The Teen Press Corps couldn’t be more excited to announce that Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson is our next Buzz Book of The Month!! We have been patiently awaiting it’s release so we could share how much we loved this book (and how we cant wait for book #2) !
W H A T T H E P R E S S C O R P S IS S A Y I N G:
“This book is unlike any that I’ve read. The concept and plot lines are so different than books nowadays. Steelheart has so many amazing plot twists that I hardly knew what was what and who was who (in a good way).”
“The idea of taking those we would usually view as superheroes and making them villains really gave the book a unique spin that set it apart.”

“This enjoyable read focuses more on action than character development and is perfect for genre fans who love exciting adventure stories with surprising plot twists.”
-School Library Journal
“Snappy dialogue, bizarre plot twists, high-intensity action, and a touch of mystery and romance—it’s a formula that sucks readers into the prologue, slings them through one tension-filled encounter after another, and then, at the strange and marginally hopeful conclusion, leaves them panting for the sequel, Firefight, due in 2014.”
–Booklist, starred review
“Although readers may not be surprised at the twists that arise, the near-constant action, Sanderson’s whiz-bang imaginings, and a fully realized sense of danger (the brutal opening scene alone will hook many) make this an absolute page-turner.”
A B O U T S T E E L H E A R T
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 will.
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.
