Mitosis - Brandon Sanderson

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Words of Radiance, co-author of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson, comes Mitosis, a short story set in the action-packed world of Steelheart: the Reckoners series, exclusively available in a HB collector's edition. Epics still plague Newcago, but David and the Reckoners have vowed to fight back. Catch all the action before Firefight, the exciting sequel to Steelheart, hits the shelves. 

My thoughts:
A short story that takes place after book 1. Newcago is trying to get back to normal. Our hero is enjoying a hot dog and normality. But alas, like life could be normal in this post-apocalypic dystopic world.

There is a new baddie to take down and that is what the story is about. An Epic fight to be had.

Short, nice, I do understand the epics now. The power that makes them insane. What good is superhero powers if it makes you into a sociopath? 

I am looking forward to book 2 where the fight to rid the world of Epics will continue.

  4. This was a pretty good short story. Nice filler in between the two books, but I want Firefight already!
