With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics ... nobody but the Reckoners.

the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father. For years, like the Reckoners, David's been studying, and planning --
and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience. He's seen Steelheart bleed. And he wants revenge.
