Publisher's Summary

A superpowered colony falling to corruption. The fate of millions at stake.

Out on his own as a surveyor, Major Corbin sleeps under the stars and calls his own shots. As a one-man operation without powers on a space colony with power-abusing supers, this is the life. 

Nothing lasts forever. 

The chance discovery of a mysterious substance changes everything when he gains superpowers and learns that it’s the key to saving the colony from an evil that nobody but he knows is coming. 

The kicker? Gaining powers means waking an ancient being that might be the difference between saving the universe or dying in the process.

If you love science fiction with the added awesomeness of superpowers, you’ll enjoy Supers: Rise Up.

Excellent

a little bit scifi space adventure, with a dash of Ironman, throw in a little bit of The Boys (comic/ TV series) and a great story with some brutal fights. And you are just getting started in this series. Lots of fun, with memorable characters, and of course RC Bray Knocks it out of the park into a whole new galaxy as usual!

The MC is a Mary Sue

Don't get me wrong, this book isn't bad by any means, but there are some rather large issues, in my opinion. The book starts off strong, with an interesting new world that's explained at a easy to understand pace. The characters feel like people, the plot moves along at a good pace, and the dialog isn't just edited exposition dumps. I honestly enjoyed the first part of this book, as it has everything a good book should have. It event takes the old Meta/Super human idea and puts a simple if interesting new spin on it. The thing is, the MC is a little too perfect. And by a little I mean a lot. I'll give the authors credit, its pretty subtle at first. The MC doesn't woo every woman he runs across, or beat every opponent with ease. Actually, the way those things play out is very well done. But the MC just, well, he just doesn't have any flaws. He's tall, handsome, super athletic, super kind, super confident, rich for his caste, knows how to fight, did really well in the army, is friends with a super hot upper-caste heiress, and is basically on good terms with everybody. When he sees injustice, he leaps out to stop it, no mater the cost to him. He's, well, a perfect hero. And in my option, disgustingly so. The main reason I dislike how the MC is built, aside from a small inferiority complex, is that the dude has no flaws. I mean, absolutely ZERO flaws. He isn't self conscious about his body, he doesn't get taken advantage of for his kindness, he didn't struggle really hard to get his dream job or his (relative) wealth, doesn't have any insecurities or mental issues as far as I can tell, not from his time in the military or from his time out in the wilds. The MC has no one close to him, no goals he's struggling to achieve, no past he's desperate to avenge, and, well, no motivations. None of his strength are balanced out by weaknesses, or even are the source of weaknesses (Good way to write a character btw). He's just a perfect Mary Sue protagonist waiting to be caught up in the plot. Wait, no! I forgot something. The MC does have one flaw, one itty-bitty little thing wrong with him! Despite all of his amazing traits, he doesn't have any super powers! This means he can't be with his heiress girlfriend, and he has to deal with the oppression of those who do. Okay, so now we have a character who will have to struggle to overcome the very real qualitative difference between him and his oppressors. This could be interesting. But WAIT. Guess what the very first plot point in the book is?? Take a wild guess? Take a wild, just out there guess?? He gets superpowers! What. A. Surprise! Well there goes all the depth he had right there. But wait, it gets better! Does he work really hard for them, earning them through sweat and blood and effort? No, he's chosen by some mysterious entity for his brains! The brains that he hasn't shown off at any point so far, other than just being generally better than other people. How convient for him! But wait, it gets EVEN BETTER! The MC doesn't get ordinary, run-of-the-mill superpowers. No, that would be too fair and balanced for our Mary Sue of a character. Our MC gets the Ultra Extra HD Pro version of superpowers! How fun! Seriously, at this point I could see the story was turning into a bland, oppression-crushing power-trip of a fantasy, and I just couldn't enjoy it anymore. If that's your thing, then go right ahead, but I prefer MCs who feel like real people, who have human flaws and can grow and change into better people, shaped by their experiences. Tell me, where would this MC grow from where he is now? Become a god? He is already perfectly good at every character skill there is except superpowers, and that's the first thing they fix! The only thing they can do at this point really is to either devolve the character (which isn't fun for anyone), or to power on and have a Superman-esque power-arc where nothing can stop him and he proves how good and righteous his ideals of friendship and love are by being awesome and beating up the evil, mean oppressors! (can you hear the sarcasm???) Anyway, I just don't think I'll find it a fun read. Sure the plot and world-building are pretty damn good, but without a relatable and/or interesting main character to carry the story onward, there's really no point. I thought I'd leave a warning for the rest of you readers, as well as some advice for the authors. The MC might get better later on, but I just don't have the willpower to get to that point.

A quick fun book

obviously R.C. Bray as narrator made this book come alive, but the mythos of the world has enough going for it that I can't wait to see where the rest of the series heads!

A good book!

Like the MC also R.C Bray is the perfect narrate for this book. If you like super type powers and a down to earth MC this book is for you.
