Description

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.

He found some of those answers in FIREFIGHT. Now, he has to decide what to do with them . . .

Calamity is about what you do to fill your heart once you have vengeance.

Review quote

Full of action * THE SUN * A terrifically tall tale, packaging the superhero action into compelling, punchy chapters that keep you reading. It's a fast, feisty read with characters that are skillfully drawn, assassinations, gunfights, physics bending motorcycle chases and a world you can't wait to hear more about. * SFX * Steelheart is the literature equivalent of a blockbuster; episodic and fast-paced with surprises around every turn. * SCI FI NOW * Firefight is filled with a spine-tingling adventure and heart-racing action that promises to satisfy fans both new and old * Fantasy Book Critic * Firefight is a rollercoaster ride of action, entertainment, and humour * Smash Dragons * Firefight is a visual, almost cinematic novel * Buzzy Mag * The stories are complex, fascinating, and filled to the brim with three-dimensional characters * Fantasy Book Review * The world of The Reckoners is suddenly presented in all its glory. It's an incredibly vibrant setting that showcases the entire breadth of Sanderson's talent. Expect to finish this one in single sitting. * Upcoming 4 Me * as always, Brandon Sanderson creates a unique and interesting universe we get to explore alongside the protagonist...a fun, action packed ride for those of us who remain a child at heart. * Best Fantasy Books * Full of action * THE SUN * Steelheart is the literature equivalent of a blockbuster; episodic and fast-paced with surprises around every turn. * SCI FI NOW * This is a story that will jump out the pages, leave your heart racing and completely pull you into that world. This is one adventure that you cannot miss. * Escapades of a Bookworm * Sanderson is known for his frequent short stories and experiments with novels, so we have hope that this will not be the end of theReckoners series. For now though, this created an excellent and tense conclusion to a remarkable fantasy series. * Starburst Magazine * I'll be honest here Calamity blew me away, it was fast and frantic, witty and beautiful with some real nail-biting moments, this is book three anything could happen. I devoured this book and would happily read the trilogy again. * Fantasy Book Collector Reviews * another brisk YA fantasy from Sanderson - inventive, action-stuffed and surprising until the end * SFX *
