About the book

When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy.

David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when the Reckoners’ leader struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back. . . .

But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying.

My Thoughts

I have to just say again what an amazeballs series this has been. I read all 3 books in the span of 4 or 5 days because I could not put them down. It’s been about a week since I’ve read them and I’m still telling everyone that they have to go read this series. A good friend started it the other day and finished book 1 the same day as well. So trust me, this is a must read.

Firefight really left me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Who was going to survive? What was David going to do? There were some twists and turns I didn’t see coming. While this book was good I did give it 4 stars instead of the 5 I gave books 1 and 2 as I felt the ending was a bit rushed. I was still left with some questions and while it looks like the series is now done I didn’t feel like every thread was wrapped up. Still a pretty satisfying conclusion. Could have been stronger but still a must read series and I can’t wait to read more from Sanderson.
