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.

    "Fantastic story - perfect narration"

    This book was fantastic. I love books that I have no idea how they're going to end and this was one of them. I had some ideas but I just loved the characters in the story. I thought the narration was absolutely wonderful. It felt like there was a different person narrating each individual character. I will definitely be buying the next book and will be getting the audible addition as well because it is so fun to listen to.

    Story
    "A world where Magneto wins."

    A comic book, without comics. Do you like X-men? Does absolute power corrupt absolutely? I'll give you a hint: maybe.
    The narrator is excellent, doing unique dialogue for all the characters.

    "Awesome"

    The story pulled me in and I couldn't put it down. The way Sanderson uses characters' powers and flaws to define them, adds depth to the characters and the story.

    Story
    "The last 4 chapters make the book"

    For most of the book, it's a dude complaining or pining over a girl. Roughly every tenth sentence. But the action is well written and the build up to and the actual final fight is great fun and worth the read.

    Story
    "Not my favorite by this author."
    If you could sum up Steelheart in three words, what would they be?

    Supervillians vs. Nerds


    What three words best describe MacLeod Andrews’s performance?

    I enjoyed this story, but it wasn't Sanderson at his most captivating. I thought MacLeod Andrews did a fair job with the narration but the tone used for the protagonist actually turned me off of the character because it made him sound kind of annoying and dorky. I've preferred Michael Kramer's readings for Sanderson much more.. Still, I did just buy book 2.

    Story
    "Orginal Imagine if the Xmen were evil"
    Would you listen to Steelheart again? Why?

    Yes, it is an outstanding story that captures the imagination and has great characters that feel real. The world Sanderson created in this book feels real...you can feel the hopelessness of the ordinary people under the crushing rule of these anti superheros.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Surprised and ready to listen to some more and I am looking at his other books....very good story.


    What three words best describe MacLeod Andrews’s voice?

    Good Good Good


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "Sanderson gets me every time"

    I read almost exclusively fantasy novels. I go through one book every week or so. I've been doing this for over 10 years.

    I have never been addicted to an author like I am with Brandon Sanderson. This series is no exception. Just when I think that I can be the wet blanket that ruins the ending for everyone, I am always surprised. Maybe I'm just dumb. But even so, I am always at high alert towards the end of these Sanderson novels.
