Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Today I’m departing from the #BEDN prompts because I’ve got a book to review. Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward Claim the Stars is a fantastic SF adventure, the sort of book I absolutely love. It rockets along with unexpected twists and turns, never slowing to let you catch your breath. I’ve no idea how I’ve not read […]

Days of Wonder by Keith Stuart
