“Lashner has penned a compelling and unique novel in which he includes a number of historical influences like Louis Armstrong, Janis Joplin, and Dashiell Hammett. This diverse list demonstrates just how interesting Guaranteed Heroes is.” —Bookreporter

Top customer reviews
The best post-apocalyptic fiction tells us something pressing about the present too. In Guaranteed Heroes it is not hard to perceive commentary on the pharmaceutical industry and its placing profits before people. But for the nuclear accident, the present too seems to have disincorporated whole territories from the fruits of progress.
The book has satisfying plot twists, nicely sketched characters and a worthy and righteous finale.
This is quite different than the Victor Carl series. I wasn't sure what to expect, other then I was pretty sure it would be good. It was.
Post Apocalyptic stories are not really a major interest of mine, but Lashner does a nice job. A brother searches for his kidnapped sister. And we're off and running.
The characters are very one-dimensional and the plot lacks credibility. Aside from that it is a good book!
I really can't recommend it but it is not so bad that I had to put it down in mid-stream.
Don't want to spoil it but I was left gasping with the ending.
