I remember reading this on Wattpad. It's a great take on the superhero genre, really draws you in. I found the main character intriguing and the villain compelling. Also can't fault the setting ;)

Third-party review
This novel is a fresh take on meta-humans. It is set on in our world and poses real life problems like cancer that is not seen in more traditional superhero novels. I would recommend it for anyone who values the traditional hero themes and would like to see them in a new light.

About the author

Chris Strange discovered at an early age that he was completely unsuited to life among normal human beings. After experimenting with several different career paths, he said to hell with it and went back to writing, his first love. 

Chris is the author of DON'T BE A HERO and the Miles Franco series of hard-boiled urban fantasy novels, beginning with THE MAN WHO CROSSED WORLDS. He writes for the daydreamers, the losers, the cynics and the temporarily insane. His stories are full of restless energy and driven by a passion for the unorthodox. He loves writing characters on the fringe of society: the drifters, the knights errant, the down-and-out. 

In his spare time, Chris is an unapologetic geek, spending far too long wrapped up in sci-fi books, watching old kaiju movies and playing video games. He lives in the far away land of New Zealand, and is currently working towards a Master’s degree in Forensic Science.

He doesn’t plan on growing up any time soon.
