Punishments are for those who show up late...

Sixteen-year-old Ivy Gould's world has turned upside down and all she wants to do is survive the rest of the school year and start her summer internship at the medical center.

But then a mysterious agency shows up at her school and recruits a select group of students. And she's one of them.

They claim terrorists are attacking the country and the agency needs students to join their cause to fight back and protect what's left.

Are they telling the truth? Or is it a lie?

She might never know. Because the students who fail to report on time for transportation to the training facility aren't lucky enough to find out.

Now she faces a much bigger challenge... and something far more horrifying. Will she overcome the odds? Or is she lost forever?

Outcast, the fourth book in The Hexon Code series, is an emotional story of terrible mistakes, huge regrets, and solid determination to make things right.

The sequel to the New York Times bestseller Skyward!

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, the Mistborn trilogy, and the Stormlight Archive comes the second book in an epic series about a girl with a secret in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.

All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she's a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing. The rumors of his cowardice are true--he deserted his flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.

Spensa is sure there's more to the story. And she's sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars--and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.

But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself--and she'll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.

"It is impossible to turn the pages fast enough." --Booklist

"He's simply a brilliant writer. Period." --Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times bestseller The Name of the Wind, on Brandon Sanderson.
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

From Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, Words of Radiance, and the internationally bestselling Mistborn series, comes the first book in an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity's future.

Spensa's world has been under attack for decades. Now pilots are the heroes of what's left of the human race, and becoming one has always been Spensa's dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring skyward and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father's--a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa's chances of attending flight school at slim to none.

No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, yet fate works in mysterious ways. Flight school might be a long shot, but she is determined to fly. And an accidental discovery in a long-forgotten cavern might just provide her with a way to claim the stars.
