    1. The shorter a Sanderson read is, the less impressed I am with myself if I figure out the twisty paths of that man's genius mind . . . That being said, I GUESSED THE TWIST AGAIN!!! *gloats* *booty shakes* Anyway, MITOSIS was a short entertaining story that gave just a (possible) hint more insight into the mysterious ways of Epics. PLUS, you know, there's all the horribly hilarious metaphors a la David. Highly recommended.My other reviews for this series:Steelheart (The Reckoners, #1)Firefight (Th [...]


    2. 4 stars for this short action packed novella from the reluctant reader and me This was a enjoyable short story that gave me an appreciation for hotdogs! It also appears to be a necessary or maybe a better word is helpful bridge to the next book in the trilogy. In this book we learn how the Reckoners have shed light (literally) on the city of newcago and we are introduced to a new Epic Mitosis who has a very cool power of dividing as many times as he wants. A short read, but I think well worth it [...]


    3. I have only read this book for 1 hour!It is very entertaining and fun! Alhamdulillah.I love this book so much Alhamdulillah.I am off to 'Firefight' Alhamdulillah!


    4. This was a great short story!Set after of the events on the book Steelheart, now you can starting to understand the new role that The Reckoners must take after taking hard decisions at the end of the first novel.Any action has consequences, and now The Reckoners know that anything that they, or some of its team, may done, will have sequels.It was a brief reading but it has a great final act, so I was quite glad of having read this short story.I opted not to comment more about this reading to avo [...]


    5. Firstly, let me say that I do love the Reckoner’s series. Brandon Sanderson has such a stylish way of writing David’s story: the prose is short, snappy, and brilliant. This short story also manifests the same flair. But, when considering its structure, reader investment and contribution towards this series, then it can only be thought of as a waste of time. There, I actually said it. Brandon Sanderson has actually written something that I don’t like. I never thought I’d live to see the d [...]


    6. The best way to describe this very short story is meh.I don't know if it will add anything to the series (I'll update after reading book 2) but I wasn't feeling it. It was okay!


    7. Why is this so short?!?!?! Well it is a SHORT story, but stillSolid bridge between first and second book. Now off to Firefight. Can't wait for my mind to be blown again.


    8. This is a super short novella involving how the city has changed after the ending of Steelheart. It is not necessary to read for the next Novel but it probably just ~30 minutes of reading time if you have some time to kill.The Good: We get a glimpse of how the people in the city are changing and a few bad metaphors from David.“I like it. The colors are different. Not like the city was before Calamity, but also a big change from how it was under Steelheart. They make the city look like a big ch [...]


    9. *** 4 ***An impromptu buddy read with BB&BA fast, light and delightful short story, which fits between the first and second books of the series. It was definitely on the comedy side of Sanderson and a transition from the tyranny of Steelheart to the effort of being human governed. People are still uncomfortable with the thought of the possibility of being free Don't attempt reading if you have not read the first volume, but if you have, definitely a fun addition'-) Have a great time reading! [...]


    10. Do not read the blurb for this book if you haven't read and are planning to read book one. Major book one spoiler And if you haven't read book one. I'm so happy to be back in Newcago! Even if it was for only 35 pages, it was 35 pages of humor, action, characters I love, and a new Epic to tie me over until book 2.Loved it!


    11. Short and action packed. It's not a must before Firefight, but it gives a clue about Epics and their weaknesses! And we get more of David's terrible metaphors. :D


    12. Quick, fun read. Gave a few hints toward the series. Found one inconsistency that bothered me. (view spoiler)[A gun replicated to each clone but yet the clones had to pass a knife forward. Pretty basic flaw to miss. (hide spoiler)]


    13. This is a nice addition to the Reckoners series. The audiobook has a great narrator and it's short. It's only an hour long and that's if you listen to it at regular speed. There isn't a lot I can say without giving anything away. The beginning was funny and the end circles back around. I enjoyed the interaction between David and Mitosis! This has major spoilers in it so you definitely need to read Steelheart first.



    14. This was a tiny novella set after the events in Steelheart. It provided a quick glimpse of what life is like in a post-Epic Newcago. The Reckoners are in charge for now, but the populace are wary and fearful that it is only a matter of time before a new Epic appears to claim the city. In this novella David and the Reckoners fend off the first of the Epics to make a try. The self replicating one man army Mitosis. This was a fun read. It has served its purpose of hyping me up to read Firefight!Rat [...]


    15. El episodio es entretenido, pero nada del otro mundo. Eso sí, el último capítulo plantea unos interrogantes que vienen muy bien de cara a empezar Firefight Qué inteligente es Sanderson.Echaba de menos a mis Reckoners ❤️


    16. "Why'd ya read it, E.? Thought you hated the first book?"You'd be right. I did hate the first book. But, you see, I got a code for the audiobook and well, here, read this:I read this because the Epic, Mitosis, is mentioned in the first few chapters of Firefight, which I also happened to get free through Audible. I'd seen this short story floating around on , but figured it was a standalone deal. Then What's-his-face (the narrator) brings up the fight in the new book, so I figured it was importan [...]


    17. A nice filler between Steelheart and Firefight. This book is about Mitosis, who is again an Epic, and who wants some answers about how Steelheart died. He corners David and tries to intimidate him into giving him some answers.A fast paced short read that acts as a perfect, if somewhat unnecessary filler between the two books. However, I feel that the question raised at the end of this book will form an important basis for the next book, at least that is my hope. Only reading the second book will [...]


    18. I actually like this short story more than the first book. Maybe I'm warming up to David as a main POV character.Following the defeat of Steelheart and Nightweilder, the city of Newcago--that word still makes me cringe--is now a sunny post-apocalyptic refuge for the powerless. But the people are still weary, as though expecting a new Epic to defeat the Reckoners and plunge the city back into darkness. And one does step up to the challenge--Mitosis. He's the first to pose a threat, but he's certa [...]


    19. What can i even say? It's Brandon Sanderson, of course i loved it. And even thought it was very short, we still had a beautifull variety of bad methaphors and some pretty good action. David is even more badass than he thinks he is.



    20. 4 Estrellas y son por la brevedad del relato. Muy corto, pero que dice mucho, apenas han sido 35 páginas, pero ha sido muy conciso, lleno de ansiedad y acción."Mitosis" ocurre entre "Steelheart" y "Firefight", así que declaro obligatorio leerlo después del primero. También añade una pequeña dosis de misterio, pues todo parece indicar que los Reckoners no estarán en Chicago Nova en el siguiente libro, si no en Babilonia Restaurada (me he quedado bizca al ver el nombrecito de lo que conoce [...]


    21. Al principio le iba a dar a este libro 4 estrellas, de hecho, se las puse. Y es que en mi cabeza tengo registrado que un spin-off, o cualquier novela corta, jamás podría rellenar esas 5 estrellas perfectas. Pero luego de unos minutos me di cuenta de que sí, Mitosis se merece esas 5 estrellas, sin importar que tenga menos de 40 páginas.*Spoilers de Steelheart a continuación, lee bajo tu propio riesgo*Este spin-off nos sitúa un poco después de los eventos ocurridos en Steelhaert, nos da un [...]


    22. A short story in the Reckoners series, this is all about an Epic who is able to clone himself an infinite amount of times. Kinda like horcruxes, because if one of them remains, the dude won't die. It's an interesting conundrum, but apparently easily solved, because this book clocks in at just over 30 pages. Easily solved if you have the right info or luck. David has a little bit of both, but that doesn't really mean much when he's been shot and is now bleeding profusely at the end of a tunnel th [...]


    23. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.4 Stars!I joined a large group of people in a buddy read of Steelheart earlier in this month and absolutely loved it. I love to listen to audiobooks while I workout. The problem is that I don't really love to work out so it can take me forever to finish a book just because I have a hard time getting to the gym. With the next book in the Reckoners series coming out soon, I thought that this short story would be great for today's trip to the gy [...]


    24. Read this review and more on my blogThis is just a short "review", considering it's only a novella that I'm going to add to the end of my Firefight review on my blog. If you were interested I have a review here for the first book SteelheartMitosis takes place between the events of books 1 and 2 in the Reckoners series and is a nice "bridge" story to flow fromSteelheart toFirefight. It's not necessarily anything extraordinary but it's another enjoyable adventure in this dark world that got me pum [...]


    25. “This is what we get,” Abraham said, “for coming out into the open. It is why Jon always wanted to remain hidden.”“We can’t stand for something if we only move in shadows, Abraham,” I said.A novella with some very interesting tidbits. Full of action and funny moments. It's not necessarily a must read, but still worth-while to spend some more time with the adorable David and his awesome Reckoners, and also to gain some more information about this world Brandon Sanderson has created. [...]


    26. [4.5 stars]This is one of the few novellas I felt actually added something essential to the series. The ongoing arc of The Reckoners is the characters’ struggle to figure out how epics’ weaknesses work. Mitosis offers so many clues! And I came away more pumped about the series than ever. This novella is totally worth your time if you plan to read the series.Via The Obsessive Bookseller at nikihawkes


    27. Feb 2016: A thread in BB&B came up and I couldn't resist rereading this as well.What a quick, fun and action-packed read! I miss David's bad metaphors.


    28. The few first sentences of this short novel made me rate it 5 stars right away.The day had finally arrived, a day I'd been awaiting for ten years. A glorious day, a momentous day, a day of import and distinction.It was time to buy a hot dog.Okay I was kidding, obviously there are a lot more reasons why this short novel was pretty amazing.Brandon Sanderson is the only author (as of right now) who could write anamazing SHORT NOVEL .I mean, you have to admit thatmostshort novels are either mediocre [...]
