4.0 out of 5 stars Great Entertainment
This book was my introduction to Brandon Sanderson, and I would strongly recommend it. The book is well-paced, well-planned with sufficient twists to the narrative to keep you uncertain as to precisely what's been happening until the final few pages. The writing style is crisp and evocative: I found it easy to imagine the steel-city of Newcago, stratified into tiers and...

This is the first Brandon Sanderson book I have read and not a book I would normally choose as I don't read much in this genre. I did enjoy Steelheart, it sets scene perfectly for the next Reckoners adventure. The characters are all interesting and well thought out and the plot moves along very quickly with plenty of action. I would recommened this book to anyone who just...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brandon Sanderson does it again, 18 Dec. 2013

I was very happy with this read. Such an original idea for a book. It wasn't an overly dark book and it had plenty of twists and turns in it. In general I would recommend this to any young reader as it makes you laugh once in a while and sparks the imagination. Good buy.

Another decent book from Mr Sanderson. Nothing in my view like mistborn, which I enjoyed far more. Not much depth to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent read!, 6 Dec. 2013

The best thing I liked about this was the concept. What would it be like to have real superheroes? A fascinating idea, well written. but not perfectly written, I have to say - the characterisation, the pacing - could have been better. I didn't really like the way the protagonist always knows the answers and is always right all the time. I think, with a bit more experience, Sanderson could have written a great book instead of just a good one. Still, I enjoyed reading it and rereading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steely, 29 Nov. 2013
I liked the premise of this book and am a big fan of Brandon Sanderson, however, this is clearly aimed at a younger audience. All credit to the author for the ability to change style and system but not a page turner for me. Readable ,but choose something else by Brandon Sanderson if this is your first foray into his worlds.

Whilst not the sword and sorcery that might be expected this is still a great read. Hard to put down and a must for all fans of the authors work.

Simple but addictive read, although it feels like a kids book it kept me interested. For thoughts who have read it, it was "epic" huh huh huh.....
