Suzy Jackson on Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward

A high-octane adventure with a fierce female protagonist

Narrator Suzy Jackson is an exceptional match for this high-stakes, battle-driven space opera—the first installment in a new YA series from author Brandon Sanderson. Suzy inhabits the brave, strong, fierce female protagonist in SKYWARD, and while she was recording, Suzy was captivated by the layers of world-building in Sanderson’s high-octane futuristic narrative of hope, sacrifice, and courage.

“The adventure of it was so exciting that I would come home every night after recording and tell my two young boys what had happened.”—Narrator Suzy Jackson

Spensa is an aspiring fighter pilot on a distant planet, but her father’s past military betrayal means she must face extraordinary odds to prove her worth on the battlefield. Narrator Suzy Jackson’s gift for characterizations shines—she brings out the humor and heroism in Spensa’s young classmates and friends (and the neurotic spaceship MBOT), along with the pain and perseverance of the generations that came before them.

Suzy has garnered rave reviews for her performances of audiobooks for teens and younger listeners—explore her audiography to find more.
