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.

    "lol "wild cards" but cleaner... and better."

    like "wild cards" but cleaner and a lot more fun. because let's be honest. how much sex and cursing can you have? this book doesn't. characters are awesome and believable. feels pretty true to how people would be if they woke up tomorrow as "gods". leaves you wanting the next book. which I'm gonna go find now.

    "Fantastic"

    What an incredible thrill! This exhilarating book is yet another testament to Brandon Sanderson's creative genius! This book had plot twists and turns that I hadn't seen coming and what a joy of was to be transported into another reality both from the brilliant mind of its author! Beautiful! I can't wait to start Firefight and conclude the story with Calamity! Thank you Brandon, thank you!

    "Great YA fantasy from a great Adult Fantasy Author"

    I love Brandon Sanderson. He re-kindled my passion for the fantasy genre. I am a very open minded reader but am proud to have retained my ability to smell a stinker. My Sanderson fan boy inside me doubts the man could write a stinker, so far he's right. Objectively speaking, this book isn't vastly different from his others in terms of professional storytelling, world building, and character development. His style of dropping little clues and tieing them all together for an epic climax still manages to come through in this YA novel. If you are a fan of super power individuals, fantasy, or just in the mood for a good book/great listen please check this out.

    "More depth than typical superhuman story"

    There are a lot of things about this book that make you examine the super human mythos, if you let them. Some of the foreshadowing felt heavy handed and predictable, until the end. It was my experiences with other writers that made it feel that way. Sanderson sprinkles plenty of clues, but not all of them pan out.

    "Knees -- The metaphors!"

    I loved this! I've read it several times, but there audio production of this book is enthralling. If adds to a solid story base by accenting characters with their own "style". A fluid and hilarious read!
