I totally listened to this out of the order of the series, but I couldn’t help myself. I wanted more from the amazing universe that Brandon Sanderson has created in this series.
I was right, this was a great Reckoners thirst quencher, perfect for wetting your mind for the next book to be released.
In Firefight I thought that David had become a bit reckless and way too confident. I think that Mitosis does a good job of addressing that fact. Here the Professor is out in Babylon doing reconnaissance for the upcoming adventure there. Then David and the Reckoners find a new high epic, Mitosis, in New Cago. Of course that will not stand.
Without giving anything away, let me say this. If you have already listened to Steelheat and find yourself wanting to be brought back to the Epic universe, all be it for an hour, you will not be disappointed at all. Fun, face paced, everything you will want other than length.
Macleaod Andrews delivers again. Quite honestly one of the most diverse, in the sense of voices, narrators I have ever listened to. Able to spit out various different accents and sexes at the drop of a hat. There is a reason I simply search audiobooks by his name alone.

I wish I had known Mitosis takes place before Firefight. I'm sure when it was initially released it was a nice appetizer or tease leading to the next release, but since I'm stumbling along after the fact, it is a frustration. I was listening to Firefight and they mention a fight with Mitosis. It was something I felt I should know about. Sure enough, it's a very short story that is an event between Steelheart and Firefight. It is very condensed and feels like an episode to a television series, if The Reckoners were such. I enjoyed it, but I think it should have been attached to one of the other two books for ease of continuity.
Yes, and I did. It's a quick listen, but it's important to tie the first and second books together.
Sanderson did a great job with Steelheart, and I highly recommend that book as a read; however, Mitosis has the feel of a one- or two-chapter "filler". It could easily have been placed into Firefight (the next book in the series) as a reintroduction to the characters and storyline.
It is well-written and the narrator does a good job, but I would not recommend spending money on this unless it is only a couple bucks.
the book was good. however I don't like that it was so short. like he had a deadline and had to release something.
Sanderson keeps his characters in perfection and writes soundly , also the reader is the perfect person for "David " and all the other characters.
the main struggle facing the Reckoners is too simple, but I guess you can only do so much with a story this short. If your a fan you will enjoy it.
