Brandon Sanderson really is an amazing writer. I have yet to read any of his epic fantasy series, but the two YA books I read by him were amazing! I can’t wait to delve into his more expansive writings. It’s crazy to think he’s already written over 13 books since he was first published in 2005. He truly is a prolific writer.
I really enjoyed “Steelheart.” The prologue was absolutely riveting. Sanderson built his newest series around the old adage, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” When a mysterious phenomenon granted ordinary people extraordinary powers it didn’t take long for society to collapse. These gifted individuals became known as “Epics.” I won’t waste your time trying to summarize the book since you can easily find all the pertinent information in the synopsis.
If you’re a fan of the television series “Heroes,” then you’ll probably love this book. It’s crammed with fast-paced action and plenty of unexpected twists. I really enjoyed learning about the different Epics and their abilities. Overall, I thought “Steelheart” was very well-written. I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
