Firstborn by Brandon Sanderson

Or, he must be stopped, obviously. But instead of fulfilling that hope, his father announces Dennison’s reassignment as an adjutant and Squadron-commander to High Admiral Kern aboard the Stormwind – one of the most prestigious flagships in the entire Imperial Fleet. Dennison Crestmar has lived his entire life in the shadow of his much-older brother, Varion.

Upon arriving at the Stormwind, Dennison is escorted to a simulation room where High Admiral Kern is observing the what Dennison instantly recognizes as the battle of Seapress ; his brother’s first victory fresh out of the academy that begun the Reunification War.

I was surprised in a good way. While safe aboard his flagship, there were two ways for Dennison to watch the battle. Tor once again proves to be masterful at putting out science fiction shorts. Lists with This Book.

Aug 22, Akwa Timba rated it really liked it. Okay, it’s a short story, but it felt like he wanted it to be a full-length novel or maybe a ten-volume series of doorstoppers — damn you, Sanderson, for making The Way of Kings so goodand had to compress it into sandderson short story.
