Title: Firefight
   Author: Brandon Sanderson
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: January 6th, 2015

     From 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, Brandon Sanderson presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart.

     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 more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs.

     Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. 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 he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.

My Stance:

     This book is a great way to start the year out. I loved Steelheart. While it's not one of my highest ranking books, there was this big or originality that just caught my attention in the whole bit. The bit with Firefight at the end was just so great in leading to the next book. Brandon Sanderson was never really on my radar and while he's spoken highly in the whole fantasy realm, I had never heard of him. While as a first book to read by him, it just brought me in and hist style was so good.

     David while being a plain boy in a world in which nearly every teenager or young adult is an Epic (has some sort of super power). The band of Reckoners who are as nearly plain as David are bent on trying to bring the Epics who abuse their power to justice, and one of the High Epics are dead because of them. It makes the story great knowing they are putting their lives on the line to try to make the cities better, and the people in them better. I just love the premise and the general idea, it's a great intro into Brandon's style and what he does.
