In 1968, he moved to the U.S. with little more than a few hundred dollars and a Herculean dream. Together with his bodybuilding friend, Franco Columbu, he hatched a get-rich-quick scheme. The then 21-year-old thought that, in between sessions pumping iron at Gold’s Gym in Venice, California, the two could maintain their meathead physiques by laying bricks. “Franco’s talent was to be a bricklayer, a very skilled bricklayer, and learned that in Italy and in Germany,” Schwarzenegger told Tim Ferriss.

LXVII (Sixty Seven) The Assassin.
It took me four days to wake up. For a long time, I laid there expecting to be poked and prodded as the Tower tried to erase my humanity and use drugs and other biochemical toxins to attack my brain and somehow wipe out my free will. But nothing came. I was aware of thing, and one thing only. A soft hand was resting in my own, and when I opened my eyes, my entire world was looking back at me with the most beautiful smile I had ever seen. Movement behind her, made me tense, and I suddenly became aware that we were not alone. They called themselves the Resistance. They did a lot of talking which surprised me. It was as if they expected my drugged brain to keep up with them. There were four of them standing around my bed, each one of them armed, but relaxed. I had already taken in the possible exits, and how I could escape, but what they were saying kept me still. They told me how it all began, and I listened. It turns out it all started with the man in the violet city. The Tower had been giving me contracts to kill all the rebels associated with trying to save the experimental mutants like the girl. I just didn’t know it at the time. The rebels had been able to hack into the system and change my contract to the man in the violet city who happened to be the one in charge of it all. I now understood why the Tower had been turned upside down. The rebels had evidently been influencing my actions and controlling the Tower’s biggest “weapon” without them even knowing it. Without me knowing it. How clever of them. The girl didn’t know them either. The rebel’s plan had all fallen apart when the girl had been taken from me and when we had been locked away in the facility. They had been in the midst of trying to break in when my bomb went off, blowing a hole large enough for them gain entry through. They got us out, and were able to download enough files to be able to ruin the Tower for good. All we had to do was act on it, and that left the question. The lead man, stepped forward, the question burning in his cool black eyes. “Will you fight with us?”

LXVIII (Sixty Eight) The Girl.
Two weeks past before we landed. We were met by a crowd of soldiers, but this time was different. This time there were cheers, awing looks, and an overwhelming sense of victory. I suddenly realized that they had been fighting a war, a war I had no idea was going on. They had been fighting for us. For US! I looked to the Assassin. He was as stone faced and as imposing as ever. As we descended the stairs, he was given a wide birth but even though he showed nothing, he received all of the awing looks. I wondered what it would be like to be them, to see the legendary Assassin who had the potential to be both their greatest adversary and their only hope. Inside, we were lead to our rooms and were left alone. “Take some time and freshen up, eat, rest. You have nothing to worry about here.” Those were their parting words. Our rooms were joined together by a sitting room, and this was where the Assassin seated himself and did not move. I chalked it up to him being exhausted from everything he had been through and explored my surroundings, however when I returned. I found that he had not moved a muscle. Tentatively, I seated myself beside him where he immediately took my hand and held it between both of his. “What are you thinking?” I asked. “Do you think we’re safe?” He was quiet for a long moment. “I don’t know,” he finally said, his voice quiet. “I don’t think I’ll ever get to the point where I can trust people.” He paused. “I want to believe them...I just don’t think I can.” I leaned against him, resting my head on his shoulder. “Just give it time. I believe them.” I was surprised by how tense he was. “Why had we never heard of them before?” He asked. “Because the Tower wanted to keep us in the dark, so that we would go out in search of them and join them.” He bowed his head, nodding slowly. I knew he had more questions, but the exhaustion I sensed earlier was beginning to wear on him, and he finally moved to go rest. However, before he disappeared out of view, I called after him. “Did you ever answer them?” He paused, but did not turn. I wondered if he was going to answer me. Finally, he gave a response, one that worried me. “Not yet."

Overall 10/10
Steelheart 9/10
Firefight 9/10
Calamity 9/10
As a huge fan of superheroes, I thought this series was fucking awesome! I love Brandon Sanderson and the worlds he builds, the characters that fill them always stay with me. Amazing world building, cool fights, memorable characters.
