Narrator Suzy Jackson's assured, brassy tones and forceful delivery are an exceptional match for Sanderson's high-stakes, battle-driven space opera. 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. 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. This is a high-octane futuristic narrative of hope, sacrifice, and courage, and a fast pace speaks to the rising urgency as war rages above the planet. K.S.B.
