Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson Review

It wasn’t until I had finished Firefight that I found out there was a novella between the first and second book in the reckoners series, of course I had to pick it up for the very dear price of 99p and start reading it straight away.



Steelheart may be dead, but Epics still plague Newcago and David and the Reckoners have vowed to fight back.

Taken from Goodreads

So this review won’t be very long seeing how there is only 36 pages to this book, and it took me about 20 minutes to read the whole thing. However in that story David was able to eat a hot dog and kill an epic so basically an everyday job for the reckoners.

What I like most about this book is that it fills in a number of gaps for the second book as there where a lot of mentions of Mitosis and I had no idea who he/she was until I had read this book and now that I have a lot of the gaps have been made up.

The story itself is pretty good, and my favourite was at the very beginning and we were being told about the traditional Chicago hotdogs where like and then straight afterwards they are back doing what they need to do and that is protecting Newcago from epics who want to take over. The story is well written and even though it is 36 pages you will fly through the story very quickly as you just want to keep on reading.

There is not much development with any of the characters other than we get to see the start of theory that becomes kind of a big thing in the Firefight book, I was mentioned that it was during the battle with Mitosis that this theory started to develop so it was great being able to read how it did start.

Overall Brandon Sanderson did another great job of writing a story that made me just want to keep on reading, even if it was only 36 pages. If you haven’t started firefight then give this a quick read first as it is only 99p and you can do it within 20 minutes so have fun.
