Publisher's Summary

Some superheroes want to save the world. Damian is just hoping to save himself. In the post-Break world of superpowers, necromancy is the one gift nobody wants. Everyone knows what happens to Crows; they go mad and they go bad. That's the story of infamous mass murderers like Crimson Death, Gravedigger, and Sally Cemetery. It's also the story of David Jameson, an otherwise unremarkable man who came home one day and killed his wife, orphaning their five-year-old son, Damian.

Thirteen years later, Damian has inherited more than just grey eyes and a beak of a nose from his father. He too is a Crow, doomed to become a killer unless he can find a way to avoid the violent madness endemic to his powers. When a Finder offers enrollment at Los Angeles' Academy of Superheroes, he jumps at the chance, believing training could be the key to changing his fate. His classmates despise him, the majority of his teachers want him expelled, and his mom's ghost hasn't said a word since reappearing when he was nine, but Damian isn't the kind to give up. He's going to take control of his destiny or die in the process. It's that or end up like his father. 

See These Bones is a post-apocalyptic, superhero, coming-of-age ghost story...with expletives.

Brilliant

This book was brilliant. I have to wake up for work in 5 hours so naturally I’m going to start the next book. The narrator was amazing

Engaging series, looking forward to more.

For me, this was an absorbing story with imaginative world-building and a different take on the superhero genre. Just ordered the second in the series, because I need to know where this story goes!

A great first listen from this author

Without discussing the other aspects of the plot or feel of the book, this story had possibly the best written examples of combat that I've personally encountered. If I was a budding author attempting to write a piece with action in it, See These Bones would be in my top 5 research materials.

In the age where media is flooded by trending superhero fiction, this book managed to stay interesting and relatively unpredictable throughout.

While I believe the narration may leave some people dissatisfied, the sleepy tone left me feeling relaxed. The narrator sounds mostly like a barely awake Howard Stern but he made it work.

I would very much recommend this book and am sorry that at the time of my writing this review the sequel isn't available on audible.

I liked it

The story has a good pace and and interested main character. Every power is different, and what makes MC's power unique is the question.

Great finish. I need another book!

A surprisingly good one.

I was hesitant through the first couple chapters, but this book and the sequel really get good. Narrator was on point.

Fantastic!

A fantastic start to a promising series! Especially if you enjoy your super hero genre from the comfort of a darker than typical corner.

An excellent story!

Very enjoyable characters, an unusual premise, and great story telling. The only real negative for me was a bad decision made by the protagonist in a half-brained attempt to derail his future: found that frustrating. But overall, full marks.

A true rarity of the superhero/fantasy genre

It's a completed series/story! One I binged very quickly. This review is for the entire series.

This story runs kind of similar to the Super Powereds series early on due to the superhero school, but it is different enough to avoid being considered a copy. It's told in 1st person from a flawed but relatable if not likeable MC and it's much darker on the whole. It diverges substantially from that series as the tale unfolds. The world building and full story arc was unique and very imaginative. It kept me interested from start to finish.

I'm sure if it gains popularity the bible thumpers will be here bashing it for the profanity, violence, and the little bit of sexual content, but for those not so prude or squeamish it's a very entertaining story. The performance by the narrator was well done; good pacing, energy, and usage of different voices and accents for different characters. I will add this to the list of stories I re-listen to.

Just awesome

I love superhero hero books. Most suck. This one was the opposite. Totally worth a credit and more.

thought it was just another superhero book

A little darker than I thought but I enjoyed that. The main character struggles alot. sometimes his personality seems a bit childish but he is only 18 and had a rough life. slowed down for me at the end a little bit but overall I liked it. Just bought the second one and hoping the pacing is a little bit better
