After the disaster in Babilar in the previous book, Firefight, the team is back, weakened and down a few members, but David has a plan. Sort of. He's almost certain that Epics can fight the evil tearing them apart. Now the trouble is figuring out how.
I really wanted to love this book. I certainly loved the idea of it. I've been swept up in the action, humour and fun in the first two, but unfortunately the third one lagged a bit behind. I still love the world building and the characters, but I think Calamity (the character, not the book itself) is too simple, Knighthawk is too advanced and Megan too overly achieving. I guess I just didn't quite follow Sanderson's overall plot line and how he wanted it all to pan out. It didn't quite work for me. I put the book down for weeks on end, because it just never really pulled me in, and once I finally managed to sit down and finished it, I found the ending a bit rushed. David's odd sense of humour and weird metaphors didn't appeal to me either this time around, often just making jarring halts in the flow of the story, rather than actually being funny.
All in all, a series worth reading if you're into action / science fiction / fun / supernatural abilities, but the final book is a bit of a let down, compared to the first. It's still good, but not great.
