     They told David it was impossible—that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart—invincible, immortal, unconquerable—is dead. And he died by David’s hand.
     Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there’s no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs.
Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. 
     Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David’s willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David’s heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he’s willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.


So, I had a feeling that this book was going to be awesome, I mean... how could it not be? Now I need to read other Sanderson books to tie me over until the next Reckoners book comes out. 

Oh man, I loved this book even more than the first one. Holy... wow. I was not expecting that to happen at all, but at the same time I was wondering if something like this was going to happen. 

David's character has really grown since the start of the first book to the start of this book. Still a total nerd, and refuses to admit it.

There is so many things to say about this book, but I don't want to give anything away. I really liked that this book took place in a different city, and it showed what other cities are going through with their dictator Epic "leader".

There were so many twists and revelations about certain characters, it makes me even more excited to read the third book. I can't wait. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long.

  1. I totally feel you pain, I want Calamity now. I am beyond eager to know what happens. As for what to write for a review without spoilers I feel you on that too. A hefty book but it read so quickly I was like what it is already over. I am wondering if Mr. Sanderson will release a novella before Calamity. The one between Steelheart and Firefight was fun.
