Firefight by Brandon Sanderson: Epic Reading Giveaway

contests giveaways banner
Today, we’re celebrating the recent release of Firefight by Brandon Sanderson, the sequel to Steelheart, with a fabulous contest! Read on for details & more about both books:

FIREFIGHT coverBrandon Sanderson is back with a vengeance in FIREFIGHT, the follow up to the #1 New York Times bestselling Steelheart. In the book that Kirkus Reviews is calling a “rare middle volume that keeps the throttle open,” Sanderson takes readers on another a thrill ride and “presents a Marvel Comics-style mix of violently destructive battles, fabulous feats and ongoing inner wrestling over morality and identity.

David Charleston still can’t believe it. Steelheart is dead, and he died by David’s own hand. Even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic, but the invincible has fallen and now Newcago is free. Despite attaining revenge for the murder of his father and living his dream as a team member of the most elite Reckoners cell, David finds he has more questions than ever before, and he won’t find the answers in his home city.

Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as Manhattan, could hold the key. Ruled by the mysterious and ambivalent High Epic Regalia, Babylon Restored is a place flooded with water and painted in neon, where the inhabitants spend most of their days lounging and nights partying. David can’t seem to understand the complacency of the city and its residents, but what he does understand is that being positioned here, risky as it may be, could lead him to the answers he so desperately seeks. Because there is an emptiness in him, one left behind after killing Steelheart, that was filled unexpectedly by Firefight, who is just plain Megan to him. And David will stop at nothing to find a way to understand Epics and bring her back to him. Hopefully for good this time.

The second book in the Reckoners series and follow up to the highly acclaimed Steelheart, which Publishers Weekly called “an absolute page-turner,” FIREFIGHT is filled with spine-tingling adventure and heart-racing action that promises to satisfy fans both new and old.

  1. Anything can be an epic reading experience, but it is that moment where you don’t want to put the book down, and you don’t have to & the next thing you know you are done with the book. Sigh.

  2. I was introduced to Sanderson when he took over Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series (which was definitely an epic series). To be epic, a story needs compelling characters fighting for a cause that can really get you to rally behind them in their quest.

  3. I always enjoy an intricate plot, strong characters and a book that builds to a climax. Thanks for the chance to win Firefight.

  4. To me, an epic reading experience is when you literally read the whole book in one sitting, and when you finish you realize that you’ve just spent the past few hours completely oblivious to the rest of life.

  5. When I think of an epic reading experience, it’s usually from a fantasy book that takes place in a completely different world and time. I really feel as though I’ve been on a journey to an amazing, and often magical, place.

  6. An epic reading experience, to me, is when I can’t stop thinking of the book! I have moments, still do from books I read years ago, where I just randomly remember the book and pretend I am the characters and what I would do!

  7. For me ‘epic’ is being able to listen to the audiobook while reading along with either a print or ebook. I fortunate that my library has a huge OVERDRIVE collection and they frequently get both the ebook and audiobook formats of titles so I don’t have to spend a fortune.

  8. An epic reading expiriance is me not being able to sleep or even put the book down because I MUST know what happens next.

  9. An epic reading experience is when you pick the book up, get so completely enamored by the characters and scenes, that you forget there are even words on the page, just a beautiful story playing in front of you–and before you know it you’ve finished the entire book in one sitting. These are the books that will travel with you forever, the characters constantly making an appearance.
