Okay for a short story while waiting on the next novel but, without any real drama around trying to figure out the enemy's weakness, nothing special.

Review by

A quick audio short that bridges <i>Steelheart</i> to <i>Firefight</i> (but is not necessary to jump right into <i>Firefight</i>), <i>Mitosis</i> deals with how the Reckoners are adjusting the city of Newcago to be free of the rule of Steelheart. It sets up in more detail how they have tried to keep things are much the same as they were before, but for the better of the citizens instead of for the sole purpose of making Steelheart's rule absolute. Of course, what's a Reckoner story without at least one Epic, and here we are introduced to Mitosis, who can split himself into as many clones as he needs. He has come to Newcago to take down David and the Reckoners so that he can take rule of Newcago, but naturally, this doesn't actually en too well for him. Again, a decent enough story, but not something that is necessary to listen to between <i>Steelheart</i> and <i>Firefight</i>.

Review by

This is a short novella that takes place between the books Steelheart and Firefight. There's the same action filled chapters, the same awful metaphors, and the same teenage charm. Short, but engaging and fun.
