This post will contain spoilers for bothSkywardandStarsight.

Skyward 3 cover and title reveal

As announced by Brandon himself, TheBook Formerly Known As Nowhere now has a real title, description, release date(s) and no less than two covers, as Brandon's American and British publishers decided to announce them both at once.

So without further ado, here comesCytonic.

Alongside it we have the UK release; if you've been following the leaks, you might've seen this one pop up before, but now it's official!

As with the previous books in the series, the American cover was created byCharlie Bowater, while the British art is the work of Sam Green. Preorders for both versions are already up on your bookseller website of choice; per Brandon's tweet, the book will release on November 23rd, 2021in the US, and on November 25thin UK.

To round up the Cytonic goodies, we also have thedescription for the book and it's... not very heavy on the actual plot.

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 Detritusandshe 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 traveled light-years from home as an undercover 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’s 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.

We actually did a predictions podcast for Cytonic (though we didn't know its name then) back in March which might interest you:

  • Sunreach: the final draft for this one has been completed, meaning it's basically doneas far as writing is concerned; of course, there's still much that has to happen before it's ready for release. This one will be written from the perspective of FM, one of the Skyward Flight pilots who survived the first book to later be largelyabsent from Starsight.
  • ReDawn: As of this writing, the second novellais sitting at 43% of its first draft. We don't know whose point of view this will be following, butReDawnis the home planet of the comatose alien Alanik, so...
