For: Fun (and I need to know what happens!)
Series: The Reckoners, Book 2
Summary (from goodreads): *Spoilers are inevitable for the first book*
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.Things I Liked:
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.
I adore this series! I went through the book so fast I can't believe it's over. I need to read it again just to have more time in the world. Seeing new places in the world beyond Newcago was fun too. I still like David; also, Megan!!!!! There's action and adventure and suspense and some seriously strong world-building. But I can't handle the cliffhanger endings - give me more!
Things I Didn't Like:
Honestly, I just enjoy them so much I don't have any complaints.
Start with Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Reminded me a bit of Dangerous by Shannon Hale
BOOK CONTENT RATINGS:
