Review: Hero

HeroHero by Perry Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thom Creed is the teenage son of one of the worlds best know superheros but life hasn’t been easy for him. His father was disgraced while trying to save the world and his mother disappeared years ago. To top it off, Thom must deal with being a gay teen with budding superpowers of his own; both of which will not go over well with his father.

I honestly don’t ever recall reading a book so quickly. This was an incredibly fast read with an engrossing story; much like reading a comic book but without the pictures. With the exception of thinly veiled heroes most comic fans are sure to recognize, there’s nothing contrived. Each of the main character’s is unique and well imagined and the pieces of the plot drift steadily together like practiced marching band a half time.

It’s a shame we lost Perry Moore earlier this year. I would have enjoyed reading more of his work.
