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.

Er is een probleem opgetreden tijdens het filteren van de recensies. Probeer het later opnieuw.
Calamity however was somewhat of a dissapointment after the previous books in this series.
I think the book itself is a little slow and the ending really anti-climactic.
Nuttigste klantenrecensies op Amazon.com
I’ve been told that the first book is being optioned for a movie, and I could not be more excited. Reading this series is akin to watching a Marvel movie. It has super-villains pitted against the heroes/Reckoners, so a lot of fighting and action occurring, with displays of supernatural abilities. We also have our main character, David, who is strong, smart, and determined… but also a bit silly and naïve. He provides much needed humor to what can be dark circumstances. There’s also a lot of camaraderie amongst the Reckoners, and chemistry between David and Megan. To me, everything comes together in just great storytelling. I would, and have, recommend this series to people who enjoy YA, action, sci-fi/fantasy, and superheroes with a twist.
This was my least favorite of the series by far. I was pretty disappointed as the first book started out so strong. But the ending was very unsatisfying. The beginning and middle of the story was fine, filled with David's hilarious metaphors and fun-snappy language between the Reckoner crew that had me smiling. But then its the climax of the story, and I just felt that it was completely rushed. The idea was there, but the execution was off.
Brandon Sanderson in regards to his "magic system." In his other novels like Mistborn his magic systems usually make logical sense and follow a pre-established set of guidelines. However, the longer this series goes on it seems like the powers, technology, and characters get a bit more thrown together. It seems like Sanderson didn't take the time to develop his characters and world building that are trademark Sanderson. This series seems to merely to be the product of a dinner conversation where one person asked the other "what would the world be like if Superman were a villain?"
TLDR; Solid novel. Substandard world building from Brandon Sanderson.
