Publisher Description: Jim Quig has one love, his job as a cop. He has to be fine with the fact that the superheroes get all the credit while he protects the streets. When the director of the Super Hero Initiative (SHI) needs Jim’s help in solving a mystery, he’s not interested. It’s not his problem that an ancient artifact called the Hero Engine has been destroyed and the after effects are causing mass chaos.
Review: “Cool” Jim Quig is hired by SHI to find out why a Hero has gone bonkers and is razing every city she turns up in.
The character development and the movement is excellent in this novel. As the characters gain in depth, the story line moves towards completing the mystery. The idea that normal humans are vetted in order to enter the Hero Engine and become super human, is very creative and sets the stage for successive novels. The world building is that good.
“So why you no give 5 stars!?”. Too many grammatical errors to overlook with some scattered logic in scene development. This novel needed to go through a final editing/beta process before publication. Still, a great read and a very talented writer. I look forward to more from this author.
