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.

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.
I like the narration very distinct characters. The book is classic Sanderson you won't be disappointed
Can't wait for the next book
Not the best but up there
This was the first book I have read by Sanderson, and if his others are like this it wont be the last
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.
I loved this book. it was well written, well narrated, and has great pacing. I'm excited for the next books in the series.
I really enjoyed the book and appreciate that it kept the language clean so that my girls can listen to it.
I really enjoyed the anti superhero world created in this novel. It was exciting and interesting. The characters were fun. The narration was good.
And an awesome story to go along with it. Fast paced, amazing characterization a, a wholly unique world. Great book all around!
