Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Today's review comes from me! I loved reading this book so much that I want to let everyone know how absolutely awesome it is! It's definitely one that will keep flying off the shelf.


From School Library Journal - "This fun, fast-paced, futuristic science-fiction superhero story is the first in a projected series. When David was six, an unexplained explosion in the sky caused perpetual darkness and ordinary people to gain supernatural powers. These people became known as Epics. Two years later, in a bank in what was once Chicago, now called Newcago, David witnessed Steelheart, one of the most powerful Epics of all, murder his father. In the 10 years since his father's death, David has made it his mission to learn all he can about Epics. Everyone thinks they are invincible, but he knows otherwise. He knows that each one has a weakness, and he's seen Steelheart's. Steelheart can bleed. David intends to get his revenge. A cowed populace accepts the fact that Epics control their lives and the strongest among them are in a constant battle for dominance. Only one shadowy group of ordinary humans called the Reckoners dare fight to eliminate them. David persuades the Reckoners to let him join their ranks after proving he has unique knowledge about Epics. 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. Readers will be rooting for David, a super geek with a love of weapons, who can hold his own against Epics with names like Nightwielder, Conflux, or Firefight."

I'll read anything Brandon Sanderson publishes for a good reason. This book is one of those reasons. He really is a master at creating fully realized worlds and characters. His plots are amazing! And OMG the ending!!!! I know I'm fangirling over here, but this book is seriously non-stop action and awesome plot twists. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

We have another great book review coming your way! This review is for Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Having read it myself I can tell you that it's definitely a great read! Lots of fun with the added bonus of cyborgs!

Cinder by Marissa Meyer reviewed by Diana.


I absolutely loved this book, the way it was written and everything was fantastic. The author mixed my favorite fairy tale with some sci-fi and fantasy and it comes together really well.
