We had a good time talking about Steelheart.  Three or four of us had already read Firefight, but that wasn’t a big issue, since we were able to focus on the first book and how it was written.  Pretty much everyone agreed that the analogies were terrible, the point of view was frustrating, and the character was way too lucky.  We are also used to Sanderson world building a bit more at the start instead of keeping large parts of the lore secret.  I do appreciate the slow reveals that have been going on over the course of the books, but it does get frustrating.  We all talked about what powers we would have and how we would use them.  The people who had read Firefight were able to talk about the weaknesses they would have, but nothing too specific or we would have revealed it to the others.
