Publisher's Summary

The Shadowmaster is back... whether you wanted him to be or not!

Jackson Blackwell, The Shadowmaster, is in over his head this time. After his last adventure, where he tore fantasy novels a new one, Jackson has to deal with the repercussions of angry gods, angrier conspirators, and the wrath of his pregnant girlfriend!

(I know... actual consequences in a comedy/action series? How avant-garde! - I think. Okay look, I really don't know what that means. I've always just wanted to say it and I'm too lazy to look it up.)

Thanks to a godly decree and a crafty clause, Jackson has been banished from his home. And the only universe kindly enough to take him in is one infested with comic-book-style superheroes and supervillains. A perfect place to cause mayhem, right? Well, it wouldn't be much of a book if it were.

Comics don't play by the rules, and Jackson has been tasked to do something unique. Whatever is a villain to do?

Follow the adventure of Jackson Blackwell as he attempts to manipulate his way back to the top while dealing with all manner of dark detectives, godly aliens, expensive power suits, and the most daunting challenge of all... looming parenthood.

laughed myself into tears

the second installment of the Shadow Master is as hilarious and formulaic as the first. people who gave the first book five stars really like the author and were in no way paid off. this book is the example of the overall quality of independent writing. As someone who consumes over 300 doughnuts a year, my eye for excellence is sharp and this story if you can call it that delivers on every fundamental level delivering character development and depth while going for cheap jokes causing laughter all through the Meandering plot the book consists of scene set up all about one amazing joke after another and repeated for over 40 chapters. the protagonist a villain named Jackson is little more than an antihero and clearly the authors wish fulfillment put to paper the entire book feels like an excuse for the author to put to page the thoughts that I have in my mind everyday think of it as a published work of comical art but with more stupidity and laughter full of edginess and a lot of sounding cool. while I appreciated the laughs provided there is little else to really enjoy in this book except the two dimensional characters repeated scenes and blatant rip off of archetypes. in summation unless you're a fan of the insipid vapid brain candy that is Indie books these days defiantly buy this book for a plane ride, a long drive and don't wait till it's on sale... the ending is brilliantly hilarious, I must have looked quite ridiculous rolling down the interstate laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes..
oh yeah and the narrator does an amazing job of conveying the humor and different characters... including himself 😉

Smart, witty and fun

Can't say enough good. The villain in this book is awesome. He goes off into rants that are not only funny, but absolutely true. His schemes are convoluted, his humor is twisted. I CAN'T wait for the next book in this series.

I love this book. so much.

I love 4th wall breaking. no not breaking let me say it as is, 4th wall obliteration. Especialy at the end. the first book was good this one was fun read and great story. I enjoyed the way it points out flaws in other franchises as well as their good points. I can't wait to read next book. There better be another one I don't want to see Sophia win in such a cheap way, and that comment wasnt even that good of a burn.

laugh out loud fun

just get the book, you won't regret it and if you do most likely the protagonist describes you quite well in the book.
