Description

A new team of Reckoners must infiltrate the flying city of Lux to take down the Epic Lifeforce in this audio-exclusive novel from Brandon Sanderson, the best-selling author of the "Stormlight Archive" and "Mistborn" series, and co-author Steven Michael Bohls.

When the great red star Calamity appeared in the sky, some believed the end had come. They were right.

Calamity created the Epics: humans with incredible powers they didn't deserve.

They could have saved mankind. They could have lifted us into harmony and prosperity. Instead they burned. They slaughtered. They conquered. And then they ruled.

Jax has learned all of this the hard way. Orphaned at an early age, he's spent most of his childhood training to be a Reckoner - determined to find the Epics' weaknesses, unlock their secrets, and protect those of us who are still left.

But now, the mysterious High Epic Lifeforce has arrived with his flying city, Lux, to plunder what's left of Texas. So Jax and his ragtag team - the few who remain of the once-mighty Texas Reckoners - must take their battle to this floating fortress of riches - and defeat the invincible.

To avenge what has been lost. And rise anew.

Great addition to the Reckoners universe

I loved the original trilogy, so I bought this as soon as I saw it and marathoned it right away. It's an excellent story! The new cast of characters was a lot of fun, and it had a lot of heart. There's a lot of pseudoscience that's a little ridiculous, but that's a mainstay of soft science fiction-- in a world where people are given powers, incorrect cellular biology is not where I stop suspending my disbelief. If you're into biology or programming at all, though, expect to roll your eyes a couple times, then let it pass because the rest of it is so exciting! I hadn't listened to the other audiobooks, but the narrator injects a lot of emotion into the tense moments and can do a very diverse cast of voices that actually add to the experience. It's a bit cheesy, and a bit dark, but generally, I'd highly recommend this!

Very good book, excellent narrator

The narrator/performer is absolutely fabulous. He does different voices for all characters, of course, but even different narrator voices when the book shifts perspectives. He is truly great.

The book is very good, but admittedly, not excellent, due to some odd plot points that I don't think make perfect sense.

Loved it!

Good story, enjoyed it very much. Not sure how much was Sanderson and how much was Bohls, but the story was every bit as good as the first trilogy. Definitely recommend it for those who enjoyed the other reckoners books.

Not as good as the usual Sanderson imo

The first half of this book felt like a rehash of Steelheart, and the second half was like a strange series of loosely connected, overly edgy, vignettes (which took priority over the story :/). I usually enjoy a good bit of blood n guts, but in this book it just felt melodramatic.
The best part was the setting, and even that was significantly less interesting than the city of salt from the third Reckoners book, or the shadowy city of steel from Steelheart.
Great narration though 👍

A fun read enjoyed getting back to the reckoners

The first 1/2 of this book is superb and really deserves a 5 start. unfortunately the Second half was a bit bizarre and fell flat for me. I would still recommend that fan of the series give this book a chance. The characters are interesting. I was hoping for a cameo from the Main team but they did not show up.

An ok book, but just that

I liked the other Reckoners novels, but this one just made me bored. The story started out interesting and i liked the development of the characters even if it feels a bit of a rehash of the archetypes, but as it progresses it becomes a bit of a slog, a tad boring.
Not gonna give out spoilers, but be warned that everything ends in a huge cliffhanger.

As usual a spectacular novel narrated wonderfuly

Loved this book, Sanderson is my favorite author and rarely disappoints, I read steelheart, firefight and calamity as a kid (I skipped mitosis sry Mr Sanderson) and this new addition brings just as much joy to my adult self as it did to the kid I once was, thank you Brandon Sanderson and all contributing influences for fostering my love of reading my entire life.

The Best of Sanderson, Bohls is Brilliant!

Bohls and Sanderson are magic together. Bohls shows his understanding of this epic series and grows it beyond imagination.

great Reckoners audiobook

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I love anything Brandon Sanderson writes, but I wasn't sure if I would like the co-writing. this is still an excellent book even by Brandon's standard

Masterful Story Tellers

I’ve been hooked since discovering Steelheart 8 years ago. The entire series is interwoven. I absolutely love the Easter eggs between the stories. Sanderson is a master of story telling and his collaborations from Jordan to Bohls have always been phenomenal, award worthy literature.

Don't worry about it being co-authored!

I was reluctant when I saw that this isn't purely from Sanderson's mind, I worried that co-author Bohls would be a weak link in the writing and lower the quality of the storytelling, or that this wouldn't *feel* quite like Reckoners 1-3. I was relieved to find that both fears were unfounded. You can barely tell the difference between writer voice in Lux vs. Steelheart.

If you were entertained by the first trilogy and enjoy exploring the world of Reckoners killing Epics, you will be pleased to have spent a credit on this.

I'm also a sucker for MacLeod Andrews' voice though, so maybe I was just hypnotized by his beautiful narration.

Welcome back to the Reckoning!

Obviously if Brandon Sanderson touched it then strap in for a ride! He also had a co-author and from what I can see Steven Michael Bohls was outstanding. As usual, Macleod Andrews was impeccable with the narration. So dive in with zero hesitation fellow needs!

Fantastic writing. Amazing characters. Incredible narration. Epic book!
