In Failstate Legends, he’s the holder of a superhero’s license but the governing authorities are none too excited that he’s the city’s protector.
Superheroes from around the country converge on New Chayton as a crop of zombies show up on the scene. Among the undead is a very alive Prohibition era superhero; Sarge has been brought back to life, but is he who the city needs for the 21st century?
Failstate has his doubts and that puts him at odds with his superiors.
Out of his superhero alter-ego, Robin deals with normal teen stuff like rivalry with his older, cooler brother, Ben aka Gauntlet, a strained relationship with his best friend, Mike aka Veritas, and a a cute new redhead, Charlene.
If I had to give any nitpick about his book, it would be the cover. I know that the zombies play a big part in the book but why do they have to be featured on the cover? I hate that I can't put this book on my shelves because of the cover. My much younger and sensitive siblings would freak if they saw it. And then my mother would nail me for having allowed them to see it. So Legends must stay out of sight for now. I should have gotten the Kindle copy instead.
But I really hope that book three comes soon. I can't wait to read it!f
Set in a world of super heroes and zombies one might think it's just for kids - but they'd be wrong. John Otte has managed to capture all of the elements of a superb story arch and bend them with near telepathic prowess into a wonderful sequel to Failstate.
I can't wait for John's next book. He's one of the truly bright lights in science fiction in the YA world, and his devotion to Christian principles makes this an uplifting read for any person. I have great expectations for John in the future - he's not disappointed me yet.
