 Title: Calamity (Reckoners #3)
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Number of Page: 448
Publisher: Ember

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 Prof, 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.

The last book ending made me pick this book right away. I want to see how David dealt with Prof who now became the villain. 

The setting of this book was in Atlanta which was called Ildithia. As always, there was a High Epic governing this city. His name was Lancener who could steal any Epics ability. David went to this city because Prof wanted to challenge and kill Lancener. 

At last, every single questions and mysteries were answered in this book. Brandon Sanderson never disappoints. The origin of Epic power, what is Calamity, and why Epics are mostly evil. It was a satisfying conclusion and I like every seconds of it. The action sequences are still badass. 

Despite anything, I would say that this series is too simple for me. I guess I start to switch my preference to adult and complicated themes. I still like this book for simply for the quality of the story and the ideas.
