Publisher's Summary

Does power truly corrupt? Or attract the already corrupted?

Three months since his debut, Aegis, aka Hugo Malalou, is becoming one of America’s most popular superheroes. But between protecting the city of San Miguel, surviving high school and maintaining some degree of a social life - he’s stretched very thin.

Worse, monstrous new threats and old enemies attack Aegis from all corners. Can he rise to the challenge? Or will the Shield of Justice be broken?

On the other side of the country, Greyson Hirsch remains committed to destroying this new generation of heroes. And his latest target, a young team of idealistic crusaders, is blind to the storm hurtling their way. All the while, Greyson’s obsession with a certain superhero from San Miguel deepens.

Aegis and Greyson’s paths are on a collision course that will alter the fate of the world. Choose your side....

This novel contains swear words, sea monsters, and nail-biting superhero action.

Good story and great pacing throughout

If you’ve made it this far into the series, you’ll surely enjoy this book. Although a bit juvenile at times, pacing is very good and the characters are continuing to grow. If you like this genre, you’ll enjoy this series

Awesome and Awful Simultaneously

This book really highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the series. The overall story and worldbuilding itself is fantastic. The actual writing is at times awful. The narration is all over the place, and as usual the female narrator is just cringeworthy.

The most aggravating example of poor writing that kept knocking me out of the flow: The author seems to think that -kinetic as a suffix means "master of." He refers to types of powers with that suffix when he clearly means -mancer.

The narration is all over the place, including a few chapters where the wrong narrator is reading the POV chapters. It's also like there is absolutely no coordination among the different narrators on what each character sounds like, how different words are pronounced, etc. It really seems like they all just phone in their different parts with no sort of direction or production.

But I'm this far in simply because as bad a writer as the author is, he has a great story in there and he knows how to build a world. His characters may be interchangeable cutouts, but there is a decent plot with a few good twists among all the cliches. If he had a competent editor or two, this series might be really something.
