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.

I almost didn't finish this book when I started. It was hard for me to get into. I was driving when I started and I couldn't down load another book so I kept listening. I am so glad I did! I ended up loving the book and couldn't stop listening to it.
Awesome voice acting (..and I can be picky). Story pacing is great. Enough twists on old narratives to make it engaging. Not too dense with the cannon so you can listen casually, maybe miss a thing or two and be fine.
Great performance. The author kept me trying to unravel the mysteries until the very end.
Great story that was entertaining and had twists and turns, romance without sex and hardly any swearing.
make ernie cline blush. this book is awful. it has a tone that does not match the grim setting. every plot twist can be seen miles away. whenever there is danger it is dispatched with a coincidence.
a welcome inversion of the classic comic book hero. Unsatisfied by the last Superman movie? Consider Steelheart a chance to explore those themes in a fun and different way.
