What a clever story! Superheroes battling on reality TV in a Survivor like show? Yes please! (And why didn’t I think of that?)
What was your favorite part of the story? For me, it was the premise. I also got a kick out of the youth group leader, and props to the author for the way he wove in spiritual content.
Who was your favorite super hero? It’s hard not to like Failstate, because you have empathy for him as a reader and he really earns his big finish at the end. Give me smarts over power any day, but both are nice as well. 😉
*BUT* I really liked Luxe and her light powers. (What can I say? I program lights for our church. I’m a lighting fanatic).
What would you have done differently if it had been your story? Or something you would have liked to have seen that didn’t happen?
For me, I thought that Failstate’s face got wrecked because his power went out of control and created a blast that killed his dad and burned him. I was disappointed with the real reason his father died. Then that led me to wonder why his mother seemed to hate him so much.
My burning question – who gave him that stone that he wears around his neck?
Any plans to read the next two in the series?
There are two full length sequels (I have both). Looking forward to these, even if Legends is a zombie book (ugh – not a fan of zombie fiction).
And two novellas (I have both). I’ll read these, but I prefer full-length stories to short extras. What about you?
YOUR TURN: Answer the questions above, and tell me what you would select as a superpower. (I’d like to breathe underwater indefinitely. Anyone remember The Man from Atlantis?)
