Merciless, the Supervillain without Mercy (TM), is back with even bigger problems! How far will he go to fix his wife's current state of being a soulless vampire? Can he ignore his growing feelings for Cindy, despite their difference over the new Star Wars movie? Can he survive the wrath of the president of the United States (whom he accidentally stole billions from)?
While he ponders those personal issues, Death has a new mission for him. The greatest hero on Earth has killed, and she isn't pleased. Death wants the murder solved and the perpetrator given the kind of justice only the Avatar of Death can dish out. Unfortunately for Gary, that's only the tip of the psychotic iceberg.

I love this series and the book didn't disappoint. It has more references to pop culture, very funny scenes and more. It also have one more cool thing which is probably would a spoiler if you haven't read this book.
Enjoyed every minute of the book and listened in almost one go.
"The story was ok but overall it was outstanding."
This still feels like a dark comedy of a Jack Kirby comic. I love it. All of the rich backgrounds, the characters, the conflicts of being villains vs being good, and it's just still has that nice make it work magic. Now to be fair, had I not heard the first two audio books, I'm not sure I would have liked this one as much. Story wise, this one is fairly average but the narration production and enjoying the characters in action again is what made the fun still sink in.
If you enjoyed the first two, I recommend this one as well.
"good romp with a weak cliffhanger"
narration's good story is the standard romp and pomp of realistic supers. but the ending comes off as a word count goal line crossing.
"Good for the series, meh stand alone."
Still a great story in the series, but this one felt like it ended in the middle and felt rushed at the end.
"These are great stories"
I am really enjoying this series. It is an unabashed not to comic nerdidity and very well done.
if you enjoy comic books and sarcasm then grab these and listen it read them.
"Fun story continued"
I enjoyed this story as I have the others in the series. I like the writing style, comedy and story line. The juxtaposition of characters with their internal drives never fails to make me chuckle. In the end this is a story line that I impatiently wait for the next installment.
"Fun but getting a little repetitive"
I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. This one was enjoyable but not up to the quality of the other stories. Gary is starting to feel a bit flat.
The story and narration go together like cheese and crackers. Both perfect and fun! I love this series. Great on point humor. I laughed and enjoyed this performance right to to the end.
"A great addition to a phenomenal series"
Great performance of a highly entertaining book. flew by way too fast though! Can't wait for the next one.
I laughed and cried. A great sequel to the original. It will have you hungry for book 3.
"Fast paced and fun"
If your going to listen to this, then you have most likely read the previous books too.
It's the same as the others but the story develops more. I like these books because they are light hearted, are fast paced, and have a decent story to them. Also I like super hero books.
"to be continued, oh come on"
excellent storytelling, fun and witty, but when I was just getting into the story it didn't finished and had to be continued.
I just hate it when that happens which means I have to wait until the next book comes out.
"better than meh"
Although I am enjoying this series, the characters are great and the previous stories have been great, this one seemed a bit ...thin.
Spoiler alert. The first two books set things different to what was delivered, perhaps something changed in the authors life, but a readjustment in the protagonists love life was the result. It made the whole story just seem like I had missed something. The story itself I wasn't sure if there was any movement either, it was packed full of pop culture references from the last two years, but over all it just felt off. Wrong in a morbid way, it literally went from book one. I love mandy, I still love ultra goddess to book two re confirming this, and even mandy and ultra goddess to accepting one another to book three I love mandy, I hate the mandy that I have and I love Cindy. Ultra goddess is okay I suppose.
I know its not painted to be a great love story, but in a world where super powers exist you at least want to believe that love was there. Sadly it was missing.
I will buy and read the next installment, just in the hopes that phipps recovers what's left. Lets not talk about the other character progress, powers developed and story as it was explained like a kids explanation of why they thought filling a swimming pool with petrol and having a firework party was a good idea.
"weakest of the 3"
mildly entertaining but fizzled out towards the end - not sure I'd bother with the next installment
