Steven Hartman has a decidedly unique take on the superhero genre with his novel "Liar’s Paradise." With Lex, he has created an underdog of sorts, a former-convict-turned-model-citizen who is determined to take out one of the city’s most beloved superheroes. With the Cadet, he presents a darker side of the hero, a man who is willing to play the part while using his fame and abilities to get countless perks on the down-low. Some of the other characters are a bit stereotypical, to the point of being a detriment to the story; the cruel and hateful father-in-law, for example, seemed a bit over the top. The plot is fascinating, if in need of a bit of fleshing out. Some more back story on Peggy and Lex would have been welcome, and the final battle at the end could have used more depth. Overall, "Liar’s Paradise" was an enjoyable novel though, and readers may find themselves hoping for more from this world in the future.
