"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 isn't just an anti hero story. There's so more than meets the eye. This is my introduction into Brandon Sanderson's writing. I truly loved every moment in Steelheart. The story and characters really make you cheer for good to win.
I'm so glad I gave Steelheart a chance. After all the hype surrounding this I wasn't sure I'd like it as much as everyone else. Brandon has a magical way of writing and keeps you second guessing all the way to the end.
I will pick up Firefight, which is the sequel as soon as I can.
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley.
