    1. Solid conclusion to the series! The final reveal/solution didn't quite pack the PUNCH I was expecting, but I did still thoroughly enjoy this trilogy. Overall, I'd give the series a 4.5 -- definitely recommended if you want a fast-paced, well-developed superhero/supervillain story with great characters and excellent world building. Brandon Sanderson continues to be one of my favorite authors of all time!I talk a bit more about the trilogy overall (spoiler-free!) in this video - youtube/watch?v=gm [...]

    2. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!I had some MAJOR issues with this book, MAJOR ones! What happened Mr Sanderson? Where did your story go? Where did the intensity wonder off to? Where did the snappy writing go, and the energetic action? What happened to everything that made this series great? It vanished.Pffft.Gone. This was a hollow shell of what came before it. I’m shocked, completely shocked. I had high expectations for this; the first two books were brilliant. I couldn’t wait to read the conclusion. It w [...]

    3. My name is David Charleston.I clicked the button.And I kill Epics.The bomb detonated.I loved this book so much! It was perfect for me! ❤Damn, if I didn't cry =( It was a good cry though! ❤David and the group are out trying to stop one of the other people in their group from being bad. Things happened in the last book and now they are trying to make it right. A new character that I fell in love with was Knighthawk. He's freaking awesome and funny and you just have to read about it. He's got h [...]

    4. Sooooo . . . This one . . . I had issues. LOTS of issues. Like a MULTITUDE of unanswered questions. Like the chaotic mess of the last 20%, followed by the way too easy (inevitable) demise of Bad Guy(s)--seriously, during one of them, Sanderson actually said, "just like that."JUST LIKE THAT. Do you guys want to hear that a HEP big Bad Guy was thwarted/overthrown/vanquished/etc. "just like that"?B/c I do NOT.BUT.Sanderson. So many, many good things as well. Full RTC.My other reviews for this serie [...]

    5. [4.5 Stars]I must say, I very much enjoyed this book, but this is the first time I've read a Sanderson novel where I don't think everything made sense.

    6. 3.14159265359 I have no idea how to rate this, so Pi it is StarsBuddy Reading with my fellow Sandersontitus sufferers at- you guys were a blast to read this with.I think this is the first Brandon Sanderson book that when I was done I just wasn’t sure what or even how to rate it. “I feel, like a barrel of green ducks at a Fourth of July parade.”Why you ask am I having so much trouble deciding? Well I’ll tell you… wasn’t like the ending to The Hero Of Ages the only other completed tril [...]

    7. An Epic finale!This is the third and final novel in the book series “The Reckoners” EVEN LARGER WORLDEpics are strange, wonderful, and terrible all at once. Don’t let yourself get drawn in by that. It can lead you to… difficult places.In the two previous novels (along with Mitosis, a short story after the first book), Steelheart and Firefight, you get to know striking looking places such as Newcago (I still laugh about that name… it’s a Spanish-speaking thing) and Babilar, but still [...]

    8. So I've finally taken the leap & finished a Young Adult series by one of my favorite Adult Fantasy writers, and I must say I'm very pleased with the outcome of that risk.I've come to expect great things from Brandon Sanderson & once again I think he's delivered a gem of the genre. Some things you might be wondering:Is the series perfect? No, it isn't perfect. But it's a hell of a ride with some fun characters, an engaging, fast-paced story, and witty, realistic writing. How does this ser [...]

    9. I would like to start by discussing writings of Brandon Sanderson in general even though I risk having a lynching mod of his fans showing at my doors. The guy writes fairly fast and he already delivered several complete series. I wish he would teach Speed Writing 101 to George R.R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, and J.V. Jones, but I strongly suspect they will fail the final exam. Coming back to Sanderson, he creates very original and interesting magic systems. He is one of the best modern fantasy wr [...]

    10. There will be heroes. Just wait.I think this is one of those reviews where I’m going to make it quick: This series, these characters, this author are epic. Truly. I have loved every single minute of this series from beginning to end…Where we're from, there's no sun,Our hometown's in the dark,Where we're from, we're no one,Our hometown's in the dark,Our hometown's in the darkTwenty-one pilots song PERFECT for this series! :Pand I’m not going to tarnish something I’ve always enjoyed with l [...]

    11. You know what's scary? FINALES. Because they're so often disappointing. And unfortunately I was reeeeally disappointed with Calamity. And this is BREAKING MY SOUL because Steelheart and Firefight are two of my FAVOURITE reads of this year!! What even went wrong here?! Why am I a melon of discontent? Whyyyyyyyyy did you have to fail me, Calamity?[INSERT DEJECTED SOBBING]And I mean this book took me a month to read. A MONTH. I listened to the audio, yes, but I just never felt like picking it back [...]

    12. Epic.Okay. Too easy. I mean, some low hanging fruit can be knocked off the tree by Tom Thumb, but Come On, can't you see that was too EASY?Seriously. I can't remember when I've had so much plain simple evil superhero FUN.Are all my expectations met? You betcha.Did sit excitedly through the entire tale, piecing together all the things that came before to make this come to a great end? Yes. Was I truly satisfied? Yes. Yes I was.It's an easy tale that rides all our superhero expectations and toys w [...]

    13. There will be heroes. Just wait.I get why some people dislike this book. But how can anyone dislike this book?Before I started reading Calamity I read a lot of reviews written by people who were disappointed by this book. So I got into it expecting I was not going to like it. And I'm glad I did, because this book surprised the the hell out of me. I'm even going to say that it is my favorite book from The Reckoners series. Calamity picks us where Firefight left off. David and The Reckoners are st [...]

    14. *Fistpumping* Still, hours after this read. I love you Brandon Sanderson.Freaking GoldGold I Say!!RTC

    15. Hello Beautiful Book BlogWell, David Charleston, it seems you got off easy in this final installment. I feel like it was harder to defeat Steelheart.The demands I made before reading Calamity:♥ Backgrounds for Prof, Tia and Mizzy --- Eh.♥ More explanation of "Calamity" --- Mostly.♥ More similes, of course --- Check!♥ Megan and David in love --- ♥♥♥ I'm happy.♥ All my favorite characters live (don't wanna spoil)I guess about 75% was fulfilled. We got very little backgrounds for ev [...]

    16. I thought Calamity was a satisfying conclusion to the Reckoners series. This series is no Cosmere, but it is still a ton of fun. Then again, Sanderson+Superheroes was always going to be a win for me! This third book actually had a slightly sluggish start, but luckily the pace and intensity picked up as the story progressed. David and the Reckoners were on the move again, this time to the mobile city of salt Illithia. I liked the new setting. It was cool and an equal to the likes of NewCago and B [...]

    17. 3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/03/05/aCalamity is the concluding novel of The Reckoners series and it was nothing like I expected, but I have yet to decide whether I feel positively or negatively about that. In truth, I feel torn because even though I enjoyed this book overall, for the first time in a long while I ended a Brandon Sanderson novel without feeling completely satisfied. Here came the long awaited answers to the questions that have been with us since the begin [...]

    18. 3.5"You want to fight a god? You'd better have one on your side too."•I love this series, and that's a fact. I love most of all the world building and David Charleston, and that's another fact. But his off-the wall metaphors are not enough to make up for an ultimately wanting villain and this is the fact that kind of clashes with all the rest and the reason why even though I wanted to rate this book 4 stars so badly, I still found I couldn't really do it.•The thing is, Calamity was used like [...]

    19. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.This has been an amazing trilogy. This is a set of books that I am certain I will read again at some point which is pretty high praise from me. I always try to write spoiler free reviews but this review may have some spoilers for the earlier books in the series because I simply don't know how to avoid that. Honestly, if you haven't read the prior books in this series you will want to stop read my review at this point and start reading Steelhe [...]

    20. Well sparksat wasn't quite what I expected!It's always bittersweet to end a series that you've been with since nearly day one, especially with an author as talented as Sanderson. His characters are vibrant, multifaceted, and always interesting and engaging. As this series ends, I do feel like I'm saying goodbye to some good friends.And yeah, I know there are mixed feelings on this one, leading to some negative reviews and more criticism than Sanderson books usually receive. I get it, naysayers. [...]

    21. 3.5 stars.This isn't bad but it didn't live up the previous books, things were just rushed throughout the book.There were lots of battle scenes,David and more of his crazy metaphors, the dialogues were great but few, I miss the whole former plotting of the team, this one is just rushed, if this was the first or second book it would have been acceptable but its the last book in the series and I expected so much from it. Even my ship that finally sailed was so rare in the book, not to mention that [...]

    22. I liked Steelheart. I loved Firefight. But while Sanderson will still be my favorite author, Calamity was NOT my favorite book. Why?I felt like nothing really happened in the first ~70% percent. And then the whole, imo not sufficiently elaborated alternate reality thing just seemed to bring an effortless convenient solution to a myriad of problems? Too many questions were left unanswered, taking into consideration that this was (should have been) the conclusion to a trilogy. There were plot hole [...]

    23. All three books 4*'s. A lot of people didn't seem to like this one as much as the first two but I thought they were pretty consistent. It's an enjoyable series from start to finish. As a YA series it's pretty basic and easy to read but sometimes that also what you need especially coming off much more challenging reads. It's also nice to enjoy some urban fantasy which I sometimes struggle with. Having everything coming at you in a straightforward manner and not having to worry about symbolism and [...]

    24. Teniendo en cuenta los dos anteriores de la saga, no esperaba mucho más de este tomo. Y así fue. Básicamente sigue la misma línea de Firefight, hasta el último 10 %, que es donde en teoría íbamos a tener todas las respuestas, cosa que no pasó. Eso me extraña de Sanderson, un autor que suele esmerarse por explicar los enigmas con sumo detalle. En Calamity se responden muchísimas preguntas que se fueron sembrando a lo largo de la serie, pero otras quedan sin el profundo esclarecimiento a [...]

    25. I loved this!I thought it was a perfect, and unexpected, ending to the series.My booktube of my fav quotes from CalamityOne of the (many, many) thinks I love about Brandon Sanderson's writing is the layers -- the way our hero David thinks about the Epics, the conclusions he comes to, the ways he's right & wrong.They're all very logical.If all of this information had been thrown at us in the first book, then it wouldn't be nearly as effective.But we start with Steelheart and the very basics o [...]

    26. Some of my friends have mixed feelings about this book.David Charleston, Megan Trash and Mizzy are one of my favourite characters.There is a full of action in this book.I enjoy reading this book but for me at the end of the book is predicted.I am satisfied with the conclusion of 'Reckoners' series.

    27. Update - July 2016 It's been almost six months since I read this and I've finally decided to do what I should have done the day I finished this: take off a star off the rating. I loved this series and I'd read the hell out of anything else Sanderson writes in this universe, but I didn't really love this one. Now back to the old review: Did you watch Interstellar? Did you like it?If the answer is yes, then you’re probably going to love this. If the answer is no… Well, if you’re reading this [...]

    28. 3,5 / 5En este episodio final veremos como David y el resto del equipo tendrá que hacer frente al más poderoso de todos los Épicos tras los sucesos finales de Firefight, el volumen anterior de la saga. Una entrega final que trata de dar respuesta a gran parte de las cuestiones planteadas en los dos anteriores libros de la saga al habitual ritmo de acción, humor, giros reveladores y ese aire de optimismo final que tanto caracteriza al autor de Nebraska.Una prosa directa en tercera persona des [...]

    29. David--still obsessed with Epics (superpowered humans) and still using the worst similes ever--is now the de facto leader of the Reckoners, trying to figure out how to save humanity from the evil that clouds people's minds when they gain superpowers. Killing them off one by one is a losing battle. A lot of readers didn't care for this book as much as the two prior ones, but I actually found Sanderson's handling of the story line quite satisfying. I will admit that the ending raises as many quest [...]

    30. Calamity! The final installment in the Reckoners series has finally arrived. It was funny and action packed and as mysterious as… well I guess you will have to ask David ;)The question is did Brandon Sanderson deliver? As my friend Sevro would say - Cacatne ursus in silvis?PS: On a more detailed note I loved pretty much most of the book. It was a continuation of everything I came to love in the first two books and was most assuredly on its way to five stars, but the whole part (view spoiler)[ [...]
