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.

Superb twist of the superhero genre!
August 13th, 2014
This book was so much fun, the pace of the story does not let you sleep, just take a couple of days off work and finish it. Sanderson's originality and story telling ability just blows me away. Bottom line, just read it, and read the rest of his books you won't be disappointed in the slightest.

A a reader of several of Brandon Sanderson's books I was expecting the unexpected and was not disappointed. Steelheart moves at a cracking pace with characters that were multi facetted and a couple of twists along the way. Look forward the to follow up!
