Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next installment.


I just finished “Rogues of Overwatch” and I’ll start by saying I haven’t read a superhero novel before, though I’ve been meaning to. I’d also like to mention the cover, which I think is phenomenal. It definitely sets up the vibe of the book well. The only thing I could’ve done without in the book for me was Lydia and Aidan’s relationship. I felt it distracted just a wee bit from all the other exciting plot ideas at work in the book which frankly seemed a lot more important.

The only thing I could’ve done without in the book for me was Lydia and Aidan’s relationship. I felt it distracted just a wee bit from all the other exciting plot ideas at work in the book which frankly seemed a lot more important. Alas, I do know the protagonists are fairly young and this type of thing happens to us all growing up, so I don’t really hold it against the book overall. The real highlight of the novel are the frickin’ villains. My God, these guys were endlessly threatening while also funny at times, all without losing their menace. Oliver and Lionel are despicable dudes, but you can’t help enjoying their presence. Whyte is a superb character, managing to be mysterious, realistic, and one hell of a menace. The antagonists really push our heroes to the brink and there is little the mighty Lydia and Mark can do to stop them. It’s one of the novel’s strongest points: keeping up the level of tension and making you sympathize with all these characters. My personal favorite was Heather. Readers really will have to pick their brain to see which side she’s really on. One of the best parts of this book was how it showed the struggle to stay good in a world teeming full of the depraved such as Oliver and Whyte. Their willingness to go all the way seemed to put our heroes at a severe disadvantage. I wonder in the future if the heroes will up the ante themselves or stick toothier moral codes. The ending is, well, damn it I can’t say anything, but just wow. Bring on book three! Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to the next installment. Hopefully it’s on its way soon.
