     “Lainey Livingston has just been made a member of the Elite Hands of Justice, the world’s premiere cadre of superheroes.  Her work with the Red Knights and the Power Squad was impressive; her apprehension stats are above normal, and her great strength and ability to fly are equally remarkable.  But no one gets a free pass to active duty, and Lainey’s next test is going to be her hardest.  She’s to train with the Reincarnist.
     
    Robert Elliot, the Reincarnist.  A magician who has lived multiple lifetimes, he’s the smartest man in the world—and Lainey’s last obstacle.  He was personally responsible for seeing Pushstar wash out. But his eyes are the softest, kindest that Lainey has ever seen, and he’s just the sort to knock her for a loop.  Lesson #1: Romantic entanglements among crime fighters are super exploitable, and falling in love with a man who “can’t die” is like waving a red flag at a bull.  Especially not when the most fiendish plot ever is about to break over Megalopolis like a wave of fire.”

    I’ve been a fan of the SHOMI line from Dorcester since it first came out and this addition to their line was a definite WIN.  A.J. Mendon’s debut novel was a really awesome read! It was a totally new, (at least to me), twist on action romance and I flat out loved it. Super Heroe’s with flaws and evil villans, romance with an unusal twist and great world-building kept me turning the pages to find out what happens. For anyone who’s a fan of comics, superheroes and a fantastic take on the “world” they live in and the “lives” they lead – this is a must read!

    I really don’t know what else to say without giving away spoilers, except that this book is Made Of Awesome! I’m really hoping that Ms. Mendon will be writing more books based in Megalopolis. You can find out more about A.J. Mendon at her WEBSITE.
