From the #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

I am surprised at how good this was. I was skeptical before I started reading it: when I looked at the tags, I was "eh? dystopian? MEH" since I wasn't in the mood for this genre. So I was going to read the sample only, and boy, I was hooked from the first chapter. What a way to introduce the main ch...
This book was a lot of fun to read, although it doesn't quite compare with Sanderson's Stormlight Archive books. This is very different from his epic fantasy, set in a version of our own world, after people began developing super-powers. Unfortunately, everyone with super powers became violent socio...
What a fantastic story, Sanderson is such a gifted and talented story teller. All his characters have such unique qualities about them, that just made them special, something that makes reading about their lives an epic journey. Even if that journey isn't so joyful. I love how this story had some se...
