Good little interlude
In anticipation of Reckoner's Book 2, I re-listened to Steelheart, and tacked on Mitosis for good measure.
Perfectly in keeping with Steelheart - characters and theme. Macleod Andrews is also absolutely consistent, so the effect is that this could be simply another chapter to Steelheart.
"Short, but perfectly baked" is my verdict. I wouldn't have wanted to spend a whole credit on something this short, but the sale price + an audible voucher I had, made it worth it.
Ready for the next book now.....

A nice re-introduction
A nice little story to get me back in the mood ready for 'Firefight', the second novel in the Reckoners series. It doesn't really give anything away, or help you to learn anything, but will be enjoyable if you were a fan of 'Steelheart'. It is full of action; the entire story is a fight between the Reckoners and a strong epic called Mitosis. It reminds us how far the characters have come, and how much stronger they are, which means the next novels are going to have to step it up a gear (knowing Sanderson, this won't be a problem).
Was it worth the money? Probably not. You will no doubt make you own mind up about the price though, and if it isn't an issue, you are sure to enjoy it.
Performance - 4.5/5
It's nice to get the same narrator doing the short stories and novellas as the main series. Macleod Andrews is spot on again with this. He has a strong American accent, which suits the characters in this story perfectly.

Loved the narration and the story was entertaining, I cracked up in a couple of parts when reminded of just how bad David's metaphors are! I don't think it's common for novellas to be mind blowing however just based on their length and lack of complexity which is why it's a 3 star for me. Solid and fun.

the book is barely a page long, would recommend if you can get for free but not worth a credit....

Great short story following on from book 1
Great short story following on from book 1. Usual great performance and characters. Love all of his work and now it's time for Firefight book 2 I think?

Short sweet same as the others :) (book 1.5)
Bridging the gap between book 1 and 2 this is a nice little novella to give you your reckoners fix. One warning it is very short.
