Yes, awesome scene! The colors and darkness combined with the gun label it "dystopian" instantly. Well done!

Mind if I put this on Tumblr? (Of course I'd link back.) Even better, do you have this on Tumblr already? I like to share directly from the artist's Tumblr page if I can.

Oh god :O. I've just finished listen to this book on Audible! haha. It didn't click until I saw the title :P. But now it all makes sense. The destruction everywhere, the night time. The rifle :P. This is awesome :).

Brandon Sanderson is awesome :P. Have you read The storm light archive? Or Myst born. Myst born is my favorite so far :P

Nice atmosphere! I haven't read all of the novel yet, but I'm guessing this is towards the end because the stars are visible.

Isn't it just. I'm still really *bleh* about the truth of Firefight's power, but I can't wait for the next book all the same.

Honestly I like it. Mostly because of the comic references all contained within it, not to mention how nebulous it is in practice.

The main reason I don't like it is because of how nebulous it is in practice. I feel as though it's just to let Firefight do whatever she needs to do to solve whatever problem she might come up against. There is pretty much no way to guess how she will use her power, which is half the fun of superhero stories. I feel as though the illusion thing was great because it gave her limits, weaknesses. As it is, she can only die in very specific circumstances (not unusual for Epics) but she can also literally reshape the world to suit her own needs. Perhaps she does have weaknesses which will be revealed later on, but until Brandon Sanderson just makes some shit up there is no way to guess what they're gonna be.

Okay, Mild Spoiler Warning for all reading this. If you haven't read FireFight pay this post no mind and yet even so I'm not going to say much except to point out a few things the above poster said.




So yeah, Mild Spoiler Warning. No story beats really, but info on how a character's abilities work, so potential spoiler.



But...but...but...Jean Grey...XD

Besides they limit her pretty easily with the fact that she just isn't that powerful under normal situations. Back when we thought it was just illusions, for all intents and purposes it is still illusions, just with a more interesting hook which allows for it to slip a few of the limitations of illusions. She explains rather in depth about how her powers work and what her weakness means. Now if she really has over come her weakness in that it can no longer harm her fatally...yes she has gotten much more powerful, but even then she would only get that chance once per day as she explained how her reincarnation works as well and that it is the catalyst for taking off the "limiter" on her powers. Remember she only resurrects at sunrise on the day after she died and it is only during that time when she's freshly returned that her powers are more than basically illusion.

Yeah nah I'm all good with the reincarnation. Most Epics are tough to kill. But at the end of Firefight she used Prof's own power against him by....using alternate realities? I don't get that. Hell if she'd used some funky illusory double to fight him or something that'd make more sense, but changing reality to make an enemy accidentally target himself with his own powers. What even is that? I guess it also bothers me that all Epic powers thus far have been mental, physical or elemental. Even something like Steelheart's energy blasts are probably just plasma or something. Kind of like X-Men (which admittedly I know nothing about beyond the newer films). But suddenly Firefight has this funky interdimensional stuff going on, it just feels weird to me. I did forget that part where her powers are strongest right after reincarnation though, been a while since I read Firefight.

Ah, finally! Steelheart fanart!

I keep trying to find where people have done fanart, because the book seems ripe with imagery, but it seems to be rare. :-/

Fitting, imagery, I think. And I like the lighting from Calamity. :-D

Firefight is good, too, if you haven't read it yet, and it's got a lot of cool imagery. :-)
