This was the first Brandon Sanderson book I've ever read and it was fine.
He's an excellent writer and the story was engaging. The ending left me wondering whether or not I'd read the next one.
This is a very "Hero With a Thousand Faces" story. Spensa, a young woman drawn to her destiny to become a pilot, is haunted by the shadow and mystery of her father's actions as a pilot.
As the story unfolds the perspective widens. And then, towards the end, the perspective gets wider than anyone thought possible. That's also where the book lost me: I am uncertain whether I like the world this story was building towards. There's nothing wrong with it, maybe just not my cup of tea.
