After defeating Steelheart, there is a power void in Newcago. The Reckoners step in to try and provide stability but the population is still scared, waiting for another Epic to step in and take Steelheart's place. Then Mitosis, an Epic who can split himself off into innumerable clones appears, intent on taking out David and learning who really killed Steelheart.
This a short story set in the dystopian world first created in <b>Steelheart</b>, available only in digital format. It is a fine story, though nothing special, and really acts primarily as a teaser to get the reader ready for the second book in the Reckoners trilogy. It starts to set up some of what is to come, but is clearly not intended to be an essential read.
