With the release earlier this week of Firefight, the second book in the Reckoners trilogy, the publishers put the ebook of the first Reckoners.
Suddenly, nearby rooftops blaze and explode, and it's revealed that Regalia has brought in Obliteration, an incredibly strong and cryptic Epic who has a flair for the theatrics and is famous for desolating Houston , San Diego , and Albuquerque , not wanting to rule, but simply to destroy.
With the abilities to absorb and disperse amazing amounts of heat, teleport in the wake of danger, as well as enhanced strength, he runs rampant throughout the city, killing citizens seemingly joyously while the Reckoners try to exploit a weakness.
While fighting him, David notices bandages on his chest, as if he were recently injured. The lopsided scuffle ends with David being thrown into the depths with a ball and chain, before Obliteration graciously thanks him for slaying Steelheart, saying it's simply an obstacle averted in his quest to destroy everything in his path.
David is drowning, when he feels someone miraculously save him and put him ashore. When the other Reckoners return to him, Jon is missing, and it's understood that Prof had to use his powers to stave off Obliteration, but it's also understood that the Epic was not defeated.
While escaping to a submarine with the others, David catches a glimpse of Megan in wet clothes in a crowd, and soon realizes that she saved him.
The Reckoners' submarine takes them to an underwater mansion, where they are hidden from Regalia's view. David, who is obviously uneasy about water, sees Prof return, and implores that perhaps Regalia is trying to resist the Epic powers, to which Tia agrees. However, Prof believes something bigger is happening, convinced the assassins were a call for help to kill her instead of having her powers take over and destroy the city, and takes David aside to warn him that Regalia is the primary target, and to not let his feelings for Megan get in the way of the mission.
Exel and Mizzy help David learn to use the spyril, a piece of Knighthawk machinery that allows the user to use it as a jetpack of water. After plenty of training on this, David and Mizzy are sent to a Babilar party to spy on Newton, a gang leader in the city and an Epic working for Regalia.
However, Mizzy and David end up connecting, and it's revealed that Mizzy wants to kill 'Firefight' Megan for killing Sam, an old member of her team. David tries to spy on Newton, but suddenly realizes that Megan is following him and draws her out when they are alone.
Megan, who is trying to resist her Epic temptations, tells him that she finds it easier to control herself around him, and the two have a laugh in the wake of a bad metaphor by David. Megan gives David a motivator, which is a small object that helps Knighthawk technology work, before leaving him, threatening him with a gun when he tries to kiss her.
However, David notices that she has the safety on, and believes that it is love. David continues to practice with the spyril, and improves his skills greatly, until suddenly Regalia's water projection appears.
The two discuss the morals of Reckoners and Epics, and while David tries to figure out her location by triangulation, she states that he has only hurt society by killing Steelheart, and that he will be the end of his own people. She disappears, and David contemplates how the Epics' weaknesses may possibly be connected to events from their past, like Mitosis' weakness was his own rock music from the past.
David and Exel delve into the lore of 'Dawnslight', a believed good Epic who watches over the city and grants it with glowing lights on the spraypaint on the side of the walls of buildings, as well as filling the interiors of the city's skyscrapers with luscious, jungle-like greenery and fruit to feed the people.
However, the conversation is cut short when it's discovered that Obliteration is sitting on top of a rooftop in Babilar, collecting up heat from the sun, most likely in an effort to vaporize the city. David keeps in touch with Megan via text, and Prof who is thinking of a plan to stop Obliteration from destroying the city becomes suspicious that he's putting her in front of the mission to end Regalia's reign over Babilar, and even threatens to send him back to Newcago. Prof leaves David still unsure if his presence helps or hinders the Reckoner team.

Overall rating 4. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. The characters and story really drew me in. Action packed and exciting from the start with interesting twists throughout. Would have been 5 stars but it was such a quick read it felt like I was just watching a movie. I'm excited for more books in this world.
Weak closing, characterization often shallow, but an interesting plot and concept albeit limited in development … Show more Show less.
This book was very good, it was fast and easy to read and I felt like the author had really put a lot of thought into the whole thing. Love the writing too. Great worldbuilding and the characters had distinctive voices and overall I definitely like it. I did find it a bit hard to get into at first, but after few chapters it held my interest.There is a free 5-chapter preview ebook of Steelheart that you should check out, with a corresponding sampler audiobook on Audible.
The Gathering Storm. Not an object, but an experience. Why do you think this world worked well for these particular characters?
