The author was so generous enough to send me this novel after I had lost a GoodReads First Read contest. He even took the time to autograph it with a personalized message. It was so kind and much appreciated. Geoffrey - if you are reading this, Thanks once again. I'd love to read more and I can't wait tor the sequel to be released.

I think I've mentioned in status updates how action packed and thrilling this book was - like nothing I've really read before. A narritive account with a millionaire genius superhero pulled straight from the pages of a comic book sent to battle the gang infested streets of The Orchard. The story read straight through, switching between the prospectives of all of the characters seamlessly between chapter breaks. Darren Kiel is a hero reminescent of Batman, fighting crime in the dead of night equipted with an undefeatable high - tech suit. Corrine Daniels is surgon at the emergency room that serves the Orchard's residents. They meet and instantly share a connection; however, in true comic book tradition, Corrine is unaware of Darren's "night job" instead, thinking he's a security guard. When Darren makes several "saves" that are caught on security footage, an overvealous, corrupt Chief of Police Webster Evans becomes obsessed with finding and incarcerating the masked hero. Likewise, the thugs on the street become hellbent on revenge.

I really got into the drama of the hunt and the continuing efforts of Darren to clean up the streets. My only complaint with the novel was the twist ending. I didn't think the addition of the twist added to the overall story. I preferred Darren's motivation stemming solely from his unusual relationship with his father. I would absolutely read the sequel to this novel and I anxiously look forward to its release date.
