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.

    "great sci fi"

    wonderful action constantly. Little back story given only as needed, and without lengthy explanations. Kept action going. A great story of redemption, and justice fulfilled. characters were all three dimensional, all of them had wonderful developed personalities. You'll love this story if you like science fiction

    "Loved it! Suspense is amazing - a "page turner""

    No spoilers here, just saying the ending is fantastic. Really, really great. :) If you already like Sanderson, then you'll love him after this.

    "Good clean reading"

    I enjoyed the story a lot. it has a great twist on "supers". I thought the narrator did a great job of portraying each character, and the story itself was a good one. I especially liked how I could listen to this in the car with my kids and not worry about swearing or adult themes.
    It was a good clean story without being boring.

    "Can't go wrong with Brandon Sanderson"

    Sanderson is the modern master of epic fantasy but I think he is at his best with shorter tighter stories like The Reckoners Series. A book I have bought to give to friends many times I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "Great ideas, has fun and action"
    What did you love best about Steelheart?

    The main character is nice, does lots of mistakes but he is relatable.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. His tone was a bit strange at times but all in all it was a good narration


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Superman is a villain.


    Any additional comments?

    There are two twists, one I saw coming (but I read a lot of books so that may be at fault). I want to read the rest of the trilogy.
