    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 welltions relied a bit too much on sight at the expense of the other senses, but it [...]

    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)urlish, whiny, [...]

    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, is how the FBI [...]

    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 [...]

    RATING 3.5 Day of the Destroyer is novel told from the perspective of four superhuman people whose lives intertwine inexplicably on one fated day.What I liked For the most part, I liked this book. Although the book started out a little sluggishly, the second half more than made up for it.At the outset, one could feel a little disconnected, reading from four different ideas and wonder where they connect. Normally this type of reading puts me off. But in this book, the change of perspectives was m [...]

    (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 the most part, I understood what was going on.Although the plot of this story wasn't really an original o [...]

    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 [...]

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for review. The coolest city, the most colourful era, the most amazing people. This could only describe New York City in the 1970's and a novel about superheroes. The NYC blackout of 1977 is the pivotal event in this fictional novel. It took me a few chapters to get into this novel but was well worth the wait. I enjoyed getting to know the characters in a good amount of detail before delving into the main plot. The superhero characters were more enjoya [...]

    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 them more credible 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 [...]

    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 wasn't in most of it. If I could, I'd probably give this 3.5 stars but I just d [...]
