Calamity #24


I finally got around to reading one of my most anticipated releases of 2016!

"When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy.

David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when Prof struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Once the Reckoners’ leader, Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back. . .

But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying."

This was such a good ending and wrap up the reckoners series. I had forgotten how much I loved this world and the characters in it. Seeing the development of the team and them as friends is something I've truly loved reading about. The writing style throughout is the style that leaves you wanting more because you're so invested in this world. I've never ever been sucked into a book series as much as I have with the reckoners series, there was never a dull moment. From the first page of every book to the last you're just completely emerged in the writing and the world.

The relationship between the characters, with working together to bring Prof back was something I never thought I'd see handled so well. You see them all dependent on prof throughout the series, which was nice to see them handle things without him.

David's character development was probably my favourite throughout this series, he joined as someone not everyone was struck on but now you see him in charge and having people listen and support him.

The ending to the book was a good ending, an ending I'm glad happened.

I'm sad to see this series end as it was my absolute favourite.

Love, Beth x
