Publisher's 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.

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.

Too much sexual content

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

Getting worse in a lot of ways.

Hugo has always been a bit of an #sshole but he's pretty much just a dramaqueen in this book. He creates situations of tension then shuts down about it everytime anyone mentions anything.

The mean girl harem gets extra meangirl and extra harem, basically every female character's importance is reduced to who they are banging, and how they can weaponuze sex against their enemies.

Grayson's story still straddles the line between boring and annoying.

I'm basically at the end of my patience with this series but I've invested so much time into it that not finishing seems wrong at this point.

Good series so far

I'm really enjoying the series so far. It moves at a good pace at building the story and characters. And the performers do a good job differentiating between characters, which is always a challenge with large character count stories. Starting the next one in a few moments!

hypocrisy Is too rampant for me

I was enjoying the series. but it got to the point where literally every character is completely hypocritical to the point where you have no idea what they really stand for. it's hard to feel for any of these characters when they are all really shitty controlling and manipulative people

the reporter's pov is terrible

2/3 of the story is okay; however the reporter's pov is terrible. I always sigh when it switches to her point of view. nothing about her is interesting, and I am seriously sick of hearing about her kinky hair. ffs, congrats on being black and proud, but can we get back to super hero wars.
