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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Steelheart is the literature equivalent of a blockbuster; episodic and fast-paced with surprises around every turn. * SCI FI NOW *
A terrifically tall tale, packaging the superhero action into compelling, punchy chapters that keep you reading. 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. * SFX *
Full of action * THE SUN *

“Fully Immersive Tale”

I've been a huge fan of Sanderson since reading The Wheel of Time series that he finished off. His writing is fast paced, but never loses you. The worlds he creates are so vivid in my mind when I read anything by... More

““I’ve seen Steelheart bleed. And I will see him bleed again.””

Epics are humans with super-powers. These powers corrupt their souls, turning them into tyrannical murderers that think themselves divine. Steelheart is one of these and has the ability to turn anything he touches... More

“An intense and frenetic revenge tale. With superpowers.”

I'm always surprised that there aren't more superhero stories published outside of the comics industry. Steelheart proves that a great novel writer can do well with the genre, and do so with more depth and... More
