SKYWARD is a New York Times Bestselling Series


We’re thrilled to announce that the release of DEFIANT last week has put SKYWARD back up on the New York Times Bestseller list! The November 21 release of the fourth book in the series, DEFIANT, has put it at #4 on the Children’s Series chart.

In SKYWARD, #1 New York Times Bestselling author Brandon Sanderson writes an epic series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity’s future. In her world, which has been under alien attack for decades, pilots are the heroes of what’s left of humanity, and she is determined to fly despite her father’s legacy and the dangers that it might bring. 

DEFIANT is the fourth and final book in the Skyward series, whose previous installments have charted #1 on Amazon, been selected for Kirkus Reviews Best Books of the year, and spent time on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestseller lists. DEFIANT is also currently at #48 on the USA Today Bestseller list. Last week’s release was celebrated by the third annual Dragonsteel convention, which welcomed 117 vendors (including JABberwocky!) and over 4000 attendees. DEFIANT also sent Brandon to a new yearly high in sales (as reported to Circana Bookscan), with another five weeks yet to go in the year.

Congratulations to Brandon and the whole Dragonsteel team on this incredible finale to the series!
