  Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, presents Steelheart, the first book in the Reckoners series, an action-packed thrill ride that will leave readers breathless. This e-book now includes an annotated chapter of Steelheart and a special sneak peek at the exciting sequel, Firefight.
   Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary people extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics.
Epics are no friends of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man, you must crush his will.
   Now, in what was once Chicago, an astonishingly powerful Epic named Steelheart has installed himself as emperor. Steelheart possesses the strength of ten men and can control the elements. It is said that no bullet can harm him, no sword can split his skin, and no fire can burn him. He is invincible. Nobody fights back . . . nobody but the Reckoners.
   A shadowy group of ordinary humans, the Reckoners spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in.
   When Steelheart came to Chicago, he killed David's father. For years, like the Reckoners, David has been studying, and planning, and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.
   He has seen Steelheart bleed.
   And he wants revenge.

"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
 

"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
