Who is the narrator in Steelheart?
The narrator is David Charleston, 18, who is living in a post-apocalyptic Chicago, now called Newcago. Twelve years earlier, “Calamity” appeared in the sky, and the next year, ordinary men started changing into “Epics” – people who had some sort of superpower (which varied among Epics).
What is the message of Steelheart?
The main theme of Steelheart is mainly David’s quest for revenge, but the novel also addresses the idea that power corrupts (quite literally, in this case). Although the setting is a post-apocalyptic Chicago, Sanderson emphasizes hope and perseverance.
Is Steelheart in the Cosmere?
It is the first novel in The Reckoners series, which is not part of the cosmere.
