This entertaining novel takes place over a period of 21 consecutive hours on the day of the infamous NYC blackout of 1977 The book s 21 chapters chronicle the comings and goings of heroes and villains during each hour of that ghastly night I enjoyed the development of the new characters I presume existing heroes were explained in earlier installments The action sequences were written with great dexterity as welldescriptions relied a bit too much on sight at the expense of the other sense This entertaining novel takes place over a period of 21 consecutive hours on the day of the infamous NYC bl
What happens when a group of Superheroes feels under appreciated and unnecessary That s the main theme this novel explores This is a prequel to the first two Just Cause novels, and can be read as a stand alone book If you haven t read the others, you might want to start with this one, as it gives you some background to plot points that are touched upon in the first two books I found most of the Heroes here to be a bit unlikable I suspect this it what the author was going for churlish, wh What happens when a group of Superheroes feels under appreciated and unnecessary That s the main theme this novel explores This is a prequel to the first two Just Cause novels, and can be read as a stand alone book If you haven t read the others, you might want to start with this o
A fast paced recounting of how the Destroyer came to be complete with some history of older members of Just Cause I like how we see Harlan as a manipulative psychopath how he sees himself as above those around him the way most psychopaths do I also like how the heroes aren t all shiny and perfect They all have personality flaws unfaithfulness, self destructive behavior, drug addiction, succumbing to nihilism, etc.What I didn t like, and what cost a star or two for my rating,
DAY OF THE DESTROYERIan Thomas Healy This review is a return for the free copy of the ebook version of DoD Quite compelling story In the beginning I found it was a bit strange that super hero identity and headquarter are known publicly and unhidden But I then realize that my ideas about how superheroes story should have been shaped by the standard regular superheroes industry So, after reading a few chapters I started to get used to the concept of Just Cause super hero a la Healy and found DAY OF THE DESTROYERIan Tho

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review This review may contain spoilers.I do like things to do with superheroes Costumes are great Masks are even better.I didn t realise, when first requesting this book, that it was the third in a series I still found it fairly easy to understand, though There was some confusion a few times with the different characters, but for th
To be frank I thought the concept for this book was really good at least until I started reading it I generally steer clear of books in the middle of a series for the reasons I ll explain First, characters and background is already established giving me very little as far as growth and expanding my interest in the story Secondly, I always feel a disconnect when starting a book in the middle of series like this one Thirdly, new characters sometimes don t add to the story like they would had I To be frank I thought the concept for this book was really good at least until I started reading it I generally steer clear of books in the middle of a series for the reasons I ll explain First, characters and background is already established giving me very little as far as growth and expanding my interest in the story Secondly, I always feel a disconnect when starting a book in the middle of series like this one Thirdly, new characters sometimes don t add to the story like they would had I started this series from the beginning.I found this book to be boring despite a really good concept For me, the characters fell flat and were just uninteresting The backstory given for Just Cause Heroes they already

I received this book in exchange for a review Never having read a superhero book before I didn t know what to expect The book is well written and there is noticeable character development through the story Most, if not all, of the superheroes have character flaws or weaknesses that make themcredible in spite of their rather fantastic superhuman abilities The story covers less than a day and is suitably fast paced and entertaining To a fan of this type of book the technical details of I received this book in exchange for a review Never having read a superhero book before I didn t know what to expect The book is well written and there is noticeable character development through the story Most, if not all, of the superheroes
Disclaimer I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest reviewI m not entirely sure what to give this book I did enjoy it although it wasn t what I expected and I found myself disliking many of the superheroes as they came across as whiney and a bit pathetic Even the villain had the same attributes.My favourite character was Reggie, I really liked her and thought she was brilliant, even though she wa
