Cytonic: The Third Skyward Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Spensa's life as a Defiant Defense Force pilot has been far from ordinary.
She proved herself one of the best starfighters in the human enclave of Detritus and she saved her people from extermination at the hands of the Krell - the enigmatic alien species that has been holding them captive for decades. What's more, she travelled light-years from home as a spy to infiltrate the Superiority, where she learned of the galaxy beyond her small, desolate planet home. Now, the Superiority - the governing galactic alliance bent on dominating all human life - has started a galaxy-wide war. And Spensa has seen the weapons they plan to use to end it: the Delvers. Ancient, mysterious alien forces that can wipe out entire planetary systems in an instant.
Spensa knows that no matter how many pilots the DDF has, there is no defeating this predator.
Except that Spensa is Cytonic. She faced down a Delver and saw something eerily familiar about it. And maybe, if she's able to figure out what she is, she could be more than just another pilot in this unfolding war. She could save the galaxy. The only way she can discover what she really is, though, is to leave behind all she knows and enter the Nowhere. A place from which few ever return.
To have courage means facing fear. And this mission is terrifying.

I’ve read the first two in the series, plus the 2 novellas, but this book was so different, and not enjoyably so. There were moments I was wondering whether this book was written by Brandon Sanderson or Lewis Carroll.
Loved the first book, downtrodden, undervalued, the prejudice faced, the interesting mysteries, and the heart pumping action/danger.
Second book - seeing the greater galactic community through the eyes of the main character and her growth to understand her enemies weren't all her enemies. The Delver threat, and her awesome confrontation with one.
Third book - is essentially a heroes journey, but not a very interesting one. The gates were interesting, and a lot of the rest felt like filler, with little known about the rest of the story away from our central character.
*************** SPOILER WARNING *******************
The central mystery, the Delvers, were clearly an offshoot from early AI(s), that seemed obvious at the end of the second book, so I found this book a long drawn out story with our heroine getting lost in herself. I found it a bit of a slog, had it on audio, and ran it at 3.5x speed just to get through it.
The ending was not bad, and clearly interesting things happened in the Somewhere (which would have balanced this book better), so I will probably get the 4th book, but I was relieved when it ended.
Will have to go back to the Mistborn and Reckoners and get my mojo back up for his next book.
