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.

    Story
    "Pretty good if you're not expecting much"
    What disappointed you about Steelheart?

    This story had a decent plot and plenty of action but something about the writing style of the author just didn't make it engaging to listen to. I just couldn't get caught up in the plot or connect with the characters. Maybe it's because I'm jaded having just finished the Powder Mage trilogy by Brian McClellan, which is wildly incredible. This book just failed to capture by interest.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brandon Sanderson again?

    Probably not.

    "Good plot but not for the mature reader"

    Interesting plot, but narration is cheesy and struck me as geared more for teens. Lots of repetitive words like sparks, calamity are severely overused and become irritating.

    "Love the premise."

    I really enjoyed the anti superhero world created in this novel. It was exciting and interesting. The characters were fun. The narration was good.

    "Good book and narration"

    I enjoyed the story and characters in it. I will look into the next two books and see if they are just as good as the first.

    "Excellent book excellent narrator."

    I usually guess the twist in Sanderson books. This one threw in a little extra that suprised me. Very fun.
