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 Sci-Fi"

    Brandon seems to understand how to tell a great story without the need to lace it gratuitous sex or language. More artists should follow his example.

    This story was fun, unexpected and filled with great characters and a solid story. I am anxious to get to the next book in the series.

    "Feels short. fast paced."

    Nice tale, if a bit one dimensional. more like a long short story than a novel. keeps one interested but I failed to become attached to any of the characters.

    Story
    "Excellent and Imaginative"

    If you're into a comic book style story with a realistic edge to it, this is for you. The super powers are present, but not over the top. The story is character driven, unlike many comics, rather than conflict driven, IMO. The narrative offers characters you bond with, question, and even relate to in some regards. My favorite character is Cody.

    Story
    "Enjoyable and a pleasure to "Read""
    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Andrews did a wonderful job capturing the spirit and character of the members of this story. Well Done!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would not be able to finish this in one sitting, but I did steal time to read, and looked forward to times when I could read Steelheart


    Any additional comments?

    Filled with action, surprises, and metaphors. This was a pleasure to read, and the tension only increased as the end neared. I plan to re-read it, and share it with my children and grandchildren.

    Story
    "comicbook based wasn't my taste but narrator great"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    if you like comic book super heros its great just not my taste.


    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    not well advertised as comicbook style


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    I really like this mans ability to run the gambit of voices. I so far like them all. The deep male Russian style accent is my favorite so far.


    Could you see Steelheart being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    With the love for comicon, avengers batman etc sure


    Any additional comments?

    Good book just not for me. Keep up the good work there are plenty out there that love this type of thing.
