Entertainement Weekly revealed the cover and blurb for Brandon Sanderson first book in a new trilogy set in a dystopian world that will be released in September 2013. The cover art for Steelheart is quite interesting, right up my alley, and it comes with the blurb:
There are no heroes.Every single person who manifested powers—we call them Epics—turned out to be evil.Here, in the city once known as Chicago, an extraordinarily powerful Epic declared himself Emperor. Steelheart has the strength of ten men and can control the elements. It is said no bullet can harm him, no sword can split his skin, no explosion can burn him. He is invincible.It has been ten years. We live our lives as best we can. Nobody fights back . . . nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans who spend their lives studying powerful Epics, finding their weaknesses, then assassinating them.My name is David Charleston. I’m not one of the Reckoners, but I intend to join them. I have something they need. Something precious, something incredible. Not an object, but an experience. I know his secret.I’ve seen Steelheart bleed.
