The only reason this is a 4 star book is because its no Mistborn, but it's pretty close. The story continues and Brandon Sanderson's writing improves. Definitely buying the next book.

You will reevaluate your life after listening to this. Beautiful writing, along with a strange perspective and the perfect narrator.

I love xanxia, so I was really excited for this book. I've zoned out of listening to multiple chapters and I still know whats going on because it's so slow and predictable. The author took all the fun exciting tropes of a xanxia and put them in a box as an after thought. Then focused entirely on the most boring parts of the magic system. Characters are bland. Jokes aren't funny. And the narrator is so monotone he obviously didn't like the book either.

Its a good story and I'll definitely buy the next book whenever its out. Magic does get stretched for the convenience of the characters, but the exploration of magic system itself is very well done.

There are definitely a few plot holes and other little things to nitpick, but over all its a good story. And Nick Podehl never disappoints.

Everything is very well done, except the characters. Main character is a sex obsessed asshole who gets lucky breaks that further the plot more often than actually working for it. Most other characters have no depth and serve their purposes quietly and unrealistically.

Fun world building and magic system.

The characters, plot and world are so perfectly knit together that you can't progress one without progressing the others. The story flows well and keeps you engaged at all times.

The narrator was amazing, voicing characters, adding pauses, coughs, stutters ...where needed, making the experience very immersive.

90% of the events of the book are told rather than shown and described. Character development is sudden and unrealistic. The worst part is that the narrator sounds like he's reading a news article. No emphasis on words, no added personality to the characters.

The plot and world building are decent but I'm struggling to finish this book.

Loads of action, compelling characters, a mysterious world, and a near perfect narrator.
This book was absolutely worth it.

The only thing Skyward is currently lacking is a sequel.
