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 will. 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.

Loved this book!!
The story was so unique and the voice actor had me at the edge of my seat. Can't wait to see what is next for David, Megan, and the Reckoners!

I was a little skeptical when I first used a credit for this book because I wasn't a very sci-fi savy reader.
But as the story started to unfold, I couldn't stop listening.
Classic heroin overcoming surmluntable odds and the voice actor was absolutely amazing!
To anyone who is on the fence, give the clip a listen, and then jump in!
I cannot wait for what Brandon Sanderson has next for Spin.
