I am a writer of science fiction and fantasy and also an avid reader of (mostly) the same. Expect to see reviews from me of speculative fiction books from well known and less well known authors. (Many of my reviews WILL be cross posted from Goodreads).

Steelheart

Steelheart - Brandon Sanderson Brandon Sanderson has missed his vocation writing all of that epic fantasy.

Steelheart is YA supers.

Without the heroes part. An event causes people to manifest superpowers. But they're all evil. Every last one of them. One of them killed David's father and transformed Chicago into Newcago, his personal fiefdom. David's out for revenge - and hooks up with an underground organization, the Reckoners, to achieve it.

Absolutely brilliant. If you like supers, it's brilliant. If you liked DIvergent, this is better.
