Firefight



Babylon Restored, formerly Manhattan, may give David answers. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers. - excerpt from book.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson is the second book of the trilogy where the story continues on smoothly from book one. Here the reckoners are at a new adventure and possibly more critical and dire than previous attempts. They travel to a new city with one new aim and David feels there's something missing. I love how that immediately starting the book you're in a lot of action. Catching you off guard is what the author is extremely good at, you can never predict the book. 

The characters are complex and they have much growth in the story. Their actions and reactions greatly moves the story forward. I love David as he is always considerate and written uniquely when it comes to his obsession. His interactions with other characters really drives the book and I always want more of it whenever it comes to his love life. Other characters that keep me on my toes are certainly the lady of the book and also the leader of reckoners as you can tell there is so much more to them that the author has yet to reveal. The more I read the more eager I am to know their stories.

The pace of this book was so good, so much excitement and plot twists in the story. I guess plot twists happens because of the character making impromptu plans on the go. As exciting as a roller coasters, there are moments where it's a bit more relaxing and those are the times where we get to know the characters a bit better. Brandon Sanderson does magic in the way how the story unfolds, I wouldn't say its unique but the on going attention capturing is not achieved by many and he is one of the rare fantasy authors that does.

If I would have to compare, the story just keeps getting better and this book was so much fun and excitement to read. If you love the first, the second will not disappoint and it will even escalate your love for his writing. Kudos to Brandon Sanderson for making me want to read more and more of his books and onward to the final book right after this one. I highly recommend to fantasy lovers to pick up this series as it's has a unique world and anti hero aspect to it.
