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.

    "This should be a graphic novel"

    A very different take on "superheroes" and how power affects the individual and effects the world around them.

    Story
    "Sparking good."

    You hardly notice this is a YA book. The characters are 18 and older so while it is another dystopia book, it is completely different than a lot of the books out there in the same genre. The metaphors are ridiculous, making me roll my eyes and laughing at the same time, just waiting for the next one. This story did not head in the direction I was expecting it to, which is good in my book. I've had several coworkers recommend Brandon Sanderson to be and so I picked this one first. Although according to my coworkers they think the other series are better. Since this one was really good, I will be getting more in this series and trying others soon. Narrator is really good and I would be happy to listen to other books by him.

    "Good story with some decent plot and twists"

    Good story with some decent plot and twists. Narration was excellent with the different accents for different characters, making it an awesome auditory experience.

    "Fantastic"

    One of the best stories I've listened to in a long time. No gratuitis sex , no outright cursing. I will listen to the other two books in the series.

    "Twists and turns"

    I really liked this book and the narrator was on point! Great twists and turns, the narrative led you one way and burst out behind you with the truth!

    "Great story. Kind of obvious twists."

    I like the idea and the execution but "twists" and surprises are pretty obvious and I found myself annoyed with the charachters for not seeing the obvious.
