Book Cover: FIREFIGHT by Brandon Sanderson (Reckoners Book 2)

They told David it was impossible--that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart--invincible, immortal, unconquerable--is dead. And he died by David's hand. 

Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. 

Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. 

 Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic--Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.

EW Exclusive Interview About FIREFIGHT

So what do y'all think stacked up against the first book STEELHEART?  I like this tearing through kind of destroyed metal look they have going on, though its a little less effective above since we're looking in at fire so its hard to tell.

Its Brandon Sanderson so you know I'm excited, but how about everyone else?  Did you guys enjoy Steelheart?  Its interesting how they phrase the above, its similar to the summary for the second Mistborn book The Well of Ascension.  Its likely intentional (Steelheart and the quest therein reminded me quite a bit of Vin's quest in the Mistborn books).
