Publisher's Summary

Every hero has a beginning. So does every villain.

Titan, the world’s greatest superhero, has been murdered by his longtime archenemy Lord Borealis. And from the ashes rises a new generation.

Gifted with powers on the night of Titan’s death, 15-year-old Hugo awakes to the strange world of superheroes. A world he isn’t prepared for.

But with godlike powers and a history of tragedy, will Hugo become a guardian of justice...or agent of chaos?

Warning: Contains moderate swearing and big damn superhero action. If you’re not a fan of moderate swearing or big damn superhero action, this book might not be for you.

Could have been better

Well this book was okay, only. My biggest issue with this book was the fashion show every time a person entered. I'm talking EVERYTIME the protagonist saw someone it like listing to an announcer for a fashion show! It got very old, very fast. I did listen to the entire book and the 2nd one too. Only because it wrapped up a story line. I will not get the next books...

A great action hero saga!

This action packed hero book is set in the Central Coast, which is normally full of small towns and rural wine country living. In this world that C.C. Ekeke has skillfully created, it has transformed into a bustling metropolis, with its own super heroes to boot! I found this saga to be full of great character development, fun filled action scenes and it kept me looking forward to more!

Can't wait for the next book!!!

Loved it! Never heard of this author but thought I would check him out because I'm into superhero type of stuff. I'm soooo glad I did. Great actions and I love the diversity of the characters. I'm hoping the next one comes out soon!

Great opening for the Saga

This is a great opener for the Saga. The narration is on point and the narrators do an excellent job of defining the characters.

Good Start

As I read other reviews I see that of other of readers are upset because the author describes the ethnicity of the characters. I, for one, am refreshed to see this because in most of the books in in this genre there is mostly one race represented. This story acknowledges the rest of the American population and that is awesome in my opinion. The story is a good beginning to a bigger story. I am a big audiobook guy. With that being said I was slightly disappointed with the female voice actor. Also I really wish they would have taken advantage of having 3 narrators and read in the story as a production and not just having one narrator assigned read each protagonist chapters. The story itself is a good one. I am looking forward to the next installment.

something different from Marvel and DC

the story is engaging and something different from the classic superhero trope that is so popular in cinema these days all of the characters are flushed out and you can really put yourself in their shoes.

just bad and a disappointment

I'm not a person who writes reviews I just rate and move on. But this one idk there is potential but there is just to much sjw pandering. One line to sum that up is "semi auto burst" in the prologue. Also the way the female narrator speaks is horrible.

three storys one book but why together

so i liked the book but i have some issues. i uderstand that the storys are trying to show difrent view ponts in the world. but stoys are onley conected by the fact that thay are in the same world. as the three storys fallow difrent people and have no real interactions between them it is hard swaping back and foreth between main characters almost every chapter. it also chooses to do it at very poor times. driving me at some points the skip ahead chapters and then go back see what happened with other character. for example there are a couple times when you are in the middle of a fight and decides to go on two different main character. before it finally gets back to the character that's in a fight. I can't understand that in this scenario where are the other characters might have some effect on the outcome of the fighting or being involved in some way but it's just a completely different thing that they're doing that could take place before or after a daring and there's nothing that really tells you that it is happening at the same time. they also have three very different stories that would each be good on their own but do not complement each other in any way. and almost felt like reading three different books at the same time. as you can freely switch between the characters storylines without learning anything really would affect others. I'll give the Nextbook a shot but if it doesn't get better I probably will not continue book series.

Confusing

The cover is a little misleading. To start the story has a lot of different character points, each directing into a different story of their own. And the layout is that If I get interested into the direction of one it splits into another. A lot of drama instead of action is okay, there was only one combat scene in the entire book and I wouldn't say it was done incredibly well so it probably won't appeal to a lot of people who look for those types of books. In another review someone mentioned SJW ideals were all over the book. Whilst I was confused why one of the MC's responded "because I'm black" out of nowhere I think the other characters response was normal for that situation, surprised and gobsmacked. Not that I even knew that the mc was black until very into the book maby because I was confused with all the other equally important MC's. There was also a mention of mansplaining once by a man. Personally I don't think we have the same terms for that thing. Overall I think the story didnt accomplish what was needed (interesting developments). The one thing that interested me a lot was related to a car and some damage, the rest of the story in comparison felt like filler. All the different characters at once confused any single original character development felt muted at best. I could be wrong though, maby someone will enjoy this book. But after a long time of listening to it I've not developed any interest. I think another review got the cake on this one "Eh..." Though I do wish you all a lovely day :D
