Calamity by Brandon Sanderson

Calamity by Brandon Sanderson is the last novel in the Reckoners series and one of my most highly anticipated audiobooks this year. I have had such a blast listening to MacLeod Andrews narrates this action-packed series and love the characters within. Sadly, while I enjoyed Calamity it ended up fizzling and did not deliver the intense epic final battle I craved.

The Shore by Sara Taylor

As a reader, I am sure you often wonder what draws another reader to a particular book. Is it the cover or perhaps the synopsis? I was drawn to The Shore for a number of reasons.

The Shore is a collective of stories and perspectives that both intrigued and frustrated me.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight is the second book in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. I began reading this series, but after listening to the short story, Mitosis, I decided to switch formats. MacLeod Andrews does an awesome job of bringing the characters, particular David to life. If Superheroes and villains make you grin, then you will enjoy the post-apocalyptic world Sanderson has created.

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

Mitosis is a mini-story set between Steelheart and Firelight books in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. MacLeod Andrews narrate the audio and he nailed David. While the story is only one hour and three minutes long it has all the things I love about this series. Mitosis while small delivered an evil Epic, news about Newscago and plenty of action.
