Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Mistborn series and Words of Radiance comes Calamity, the final book in the New York Times best-selling Reckoners series. What started in the instant number-one New York Times best seller Steelheart and continued in the instant number-one New York Times best seller Firefight now concludes in Calamity.
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.

Climactic Battles Second Chances? as Calamity Ends

When last we left the Reckoners their leader Jonathan Phaedrus had given into his powers. Now David Charleston, “The Steelslayer,” is out to prove that Epics can be redeemed. He and his crew of Epic killers travel to the city of Ildithia, formerly known as Atlanta but now located in Kansas (you’ll find out why and how), where a series of raids, chases, rescues, and stunningly destructive spectacles of both magic and high tech gizmos arises; comic book action at its finest.
This is a terrific ending to a fantastic trilogy and the final outcome was surprising. Like most of Brandon Sanderson’s books the writing is never boring and the narrator, MacLeod Andrews, gives another great performance. I would recommend this trilogy to anyone that likes this genre.

An epic ending to an epic story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's the third book that concludes "The Reckoners" series, but a well written and heartfelt conclusion it is. I recommend the entire series, actually, as the story's quality stays strong till the very end.


Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

Oh, tough question. They were all so great. David and his bad similes still take the cake, but the rest were so awesome that it's hard to choose. Most of the Reckoners could probably be the main character in their own novel; they were all likable, but some had still relatively mysterious open ended pasts that could be expanded upon.

MacLeod Andrews did a near perfect job in his narration throughout this whole series. No exaggeration.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Broken, but not beaten.
