Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author James Alan Gardner returns to the superheroic fantasy world of All Those Explosions Were Someone Else's Fault with They Promised Me The Gun Wasn't Loaded.  

Only days have passed since a freak accident granted four college students superhuman powers. Now Jools and her friends (who haven’t even picked out a name for their superhero team yet) get caught up in the hunt for a Mad Genius’ misplaced superweapon.  

But when Jools falls in with a modern-day Robin Hood and his band of superpowered Merry Men, she finds it hard to sort out the Good Guys from the Bad Guys - and to figure out which side she truly belongs on.  

Especially since nobody knows exactly what the Gun does....

thoroughly enjoyable

I enjoyed this book quite a lot. it was a superhero book but not extreme on the action. it was much heavier on the main character is internal monologue that on any external dialogue.

If I found any faults with it it is a little bit preachy.

The moderator does an excellent job.

A great second installment, with superb narration.

Fantastic Narration, really brought the characters to life. A great follow up to the first book, looking forward to the next installment.
