Summary: When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy.
David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when Prof struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Once the Reckoners’ leader, Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back…
But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying.
My Review: Last week I had a rare week at work where I was slow and able to listen to audio books while I worked on “busy” mind numbing work. One of the first books I was able to finish was the conclusion to this series that I adore.
Oh David, you brave brave kid.
This book was a nonstop conclusion to a series that I am very sad is over. I will say that Steelheart is still my favorite villain in this series. I also really want them to make this into a movie.
This was an Epic Conclusion (see what I did there?) to another fantastic Brander Sanderson series.
