To short

An excellent listen between Steelheart and Firefight. Covers that part of the storyline I felt was missing when I jumped directly to Firefight. Was just way to short.

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


Story 4/5

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.


Overall 4/5
