I'm not sure what the point of this novella was. Also the style is pretty much a clear depiction of Sanderson's faults as a writer (that his other books are excellent in spite of). Strangely one dimensional characters who feign depth by having specific things that they care about too much, interesting ideas with limited purpose, and a tendency towards resolving imbalanced confrontations with deus ex machina.

The Reckoner's novella which takes place between [b:Steelheart|17182126|Steelheart (The Reckoners, #1)|Brandon Sanderson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1357576738l/17182126._SY75_.jpg|21366540] and [b:Firefight|15704459|Firefight (The Reckoners, #2)|Brandon Sanderson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1413220816l/15704459._SX50_.jpg|21979689], Mitosis is the really fast read about one of the Epic's who comes to attack the city because the Epics don't believe the any mortal man truly could have been the one to kill Steelheart himself. I didn't love this book even vaguely as much as the first novel. There's not enough meat here for me to feel truly involved. It was just a fight skirmish outtake. ( )
