Publisher's Summary

He’s an ex-superhero on a mission to save the world...and get hot chicks.

It’s the end of the 21st century, and Hunter McNeil is your average, ordinary, ex-Army Ranger with superpowers. He’s serving time unjustly in a Supermax for supervillains when a botched prison break puts him in the crosshairs of an Army general who runs the Super-Powered Combatants Corp. 

Turns out a coordinated strike has put supervillains in charge of every major city in the world, and Hunter is the United States’ only hope at restoring order. 

And so Hunter sets out to do what he does best: kill supervillains. Save the world. And build a harem of smokin’ hot, super-powered women to help him. 

Warning: This book contains violence, profanity, and mature content. It also contains a harem of hot women. You have been warned.

After the fight Hunter gets a Hawaii vacation

Hunter McNeil (formally code name Mr. Shield) is an ex-superhero, traitor to the U.S. government turned smuggler serving a 50-year sentence at Karkarin International Prison, the under water prison. He is just a year into his sentence with mass murderers, serial killers, terrorist, human traffickers, and other degenerates all with super-powers when there is a jail break. Karkarin was a mile underwater off the coast of nowhere; rumor to be Hawaii. This was not a prison break-out but a break-in. Some organization breached the walls of the prison flooding the prison while liberating some prisoners and killing many of the inmates. We never find out the name of the organization.

That is the start of the story. Action right off the back, which continues with interludes of sex, graphic sex. Come on he was a year in prison, and you did see the cover of the book.

Hunter is a smuggler, not a murderer. He has a code. That is why the U.S. Military Super-Powered Combatants Corps felt comfortable offering him an opportunity to earn his freedom while saving the world. The action continues with him combating all kinds of criminals with various powers. Tension is ratchet up because Hunter is not at full strength. As a prisoner he had to wear a collar, which suppress his powers. After a year of inactivity, Hunter becomes physically incapacitated when he uses his powers. Now he is going up against super criminals: Spike with thick skin as tough as Kevlar and regenerate abilities and Antimatter a warlord. He can psychokinetically contain antimatter and channel it.

The fights are in Tokyo and Japan, on land, sea, and air. Hunter was saddled with the inexperienced Nova (the cover girl) who can throw fire and the feisty Yuki who can phase through solids.

623 superpower individuals were assassinated in a coordinated attack. Supercriminals ruled the world. If the government retaliates the criminals will kill citizens. The government hired Hunter to retake the world. He’s a criminal and the government can claim plausible deniability. Enjoy the action.

better than I was expecting

this was actually a very good book, I found it to be quite interesting because the main character wasn't some overpowered guy, and it was pretty interesting how the author portrayed him

Super fun

This is an homage to the anti hero.
Where the main character doesnt like how the world actually works and tries to do something about it.
He did "bad" things for the good reasons and paid the price for it.
A solid 8/10

A fun bit of wish fulfilment.

The narrator elevated this fun trashy novel. He did struggle with Asian accents which is unfortunate for a novel set mostly in Tokyo.

Glad I gave this one a chance.

This audiobook was really good. I had given the Succubus series a try and didn't really take to it. The main character just didn't agree with me. HOWEVER, this story was really good. I liked the main characters. The story developed well. I want to hear more of this realm.

over all a good harem and superhero

So I have listened to a few harem books at this point. generally I find there either good or to much.
This book I'll happily say is good. the action is fast and fun. for those it may bother the sex scenes in this are very graphic.
The world building isn't to bad I think I can be improved on and developed further. I also am hoping the big bad of the series wont be what I think but we will see.

I am relieved that the main character hunter has a interesting power that is not something superman ish or another booster of some kind. well his power been seen in other fiction before I am not sure if as a main character and he uses it in flexible and creative ways.

over all In general I enjoyed the book. The only thing i hope is improved or added to different is the women. The two in this one are great dont get me wrong, they have there own personality ect. however both felt....lacking in combat as well as never really taking the lead. I know odd to complain about in a harem but now with some good books of this type under my belt. I have found the books are just as much about the women then the main character (or reverse in case of reverse harem).
I know nova is green when it comes to it so made sense for her and yukio street girl and did contribute easier but even still both lacked a bit.

It be weird if the suddenly improved but I'd like to seem them begin to OR the next girl be very skilled from the get go.

Rookie mistakes

Good story with lots of action and sex. Lead character isn't as smart as he believes. Hot chick actually does not die like in most novels.

Ehh....

Mr. Markam’s Succubus series is a lot better. The characters in the book are too shallow for my taste.

Funny and entertaining!

Fresh feeling brought to super villians! Outside the box powers and the charisma and comedy in some of the characters makes it really enjoyable!

Took me a second to get used to Hunters voice, but by the end the narrator's voice really suits the character!

Only bad thing was that it ended and there's not another 10 already out! Can't wait for more!
