Up to this point Skyward is my favorite book in the series and the Novellas did not change that. I feel I can repeat what I said in my previous reviews to describe this book because the books are getting repetitive too.

There is a focus on world-building and it is staring to get a bit tiring for me. There is more focus on the protagonist here so Jorgen does get to shine and grow in this book. But the first book had a large case of characters and it made me care about them and it was brutal at the same time. Now I feel that the remaining cast has to make it at all costs so it is like they got a plot armor and only secondary minor characters die. There is always a high stake war and somehow the characters make it through.

The Kitsen and the Slugs are very cute so I don’t mind getting to know them more. I felt the pacing in this one was a bit off in the middle which made the novella feel a bit longer than it really is. And how are the novellas not essential to the story? I feel they do really provide a lot of info that should have been part of the main series.

I am getting more and more lukewarm when it gets to this series but deep down I have some hopes for the last book and I hope it ties up things in a good way and bring some of the excitement that the first book did for me. Since it is a Sanderson series, I don’t think the wait will be too long!
