I am not sure if anyone has picked up Brandon Sanderson's latest release, as it was the reason for the delay in the next Stormlight book, however Steelheart is a solid read, albeit short and less detailed then his previous works but it will be a series as well. It's written with the influence of comic books in mind when it comes to the story except the characters who are supposed to be the heroes are really the bad guys and it's up to the rebelious people who want to free their city from the tyrant Steelheart, one of the most powerful Epic's in the world. Epic's are people who were given super powers after the appearance of Calamity, a red star that appeared near earth prior to the start of the story. The book takes a first person perspective which is different for Sanderson as he generally writes in third person or from the view of multiple characters at different times which I think he is better at, but the story is well written overall. I'd say it's a little more introductory for his works, it's not overly complicated and doesn't have a huge back story.
