Steelheart is Imaginative, Action Packed, and Fun



I’m currently in the middle of reading Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson and will post a review when I’m done. I will say this, if you like epic fantasy, you won’t want to miss out on Radiance. I enjoyed the Way of Kings, quite a bit and so far Words of Radiance has been even better.

This brings me to Sanderson’s Steelheart which is a fun post apocalyptic story where the superheros are evil. Steelheart, is the main villain who is supposedly invulnerable and the main character knows his weakness. A group known as the Reckoners fights and kills these evil superheros, if they can.

This quotation from the description it what sucked me in to getting the novel:

My name is David Charleston. I’m not one of the Reckoners, but I intend to join them. I have something they need. Something precious, something incredible. Not an object, but an experience. I know his secret.

I’ve seen Steelheart bleed.

Sanderson includes a number of twists and turns and I found the ending very satisfying. If you’ve never read one of his books, this is a good introduction.
