Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to Dreadnought, featuring "the most exciting new superheroes in decades." (Kirkus)

Only nine months after her debut as the superhero Dreadnought, Danny Tozer is already a scarred veteran. Protecting a city the size of New Port is a team-size job, and she's doing it alone. Between her newfound celebrity and her demanding cape duties, Dreadnought is stretched thin, and it's only going to get worse.

When she crosses a newly discovered billionaire supervillain, Dreadnought comes under attack from all quarters. From her troubled family life to her disintegrating friendship with Calamity, there's no lever too cruel for this villain to use against her.

She might be hard to kill, but there's more than one way to destroy a hero. Before the war is over, Dreadnought will be forced to confront parts of herself she never wanted to acknowledge.

And behind it all, an old enemy waits in the wings, ready to unleash a plot that will scar the world forever.

Better than the first one

Oh Dionysus, this was a great novel. There were times where I kept pausing it to draw out the pleasure of the experience, or because the emotions got too intense for me. The world-building is as phenomenal as ever. The characters are rich and complicated. We really get to see Danny struggling with her character flaws and inner darkness. The Nemesis stuff I feel a little uneasy about, but I'll have to see how the author realizes that later down the road. Most of all, I'm glad that this novel got a proper epilogue compared to the abrupt stop of the first novel.

Also like...
I'm a cisgender man, and maybe this isn't my place...but this author GETS IT. This author understands suffering, and trauma, and self-loathing, and in those ways I was really able to relate to Danny as a character. Honestly? This book helped me with my own issues a little.

Danny is the superhero we need even though we, as a civilization, haven't done enough good to deserve her. Fictional or not, she has already saved many real human lives.

Impressive!

To be honest i was a little hesitant about getting Dreadnought,I am glad I did!! I love the genre and mixing magic in with it another genre I love was great! The whole finding one self in these two books was a different perspective I haven't experienced before and was well done.I think the main character was a little self absorbed but hey who wouldnt be.... got to read the books to find out why! I would like to learn more about Codex would be fun to see how a Prodigy does in a Meta Human world!

kind of a let down

I really liked the first book. which made how much I didn't like the sequel kind of jarring. Danny went from being this sympathetic and inspiring charecter to being kind of a bitch that I didn't mind not rooting for. I feel like the title should have been; How I almost became a psychopath mass murderer. or maybe ;How I almost became a super villan. I mean I understood the reasons but at the same time she had a great support system and everyone that "turned their back" was because she had changed her personality.

I loved this book

April Daniels did a fantastic job with this book. It picks up where Dreadnaught finished and Danielle encounters the stress of being a superhero and instant celebrity while battling her own demons and rage from years of abuse at the hands of her father and peers. I love having a superhero whom I can relate to and the story is gripping. I couldn’t stop listening.

Fast paced, and still amazing

This book fit a lot of story into a relatively short amount of time. Some of the plot happened to fast and to near itself.

That said, I still loved this book! The story, the trans representation, all add up and check every box I have. I look forward to more books my Ms. Daniels, and the third dreadnaught book!

The New Standard For Superhero Fiction

An outstanding read. Brilliant characters, fantastic dialogue, thrilling action. Daniels worldbuilding and characters draw you in to a story about power, anger, growth, and transformation.

Natasha Soudeck also narrated Daniels' first book. She gives the best performances in audiobooks I have ever heard, even including full cast productions.

Highly recommended.

Another Great Book

This Book fleshed out all of the things I wish the first one had, and it kept me on edge the whole way, can't wait to listen to it again and I eagerly await the third book. I'm giving this and the first book a second listening through, they seem to combine all of the things I've been listening to for the last six months into a compelling story without getting overly soap-boxy. I like that Dani is coming into her own but isn't perfect, and the idea that someone with her power set still being vulnerable to psychological abuse is captivating.

Book 2 gave much suspense then I thought it would

The join in this book was connecting the dots like in a Sherlock Holmes novel. Just with the comedy and ethic issues Dreadnought (book 1) started. Totally recommend listening to.

Once again I'm fucking in love with the story

I got everything I wanted from this sequel, even the inevitable next step of Danny and Sarah's relationship, that I was left wanting from the previous book, but now has finally happened and I smiled like mad when it did. I CAN'T wait for a third installment in this series and see how Dreadnought's story continues.
