But with godlike powers and a history of tragedy, will Hugo become a guardian of justice...or agent of chaos?

Could have been better

Well this book was okay, only. My biggest issue with this book was the fashion show every time a person entered. I'm talking EVERYTIME the protagonist saw someone it like listing to an announcer for a fashion show! It got very old, very fast. I did listen to the entire book and the 2nd one too. Only because it wrapped up a story line. I will not get the next books...

A great action hero saga!

This action packed hero book is set in the Central Coast, which is normally full of small towns and rural wine country living. In this world that C.C. Ekeke has skillfully created, it has transformed into a bustling metropolis, with its own super heroes to boot! I found this saga to be full of great character development, fun filled action scenes and it kept me looking forward to more!

something different from Marvel and DC

the story is engaging and something different from the classic superhero trope that is so popular in cinema these days all of the characters are flushed out and you can really put yourself in their shoes.

Can't wait for the next book!!!

Loved it! Never heard of this author but thought I would check him out because I'm into superhero type of stuff. I'm soooo glad I did. Great actions and I love the diversity of the characters. I'm hoping the next one comes out soon!

3 connected stories but should have focused on 1.

This audiobook consists of three stories, one of which covers a man learning to control his powers and deal with a father who disapproves of 'paragons' (super heroes/villains). In my opinion this is the most fleshed out story with a full and interesting arch. The second story covers a teenage loser gaining several strong super power mysteriously and attempts to master them in an attempt to become the heroes he's idolized. It's a coming of age/heroes journey kind of story but doesn't have a narrative arch, and really doesn't even feel fully fleshed out. The last book I'm actively apathetic toward, its a story about a normal human reporter trying to make her way in the world, dealing with drama in the workplace, and trying to snag the next big scoop. She ends up discovering that an idolized hero that was recently murdered may not have been murdered by his arch rival and former villain despite evidence to the contrary... and when she starts digging to deep someone wants her dead.

I just don't care, I don't care that a reporter has a hard time at work... i don't care about the color of her skin... i don't care that she's a woman and has issues because she's a woman.. Every time a new part of her story came on I audibly sighed because it essentially puts the breaks on the larger story for 30+ mins. The only good thing i can say is that her arch does reveal certain areas of depth in the universe... but jesus could it be done better through one of the other established characters.

Overall I feel like the author wrote 3 short stories in the same universe but should have focused on 1 and stuck to it, creating the other 2 at a later time as their own separate and complete stories instead of 1 relatively finished arch and 2 unfinished ones.

Good Start

As I read other reviews I see that of other of readers are upset because the author describes the ethnicity of the characters. I, for one, am refreshed to see this because in most of the books in in this genre there is mostly one race represented. This story acknowledges the rest of the American population and that is awesome in my opinion. The story is a good beginning to a bigger story. I am a big audiobook guy. With that being said I was slightly disappointed with the female voice actor. Also I really wish they would have taken advantage of having 3 narrators and read in the story as a production and not just having one narrator assigned read each protagonist chapters. The story itself is a good one. I am looking forward to the next installment.

Great opening for the Saga

This is a great opener for the Saga. The narration is on point and the narrators do an excellent job of defining the characters.

Promising series starter

If you like superhero stories, this is a great place to start. The story is entertaining and full of superheroes with a well-built and detailed background. The narration is top notch too.

Confusing

The cover is a little misleading.

To start the story has a lot of different character points, each directing into a different story of their own. And the layout is that If I get interested into the direction of one it splits into another.

A lot of drama instead of action is okay, there was only one combat scene in the entire book and I wouldn't say it was done incredibly well so it probably won't appeal to a lot of people who look for those types of books.

In another review someone mentioned SJW ideals were all over the book. Whilst I was confused why one of the MC's responded "because I'm black" out of nowhere I think the other characters response was normal for that situation, surprised and gobsmacked. Not that I even knew that the mc was black until very into the book maby because I was confused with all the other equally important MC's. There was also a mention of mansplaining once by a man. Personally I don't think we have the same terms for that thing.

Overall I think the story didnt accomplish what was needed (interesting developments). The one thing that interested me a lot was related to a car and some damage, the rest of the story in comparison felt like filler. All the different characters at once confused any single original character development felt muted at best. I could be wrong though, maby someone will enjoy this book. But after a long time of listening to it I've not developed any interest. I think another review got the cake on this one "Eh..."

Though I do wish you all a lovely day :D
