Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very interesting spin on the classic superhero tale. Sanderson creates a world where Epic's, mortals who developed special powers, have taken control of the world. Like mafia crime bosses, Epic's battle each other with their godlike powers in order to gain control of large urban areas. Stealheart controls Newcago and David and the Reckoners are searching for a way to bring down the corrupted deities of the twenty first century. Anyone who enjoys the superhero genre will enjoy this new spin on the idea that sometimes there are no superhero's out there coming to save us. We must save ourselves.
