Publisher's Summary

Eighteen-year-old Aidan Salt isn't a superhero. With his powerful (and unpredictable) telekinetic abilities, he could be one if he wanted to, but he doesn't. He's unambitious, selfish, and cowardly, and he doesn't want to have to deal with all the paperwork required to become a professional superhero. But since the money, fame, and women that come with wearing the cape are appealing, he decides to become the first supervillain the world has seen in more than 20 years: Apex Strike.

However, he soon finds villainy in a world where the heroes have long since defeated all the supervillains. While half the world's heroes seem to want him dead, the other half want to hire him as their own personal villain to keep them relevant. Choosing the latter course, Aidan enters a world of fame, fortune, and staged superhero fights that is seemingly everything he ever dreamed of...at least until he sees what truly hides behind the cape-and-mask lifestyle.

Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for listeners interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times best seller, a national best seller, or a Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality books from a diverse group of authors.

    "Review from Listener"

    I loved the ending story but in the middle with just straight sex and drugs was really stupid and not fun to listen to. But I have to say overall it's a good book.

    "Good storyline; needs polish"

    I liked the story and character development. The ideas here show a lot of promise. Wish the author didn't think he needed to include the word "hashtag" every 10 minutes, nor use vulgarities for no apparent reason. I think he was trying to connect with his 16-25 audience, but it was distracting in an otherwise decent story.

    "Good guys are bad & bad guys are sorta good"
    Any additional comments?

    Pretty good story with a really good narrator. The main character could have been just a little smarter, maybe not so 13ish about females. Other than the main character the story was good and this was a good listen.
