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.

    "A great story"

    When I first started this book I thought it wasn't really my style. As it continued I realized that my impression was correct, I don't usually read books like this.

    This book made me realize that I needed to start.

    Fantastic story, unpredictable, engrossing, original. The narrator was great. I highly recommended you read this book, especially if it isn't "your style."

    "Best book not in the cosmere."

    I think the best review someone can give is simply to say it was written by Brandon Sanderson. That says enough.

    "Addicting!"

    Characters are great, story is great, lots of twists and turns, feels, laughs, and all around cute/action packed story. Incredibles meets the cast of Atlantis if you know what I mean.

    "not disappointed"

    I was afraid I would be disappointed after Mistborn. Thankfully that was not the case.

    "Epic!!"

    Fantastic book for any fiction, fantasy, sci fi fan. Great story with more than one twist I can't wait to read (or listen) to the rest. Quite possibly Sanderson's best work.
