The Reckoners (book series) is a young adult sci-fi story, set in an undisclosed future in which a major event known as Calamity hits earth. Calamity gifts certain people with superheroic-like powers. They are thus called Epics. With the powers grows the need to destroy, rule, and kill without mercy. Major cities fall under the tyranny of an Epic, with no one but other Epics to get in their way.
The story is told through the eyes of teenager David Charleston, who joins the Reckoners, a ragtag group of fighters intent on killing the Epics, after one of them kills his father. Each book of the Reckoners series is named after an Epic. There are three planned novels in the series, and there is one e-novella currently out.
