Worth the read: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

I don’t usually blog book reviews this many weeks in a row, but I have read so many wonderful books lately I just can’t help myself.

This week’s must read is Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.  For those who have been following my blog from the beginning might recognize I’ve recommended this author before.  This novel however is far from his typical saga fantasy. The action in this sci-fi novel is amazing.  A story about a boy who watched an “Epic”, a person with superhuman powers, kill his father.  Ten years later, he’s out for revenge.

The author softens the potential for what could have been an endless dark and dreary plot with humor and unexpected twists.  I look forward to reading the sequel, Firefight, coming out in Fall 2014.
