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.

First of all, just to prevent mistakes - this book has a YA vibe.
But if youre ok with a teenage protagonist, then Im sure youll enjoy this book.
Its funny, thrilling and overall a great listen.
And without noticing, the characters grow on you.
Also the narrator does a great job, with both the male and female parts.
This story was a fun fantasy I didn't want to end. Just full of adventure and imagery.
The narration was skillfully done. I can't wait to start the next book.
Tell us about yourself!
enjoyed the book a nice surprise for a new book plan on listening to the entire series can't wait to see what happens next looking forward to another good series
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
One of my favorite series. It has everything action, humor, sarcasm, heroes, and villains. It is told from the perspective of a young man and follows the classic theme of good vs evil. It kept my attention the entire time, which can be hard to do because my mind tends to wonder if the book is not entertaining. I've listened to all 3 books in the series and I enjoyed them all. For parents - no graphic violence, no language, and no coitus. Let my 13 year old listened to it after I did and loved it.
I was reluctant to read this when it first came out. Now, I'm kind of disappointed that I did. I really enjoyed the twist on the villain/superhero trend. Very nicely done!
Buy the book, get the audiobook, read it somewhere. Anywhere. I plead to the people who will check the reviews, and am saddened for the people who will just skim by this work of art. My first review on audible and the only thing I can think to say is you need this in your life.
