I enjoyed it better than the 1st time. ( )

Great book by Brandon Sanderson! This book is a twist on the superhero theme. Basically, everyone who shows up with superhero powers is basically evil. I like that the book takes that twist because it parallels what I believe about the doctrine of human depravity, that apart from the grace of God we are all sinners and that much power would corrupt us and make us into monsters.

There were a couple of pleasant plot twists that I should have seen coming, but didn't. The pace was nice and fast, but there were breathers in the right places.

Sanderson is a very good writer (in my opinion) and his handling of magic is second to none. ( )

The writing style wasn't very impressive but the story was interesting. I was a little annoyed by the stereotypical awkward-boy-doesn't-know-how-to-talk-to-girls trope but the plot was well thought out. ( )

SteelHeart: Review I really liked this book. Normally in superhero books the super heroes are good this book looks at what happens if the superhero is bad. I loved not only the writing in this book but also how the lead character of this book David. I think this book could have easily been a book about vengeance but it become something so much more then that with not only David but all the other characters in the novel.
 
I loved the concept of the rat tag group of rebels and how their group was really effected and changed by David. I liked how even though David spend so long planning even he did not have all the answers and that really sold me on the story because every needs help to push their plans along and in the end their plan did work. 
 
I loved also learning more about the developed of the epics hope to learn more in the future about them. I really did like David and Megan even thought i want it to become less insta love and more love. 
 
I loved the professor revel and i am curious why david is so good with the epic technology!
Hope to read the novella soon!
