Publisher's Summary

Skye is the storm-tossed comic character out for revenge on the author who murdered his family.

Jace is the math-loving #blerd trying to escape his father's deadly legacy.

When their worlds collide, Jace must choose between the real world he's always hated and the comic book world he's always loved - and Skye must decide if killing his author will save his world or damn his soul.

Skye's a comic book superhero with a gun in his hand and a gripe against his author. Every girl Skye's ever dated is either dead or trying to take over the world, and in the series finale, Skye's best friend kills him. Or so he thinks. The weapon meant to disintegrate Skye lands him in his author's universe. With a shot at revenge.

Skye, meet Jace. Jacen Howard's a brilliant #blerd math whiz and comics aficionado - but at his West Baltimore high school, that's a bad thing, and if the bullying isn't bad enough, Jace's cop-father regularly pisses off the neighbors. Jace doesn't see himself as a hero; he's just trying to survive.

Jace might be just the hero Skye needs.

But Skye won't open up when Jace tries to ease him out of PTSD, and the author's still torturing his friends. As Skye's mood swings and nightmares escalate, Jace realizes that if he doesn't uncover his roommate's real identity soon, Skye will hurt someone - and Skye's still deciding if murder will save his world or damn his soul.

Fun and unique take on super heros comics and fate

I enjoy when breaking the 4th wall is done well. This book is written around breaking its own fourth wall of sorts. Especially as someone who has worked on writing a story and planning what happens to characters, which ones will live and which ones will die, it's interesting to think about how characters would respond given the chance to meet their authors.

There is plenty of super hero action. If you get the complete book it comes with several color pages of actual comic book art made just for this story. They are very well done and left me wishing there was more.

All in all a fun read that makes you think too.
