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.

    "A Great Book that Needs to be a Movie!"

    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.

    "Great book"

    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.

    "Great Story"

    I could not put it down. Way to take something iconic in our society and make a dystopia out of it.

    "An entertaining twist on the superhero story"
    What made the experience of listening to Steelheart the most enjoyable?

    Sanderson has written a fast paced romp through the steel city of Newcago and populated it with characters worth caring about. He provides an interesting twist on the Xmen by making all of the superheroes bad guys driven insane by their power. I like that, for once, the heroes are our everyday normals and not some idiot on a power trip.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    MacLeod's narration is superb. His voice give additional heft to all the other characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, the story is rather predictable and the author laid out enough foreshadowing that I saw the twists coming from pretty far out. Also, the main character is a bit of a nagging retard. He does get better as the story goes on fortunately. The story itself kept me hooked until the end and I was disappointed that he hasn't finished writing this series.

    "Compelling read"

    Not sure about the narrator's voices, but that's just a matter of personal preference. The story, characters, and universe created by Sanderson are rich and exciting.

    Fantastic story and written very well. I also love that the author uses invented cursing that applies to the world of the story. Great book!
