Description:

From the bestselling author of the Mistborn series and *Words of Radiance* comes *Calamity,* the final book in the *New York Times *bestselling Reckoners series. What started in the instant #1 *New York Times* bestseller *Steelheart* and continued in the instant #1 *New York Times* bestseller *Firefight* now concludes in *Calamity*.     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.
