Never has an author caused so much dispute in the library. Students fighting over books as they come in, vicious rock, paper, scissors competitions. After school meetings to discuss Sanderson's worlds with expert sons coming in to facilitate, students begging on knees to take it before it has been processed. Students from the Chiefs- Waikato country pledging eternal allegiance to the Crusaders from Canterbury. Love that!
This book had them going and anything with the name Sanderson in it, a now automatic purchase!
Steelheart is his latest, only complaint from those who have vied to get this book is that it was too short- just like me!
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.
