Almost two years since the Uprising, the world has drastically changed. Sophia has taken up the mantle of the world's champion superhero, Freedom. However due to her cryptic message to the United Nations the world is divided in regards to her role in it. To some, she is a beacon of hope, while others see her as a new global threat they must find a way to deal with. The aftermath of Peace's attempted takeover of the planet has given rise to superhuman boosting and genetic hate groups.

Love this series. Kipjo is amazing and, somehow, each addition is equal to and better than the former. Ending left me standing on my feet, hair raised on my neck, tears in my eyes, with a smile on my face....

A larval Great Old One is growing day by day in power and just about ready to pop. If Chad Gadenier can't convince "the powers that be" to get involved, not only New Orleans, but the entire world, is going to fall under the power of the nastiest of nasties. Now on the outs with the US government and in exile from his usual job of saving the world, Chad must rally the forces of light against the coming darkness. The problem is one guy with a sword and a sub-gun isn't going to solve this one.

In a world full of super powers, Felix had a pretty crappy one. After learning to harness his ability to modify any item he owns, he now runs a corporation that is rapidly expanding - Legion. After tangling with the local Heroes guild they’ve finally settled into a semblance of stability. Sounds great on paper. Run your company, make money, be your own boss, settle down. Except that with running a business, comes an inordinate amount of responsibilities. Like making sure everything keeps running and your people are paid.

1. Literary style is the best. The interplay of drama and action is at the peak of perfection; not too much or too little of either. Perfect! Benedict Jacka is a master literary artist of climatic build up and denouement that leaves the reader captivated and salivating for more! HURRY UP!! PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME WAIT THIS LONG AGAIN FOR THE NEXT!!!
2. GILDART JACKSON! Plz do not make the mistake of replacing this narrator (like what commonly takes place in the middle of many series I read). He is amazing! Not just technique, but inflection, pauses, speed ups, slow down...ect. Love him!! He is probably the reason I am so hooked on this series. He is my favorite narrator!
3. Verus and ANNE!!!! What a twist with Anne! Caldera and Rachel...both "sculpting" Verus... Two different types of mages saying the same thing about Verus. Makes you introspect if the way you see yourself is actually true. Sometimes others see you better than you see yourself. Who better to skew the lens of self-reflection...than self!! Beautiful. HURRY PLZ!!!

For John Charming, living the dream just became a nightmare. Someone, somewhere, is reading a magic book that is reading them right back. Real life is becoming a fairytale: high school students are turning, quite literally, into zombies, subway workers into dwarves, drug addicts into vampires. John Charming and his motley band of monster hunters are racing to find the villain of this story, following the yellow brick road through a not so wonderful wonderland. And if they can't find Reader Zero before the book is closed, there won't be a happily ever after again.

Conor Night, the world's only necromancer, has finally learned what it means to be the world's only necromancer. It’s a lesson he wishes he had never received, because thanks to him an ancient wizard with an apocalyptic agenda is back in business, ready to finish cleaning house. Even worse? He’s the only one who can stop it. He’s been living on a roll of the dice for years, but the stakes have never been higher, and the outcome never so clear: To save the world, he has to die.

The ancient pact between mankind, Heaven, and Hell has been broken. And this upstart wizard's quest for vengeance may have just kicked off Armageddon. So, time for a drink...or maybe two. Already plagued with sinister night terrors that could qualify him as a card-carrying psychopathic insomniac, Nate can barely even manage to put his pants on in the morning, let alone pick teams for the Apocalypse.

Conor Night, the world's only necromancer, is starting to think that his life is finally coming together. His last job not only left him funded, but also helped him fall off the radar of the world's two most powerful wizards. Of course, being a necromancer always has its downsides, and when he's forced into a job that will leave the Houses on the brink of all-out war, he begins to realize just how down those sides can be. He thinks he understands the rules in the world of ghosts and magic. Unfortunately for him, the rules are about to change.

Alex Verus is still haunted by his time apprenticed to Richard Drakh. He's been free of him for many years, but now the only way to keep his friends from being harmed is to again work for Richard and his deadly ally. Even worse, he's forced to bring the Light mage Anne into this servitude as well. After weeks of being hunted and finally cornered into what he thought was his last stand, Alex never thought his life would be spared - and never anticipated at what price. This time, the diviner can see no way out.
