Publisher's Summary

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

“Don’t trust their lies. Don’t trust their false peace.” That is the warning that Alanik of the planet ReDawn gave the human pilot Spensa after Alanik’s ship crash-landed on Detritus. While accepting an invitation to meet with her people’s enemy, the Galactic Superiority, Alanik heard Spensa’s cry for help across the vastness of space, and she used her cytonic powers to hyperjump her ship to the source of that cry. What she found there was a shock - a whole planet of free humans fighting against the Superiority. Were they the allies her people desperately needed? 

When she recovered from her injuries and met the friendly humans Jorgen and FM of Skyward Flight, she found that her warning to Spensa had gone unheeded by the government of Detritus, and they were considering a peace overture from the Superiority. Now having returned to ReDawn, Alanik is dismayed to learn that her own people are falling into the exact same trap. 

The faction in ReDawn’s government that wants to appease the Superiority has gained the upper hand. With Alanik’s mentor, Renakin captured, she has no one to turn to but Jorgen, FM, and their friend Rig. An ancient technology may have the power to save both of their planets from disaster, but can they discover its secrets before it’s too late?

good stuff

Efficient compelling storytelling happens again here. "ReDawn" is fast paced with lots of tension moving things forward and the point of view of this character actually works pretty well and it feels like it adds to the story of the main human characters. It's not just dry padding, it is it's own worthwhile thing. The worldbuilding is handled well without pausing the action for a bunch of description. If you are reading the main series and enjoying it these novellas are just as good, even if they follow different characters.

Marvelous as always!

I love the concept of inviting another author to write a common book. It's the best of both worlds! The story is great and flows well. The characters are credible and feel real. There is cute slugs. What more do you need!

Thank you Brandon and Janci for this amazing novella! I want more!

Another great experience!

These two novellas were such a great adition to the story and a great way to hype up while waiting for Cytonic.
I can't wait for the third one to come out and check back in with the crew.
