Publisher's Summary

Hugo Malalou must die.

Greyson Hirsch has carved a bloody path of destruction across America in his war against superheroes. Fully embracing the villainous persona of Damocles, he now dedicates himself to ridding the world of these “false messiahs".

His next target is San Miguel’s own Aegis, known to friends and family as Hugo Malalou. By slaughtering Aegis and his team of Paragons, Damocles hopes to crush the symbolic face of this new generation of heroes.

Hugo is equally motivated to stopping Damocles’ reign of terror, bringing him closer to a shadowy powerbroker hell-bent on burning the current world order to ashes. But Hugo’s efforts are derailed when a close friend is corrupted by an ancient evil that could plunge San Miguel and beyond into nightmarish chaos.

Now he is forced to make an impossible choice - stop Damocles, or save his friend's life. The only option this young hero has is to roll the dice, causing destructive consequences no matter what he chooses.

This novel contains potty-mouthed teens, super-on-super violence, and brain-melting superhero action.

Epic storyline hits a highpoint

Ekeke has crafted a world of superheroes that's Completely original while playing homage to the great archetypes

United We Stand is a rollercoaster ride from start to finish dealing with magic, time travel, trust, betrayal, and super hero slug feasts. The storylines could be taken from your favorite comic book, but comes from diverse and inclusive world with characters hailing from every race and creed.

The writing style, narration, and voice acting all mimic what I imagine having a comic book read to me would sound like, with some of the descriptive passages seeming reminiscent of an original comic book script.

not a good follow up to a great series

This book was very anticipated but when read was a huge let down. The story introduced so many different characters I couldn't keep up. The plot was very predictable and the lead ups left me shaking my head. The obvious death of important individuals or kidnapping goes unnoticed for several weeks by heroes and government is so far fetch I had to stop reading . The ending is a obvious ploy to buy the next instead of relying on the stories merit. Thanks for ride CC and I hope your next book series stays true.

Great Series!

There is some much going on in this series, with several different character arcs. It is so well-written and seamlessly intertwined that watching everything come together is a thrill.

The narration is very good, particularly from the two men. The female narrator has a cadence and lilt that is occasionally off-putting and frequently distracting. She is talented and unique, just not a performer I personally enjoy.

I'm hate listening at this point.

So, I generally don't write many reviews but I'm feeling compelled to speak up. The story at it's core is solid but like most have commented WAY too much teen sex, tension, and seems like way too much detail on what everyone is wearing. I think the series in general suffers from trying too hard and by that I mean, I get that you need certain aspects of teenage behavior in order for the story to be believable but some of the simple problem solving to capture "villains" or maneuver simple social problems seems almost laughable that they can't figure it out and I find myself either rolling my eyes or saying REALLY?! I literally could piece out a simple way that they could defeat Damocles but I suppose there would be no point in that. I say all of this to say do better. I know we're supposed to disable belief for a superhero teen story but that doesn't mean the man character has to fall into the fatal flaw of main character stupidity. The narration has gotten a lot better but I still cringe every time Adenrele Ojo does certain character's accents. When she's is just reading the story, she's fine but the Bronx accent just makes her sound nasally. I would have bailed on this series maybe at book 4 but I feel like I have to see this thing through even if I'm not enjoying myself while doing it. Just my .02.

performance is getting better

The performance is getting better; however there's some flaws with the story that are pretty stark when it comes to Grayson. His real super power is super hypocrisy. He's always going on about super heroes being evil while doing the most heinous things.

If he really wanted to stop super heroes he should be killing super villains. If there were no super villains then there would be no need for super heroes. This could have set up a more realistic clash between him and the heroes.

I don't buy the super heroes attract super villains nonsense line. That's like saying criminals rib banks or sell drugs to challenge the cops. It's complete nonsense.

Cliff of a decade.

So... everything finally came together. EvilCorp takes down our cast and sends the power players into a chaotic chase that will hopefully be dealt with in the next book.
