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.
'...Steelheart hits the ground running. The author spins a terrifically tall tale, packaging the superheroic action into compelling, punchy chapters that keep you reading. That's the appeal. It's a fast, feisty read, with characters that are skillfully drawn, assassinations, gunfights, physics-bending motorcycle chases and a world you can't wait to hear more about.' -- Dean Evans SFX MAGAZINE
