Overall it was an interesting sci-fi story. While it is not one of the books that gripped me and didn't let me go, there was never a time when it felt like work to read. Solid characters, and an interesting background.
I had seen this book a few times and always passed it by then during a sale i figured why not. I now wish I'd gotten it sooner . It was well written and preforemed and funby and i cant wait to get to the next part
I was worried that this was going to be a mistake, but the mistake would have been not getting it. This is a great book. Everything about it. Not one bad thing to say. I have been getting into the super hero stuff heavily recently. Kid Sensation, Super Powereds, etc. This one was darker for sure, but written and thought out to its fullest. Stop reading this review and get the book. Seriously, stop.
It is not the sort of book I could get into and though some scenarios were well described it was totally boring and predictable as far as I got. Usually I manage to finish any book but after 4 attempts over the years have to admit defeat. Mind you maybe others will enjoy and appreciate this formulaic novel.
Unfortunately for me it was a wasted credit.
I thought it was fun and easy story. Felt like i was listening to a play
St. George- he was pretty cool
The end was amazing
but mix it with super heroes and you've got a total winner!
Great variety of hero types including a Batman-alike, a Superman-alike (albeit human origin), a mecha, etc and powers continue past death so all's fair in survival and beheading! Pleasant blend of view points from regular humans and nice contrast and back story provided by occasional ”then” chapters.
My only complaint was no hint about power origins which frustrated me a bit but hopefully that's saved for one of the sequels.
Just bought book 2 so 'nuff said ;-)
I love the storyline and the mixing of genres, from superheroes to horror and maybe urban fantasy... Incredible. However, I don't understand how this book is rated so high when I couldn't seem to empathize with a single character in any meaningful way. Any character, at any point, could have been killed and I couldn't have cared less. I didn't connect with any of them, so I certainly won't be reading any more of these.
