A superhero's life can be a funny thing. Saving the world one moment. Asking your girlfriend to prom and applying to college the next.

In Failstate, we got to see how Robin Laughlin (aka Failstate) sees both the world and his super-debonair superhero older brother, Ben (aka Gauntlet). But in Gauntlet Goes to Prom, we get to hear the story from Gauntlet's point of view. At approximately fifty pages, Gauntlet Goes to Prom sets the stage for the next book in the series, Legends, but it's also a comp

Gauntlet was a major supporting character in the novel Failstate and here he gets his own story. As implied he's going to his prom with his girl looking forward to giving her a promise ring. But even as they make his plans, something is afoot. And why does his dateless brother show up as Failstate.

The big brother of the star of the Failstate books is a character in himself: slightly vain and egotistical, yet with a tender side. It's fun to see him squirm and feel his nerves as he tries to broach

Seeing things from Gauntlet's perspective was really interesting, especially how he sees Failstate.

I really enjoyed this read.

The writing was tighter (and the proof-reading was definitely better) than in "Failstate."

I really like these characters and storylines, and I'm looking forward to starting the next book ("Legends") as soon as my daughter gets done with it.

This is a great little Failstate novella told from Gauntlet's point-of-view. I loved this extra short. It's a complete story that stands well on its own, and the quality is excellent. It was nice to see Gauntlet's take on what has happened in the story so far. It made him much more likeable. And readers of Failstate all know how our hero sees himself, but It was rather wild to see how others saw him - namely his older brother. Quite a difference indeed!
