I really enjoyed Steelheart and so did my girlfriend. We both didn't know what to expect, but once we got started we couldn't stop. The story is really fresh and fun and makes for a good read/listen.
Megan... what guys would like a girl like that... Even my girlfriend likes her... Just saying she's cool.
I love the combat scene, all of them. The detail just makes the whole thing come together.
Superhero's have nothing on these villains...
This was a great book and I cant wait to read/listen to the others.
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
great post apocalyptic sci-fi. The main character has lots of potential. I first real a reckoners short, and it got me hooked. I have already started the second book in the series. great plot, characters are interesting too, plus the book has enough plot twists to make it bearable. mid-teens in difficulty.
Yes yes and more yes this an epic story as to characters are. this book is definitely deserve and required multiple times, cant wait for the other books in this series.
The most memorable moment if the final fight where prof, david and the reckoner defeat Steel heart that was an epic battle.
SEVERELY DYSLEXIC. When I was young my mom would read to me of a world that was just out of my reach. thank you Mom, the Authors and Audible
What can I say, I love his writing. Always well picked narrator's and all his books, large and small worth every credit.
Surpassed my expectations. First book I have read by this author . I have read a lot of fiction, a lot in this genre. You will know where the story is headed, but how he gets to the denouement is entirely unique. Characters are very unique. Surprises ahead! Not predictable or formulaic. In some ways reminds me of a Sam Spade Mystery because it is told in first person. It is not a mystery per se Yes I will read the sequel!
I think the narrator was a little grating. He is obviously talented, just my ears...
Thank you Mr. Sanderson!
Macleod Andrews truly brings David Charleston to life! His performance here is excellent. To say nothing of Brandon Sanderson and the incredible story to be found within his Reckoners series! I highly recommend this book and audible audio book. An easy five stars.
One of my pet peeves with Audible is they don't always identify a book as Young Adult, and since I would be classified as Old Adult, this can be a problem. I bought this book thinking it was a sci-fi steampunk novel, and probably would have stayed away if I knew it was YA. That being said, I'm glad I bought it! The writer shows great imagination, painting and populating Newcago City quite well. There is something refreshing in this day and age for the harshest expletive being "Sparks!" The plot & subplots keep you interested, and the narration was quite good.
Tell us about yourself!
I don't often say a book is a MUST HAVE but this is exactly that, It's an Awesome spin on a Super Hero Style in Brandon Sanderson 's own fresh spin on Calamity.
If you only buy one series this year ensure that this and the following books are on or near the top of the list.
Good verses Evil involving supernatural powers and underdogs doing well and proving that interval doesn't necessarily mean always evil and vice versa.
A truly Fresh spin on an old story with EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!
This was a leap of faith & I'm glad I bought the book. It's a series with promise because it could go anywhere. The main character, David, has the coolest lines & he certainly grows on you. The narration was super...well worth a listen
