{Book Details}
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 the Reckoners’ leader struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. 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.

{My Review}
I have loved this series from the start. Calamity was a great way to finish up with several surprising things at the end. Some things I had guessed about earlier, but others were a complete shock. Though this third book was good, I still like the first book Steelheart the best out of all three books in the series. David grew so much throughout the books, but especially in Calamity. He is such an amazing character and one that I'll always remember. I don't say that about all of the characters I meet in stories.This series overall delivers a powerful story that all readers will love and Brandon Sanderson fans will be once again fully satisfied by Calamity and The Reckoners series.
