Publisher's Summary

They told David it was impossible - that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand. 

Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. He found some of those answers in Firefight. Now he has to decide what to do with them.... 

Calamity is about what you do to fill your heart once you have vengeance.

Genius as always

Sanderson is a Genius. Thank you.

And MacLeod Andrews is utterly brilliant, one of the best narrators I’ve listened to.

An unexpected but brilliant ending

All four books were amazing. Calamity ended like I never expected. It was a fulfilling ending..a little sad on Prof's side though but....in all..a wonderful ending..

So so !

Don’t get me wrong, Brandon Sanderson is an excellent writer but this trilogy was a waste of time for me, if I was much younger like fifteen then it would have been perfect but I’m not and this trilogy is way too childish for me.

So yes I do recommend this trilogy for young adults only.

Surprisingly good!

Not as 'epic' ;) as Sanderson's Mistborn but a great tale, characters with real depth and almost tangible emotions.

Good conclusion

What can I say..... it's a good wrap up to the trilogy. Nothing hugely "epic", but everything is in keeping with the previous books, and the outcome is satisfying if not unexpected. Some good character development, and all's well that ends well. (naturally, a little twist towards the end that is typical of Sanderson, but it all still hangs together appropriately).

Not sure how much more there was to develop in this series, so probably right that it ends here.

amazing

I love sanderson so I may be biased but this latest novel from the reckoners trilogy is fitting way to end the series. I don't usually leave reviews, especially with a title like this that will doubtless have more then enough feedback to encourage others to dive on in. but having just finished listening I'm moved to comment on the fluidity of writing here and masterful performance from the narrator. in David, sanderson has created a truly unique character. one who stands apart from any leading character I can remember from other books I've read.

Great reader/actor

I love the storey and am never sure on switching from printed to audio, how it can affect the characters you create within your mind me. This actor is fantastic, the genuine emotion he displayed and read... Simply great.

I liked this trilogy a lot

Another great story from BS and very well narrated by MacLeod Andrews.
A satisfying end to the Reckoners series.
I recommend highly if you like Brandon Sanderson's books - very different to Stormlight & Mistborn but great in its own right.

Exceptional.

There is nothing more to say other than brilliant. There are few writers who can submerge you in a story like Brandon Sanderson. Loved every minute.

Really came together at the very end

Wow, did not expect calamity turning out to be ... Well lets just say did not expect that. The story was as no where as engaging as the first two but still it was fun listening to performance bringing the character and events to life. To be honest through out you'd think there is no way the author can explain calamity and all the other story unexplained anomalies. However, the author managed to tie everything neatly and satisfactorily at the end. I still would love another sequel although i doubt there will be.

Really good

I need to change the definition of perfection, because this audiobook really deserves all the praise I can give it. The narration is perfect and the ending wasn't what I thought it would be.

Sanderson never fails to please!

As always Brandon Sanderson delivers a great story. He is a master of writing great characters. David is engaging and quirky,like a meatball at a boxing match. Don’t worry, you’ll get it when you read the book. Nice little take on a well known hero. I won’t spoil the surprise here. The plot twist at the end was totally unexpected and tied things up nicely. The narration was superb. Many narrators balk at sound effects such as crying and sneezing but MacLeod Andrews jumps right in. I highly recommend this trilogy.

Awesome

Somehow this series stays amazing the whole way though and the ending is absolutely satisfying. Massive emotional roller coaster. Probably my favourite book at the moment even as a sequel! Would 100% recommend!

Loved it!

I picked this book because it was narrated by MacLeod Andrews then realised id read other books by Brandon Sanderson and really liked them.
Brilliantly original storyline, fast paced and engrossing.
As usual the narration is fantastic (how does he DO all those voices so seamlessly??)
Highly recommended
