Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.
David’s hunger for revenge has totally consumed him. He now spends every single spare moment of his time, plotting how to take down the ‘man’ who killed his father. When I say ‘man’, I really mean… A super powerful, invincible, crazed ruler of the city known as Newcago. Oh and did I forget to mention, he has powers too. Doesn’t sound like David has a chance you might say. But you’d be wrong. David has seen Steelheart bleed and he desperately wants to see it again. So he can avenge his father and bring some justice to this corrupt world. But he can’t do it on his own, he’ll need help… Who, in their right mind, would try this crazy scheme. Well unsurprisingly David knows just the right people.
This all started when Clamity abruptly appeared in the sky and our comforting warm Sun mysterious goes into hiding. Clamity being a giant red light in the sky, is now earth’s only source of light besides electricity powered bulbs. You’d think that’d be enough to send the earth into chaos. But when the Epics come along, with their superpowers, the earth really goes into chaos.
Teen Rating: Another great book by Sanderson. 4/5 . 13+.
