    After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover, and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins the Bonds Magi. It is a fall-out that will pit both men against Locke's own long-lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life, and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds, Sabetha has just one goal-to destroy Locke forever.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Wow what a book! Just finished it and my only complaint is it wasn't longer! Can't wait for the next one to come out! How the heck does Brandon come up with so many great books? When Calamity came, Brandon Sanderson's super power was definitely writing!

    But I really liked this book. If you are looking for something that will take your mind off work for a bit this is a great pick up. I love super hero books, but this one was even better than usual. A few things were predictable but that didn't really bother me. I'm not gonna recap the plot since you can read it at the top. I'm just gonna play cheer leader and say "GO GET THIS BOOK!" That's all.

    The end is coming. Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the King of the Northmen still stands firm and there’s only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted.

    Erec is faced with even more daunting tasks, choices, and dangers. Not only does the latest contest to become king appear to be a suicide mission, but it means more than just winning the crown of Alypium; if Erec doesn't succeed, then Upper Earth could disappear forever. So Erec must set out to retrieve the five Awen from their mystical hiding places and unite them, a herculean undertaking that has laid waste to all those who have attempted it.

    I really enjoyed these three books! They are easy reads that are great if you are just wanting to mentally escape from paying some bills! A very Harry Potter type book. Its predictable but not in a bad way. Buy it, enjoy it.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    I originally started reading Brandon's stuff because of the Wheel of Time series. Mistborn was my first taste of Brandon's work and I absolutely loved it! I have to say, it just keeps getting better! He develops characters very well and in a way that always keeps you involved in the story. If your looking for a good read (not a quick read) pick up this book...figuratively of course.

    Not a bad start for a series. I hope that it does pick up a bit though. Good read.
