Waiting on Wednesday (39): Steelheart

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Why do I want to read Steelheart super badly?
1) Brandon Sanderson is a really nice guy, who loves librarians.
2) He writes hilarious books about evil librarians.
3) He also writes epic fasntasy novels that are awesome, if released WAY TOO FAR apart.
4) This book is dytopian.
See? I just need this. Right now.

Steelheart, Book 1

Author: Brandon Sanderson
Expected Publication Date: September 26, 2013
Publisher: Delacorte

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics.

But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills.

Nobody fights the Epics... nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them.

And David wants in. He wants Steelheart—the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father. For years, like the Reckoners, David's been studying, and planning—and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.

He's seen Steelheart bleed. And he wants revenge.
