Praise for the Reckoners series

“The suspense is relentless and the climax explosive.”—James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series
 
“Another win for Sanderson . . . he’s simply a brilliant writer. Period."—Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind
 
[STAR] “Snappy dialogue, bizarre plot twists, high-intensity action, and a touch of mystery and romance…leaves [readers] panting for the sequel.”-Booklist, starred
 
“An absolute page-turner."—Publishers Weekly
 
“Compelling. . . . Sanderson uses plot twists that he teases enough for readers to pick up on to distract from the more dramatic reveals he has in store.”—The A.V. Club

Présentation de l'éditeur

A #1 New York Times Bestseller

Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart.
   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.

Cette suite des Reckoners est meilleure que Steelheart, dans le sens où l'on apprend des éléments capitaux de l'histoire, sur Calamity, sur les Epics, sur la façon dont ils fonctionnent et la manière d'en faire, réellement, des héros positifs.
David et Prof se dirigent vers Babilar, anciennemment Manhattan après que Regalia, une Epique que Prof connaît manifestement, ait envoyé plusieurs sbires de moindre importance à Newcago pour essayer de démanteler les Reckoners.
David accompagne Prof dans l'espoir de retrouver Megan avant que les Recknoers locaux n'essayent de la tuer...
Si vous avez aimé Steelheart, lisez d'abord Mitosis, puis embrayez sur Firefight !

Sanderson's Most Skilled Work To Date 6 janvier 2015
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
THIS. BOOK. IS. BRILLIANT.

I first discovered Brandon Sanderson when I was poking around and found Steelheart, shortly after it was released.

I immediately fell in love (with his writing style...not him) and went back to read most of his other books.

Elantris, Mistborn, Warbreaker, Stormlight Archive, The Rithmatist, Legion...they're all amazing.

As I've been reading through Sanderson's work, I've noticed that if you number his books in chronological order, each one is significantly better than the last.

Most authors maintain a similar level of quality throughout all (or at least most) of their work, but Sanderson is always improving.

With each book he writes, he gets better and better.

Luckily, this streak has carried on and applies to Firefight.

As of the time I'm writing this, Firefight is Sanderson's latest, and therefore most skilled, piece of work.

I read Steelheart when it came out over a year ago, and I went back to reread it shortly before Firefight was released. I actually finished reading Steelheart just a couple of hours before midnight, when Firefight was officially available for purchase. (I had preordered it on my Kindle, so I got it exactly at midnight.)

I started reading Firefight immediately, and I was very surprised at how much Sanderson has improved in just one year.

Reading Steelheart and Firefight back-to-back like that, it's very easy to see exactly how much Sanderson's writing has improved.

It's hard to explain exactly WHAT Sanderson did to make Firefight so much better, but there IS a distinct improvement.

The characters seem more fleshed out and realistic, the pacing is flawless, the plot flows smoothly, the foreshadowing is expertly woven in, the action plays out in your head like a movie...

This is a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

I thought Steelheart was absolutely amazing when I first read it, and I seriously doubted that Sanderson could top it. But let me tell you: this book does NOT suffer from "middle-book-syndrome".

Lots of authors throw all of their best ideas into the first book, and leave no interesting material for the 2nd and 3rd books.

Not so with the Reckoners trilogy.

The difference between Steelheart and Firefight is like peeing on a tree and sitting on one of those Japanese toilets that sings to you and sprays your butt and could probably make you pancakes. (Read the book to understand the use of this weird metaphor.)

To summarize: this is by far Sanderson's most masterful work yet, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

If you liked Steelheart, you'll LOVE Firefight.

If you LOVED Steelheart...you might just die from excitement while reading Firefight. ;-)

You won't be disappointed.

THIS. BOOK. IS. EPIC. (Pun intended.)

Sparks! This book is amazing! 10 janvier 2015
Par Carole's Random Life - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
5 Stars!

Sparks! This book is amazing! I could go on and on about how much I loved this book (and probably will in this review). I am fairly new to Brandon Sanderson, having just read the first book in this series, Steelheart, not quite a month ago. My friends on Goodreads have talked about having an ailment called Sandersonitis and I am afraid that I may have caught the bug because I cannot get enough of this stuff.

I love the idea of this series. I grew up on superheroes. For a short time, I think I wanted to be Wonder Woman when I grew up (I kind of still do to be honest). The television shows that I watched revolved around superheroes: Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Bionic Woman, not to mention cartoons every Saturday morning. I had a Wonder Woman barbie and often paraded around the house in my Wonder Woman Underoos. When my cousins were around, we often stopped all kinds of trouble in our superhero underwear gang. As you may imagine, I was instantly drawn to this series. Epics with superhero powers but with a twist because these are not the save the day kind of superhero at all. These guys can ruin your best day and do so without a lot of thought and nobody brave enough to stop them except the Reckoners.

David is a member of the Reckoners. A group that works to destroy dangerous Epics. This book starts with a bang. I don't think that this prolog was quite as good as the one in Steelheart but it was excellent. Each Epic has a highly guarded weakness which is the key to their assassination. David has spent his life learning about these Epics and is very good at finding their weaknesses. After the exciting start to the book, David leaves Newcago with Prof and Tia to help a group of Reckoners in Babylon Restored (the former New York City). I do have to admit that I was a little sad to see the story leave Cody and Abraham behind but I soon learned that the new characters were just as much fun.

The new group consists of Exel, Val, and Mizzy. Mizzy was the most likeable out of that group for me. Mizzy was the center of one of the best funniest moments in this book. If I were in charge of the Reckoners, Mizzy would take notes at every meeting. David continues to amuse me with his horrible metaphors. David can be absolutely adorable at time. The Epics that the group are facing in Babylon Restored are frightening and everyone seems to want to take down David, or the Steelslayer as many are calling him. I am amazed at how unique and interesting every Epic introduced in this series has been. In this book, we meet Newton, Regina, Obliteration, and Dawnslight plus a few more. The city itself was completely different than Newcago. Newcago is a city made of steel where the citizens lived in fear while Babylon Restored is a city of water, glowing lights, and plentiful fruit where the citizens have adopted a carefree attitude.

I thought the writing in this book was superb. The book had tons of action and suspense and I found it really hard to put down. The prolog immediately pulls me into the story and the ending was non-stop excitement. Brandon Sanderson found just the right balance of humor and action in this story. I would highly recommend this book to others. I would highly suggest that this series be read in order. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!

It's like a German Chocolate Cake Covered in Hot Sauce 10 janvier 2015
Par Josh R - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
No wait, just hear me out. You see, you think you want to just have the nice tasty cake, but fail to notice the hot sauce. Then, because the hot sauce has a lingering effect, you end up thinking about the cake longer than you thought you would!

I have a large family and lots of outside commitments on top of that, but whenever a new Brandon Sanderson book comes out I put things on hold and pull up a chair to find out what kind of wickedly cool ideas he has come up with this time. Pick up this book and read it (you know, after you've read the first one and Mitosis). You'll still be feeling the burn for while after you finish it.

Super action-packed, super intense, but most of all, just super fun! 6 janvier 2015
Par Nikki @ There Were Books Involved - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This review originally appeared on my blog, There Were Books Involved.

------------------------------------------------

If you're smart, and you've already read Steelheart, CONGRATULATIONS: Here's an easy test for you to see if you should read this sequel: Did you like Steelheart at all? No, seriously, like, AT ALL. A little, OMG SO MUCH, whatever? ...Yes, you did? Well, then, there's no question: You need Firefight in your life. Immediately. Really, that's all you need to know. (And if you haven't read Steelheart, why are you here?! Go read that book!) But read on if you want more information about Firefight. This review is spoiler-free! ;)

The Reckoners series reminds me of what I imagine a superhero comic book would be like (confession: I have never read a comic book... or a graphic novel... please don't kill me...). But seriously. It's super fun, vibrant and cinematic, absolutely action-packed, a bit lighthearted, but also full of heart... It makes me think of movies like "The Avengers," except the superheroes are all bad guys and the little humans get to be the heroes. I mean, sometimes in movies like that, the heroes are a little over-the-top idealistic, but we forgive them, don't we? Because we want to root for them, we want them to vanquish their foes, we want them to save the world amidst these epic circumstances... Yeah, Firefight is like THAT.

Carrying straight over from the end of Steelheart (or rather, the end of Mitosis... seriously, you should read Mitosis, it's a great gap-bridger), Firefight deals with the aftermath of Steelheart's epic conclusion. Instead of making David's and the other Reckoners' lives simpler, their actions at the end of Steelheart just made things even more complicated, and they end up having to go to Manhattan (now "Babylon Restored") for answers. I was super excited to see a new location after being confined to Newcago in book 1, and Babylon Restored does not disappoint. But wow, getting to see outside of Newcago... well, the outlook is bleak. This series isn't post-apocalyptic, it's post-Epic -- and it's pretty terrifying out there. These cities ruled by Epics are really the only bastions of civilization left, which is... yikes. I really don't want to say too much about Babylon Restored because I don't want to give away any surprises, but I will say that, while terrifying, it's also seriously beautiful and I would really like to go there. For like, a couple hours. With a safe getaway planned.

In addition to a new setting, we also get to meet some awesome new secondary characters. A few of the "regulars" from Steelheart don't really play much of a role in Firefight, which was a bit disappointing for me, but that's ok! These new characters are pretty great, as well. I sort of wish I'd felt like I got to know them a little bit better than I did, but by the end I was definitely a fan of all of them -- especially a girl who kind of reminds me of Leo Valdez from Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series... (Yeah, I went there.) I really can't wait to see my old favorites and some of these new characters team up in Calamity. (I mean, that is what's gonna happen right? RIGHT?!?!)

One character who didn't disappoint at all, however, was David. I mean, he's David. (I love David.) David's growth from his drive to revenge in Steelheart, to finding a new purpose in Firefight, was just so well done over the course of these two books. He's a character who is willing to admit when his outlook is wrong, to reevaluate his goals, and to always fight for what he believes in. Also, his faith in people is just... okay, yes, it's rather idealistic and often comes across as unfounded or flat-out stupid -- he throws his whole heart behind people, all of his will and faith and belief that they can pull through, that everything will turn out okay -- but I love that about him. Plus, of course, his metaphors. They make me giggle, what can I say?

As for the plot... well... spoilers, ugh!! But I will say that this book does not drag. It's just as action-packed as Steelheart -- if not more. Questions that were left unanswered in Steelheart are dealt with a lot in this book, as well, like, Can Epics really fight against their natures? *GASP* Yes, that question is fully explored in Firefight, and it is intense. I just... yeah. I have a lot of feels about this.

And then the ending... I mean, if you've read Steelheart, or any book by Brandon Sanderson, you know his endings are insane. Firefight is no exception. There are so many revelations and mind-blowing occurrences, and it will leave you dying for book 3. Sorry, there's just no way around it. But it is so worth it.

In conclusion...

If you've read Steelheart and liked anything about it, you definitely need Firefight in your life. If you haven't read Steelheart... fix that immediately, because these two books are worth reading just for the explosive ending of Firefight alone (not to mention the explosive ending of Steelheart, duh). This series is super action-packed, super intense, but most of all, it's just super fun.

IT'S JUST SUPER, OKAY. Read it.
