Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) | 8328 comments Babylon Restored, formerly Manhattan, may give David answers. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.

Awesome :) I'll be jumping into it this afternoon.


Karen Barber | 10142 comments Just finished Steelheart and waiting for my library copy of Firefight to come in.

Lily (galvadonexnorta) | 217 comments Part 1- The beginning seems to be starting off a bit predictably. Have they mentioned Regalia’s powers or are they yet to be found out? I’m wondering if we will meet other branches of the Reckoners at some point.

Lily (galvadonexnorta) | 217 comments I’m enjoying Obliteration and Regalia. (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10142 comments Part 1. Yes, it does seem a little obvious here. Like a reminder of book one but just dropping a few hints.


message 10: by Dannii (new)

Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) | 8328 comments I'm running SUPER late on this BR as I thought my library hold would have come in by now. I have the book and am going to start this one, tomorrow :)

Lily (galvadonexnorta) | 217 comments That’s fine. (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10142 comments I’m still reading it but got caught up with some family stuff. Part way through part two-introduction to Regalia is interesting.


Karen Barber | 10142 comments Part two. Curious to see what Prof is planning. Increasingly irritated by the fact that Sanderson has David referring to metaphors when he’s using similes - how did nobody spot this?

Karen Barber | 10142 comments Up to part four. (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10142 comments Well, that didn't quite go as I'd expected. Some great moments, but - overall - this was unevenly paced. Full review on home page, but I have been left interested enough to read Calamity and see if things take the turn I'm expecting.

Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) | 8328 comments Just starting on this one :)


Karen Barber | 10142 comments I’ve enjoyed this series more than I expected to. They’re paced quite well, and easy to read. Can’t wait to see what you make of this. I’m waiting for my copy of Mistborn 1 from the library...

Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) | 8328 comments I read The Final Empire last month and ADORED IT. I'm currently reading The Well of Ascension and it is just as good so far. I hope you enjoy the series as much as I am :)

Oooh that would be interesting, to meet other branches!

Those were exactly my thoughts when reading this part, too!

I completely anticipated this going a different way too, but it's left me excited to continue with book three.

No, Sanderson's definitely got better books. It's the weakest in terms of originality, at least, when it comes to the world-building. But I still like the series.

I do too, a few months ago, I read the last book first, and like these are really good stand alones even if you don't fully know some of the characters pasts.


Elena Granger | 601 comments I finally managed to start reading Mitosis (it's a small 1.5 book in the series) and right after that going to read Firefight.


Elena Granger | 601 comments Chapter 11 I love the setting and also the idea, but compared to other Sanderson's works this one is weak :( I do enjoy reading, but something is always missing.

Wait, you read Calamity first? That might have been a bad idea since you'd already know most of the things revealed.


Elena Granger | 601 comments 50% Still ok, but nothing special. Definitely not his best series.
(view spoiler)
Looking forward to read more today.


Elena Granger | 601 comments 50-85%
I'm going to finish reading today. Nothing changed, pretty boring and predictable plot. I still like some parts, main ideas, though not the story. Disappointed and hope the final parts of this book and the next book will be better.
