From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson, comes the first book in a new, action-packed thrill ride of a series - Steelheart. 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. For years, like the Reckoners, David's been studying, and planning - and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.
He's seen Steelheart bleed.
And he wants revenge.

Keep The Faith
I have enjoyed a few Sanderson's stories,
I loved "Atlantis" and "Steelheat" enough I listened to both straight through! However years stretched between each purchase. In between I found his others works compelling but my mood depressed me while I listening to the long epic fantasies and I lost all interest. It has taken years for me to risk reading anything published by Sanderson.
Now I am glad I did! I will be Reading the other books in this series today!! 👍
Brandon Sanderson writes the best fight scenes. I felt like I was watching a movie. loved the reader too. He did a great job with different voices (girls included) and accents.
Loved the main character - David. Thank Sanderson for a hero with a sense of humor! The action was very well done. Cody has to be one of the funniest characters in YA books.
The performance by Macleod Andrews is top notch! I want to listen more from him, right after Firefight, of course.
Fast moving through out. Excellent narration. Story is different and powerful. Now I'm moving on to book 2
It seems like kind of a tired concept, and the writing can definitely be a little clunky at times (particularly, for whatever reason, in the first couple chapters), but I really liked listening to this. The characters are good and I think it's funny. The tension builds and builds and by the time you get to the climax, you're bought in completely.
It's just really, really entertaining.
It was a horribly written story with no decent plot.
CERTAINLY nothing by Anderson!
He was ok. He did an adequate job. He just picked the wrong story or author to have his name associated with.
ABSOLUTELY NONE. I could not even finish. It was stupid from the start
