Publisher's Summary

Merciless, the Supervillain without Mercy (TM), is back with even bigger problems! How far will he go to fix his wife's current state of being a soulless vampire? Can he ignore his growing feelings for Cindy, despite their difference over the new Star Wars movie? Can he survive the wrath of the president of the United States (whom he accidentally stole billions from)?

While he ponders those personal issues, Death has a new mission for him. The greatest hero on Earth has killed, and she isn't pleased. Death wants the murder solved and the perpetrator given the kind of justice only the Avatar of Death can dish out. Unfortunately for Gary, that's only the tip of the psychotic iceberg.

    Story
    "The story was ok but overall it was outstanding."

    This still feels like a dark comedy of a Jack Kirby comic. I love it. All of the rich backgrounds, the characters, the conflicts of being villains vs being good, and it's just still has that nice make it work magic. Now to be fair, had I not heard the first two audio books, I'm not sure I would have liked this one as much. Story wise, this one is fairly average but the narration production and enjoying the characters in action again is what made the fun still sink in.

    If you enjoyed the first two, I recommend this one as well.

    "good romp with a weak cliffhanger"

    narration's good story is the standard romp and pomp of realistic supers. but the ending comes off as a word count goal line crossing.

    "Good for the series, meh stand alone."

    Still a great story in the series, but this one felt like it ended in the middle and felt rushed at the end.

    "These are great stories"

    I am really enjoying this series. It is an unabashed not to comic nerdidity and very well done.
    if you enjoy comic books and sarcasm then grab these and listen it read them.

    "Fun story continued"

    I enjoyed this story as I have the others in the series. I like the writing style, comedy and story line. The juxtaposition of characters with their internal drives never fails to make me chuckle. In the end this is a story line that I impatiently wait for the next installment.

    "Fun but getting a little repetitive"

    I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. This one was enjoyable but not up to the quality of the other stories. Gary is starting to feel a bit flat.

    "A Winner!"

    The story and narration go together like cheese and crackers. Both perfect and fun! I love this series. Great on point humor. I laughed and enjoyed this performance right to to the end.

    Story
    "Defining what it is to be an Anti-Villain!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Secrets of Supervillainy the most enjoyable?

    On top of an expertly created cast of characters and well written dialogue, Jeffery Kafer has brought them to life in this third installment of the Supervillainy saga. Beyond just a reading of a book, the emotions of each of the characters were felt as the story unfolded.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story continued quite smoothly from the previous novel and suddenly leap from ordinary to extraordinary levels of complexity and mystery as Gary worked towards his goal of regaining his wife Mandy and solving a murder. In the spirit of comic books and the complexity of realistic (as you can be in a world with superheroes) interactions with real people, C. T. Phipps and Jeffery Kafer have proven they are a faultless combination.


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Because Jeffery has taken the time to get to know the characters and this being the third book of the series, he has owned the Supervillainy Saga almost as much as Mr. Phipps. As I mentioned before, Mr. Kafer IS Gary Karkofsky!

    As funny as it sounds, he IS also Cloak (Lancel Warren), Diabloman, Cindy and the entire cast of the series! If someone else were to pick up the series, it wouldn't be the same.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several moments in the book that unexpectedly moved me. The first time was when the announcement of who was murdered was a shock and when Death herself gave Gary a choice of life and death for someone close to him. It was even more surprising about the cliff-hanger at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The Phipps/Kafer combo works perfectly. Support of this team should encouraged and supported. All fans of the Supervillainy saga should enjoy the Esoterrorism series and the upcoming Wraith Knight series by C.T. Phipps and read by Jeffery Kafer.

    "Solid Continuation"

    Gary is back and he's still confused (what else is new). But watching Merciless, the evil supervillain without mercy, slowly find his way as an antihero/hero is still fun and entertaining.

    More banter, geeky pop culture references, and seeing where this odd love triangle... (square?) go is worth it.

    "to be continued, oh come on"

    excellent storytelling, fun and witty, but when I was just getting into the story it didn't finished and had to be continued.
    I just hate it when that happens which means I have to wait until the next book comes out.

    Story
    "Seemed off."

    Spoiler alert. The first two books set things different to what was delivered, perhaps something changed in the authors life, but a readjustment in the protagonists love life was the result. It made the whole story just seem like I had missed something. The story itself I wasn't sure if there was any movement either, it was packed full of pop culture references from the last two years, but over all it just felt off. Wrong in a morbid way, it literally went from book one. I love mandy, I still love ultra goddess to book two re confirming this, and even mandy and ultra goddess to accepting one another to book three I love mandy, I hate the mandy that I have and I love Cindy. Ultra goddess is okay I suppose.

    I know its not painted to be a great love story, but in a world where super powers exist you at least want to believe that love was there. Sadly it was missing.

    I will buy and read the next installment, just in the hopes that phipps recovers what's left. Lets not talk about the other character progress, powers developed and story as it was explained like a kids explanation of why they thought filling a swimming pool with petrol and having a firework party was a good idea.
