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.

I liked the premise of the story, and the ending was pretty satisfying, but I prefer characters with more depth. If you haven't already, just read (or listen to) the Mistborn trilogy. After Steelheart, I didn't have much of a desire to keep going in the series, the book works well as a stand-alone novel.
