Inhaltsangabe

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson, comes the first book in a new, action-packed thrill ride of a series - Steelheart. 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.

Superhelden einmal anders

Ich finde es immer wieder faszinierend mit welch neuen Szenarien Brandon Sanderson an den Start einer neuen Serie geht.
Warum sollten Menschen mit überlegenen Fähigkeiten zu 'Helden' werden und für die normalen Menschen eine bessere Welt schaffen ?
Würden Meschen mit entsprechender Überlegenheit diese nicht eher zu ihrem Vorteil nutzen ?

Eine interessante Ausgangslage und einmal wieder mit hohem Tempo in eine recht actionlastige Geschichte gepackt.
Bin schon gespannt was Sanderson noch alles dazu einfällt.

Daumen hoch!

Spannend und gut geschrieben bis zum Schluss. Ich mag auch den Hauptcharakter. Freue mich auf die Fortsetzung.

Exciting except for disappointing female character

The story and Sandersons world building are amazing as usual. I was really annoyed by the treatment of the one (!) main female character, however. Especially the way in which the main character treats her in the beginning (and it's viewed as "flirting") and how she's tossed aside at the end. Vin was the only woman in Kelzier's team but at least she got stuff done and didnt only exist as a love interest without contributing to the actual story. Still, this might improve in the next books of the series.
In general, Sanderson seems to have liked his main character a bit too much, he finds a way out of all difficult situations that somehow the much more experienced teammates don't.

Wow!

This story is so extraordinary and unheard-of. I'm so glad that I tried this great book of Brandon Sanderson. I was hooked from the beginning and were waiting for the sequel "Fireflight" which just came out this month.

And the speaker? I am speechless. MacLeod Andrews is so unbelievable talented and colorful. His ability to switch between different voices and accents is just amazing!

Bottom line: If you are open for science fiction and action, try it and you will love it!
