April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Book description:
Brandon Sanderson, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Words of Radiance, coauthor of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents Mitosis, a short story set in the action-packed world of Steelheart and Firefight: the Reckoners series, exclusively available in the digital format. Epics still plague Newcago, but David and the Reckoners have vowed to fight back. Catch all the action before, Calamity, the exciting sequel to Firefight, hits shelves in 2016..

A quick audio short that bridges Steelheart to Firefight (but is not necessary to jump right into Firefight), Mitosis 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 Steelheart and Firefight.
