Brandon Sanderson
Steelheart Cover



I'll be honest with you - this is my least favorite book I've read by Sanderson. So many people were saying this was really good, but I was hesitant because it was YA. My instincts were correct in that I didn't really enjoy it much. I would have loved it when I was 12 or 13, though.

This isn't to say the book is bad in any way. It was a quality book, well constructed, with engaging characters and a really truly hateable villain. The concept is pretty cool as well. It's just not for me. The relationship stuff was very YA and it was a little cringey for an adult to read. I don't think I will read any more in this series.

Also I find it really unsettling to read a Sanderson book that takes place on Earth. It just feels... wrong, for some reason.
