Calamity – The Epic Ending

5 Jul

Calamity, Book 3: The Reckoners series

By Brandon Sanderson

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Publication Date: February, 2016

Our house really enjoys Brandon Sanderson books and we have both young adult and adult books around.  My rising senior son read the book first and I only had one question.  Did this book actually end the series?  (I have some bad experiences with books that I thought ended a series but then they kept popping up new ones.). The answer is “Yes”. 

In the first book, Steelheart, Sanderson introduces us to David and a world living under Calamity.  In this book, David still makes interesting metaphors and is still in love with FireFight (read the 2nd book).  But the momentous understanding of the end of the second book and the lose of his mentor, Prof, is huge.  How does it play out in Calamity?  Well things are not quite as they seem.  Can Prof be brought back to himself or will he continue to rampage?  What is the right way to handle things and what is David risking?

It’s a roller coaster ride in Atlanta or in post-Calamity, Ildithia, that is nothing like the Atlanta I live in.  How will David handle things? Will they lose more people? Will they recover Prof?  And, how does he handle the Epic named Calamity?
