Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.

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.

If you could sum up Steelheart in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, Intriguing, and Intelligent.

What other book might you compare Steelheart to and why?

I am not sure I could compare this work with any other book I have listened to. It has a similar flavor to the Mistborn series as well as a series called Way of the Shadow. That being said its an entirely different perspective on some pretty intelligent plot twists and it makes it unique and unlike any other book.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Macleod Andrews?

Not sure. It took me a little bit to get use to the narration and at first to me it distracted from the story.

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

Definitely. I hated to put this book down and only did so when absolutely necessary.

Any additional comments?

If you like this book then try out other brandon Sanderson books. It is a good read and enjoyable as an audiobook.
