book.fave.rave: STEELHEART (Reckoners #1)
What do you do when your supposed-to-be heroes become villains instead?
You hold out.
Until the real heroes come.
Or... you know, just be a hero yourself. :)
This is the story of David and how he managed to defeat the big bad villain.
David isn't epic. He's not AN EPIC. He's a pretty normal guy. Well, he's normal enough.. until you find out about all his "nerdness". His dad was killed by the big "epic" (this is what they call those people who have powers) in town named Steelheart. After that, his sole mssion in life was to kill him. He studied Epics for ten years and somehow, he was able to collect data that not all people know. He was able to figure out their weaknesses etc. That was his ticket to becoming a reckoner (anti epics). Once he joined the reckoners, it was all about planning, improvising and executing them all correctly. I love how their strategies work out. They may not be powerful, but they sure make it work for the best.
The twist in the end made this book damn perfect. I totally didn't see that (or those, since there's more than one) coming. AWESOME.
This book is full of action, adventure, strategies, powers and determination. I love how the plot went and I love the characters. The author is a genius to have made a whole new world in my head. I hope the next books will be as awesome. ;p
