Everyone wants justice.
That's what Assistant DA Lulu Lightly tells me. "Cathedral City needs you to set things right," she says. "To rid this place of corruption, once and for all."
I'd like to rid Lulu Lightly of her clothes. And maybe her moral superiority. But mostly her clothes.
"I want you to fight the good fight with me," she says.
Hell, yeah. I'm always up for a fight.
"We should stand up and be the voice of the people," she says.
Sure, I hear voices. Sometimes I even listen to them.
"Figure out what's good for the City and put it first," she says.
Oh, honey...what's good for the City is bad for the people. Trust me, I know. I'm Case Reider - insane Alpha, nefarious inventor, and I understand this town better than anyone.
Cathedral City needs me all right. Just not the way you think. I'm not the justice you're looking for, Lulu Lightly. I'm still the same villain you left behind.
Only now...there's something very, very wrong with me.
Ironman's got Pepper Potts.. Superman's got Lois Lane.. Lincoln Wade (from book 1) has Molly Masters and now, in this second book from Cathedral City, Case Reider has Lulu Lightly. JA Huss totally manages to capture the 'comic book' action hero vibe really well with this unique new story that was well narrated as Case secretly battles what's been happening inside him and changing him. It was after he got injured in the Alpha's rooftop fight with the Blue Corp and the Blue Boar that ended the previous book. Lulu and Case have history together and, from the moment they meet again, that history will be repeated as they become lovers again.. but both are holding back secrets.. and very different agendas.
Lulu Lightly is Assistant D.A. and Case, along with Lincoln and Thomas, are number one suspects for the $millions that have been hacked and stolen from Cathedral City's Banks - but shush.. because the three Super-Alphas are innocent and they're desperately looking for answers too. However, before anyone can gather the evidence and point a finger, everything goes to Hell.. because whatever's been subtly and secretively changing Cole has finally finished.. his transformation is complete.. and it's epic.. with epic drama-filled consequences.
I enjoyed this entertaining listen and JA Huss' unpredictable dual POV plot, masterful world-building and creative imagery is awesome - she's succeeded at capturing the Gotham City feel with one of its super/anti-heroes being used and ultimately falling victim to the faceless super-villain. It was fast paced - with sex, building tension, danger, suspense, romance, nanobots, super-computer hologram Assistants and deadly drama. There's the underlying continuation of the Alpha's revenge plans for Prodigy - the corrupt powerful organisation who stole, bought and bred children like them to be brainwashed, changed and used. In the next book Thomas will meet his heroine Sadie Scott - and let's hope they get revenge and dish out justice.. Super-Alpha style.
Worth a credit? If you like a fantastical super-hero type listen then you'll surely love this - sadly, I can't say I loved every minute of it - and that's not a criticism of the book in any way shape or form because it WAS good. Maybe it's just because my own personal tastes have changed a bit.. nevertheless, I still think YES, it's definitely creditworthy.

Lulu and Case...oh a love/hate romance...in this one..the city is being attacked and is in dire need of rescue...Something happened to Case and now he has a strange force driving him...that only pain relieves...all the Alphas must work together to save him..and ulu is torn to which side is right..or wrong!!

Sheila is supposed to be this crazy super computer but I haven't caught a glimpse of it in either book. So far she's a glorified mechanic, a stylist, a pilot, a surgeon & a meddling mom. The only thing original is the meddling mom part... There's a drone on her house & she has no clue. For a super computer she's pretty lame.
Yep...I loved the second in the series more than the first! I didn't think I'd be into this genre (superhero-ish)...but I am loving this series! The way Julie's mind works fascinates me...how does she come up with this stuff! It's so good - this book was packed with action, romance, drama, "hot" bodies, explosions...and so much more! I loved it!
Ava and Tad were awesome - I especially love Tad as a narrator! Wonderful job of bringing Case and Lulu to life!
Can't wait to hear Thomas' story! Thanks Julie!
Read first and absolutely loved this book/series.
The narrators did a brilliant job, they draw you in and make you feel like you’re part of this world.
J.A. Huss most certainly knows how to write any gender.
I have been a fan of J.A. Huss for a while but series is one of the best it keeps you hooked! Must listen book but start with 1st to know how each builds on the next.... OUTSTANDING Ms. Huss 💋
BOOK TWO OF THE ANARCHY SERIES , JUST AS FANTASTIC,DRAMATIC AND FANTABULOUS STORYLINE AS THE FIRST BOOK, THIS IS OUTA THIS WORLD !! A MUST LISTEN !!
NARRATION WAS TOTALLY REMARKABLE!! HOW COULD IT NOT BE ,WITH SUCH ACCOMPLISH, PHENOMENAL NARRATORS !
BROVO AVA ERICKSON AND SEXY VOICE OF TAD BRANSON !💖💖💖 ESPECIALLY THE LAST CHAPTERS..A LOT OF SUSPENCE AND DRAMA UNFOLDS, THAT WILL HAVE YOU HANGING ON TO TAD'S EVERY WORDS!
THESE TWO BROUGHT EVERY BRILLIANT WORD OF MS. HUSS'S BOOK TO LIFE! AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR A EXTRAORDINARY STORY !!
THREE ALPHA FRIENDS OUT TO SAVE THEIR TOWN FROM EVIL WITHIN ! 75 MILLION STOLEN FROM EVERYONE. BUT ONE PERSON?
WHO IS TAKING OVER THE TOWN'S RESOURCES AND THE TOWN'S POPULATION??
A TRUE ORIGINAL MYSTERY UNFOLDS !
DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY AND DEFFINLEY WORTH YOUR CREDIT OR BUY IT !!
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED , NOTHING BY JA HUSS WILL EVER MAKE YOU DISSATISFIED !
THIS IS A BONA FIDE AND HONEST REVIEW!!
Hmmm, I'm not sure if I'm going to continue this series; it may be too far fetched for my taste. I mean, a whole city is taken over, the population has been drugged and there is mass destruction and loss of life and , somehow, the Federal Government hasn't noticed any of this.
I really wish there was the EOBS so I knew what Julie was thinking, when she wrote this. I know it may seem hypocritical for me to think this series is too out there but I can totally get in to Paranormal stories, but I cAn.
In addition, the male narrator wasn't near As good As Sebastian York. I m so dissapointed that there is a JA Huss series that I don't like.
