Newcago is now free, but it is far from peril. The vacuum of power left after Steelheart’s death means other epics are testing the Reckoners and trying to fill the void. Interetingly they are all being sent by another High Epic from Babylon Restored (New York) - so David, Tia, and the Proffessor head out there to figure out why and a way to stop her.
This sequel is a fast and furious read, filled with some astonishingly bad metaphors, but the substance of the story is much more twisty and dark than you might expect, which makes it fantastic. David, a/k/a Steelslayer, is not only helping to find and contain Epics, but he has a theory about what makes them work. And if he’s right, it could change the fate of all Epics!
This is a great follow up to Steelheart! And this is a series that you MUST read in order!
Fran heartily concurs, and encourages you to read both. Now.— Amber
The #1 New York Times bestseller and sequel to Steelheart--a novel that James Dashner called -fantastic.- Brandon Sanderson, the author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight. And don't miss Calamity, the exciting conclusion to the Reckoners series available now
Newcago is free.
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 simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.
Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic Regalia, Babylon Restored is flooded and miserable, but David is sure it's the path that will lead him to what he needs to find. Entering a city oppressed by a High Epic despot is risky, but David's willing to take the gamble. 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 now he will go on a quest darker and even more dangerous than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.
