With the first of what he suspects will be many favors completed, William finds himself busy with important tasks back at his home on Saladin. Queen Rachel has several jobs she needs him to do, and Feliogustus has similar tasks in mind for him as well. All in all, it seems easy enough to Will, it's not like he'll be fighting in any wars, or traveling across the infinite on a strange quest after all.

Kim Lam is an ordinary college student until a freak scientific accident (what else?) transforms Kim and three housemates into Sparks - and drafts them into the never-ending war between the Light and Dark. They struggle to master their new abilities - and (of course) to design cool costumes and come up with great hero-names. Turns out that "accident" was just the first salvo in a Mad Genius's latest diabolical scheme. Now it's up to four newbie heroes to save the day, before they even have a chance to figure out what their team's name should be!

I like a lot of the book but my main problem with it is that one of the focal points for character is that she's queer and they keep toting it in our faces keep this out of a book I'm not homophobic or anything irritating that's one of the main focal points of the character not her personality not the special thing about her that she's queer and they always make it a form of discrimination they don't really add anything to it and I think it kills her character I'm not saying don't buy the book I still think it's really good it's just it's an irritating thing that quite annoying and it's one of the main problems I have with this book is still good so I recommend you buy it's just you know a problem I have with it but it's not like anybody's reading this after all this is super long so you know YOLO kill yourself Etc

Magic pieces of armor rain from Lenova's skies, granting men God-like powers. Mountains move, lightning bends to command, and a man's future can be written in a book before it's even happened. In this emerging chaos, teenage Finn SunRider cares only for escaping the burning desert of the Crust and exploring the world he lives in. Yet that will prove quite difficult with monsters and tyrants roaming the land, conquering cities and killing the innocent.

Jackson Blackwell, The Shadowmaster, is in over his head this time. After his last adventure, where he tore fantasy novels a new one, Jackson has to deal with the repercussions of angry gods, angrier conspirators, and the wrath of his pregnant girlfriend! Thanks to a godly decree and a crafty clause, Jackson has been banished from his home. And the only universe kindly enough to take him in is one infested with comic-book-style superheroes and supervillains.

I thought the second one wasn't going to be as good as the first one but boy am glad I was wrong. the story was so good that I didn't even realize that the book was over before it went to the credits this book was truly as good as the first one in every way you can even better in some conditions I would give 5 out of 5 for both books in every category
