Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

OBS - denne anmeldelse indholder SPOILERS for den første bog i serien Steelheart

From the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of Words of Radiance coauthor of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart.

They told David it was impossible--that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart--invincible, immortal, unconquerable--is dead. And he died by David's hand.
Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs.
Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic--Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.


Firefight er en helt igennem fantastisk 2'er. Sproget og skrivestilen er det samme som i den første [Steelheart], og det fungerer bare så godt. Jeg er totalt tosset med Sanderson i forvejen, men han formår virkelig at hamre igennem med denne 2'er i serien om David og the Reckoners, der denne gang tager kampen om mod den Epic, der hersker over, hvad der engang var New York.

Plottet løber på ingen måde i en lige linje og adskillige hændelser blæste mig fuldstændig omkuld. Der er så mange spørgsmål, der kræver svar. Der er en kærlighedshistorie, der aldrig får lov at tage overhånd, men alligevel spiller så væsentlig en rolle. Der er magtkamp, der udspiller sig på flere niveauer, og sidst men ikke mindst så sker der bare konstant noget.

Jeg glæder mig enormt meget til næste bog i rækken, og heldigvis er Sanderson én af de forfatter, der formår at skrive meget virkelig godt på ganske kort tid - bog 3, Calamity, er sat til at blive udgivet i januar 2016.

Sanderson went and did it again, didn't he? Firefight is an absolutely brilliant sequel to Steelheart in which we follow David and the Reckoners taking on even more Epics - and this time they're taking the fight to what used to be New York. The plot takes many twists and turn and it completely threw me, how freaking awesome it turned out. I'm such a huge fan of this series and love how action-packed and different it is from "regular" fantasy. It's excellently written and completely captivating. Yay!

  1. Åh, jeg kunne virkelig godt lide 'Stålhjerte' og jeg glæder mig virkelig meget til at få læst fortsættelsen!
    Sanderson kan uden tvivl noget helt specielt og som du selv skriver, så fører han ikke handlingen i en lige linie, hvilket giver læseren mange flere overraskelser! :)
