Summary

Not all heroes wear capes and uniforms...or see themselves becoming the villain.

As his sophomore year wraps up, Hugo Malalou - aka Aegis - is living his best life. He’s working with Lady Liberty to protect San Miguel, acing all his classes, and casually dating three insanely hot girls. Until one routine night patrol nearly gets him killed. 

Before long, he’s pulled into a dangerous pursuit that isolates him from his friends, while his list of enemies keeps growing. And when he becomes the city’s last defense against an all-powerful adversary, he’ll find himself in the fight of his life. 

Quinn partners with Hugo to expose Paxton-Brandt’s unethical research on superhumans. But the multinational’s scorched-earth response leaves everyone she loves caught in the blast radius. Can she prevail and topple Paxton-Brandt or is this another example of Too Big to Fail?

Meanwhile, Greyson begins his crusade to purge the world of superheroes. But his first target proves to be more than his match in power and purpose. And when a specter from his past makes their presence felt, Greyson’s mission might end before it even starts. 

Warning: This novel contains profanity, open relationships, and ass-kicking superhero action. If you’re looking for reasons to be offended by profanity, open relationships, or ass-kicking superhero action, this novel might not be for you.

It Gets Both Worse :( and Better :) Long Review

I have binged all four of these books, and have written a review on three. This past book has some of the similar critiques of the last two, only they are more problematic in this one. This book has more teenage "bedroom" stuff than the other three combined. It is almost as if the author has a fetish for mid-teen "action". It was almost to the point in this book that I quit reading because it sooooooo obfuscates some of the greater points about the story. I mean, how many times can you use the phrase or its equivalent "Hugo felt it in his loins". But the worst part about it is it minimizes what has made the series so great. Which is the diversity and inclusion of characters. It turns the other teenage girls into Hugo's harem, and makes them into one dimensional "mean girls" or "weak girls" but all the girls fawn and seek Hugo's bedroom prowess. So simultaneously you empower diverse POCs and sexual orientation via superhuman representation, then you diminish it via gender marginalization. This occurs also with the adult characters (Connie, Annie, Therese's one-dimensionality, etc.). The editors should catch this.

Also in this book there were a lot of "come on man" twists, which shall not be revealed to avoid spoilers. One twist is M. Night Shyamalan "I see dead people great" the rest was M. Night Shyamalan, "The village" terrible.

One twists was related to Quin's relationship and her coming to terms with her bi-sexuality. Ekeke did a great job with this long arc over time, making it feel organic. Yet, Ekeke near ruins it with one twist, near the end of this book.

So why then do I say this book gets better? The superhero fights are fantastic on pretty much all fronts, especially the penultimate fight. This book Ekeke really out does themself in that department. Outside of "the bedroom stuff" Ekeke also does a good job in Hugo's evolution as a hero. I am still scratching my head at Grayson's arc, which is really irrational on many fronts, but I see what Ekeke is trying to do with his long arc. I just wish it was a little more practical. So in total I downgraded this book from my 5 & 4 star ratings of the first three to only 3 stars for this one.

A step down from earlier books in the series.

While still a book about heroic action and sleazy villains, the interesting mysteries and clever, descriptive storytelling takes a back seat in this book to excessive action scenes and repetitive romance scenes that rarely add anything interesting to the story itself.

Indeed, even the author seems to periodically get bored with his own storytelling and just jump in time without warning or explanation. Instead, characters will just start confusingly referencing events that happened in a time jump and after a while the author will give a quick recap of what was missed. If you like to be told stories via quick recap instead of descriptive scenes, then I guess that's fine. But, at least a few of the time skipped scenes seem more interesting than the story that wasn't skipped, and I am left wishing the story was written in a more interesting, less distracting manner.

However, the performance of the three voice actors is top notch, and they do a great job making the story as interesting as it can possibly be...given the writing they have to work with.

Too much sexual content

Could go without the teen sexual references
At least move from teen section over to adult

I'm begging you!

PLEASE GET A NEW FEMALE VOICE ACTOR!!! No offense meant but her voice may very well be the most obnoxious sound I've ever heard in my life.

cringe-worthy.. unable to finish.

yes, this review has spoilers! I did finish reading this book, but my previous review which is below still stands with some additional feedback. I will begin with the positive The voice narration / voice actors are amazing! they have received a five-star review with an every novel that I've read in this series because they deserve it. I can listen to their voices all day because I thought they did an excellent job. it is super great when they do the accents and I was super pulled in by their performance. moreover, I love the diversity that is within this book. it is very seldom you see African American characters, more specifically African-American women portrayed in a positive light and I am super proud of the author for doing so. love also the range in Asian characters that they have in this book. we often forget that America is very diverse and novels especially fantasy novels forget to include people of diverse backgrounds. . I absolutely love Quinn and all of the characters that surrounds her. her love for Teresa and her queerness is absolutely adorable. not to mention, her strong female character makes up for the absolute slander of women within this book. I love how she takes actions and creates lasting relationships with the regular Joe's and superheroes that surrounds her. her character as a reporter is intelligently placed and the situations she get into are absolutely intriguing. moreover, it's pretty cool that she is the cousin of the only high school girl that I liked. hats off to the author for creating this character and connecting those who were around her. she is the only reason I finished listening to this particular book. but with that said my review below still stands and I think most of this book was absurd and uncalled for. more specifically the Grayson story was absolutely boring and confusing. not sure why all of his ex members were eventually killed except for one who didn't attend that was a pretty sad revelation. also, the Connie separation was underwhelming and not surprising at all. I think that the Island story in the last novel could have been omitted because it really didn't have any substance to what he's doing because it was very wishy being that he is seeking revenge on supers but he helped supers only to the Ben betrayed the supers and then partner them together to run the island.. it was super hard to follow and again it was boring. this review is premature, but as much as I resent not finishing a book or audiobook this book is absolutely too much! as I stated in my past review, I don't like the consistent objectification of women and belittling them and portraying them as backstabbing, conniving, manipulative animals! moreover, it bothered me even more that this portrayal was depicted by young women. yes, it is evident that there are true mean girls, however the actions of the males are glossed over and this type of behavior on both sides should not be perpetuated being that many young people read these types of books. evidently, this book is feeding the masses the way they want children to act and then those children read this type of smut and act in that manner. it's disturbing! this book sets up males to be Bros who are just indulging, however the girls in this book are seen as s****. I'm not sure what we're supposed to learn from Hugo's actions, but an outcast turned superhero Playboy should not just portray a womanizing, self-absorbed, fake night who inserts himself in the middle of girl drama only two manipulate his way into most of their beds and in between their legs, , only two make himself seem like the nice guy who understands and empathizes with their situation. it's absolutely gross and that's an understatement to say the least. ? it is also unreasonable to believe that a sophomore would be having threesomes and banging an entire group of friends. . he is the problem but poses himself as the solution, . it's disgusting, and diverts this story line from his heroic attributes. it appears he is a young Titan and training in all aspects, maybe his sexes ways is molding him to be another sexist, womanizing, degrading superhero! I just didn't understand this angle. not to mention, the situation with Bree is so old and exhausting. it appears we are just being prepared and the book is foreshadowing a gross reunion between the superhero and the broken pseudo pretty femme fatale. , Bri. let me guess, eventually the superhero will leave the only character that I like Jody for the superficial self-absorbed Brie! none of the surprises in this book or actually twists. why is it that these books always show how shallow guys are and are only attracted to horrible, angry and broken females who treat people like crap!? the aut was was more adorable to see Hugo in a relationship with Presley but I can't stomach his actions and it's hard for me to continue listening to the absurd drama and sex that these teams are participating in. moreover, what is the point of the Grayson story? is this supposed to be a lesson on hypocrisy? are we supposed to be intrigued by his rage against superheroes? but okay with a fact that he has no animosity towards humans who kidnapped him, used his powers to fight others, and objectified him and used him as a sex slave? I'm confused. because all I see is a delusional super who despises himself and his powers and want to take it out on other supers, moreover he is a walking contradiction because he saves an island from supers and sets up a phony democracy portraying supers ruling with baselines? he was all gone for Solomon ruling, but then he states that he wants to take revenge on powerful beings? I'm just really confused by what he stands for and what the point of Grayson is or is not. also, what's up with the falling out of him and Connie and why did it take place off scene? it'll be great if the audience was pretty the interaction of this Duo since they started out as a pair and ended in the last book as a pair. it is quite absurd to start a story with Grayson as a solo especially when his plot is boring and unreasonable to begin with. as I stated before, I was unable to finish this particular book because it is becoming outlandish and cringeworthy! I must take a break from this series and clean my palette, maybe in the near future I will revisit this review if I have the gall to finish reading / listening to this particular audiobook.

Alvin’s review

There are some really good characters. All the teenage drama is too much. And too much to believe
. Too much for 16 year olds. Hugo has way too many relationships.

Thank you C.C.

I really enjoy this series, watching Hugo become a hero with all his mistakes is just such a nice change.

if anyone is looking for a good read/listen check this out. The emotions of the character really bleed through well
