Waiting on Wednesday #18

Hosted by Breaking the Spine!  
This Week I Am Waiting On...
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Publication Date: September 24th, 2013
Genre: Science Fiction/Dystopia
Amazon/Barnes and Noble
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.
Steelheart has been getting awesome reviews, and both my friend, Zoette, and I agree that the synopsis sounds extremely interesting! What do you think? Other W.O.W picks we debated were To All the Boys I've Loved Before, The Eye of Minds, and Pawn. There are so many books we are waiting for! Steelheart wins first place though...

What was your WOW pick this week?
