Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great but lacking."

    I had read the book in my time before I actually listen to it. It's still great and amazing but the person who did the voice "McCloud Andrews. Has such a stale voice. I wish it would be better but it's not bad enough to ruin the book. I still recommend this as an audio book for anyone who hasn't read the book before, but if you have read don't waste your time or your money.

    "A tad predictable but engaging story"

    Some of the major plotlines were foreshadowed in a tad predictable way but over all i really enjoyed it

    "Hidden Gem"

    I got this book during an Audible sale, and wasn't expecting much. It was my first Sanderson novel, and won't be my last. Quick moving, well-written with satisfying plot twists. If you like superhero/mutant/sci-fi action thrillers, you'll love Steelheart!

    " Exciting and awesome"

    Steelheart is an epic adventure that leaves the reader thoroughly satisfied, yet wanting more. The characters are memorable and unique. The story is exciting, fresh, and unpredictable. The author expertly blends a nice balance of romance, action, and comedy. This is the type of book that would translate perfectly into a TV series or movie adaptation. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes sci-fi, super powers, and quirky dorky protagonists.

    "Action Packed"

    i didn't think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. It was a great read from start to finish and a lot of action. I was very excited to see it is #1 in a series. I can't wait to read the others.
