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 realise 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.

My first Brandon Sanderson series and as a middle age adult who is fond of comics from days gone by, this author manages to recapture what I feel is missing from many books these days, a level of originality and description that makes me want to see the story through the eyes of the main character. I love the the level of super powers used and the storylines the character have. Some characters frustrate me so much while others I just want to see being lifted to the spotlight, which adds to the emotions this book draws out of me. The way this novel holds me, it makes it very hard to stop for sleep! The person who reads this series is able to capture the voices so well, Male and female and bring them to life, as well as step out to narrate when needed.
This has been a very enjoyable read and am looking forward to beginning the third book in the series almost immediately!

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.

I wanted a story where people had powers but told to a level where an adult can enjoy, this novel did this excellently. The reader did a great job of not only telling the story but portraying the characters voices, male and female in a way that provoked images. This is only my second Sanderson novel but am looking forward to many more

This is my first taste of a Brandon Sanderson novel and having no idea of the background to any of the his series I did feel at times I was hearing only half a story for a couple of the stories, which was disappointing but the stories were stand alone were excellent and very enjoyable.
The male reader did take me a little while to get used to, but once I had he was alright, the female reader was excellent and made the stories very enjoyable
