Fantastic world-building! I loved thinking about how this world works and the politics of Epics. The main character, David, is a bit flawed and tad annoying, but Sanderson still gets us to root for him. We had some new characters, and again the side characters aren't well-developed, except Mizzy. Prof and Tia are more developed though, and we have a more interesting villain in Regalia, so that was fun. I loved the plotting and planning aspect of Steelheart and there was a lot less of that in Firefight, so my rating went down a half-star. Still had great twists and turns though. Recommend this series.

I really enjoy Brandon's style of writing. It is fast paced, and has good description and dialogue. I am not a fan of books with heavy description which a lot of fantasy novels can suffer from but Brandon doesn't do that.
Definitely recommend this book and the whole series!

This is the sequel to the bestseller Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. This book is about the Reckoners going to Babylon Restored (New York) to stop Megan, Regina, and Obliteration, 3 powerful epics. I read the book and finished yesterday. James Dashner said about this book "The suspense was relentless and the climax explosive" I agree with Dashner. This is a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seats. I am looking forwad for the final book Calamity

Return to the world of the reckoners in this EPIC :) read.

After the fall of Steelheart an Epic named Regalia from modern day New York begins sending Epics after Prof`s team. Annoyed Prof, Tia, and David go to New York where they discover a world they never would have thought existed.

I thought this was an amazing second book in an amazing series with an ending I don`t think anyone saw coming (except maybe Regalia).

This book is really good! I think the first book is a tad better, but that's just my opinion. I can't wait for calamity to come out I am so hyped.

This book was spectacular! I thought 'Steelheart' was awesome but this book blow me away. The characters kept me hooked the whole time and the plot twists kept me on the edge of my set and the ending was NOT what I expected! Brandon Sanderson is a master storyteller indeed!

If I could give more than five stars, I would. Firefight outshines Steelheart in every way, expanding on the "magic" system and world. Characters introduced in the first book are given new dimensions, and David's metaphors are in top form.

This was a great book. I think I liked it even more than the first book to this series. I just wished I didn't have to wait so long till the next book in the series comes out!
