If you enjoyed book one, Steelheart, I think you'll enjoy this story—but I do have to warn .
The audiobook has a great narrator and it's short. It's only an hour long and that's if you listen to it at regular speed. There isn't a lot I can say without giving anything away. The beginning was funny and the end circles back around. I enjoyed the interaction between David and Mitosis! This has major spoilers in it so you definitely need to read Steelheart first.
Jan 10, Kells Next Read rated it really liked it. Great as with all Sanderson's Work but way too short. Always want more when it come to him. Nov 29, Gavin rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a tiny novella set after the events in Steelheart.
It provided a quick glimpse of what life is like in a post-Epic Newcago. The Reckoners are in charge for now, but the populace are wary and fearful that it is only a matter of time before a new Epic appears to claim the city. In this novella David and the Reckoners fend off the first of the Epics to make a try. The self replicating one man army Mitosis. This was a fun read. It has served its purpose of hyping me up to read Firefight!
Rat This was a tiny novella set after the events in Steelheart. Audio Note: This was narrated well by MacLeod Andrews. I think I enjoyed this even more the second time around. El episodio es entretenido, pero nada del otro mundo. Jan 12, Edward Lorn rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Reckoners' fans. Thought you hated the first book?
I did hate the first book. But, you see, I got a code for the audiobook and I read this because the Epic, Mitosis, is mentioned in the first few chapters of Firefight , which I also happened to get free through Audible. I'd seen this short story floating around on Goodreads, but figured it was a standalone deal. Then What's-his-face the narrator brings up the fight in the new book, so I figured it "Why'd ya read it, E.?
Then What's-his-face the narrator brings up the fight in the new book, so I figured it was important. It's not. I was right the first time.
I can't fucking remember , wherein Smith keeps cloning himself and Neo whups their asses with a tetherball pole. Okay, so What's-his-face Dan, Devon, Dirk The narrator, whoever he is doesn't know Kung Fu, so the action is a little weaksauce. The ending is predictable. They mention Mitosis's possible weakness in the very first chapter and you're like, Okay, yeah, that would make sense: It doesn't exactly go down like that, though, because everyone gets together like the ending of Bill Murray's Scrooged and sings Mitosis to death, but you still knew the emergency system was going to be used to kill this fucker.
And it is. It's used to get everyone in the city together.
But here's the big problem with that: If this is true, why did the entire city help him kill Mitosis? That was a huge what-the-fuck moment for me. At this point in the story, the Reckoners are losing. Mitosis has shot the narrator I'm so sorry, but I can't be bothered to remember this kid's name. This Epic seems just as unstoppable as Steelheart. Logic would dictate that the residents of this city would continue to hide and not risk genocide by helping.
The climax seemed forced and unbelievable. But Sanderson gets away with it because I liked it about as much as I liked Steelheart , which isn't saying a whole hell of a lot. Nothing original here. Mediocre epic with a shit weakness and one of the most annoying protagonists I've read in a long while.
A nice filler between Steelheart and Firefight. This book is about Mitosis, who is again an Epic, and who wants some answers about how Steelheart died. He corners David and tries to intimidate him into giving him some answers. A fast paced short read that acts as a perfect, if somewhat unnecessary filler between the two books. However, I feel that the question raised at the end of this book will form an important basis for the next book, at least that is my hope.
Only reading the second book will A nice filler between Steelheart and Firefight. Only reading the second book will tell me if I am right. If you are at a loss for what to read or if you are someone like me who loves to read novellas in series, give this one a try.
According to me, I don't think you lose much, even if you were to ignore it completely. Now onto Firefight and then onto Calamity to sum up this series. Apr 03, Mimi rated it liked it Shelves: I actually like this short story more than the first book.
Following the defeat of Steelheart and Nightweilder, the city of Newcago--that word still makes me cringe--is now a sunny post-apocalyptic refuge for the powerless. But the people are still weary, as though expecting a new Epic to defeat the Reckoners and plunge the city back into darkness.
And one does step up to the challenge--Mitosis. He's the first to pose a threat, but he's certa I actually like this short story more than the first book. He's the first to pose a threat, but he's certainly not the last. Jul 02, Teodora rated it it was amazing Shelves: What can i even say?
It's Brandon Sanderson, of course i loved it. And even thought it was very short, we still had a beautifull variety of bad methaphors and some pretty good action.
David is even more badass than he thinks he is. Asombrada me ha dejado de nuevo el Profesor. Ya mismo me pongo con "Firefight". Sep 03, Ro rated it it was amazing Shelves: Al principio le iba a dar a este libro 4 estrellas, de hecho, se las puse. Aunque supongo que para quejarme de eso mejor voy a leer Firefight y me callo de una vez. Jan 02, Becky rated it liked it Shelves: A short story in the Reckoners series, this is all about an Epic who is able to clone himself an infinite amount of times.
Kinda like horcruxes, because if one of them remains, the dude won't die. It's an interesting conundrum, but apparently easily solved, because this book clocks in at just over 30 pages. Easily solved David has a little bit of both, but that doesn't really mean much when he's been shot and is now bleeding profusely at the end of a tun A short story in the Reckoners series, this is all about an Epic who is able to clone himself an infinite amount of times.
David has a little bit of both, but that doesn't really mean much when he's been shot and is now bleeding profusely at the end of a tunnel that leads to a deadly drop-off and Mitosis is stalking him. Not the best situation to be in! This story adds just a little bit of info to the nature of Epics and the nature of their weaknesses. Good story, and now I want a Chicago style hot dog. Because I, apparently, am an uncouth heathen.
