Trailer Tuesday: Steelheart

At this point everyone who follows my blog must know of my love for Brandon Sanderson, so it makes sense that I'm thrilled about his upcoming book Steelheart. If you haven't head of him, well, this is as good a book to start with as any.  Or you could check out his 2013 hugo-winning novella, The Emperor's Soul.  Anyway, they just released the trailer for Steelheart a few days ago, so check it out below.

Now, here's the quick summary from Goodreads and the cover. Enjoy!

Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics.

But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. 

Nobody fights the Epics... nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them.

And David wants in. He wants Steelheart—the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father. For years, like the Reckoners, David's been studying, and planning—and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience. 

He's seen Steelheart bleed. And he wants revenge.    Quoted from Goodreads
