as it really focused a lot on FM as well.

When I first heard about the Novellas, I had already finished Starsight and was about to jump into Cytonic.

I'd finished Redawn before going to Cytonic, then went back to listen to Sunreach, then Evershore, though to be honest, I initially (prior to listening to Redawn) didn't have high expectations of the Novellas.

Not that the Cytoverse (as I've heard it called) wasn't exciting- I was just afraid it would be a lot of filler.

I was wrong. Each adds richly to the main storyline, and I was glad to have different characters' perspectives for each.

Brandon has again, with Janci, created characters that you can't help but feel like you know personally. That you get attached to, and so involved with the world they live in, you find yourself compelled to advance the story (much to my dismay when I have to put them down).

Well worth the read.

Well done Janci.

To Brandon- your trust in her was VERY well placed.

A beautiful writing duo.

I look forward to the final book (that's a HINT, BRANDON!)

Meh

usual, boring tropes:
1. a child (teenager) can do things adults can't.
2. children being favored over adults for leadership positions.
3. inexperienced children succeed where experienced adults fail.
has no one seen lord of the flies??
4. story made longer thanks to unnecessary overthinking that slows down the plot and makes characters unlikable
5. main characters being unrealistic about everything: their capabilities, their influence, their importance. Jerkface isn't the only one with reigns in his hands. Lots of ppl made decisions too.
6. plot armor for main cast: skyward flight, cobb, etc
7. unrealistic happy endings: P2P convo is not enough to promote a lying child to VP acting as P
8. uses skill once, forget has it

Jason was so much more interesting than anyone on Detritus.

A bunch of self doubt and pep talks over and over

The whole book is basically a series of pep talks for Jorgen. Just self doubt and pep talks over and over. Pretty rough.

It annoys me that the concept is interesting…

when the characters are much more annoying than they are interesting. Typical YA angst. There was so much teen angst in this one (and this character in general) that I actually had to fast forward through some of it.
I just want Brandon to redo this series in a non-YA version. The universe, the powers, the delvers, the taynix are all so interesting that I have to keep going, but Jorgen is the emperor of YA angst.
As a bonus, the ending of this one requires a massive suspension of disbelief regarding the way normal militaries and governments function.
Abbreviated review: this is NOT a good book. It's not even a really good story. It's a really interesting universe though.

Too much whining to be a book

A try and a miss. A story about a whiny boy. Annoying and dumb. Why.

Female narration of a story in a male voice

I love Brandon Sanderson's books.

I'm sure this one is also up to his standards, but I am having a seriously hard time getting through the first few chapters.

What's throwing me off is that this story is written in a male voice (main character being male), but narrated in a female voice.

The transition I have to make in my head due to this juxtaposition really distracts from the story. And because of it, I don't feel justified in giving it a higher rating.

just what we needed

I loved reading the original novel trilogy but felt really unsatisfied at the end because I wanted to know more of what happened with the character development.

The novellas were just what I needed to feel like I had gotten the story I needed and wanted to hear. of the three novellas, this one was by far my favorite.

I do wish they had given a little more info on the main character and not left the ending so unfinished and unwritten. it definitely feels like there is still room for another book or more story to tell.

I do love the narrator Suzy Jackson and thought it was nice that they had her continue the stories through the novellas in the Audible versions; however, it sometimes makes it confusing to understand who the main subject is. after hours and hours of hearing her voice as mainly Spensa, it was sometimes difficult to transition into that voice being Jorgan also.
