Unlicensed vigilante Kynetic has a plan to get her license but it's not what anyone would call heroic. She plans to become the sidekick and girlfriend of licensed hero Failstate by ensuring that his existing girlfriend Charlotte breaks up with him. To do this, she actually befriends Charlotte and hatches a scheme with small time supervillains to confront a heavy hitting supervillain with the goal of setting Failstate up to have to break a big date while trying to secure a license for herself.

I've been wanting to read the Failstate series for a while, so when I saw this short story for free, I picked it up.

I can certainly see how this is an entertaining and engaging superhero series! Kynetic makes for an interesting protagonist because her primary goal here is--seduce the hero. Indeed, her scheme of "break his heart, so I can have it" is villain worthy. But don't worry--while Kynetic might not recognize this as wrong at first, the author does. So without giving away any spoilers, I'l

This is the first book I've read from John Otte (besides a sampling from "Numb"). I didn't realize that it was a novella when I got it and don't usually care for the shallowness of typical novellas, but this one was worth it. It had a great voice, written from the viewpoint of a high-school girl with superhero powers. It left me wanting to read more and guess what! There are three other books in the Failstate series! My only detractor would be that it was somewhat predictable, but one can only e ...more

I'm about halfway through the first book in the Failstate series but when this mini-adventure came out for Kindle, I jumped into it and really enjoyed reading it. You can definitely follow the plot even if you haven't read the previous books. It's a quick, entertaining, worthwhile read if you enjoy fantasy/superheroes at all. Now I need to go back and catch up on the rest of the series! ...more

While John W. Otte's superhero trilogy centers on his original hero Failstate, he has given readers more insight into secondary characters through the release of short novellas between each installment. This latest one focuses on a female superhero introduced in the second novel. It largely succeeds as a fun romp in between his larger stories.

The Failstate novels are solid YA territory, and this novella continues in the same vein. Teenage romance and problems at school all circulate around the l

My first intro into Otte's writing, and I was pleasantly surprised! I'm a sucker for good superhero books, and I now need to get my hands on Otte's other books in this series. Perfect for the YA audience, but also great for the young at heart (and those who love Marvel movies!) Great balance of action, angst, and Christian threads. ...more
