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.

    "Funny and entertaining."

    I loved it and am excited for the next one in the series:)
    At first it does not seem to demonstrate the complexed thinking and plot that is typical for Brandon Sanderson but by the ending, once again I felt baffled at how well he brings if all together.

    I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.

    "So Epic So Much Awesomness"

    I first heard of this book in the car while my friend was driving. The story, people, and plot just took me it honestly was a grear book to listen to. What a great book, where the people with great power are the ones who are evil and normal average people must rise and face a greater challenge.

    "Wow—Extremely impressed! By everything!"

    I am amazed by Brandon's creativity. The man is a genius. I was also very impressed by the performance of Macleod Andrews. The guy is a true artist; he is incredibly talented.

    "Fantastic!"

    The story felt a little slow in points near the middle, but definitely picked up near the end. Lots of plot twists! Macleod Andrews was fantastic as well.

    Quite liked this. Going to tell my friends to listen to it.

    "Excellent"

    I have not enjoyed a book this much for a couple years. The story and characters were well developed and engaging. The narration was spot on. The fact is I thoroughly enjoyed MacLeod's performance. It was also family friendly, without foul language or adult content. I will certainly look for other books by this author and by the narrator.

    Overall: A
    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.
