Cover art and blurb for Brandon Sanderson's STEELHEART

Steelheart will be the opening volume in a dark dystopian new series by Brandon Sanderson. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

There are no heroes.

Every single person who manifested powers—we call them Epics—turned out to be evil. Here, in the city once known as Chicago, an extraordinarily powerful Epic declared himself Emperor. Steelheart has the strength of ten men and can control the elements. It is said no bullet can harm him, no sword can split his skin, no explosion can burn him. He is invincible.

It has been ten years. We live our lives as best we can. Nobody fights back . . . nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans who spend their lives studying powerful Epics, finding their weaknesses, then assassinating them.

My name is David Charleston. I’m not one of the Reckoners, but I intend to join them. I have something they need. Something precious, something incredible. Not an object, but an experience. I know his secret.

I’ve seen Steelheart bleed.

I like both the cover and the blurb. Haven't been disappointed by Sanderson yet. Should be interesting.

Sanderson is an absolute beast at writing. It is amazing how he can churn out quality books. This one definitely sounds interesting.

Geez. Sanderson has to be one of the most productive writers alive. When does he sleep.

I'll be picking this up soon, no doubt about it.
