Description

From the best-selling author of the Mistborn series and Words of Radiance comes Calamity, the final book in the New York Times best-selling Reckoners series. What started in the instant number-one New York Times best seller Steelheart and continued in the instant number-one New York Times best seller Firefight now concludes in 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.

GREAT END TO AN AWESOME TRILOGY!!!

Just as breathtaking and fun as the first two Reckoner books. Of the three novels, I actually couldn't pick which one I like most. They're all so much fun in their own unique way. Brandon Sanderson tied up loose ends quite well by the end of this final novel.

A Reasonable End To The Series

This book picks where the last one ended. The humour is the same. The development of the epic powers and the characters work. if you liked the style of the previous books you will like this one. I thought the battle was well done. Although the end is a bit cheesy it does wrap up the series and tie all the loose ends

Bang up finish to the trilogy

#Audible1. This finish to the recliners trilogy was fantastic. Very tense and supplied a satisfying finish to the three books. It has been a great variation on the standard superhero origin story. All 3 books are highly recommended.

Awesome ending!

Not at all what I expected! But what a great way to end the story! Was a little confused about the comment about Mizzy at the very end, but other than that... good stuff!!!

Climactic Battles Second Chances? as Calamity Ends

When last we left the Reckoners their leader Jonathan Phaedrus had given into his powers. Now David Charleston, “The Steelslayer,” is out to prove that Epics can be redeemed. He and his crew of Epic killers travel to the city of Ildithia, formerly known as Atlanta but now located in Kansas (you’ll find out why and how), where a series of raids, chases, rescues, and stunningly destructive spectacles of both magic and high tech gizmos arises; comic book action at its finest.
This is a terrific ending to a fantastic trilogy and the final outcome was surprising. Like most of Brandon Sanderson’s books the writing is never boring and the narrator, MacLeod Andrews, gives another great performance. I would recommend this trilogy to anyone that likes this genre.

Wow, just wow!

The adventure continues in Brandon Sanderson’s amazing and highly imaginative superhero series The Reckoners. Picking up after a short amount of time has passed since the drama that ensued in FireFight. Prof is a full blown evil epic that has an intricate plan, one that was layed out for him in the previous book.

Without giving anything away I will say this. The mystery of the epic named Calamity is revealed. The secret to the power of the epics is fully disclosed, along with why they go mad when they use their powers. I am not sure if I have daddy issues or something, but the final moments of this audiobook had me in tears, literally sobbing. Pulled my heart out, passed it around for all to see and shoved it back in my chest.

While Calamity wraps up the series pretty well I really hope that Sanderson keeps going with his extraordinary series. It touches everything that I love about audio books. From well-developed characters to really evil bad guys, bad guys that are not all evil, gut-wrenching action, a tolerable love story, tear-jerking emotional bits. And all of this is done while keeping a light-heated attitude towards the story-line.

All that being said. Sanderson had a much deeper exploration going on here. Not only scrutinizing the dark side of human nature. But also shedding light on the good of humanity, the good that happens only when there are no outside influences.

If you have listened to the previous audiobooks and the novella in this series, getting and listening to this one is a no brainer. If you haven’t yet. Please do if you want a unbelievable adventure for the imagination, start at the beginning.

Hands down. This has to be one of, if not the best single narrator performances I’ve ever heard. Macleod Andrews put everything he had into his performance. Not only does he have very well developed characterizations for all of the players, he went the extra distance with this one. Laughing, yelling, grunting, actually sneezing, and I would put money on that he was crying at one point, because I know I was. This performance proves to me once again why Andrews is at near the top of the narrator’s that I keep an eye out for new work.

Absolutely Love Sanderson, but

This story felt very contrived, and more than a little moralizing. Definitely not my favorite Sandersonian work. When you compare it to texts like WoK... Forget out of its league: it's barely even playing the same sport.

On the whole, a mediocre work by a great author.

Endings are hard & seldom ever good. This Is Good!

When I heard this was the final book in the series I was disappointed. Many author's authors continue to go on and on and on with a story because they cannot figure out how to end it in a way that is satisfying. If there is never another book in the series I am satisfied with this ending.

Great job Brandon! The Kids & I loved it.

I HATED IT!

.... Because it ended :(
The whole time I was reading this book, I feel like Sanderson was focusing too much on prof and not enough on calamity. I was afraid that there won't be enough time to explain everything. I was wrong the ending tied up every loose end in such a satisfying way that now I'm just craving for more of the Reckoners! Sadly, I know this is the last book and I don't think Sanderson would (or should) write another Reckoners book, because this is a fitting ending for this great trilogy.
