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.
Brandon Sanderson is my favorite. FAVORITE. So when I heard he was writing a YA dystopian about evil superheroes (supervillians?) and the normal humans who fight them, I was a goner. Sanderson is a genius, and this is pretty much guaranteed to be a standout in the YA dystopian genre. Why is September so far awayyyy?? :(
