Description

   #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, who was chosen to complete Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series and created the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents Steelheart, the first book in the Reckoners series, an action-packed thrill ride that will leave readers breathless.
   How far would you go for revenge if someone killed your father?
   If someone destroyed your city?
   If everything you ever loved was taken from you?
   David Charleston will go to any lengths to stop Steelheart. But to exact revenge in Steelheart’s world, David will need the Reckoners—a shadowy group of rebels bent on maintaining justice.
   And it turns out that the Reckoners might just need David too.
   Look for book two in the Reckoners series, Firefight, available in 2014.

"A tense, fast-paced adventure. Brandon Sanderson is one of the best fantasy sci-fi writers working today."-Christopher Paolini, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Eragon

“Fantastic! The suspense is relentless and the climax explosive.” —James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series and The Eye of Minds
 

Steelheart is another win for Sanderson, proving that he’s not a brilliant writer of epic fantasy, he’s simply a brilliant writer. Period.” —Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind

[STAR] “Snappy dialogue, bizarre plot twists, high intensity action, and a touch of mystery and romance; it’s a formula that sucks readers into the prologue, slings them through one tension-filled encounter after the other, and then...leaves them panting for the sequel.”—Booklist, Starred
 
“The near-constant action, Sanderson’s whiz-bang imaginings, and a fully realized sense of danger… make this an absolute page-turner.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Perfect for genre fans who love exciting adventure stories with surprising plot twists.”—School Library Journal
 
“A straight-up Marvel Comics–style action drama.”—Kirkus Reviews
