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.

Wow, Brandon Sanderson can tell a story! I noticed he had many books with VERY high ratings so I was interested in giving one of his books a go. After Steelheart, I want to give all his books a go.
This story has richly developed characters in an action packed story that had me sitting in my car well after I arrived at my destination just to hear a little bit more. The title of my review is just one of many bad metaphors that provide humor in tense situations of this book.
Narration was excellent. MacLeod Andrews provides very distinct voices and inflections that bring the story alive. You can’t ask for a better narrator.
What more can be said other than I’m looking forward to book 2.
Audio book what's me to explain why this book is a must read, but I hate exposing myself, I do what I do because I like what I do, and let me say you will like it too.
I liked the entire book and didn't become bored with one word. This book is great for anyone who enjoys fantasy and mystery, but can use their imagination without any limits. The only thing I wish happened was that there was a movie to go along with it! But as far as the book goes, I can't wait to read the next in this series.
It reads like an old comic book, 1st person perspective from David. A charming protagonist who's humor will make anyone smile. The antagonist steel heart is so evil you will want him gone too.
This is a book to have extra copies of. I share them with friends and family. It's short, and a page turner, like all of Sanderson's books.
