Excerpt: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson


sanderson-steelheartSteelheart by Brandon Sanderson will be published September 24, 2013!

Brandon has been hard at work on a number of projects, many of which are publishing this year. First it was A Memory of Light, the final Wheel of Time book. From that writing session, he produced River of Souls, a Wheel of Time short story that was edited from the final book but has made its way into the Unfettered anthology. Then there is The Rithmatist, which just published. And maybe publishing later this year, Words of Radiance, the sequel to Way of Kings!

The next book to be published though is Steelheart!

Here is a bit more about it:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn trilogy, Brandon Sanderson, comes the first book in a new, action-packed thrill ride of a series—STEELHEART.

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.

Brandon and Random House have released an early excerpt from Steelheart. It’s the prologue from the book, so it is the perfect place to try the story. Click HERE to read it!
