From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart.

They told David it was impossible—that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart—invincible, immortal, unconquerable—is dead. And he died by David's hand. 

Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. 

Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers. - Goodreads

I was not a fan of this book until about page 300, then BAM Brandon Sanderson punch to the face. Seriously though I was like "Brandon this isn't you, why so slow and meticulous?" Then all of a sudden I'm on a Sanderson roller coaster ride, a sander-coaster if you will. THE ENDING OF THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD. Ugh, how dare I doubt you Brandon. Honestly, as if you would ever let me down. Do you know what I hate though? "Sparks" as a swear word. Killed me. The entire book. Hate. It. Now I have to wait for the third, and it is the most unfortunate news of my week. Maybe I'll just go read mistborn again.

  1. Nice article, thank you for the sharing


  2. Steelheart will completely keep you guessing! This book has so many crazy mysteries and twists. And even though I guessed a few of them, there was still that burning desire to see if I was right! So I had to keep reading!

    If you're into superheroes, dystopian books, epic badas$ rebels, explosions, and crazy motorcycle car chases, you NEED to give this book a go!
