Waiting on Wednesday (#45)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it's a weekly meme all about the books that are coming out soon that we really can't wait to read.

Whew, I am on a roll.  WOW every week for like six weeks.  Go me!!  *happy dance*
Anyhoo, this is what I'm waitin' for this week...

Series: Reckoners, Book One
By: Brandon Sanderson
Published: 26th September 2013
Published By: Gollancz
Found: On Goodreads' YA Novels of 2013 Listopia

Synopsis From Goodreads:

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.

I love Sanderson's book  The Rithmatist and can't wait for this book!  Yay! :D

Well, that's what I'm waiting for today!  What are you waiting for? :D

I hadn't heard of this one, but it sounds really good. I like the idea of the shadowy group of assassins! ~Pam
