5 Stars Out Of 5
A surprise hit!
December 26, 2013
I originally bought this book because I was bored and thought that this book, with its rather silly sounding premise would at least be worth a few laughs. Boy was I ever wrong! And I say that in the best possible way!
What I found was a surprisingly serious, realistic and well thought out story world that, while it was still full of your typical overblown superhero action scenes it almost felt as though it could happen.
Some parts read more like a good mystery novel. There was plenty of investigating to be had and it was great to see Failstate using his head and not just his powers. The characters were very realistic and likeable and I love how the author subtly weaves his faith into the plot without shoving it in your face. This book is also very clean and this reader appreciates that a great deal.
This book was a surprise gem that has set John Otte high on my list of new favorite authors. I am very much looking forward to reading the sequel.
