Steelheart, Book One of the Reckoners, by Brandon Sanderson, A Review

David Charleston loses his father at a young age when one of the most powerful Epics attacks the city of Chicago. Chicago becomes Newcago, but the name is not the only change. Most of the city is changed to steel by its tyrannical ruler, Steelheart, who uses other Epics powers to also keep the city in constant night and full of fear.

Later, at age 18, David finds his chance to become one of The Reckoners, an underground group of talented people that fight against the Epics. This finally gives him the opportunity he’s been dreaming of for the past 10 years, to kill Steelheart. However, David learns so much in this process, perhaps even that friendship and love are more important than vengeance.

This was such a fun book to read and I can’t wait to continue my Reckoners journey with Firefight. Steelheart is full of non-stop action and plot twists that made this an exciting page-turner.

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
