Can’t Wait Wednesday : Cytonic (Skyward #3) by Brandon Sanderson

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Cytonic (Skyward #3) by Brandon Sanderson.  I’ve loved the first two books so I was really excited when I saw this one due for release in November:

CytonicFrom the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, the Mistborn trilogy, and the Stormlight Archive comes the third book in an epic series about a girl who will travel beyond the stars to save the world she loves from destruction.

Spensa’s life as a Defiant Defense Force pilot has been far from ordinary. She proved herself one of the best starfighters in the human enclave of Detritus and she saved her people from extermination at the hands of the Krell—the enigmatic alien species that has been holding them captive for decades. What’s more, she traveled light-years from home as an undercover spy to infiltrate the Superiority, where she learned of the galaxy beyond her small, desolate planet home.

Now, the Superiority—the governing galactic alliance bent on dominating all human life—has started a galaxy-wide war. And Spensa’s seen the weapons they plan to use to end it: the Delvers. Ancient, mysterious alien forces that can wipe out entire planetary systems in an instant. Spensa knows that no matter how many pilots the DDF has, there is no defeating this predator.

Except that Spensa is Cytonic. She faced down a Delver and saw something eerily familiar about it. And maybe, if she’s able to figure out what she is, she could be more than just another pilot in this unfolding war. She could save the galaxy.

The only way she can discover what she really is, though, is to leave behind all she knows and enter the Nowhere. A place from which few ever return.

To have courage means facing fear. And this mission is terrifying.

Expected publication : November 2021

      I’m loving it so can’t wait.
      But, at the end of the day, there isn’t enough time to be reading all the series is there?

    Hmm, I’ve tried to read Sanderson before but somehow his books just don’t “click” with me. I feel that he either gets too technical about his magical world-building or perhaps his books are more old school by today’s SFF standards? Dunno. I really like his Writing Excuses podcast and some of his YouTube videos though — he seems to be so knowledgeable about the SFF world.

      Yes, he’s a really interesting guy. I went to listen to him talk and he’s so straightforward and very generous with his advice.
      I know what you mean, he does have a way of writing that can feel a little technical but I think that’s one of the things I like about his work – it just isn’t for everyone.
