From "New York Times" bestselling author Brandon Sanderson's action-packed novel "Steelheart" comes "Mitosis," a short story set in the world of The Reckoners series, exclusively available in the digital format. Steelheart may be dead, but Epics still plague Newcago and David and the Reckoners have vowed to fight back.
Mitosis is a mini-story set between Steelheart and Firelight in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. MacLeod Andrews narrates 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.
I enjoyed seeing what was happening in Newscago after the events that unfolded in Steelheart. I love the good verse evil, superhero vibe of this series and Sanderson delivered all the elements I enjoy in this short novella. It was interesting to see how the humans were surviving the changes to Newscago, and at first I was surprised. We gain a little knowledge about main characters and it was fun seeing David, well being David. For fans of the series, it is worth a listen.
MacLeod did an excellent job portraying David and even made me laugh as he captured some of David’s sarcasm and his interaction with others. I loved the voice he used for our evil Epic. Audiobooks are a new passion for me this year, and until now I have been staying with the same format for trilogies and series that I began with..but I might just break that trend and go for Firelight on audio.
Mitosis offered a neat fix for fans as we await the release of Firelight on January 6, 2015. Mitosis is currently free at audible.com
