Goodreads Summary:

When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy.

David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when Prof struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Once the Reckoners’ leader, Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back. . .

But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying.

Goodreads Summary:

They told David it was impossible—that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart—invincible, immortal, unconquerable—is dead. And he died by David’s hand.

Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there’s no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs.

Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. 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.

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made ten years earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

The Reckoners Trilogy: A Recap


Steelheart will make you wonder.

Firefight will make you swoon.

Calamity will freak you out.

This is, so far, the best fantasy series I’ve ever read. This took me to a world where possibilities are endless, where everyone can be a hero or a villain. This took my imagination to the next level. Changed my views on war and whose fault it really is. This is majestic and romantic, and EPIC. (PUN INTENDED)

My favorite character is David, of course. He’s the book boyfriend who would go against what he believes in and opens his mind to find solutions to make a forbidden love right – HE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU EVEN IF YOU TRY TO KILL HIM.

Which makes Megan my second favorite character. She’s not a hopeless romantic, but she is so strong and really, kick-ass. I could imagine Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood playing in the background. Or maybe Wonder Woman’s entrance theme from Batman v Superman? You get the point. This girl is #goals.

My favorite moments were mostly David + Megan moments in Firefight, but I also love the ultimate revelation of who Calamity really is and THE GREAT IRONY!!!

Favorite epics? Megan, of course. Then Prof. And Dawnslight. The messages were really cute. 🙂

Steelheart and Calamity both have five-star ratings, but I gave Firefight an infinity symbol even if it didn’t make me cry because I LOVED IT THAT MUCH. And for the record, a scene almost made me cry.

It’s just, of all fantasy worlds, the Reckoners’ world is my favorite and you guys have to read the books, too! Especially bookish friends from the Philippines! The Reckoners series is popular in other countries, but I don’t see much hype with Filipino bookworms. I’m guessing these books just need a boost, so here we go!

THE RECKONERS SERIES IS ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Goodreads Summary:

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision-a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo-a prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes the hellish prison.

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all-Callie, herself.
