Brandon Sanderson’s Steelheart Debuts at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List

Brandon Sanderson’s new young adult novel Steelheart, out now from Delacorte Press, has debuted at #1 on the New York Times Young Adult Bestseller list for the week of October 13th!

Steelheart imagines our world as taken over by superpowered humans dubbed Epics, the most evil of whom is the eponymous Steelheart himself, a seemingly invincible Epic. But our hero, David has seen Steelheart bleed, and if he can discover what Steelheart’s weakness is, maybe he can avenge the death of his father and make things the way they used to be.

We’ve been talking a lot of the book, and the various tropes and mysteries it contains, here on You can see our coverage collected here.

Congratulations to Brandon on the debut!
