Book Review: Steelheart (Reckoners #1) by Brandon Sanderson

Steelheart was awesome! Super fun and action packed with humor attached! Epic!

I loved David’s awkwardness and stupid metaphors. The twist I did not see coming. It’s hard to fool me!

David grew up in Newcago, a city in the future where the Epic, Steelheart rules. The book starts out with David trying to prove to the Reckoners that he will be an asset to them. He meets Prof, Megan, Tia, Cody and Abraham of the Newcago Reckoners. Once he is partly accepted he starts to shake up their way of thinking and starts in on a plan that could change Newcago forever.

I would not be doing this review justice if I didn’t give a little preview of the hilarity that is David and also his bad metaphors.

“Nice work.”
“Yeah, well, you know, I’ve been practicing a lot. Hitting the old wall-vaporizing gym.”
“The what?” She frowned as she pulled over the ladder we’d brought with us.
“Never mind,” I said.

“It’s okay,” I said.
“I feel like a brick made of porridge.” She looked at me, brow scrunching up. The van’s cab fell silent. Then Megan started to laugh.
“No, no,” I said. “It makes sense!” Listen.

But since then you’ve acted like I was a gorilla at your buffet.” “A … what?”

I felt the story was fast paced and had characters that I could connect with. David wasn’t just another solider hellbent on revenge. He is a big softy, he’s awkward and so funny! He really carries the story when it starts to move a little slower. I think you will find this a fun read with great world building you can immerse yourself in.

I fought because of his dreams.
