Order the sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Firefight today!From the bestselling author of the Mistborn series and Words of Radiance comes Calamity, the final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Reckoners series: Steelheart, Firefight, and Calamity.    When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy.    David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when Prof struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Once the Reckoners’ leader, Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back. . . .    But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying.   Praise for the Reckoners Series:#1 New York Times Bestselling Series “The suspense is relentless and the climax explosive.” —James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series “Another win for Sanderson . . . he’s simply a brilliant writer. Period.” —Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind   “Action-packed.” —EW.com   “Compelling. . . .

        January 1, 2016
        Climactic battles with the most powerful of the supervillainous Epics plaguing our planet leads to a win at last for truth, justice, and, well, second chances. Once-worthy Epic Jonathan Phaedrus has been corrupted by his powers but might still be redeemable if he can be made to face his deepest fears. In pursuit of his former boss, Reckoner David "Steelslayer" Charleston and his diverse crew of Epic-killers fetch up in Ildithia--formerly known as Atlanta but now, thanks to the powers of its resident Epics, located in Kansas and transformed into salt. A whirl of raids, chases, rescues, and spectacularly destructive displays of both magic and high-tech gadgetry ensues, bringing David face to face with Calamity: the original Epic and the source of the other Epics' powers. As said individual powers range from transformational skills and energy blasts to the ability to force victims to talk in rhyme, the threat doesn't always seem entirely serious despite a rapidly escalating body count. Moreover, narrator David seems as addicted to eye-rolling similes ("The sun peeked over the horizon like the head of a giant radioactive manatee") as he is to "exceptionally dangerous" mission plans. Perhaps it's not surprising that the key to victory in this action-packed romp turns out not to be violence but pop psychology. Adeptly done thrills, whether readers take their costumed supers seriously or with a dish (or, in this case, an entire city) of salt. (Fantasy. 11-13)

        Grades 8-11 In the third and final book of the Reckoners series, Prof has fully embraced his powers, destroying all around him in order to achieve Regalia's final plan: stealing Calamity's powers so that he might become the ultimate Epic. David and his small band of Reckoners are determined to stop him, but only David is sure he can force Prof to face his fears and recover his goodness. The only problem? David has yet to figure out Prof's fear. To do so, he and the team must rely on Megan's growing powers and the others' daring and intelligence, risking their own lives and those of the innocent people around them. It's a conclusion that won't satisfy everyone. While there's plenty of violence, as well as other dimensions, new Epics, and high-tech tools, there are also David's awful metaphors and similes, and the twists and turns, especially the final resolution, don't always add up. There are elements of the end, however, that are satisfying, even sweet, and that ought to make some readers feel that it's worthy, even of an Epic.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Sanderson's number-one best-seller status should ensure that this series finale should have the requisite finale-type demand.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
