Lex Tennessee has turned his life around. After taking the fall for grand theft auto charges, Lex has done his time, gotten out of prison, gotten a real job and a normal life, and even gotten married. Peggy is the center of his life, and when she dies unexpectedly in what appears to be a freak accident, Lex is devastated. But when he starts to look into the matter and discovers that one of the city’s most beloved superheroes may have had a hand in her death… to say that Lex wants revenge is an understatement. The Cadet may be a celebrity of sorts, but he has abused his powers and status one time too many, and Lex decides to end his career for good. With the aid of some of the Cadet’s former foes, Lex forms a plan. But will he be able to pull it off?

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.

I want to thank Goodreads First Reads and authors Steven Hartman and Eddrick Bedford for the good fortune to win this book in the Goodreads drawing. When I entered the drawing I did not realize that the description of "superheroes" meant that literally, not figuratively. This book was like a novelized comic book which would appeal to young adults and people into fantasy type stories. The central issue in this book was an evil superhero, and those people trying to end his murder spree. This was a fun and fast book to read, and I did really have fun reading it. It was fast paced and interesting. The presentation and cover art work was excellent! I would have rated this a solid 4 except for the several grammatical errors. I feel that once a book is actually printed in real book form, there is no room for those kind of mistakes that can be distracting to an otherwise great read. But overall, I found this very enjoyable.

This is a complete departure from my normal reads, but quite enjoyable. I love the author's spin on a Superhero everyone thinks is so wonderful, but really just using his power for women. There were some issues with lack of character development, but overall the story flowed well. I understand this may be a series. Hopefully the author will expand further on the characters as he goes.

I would have never picked up a book about Superheroes, but gave it a shot anyway. I went in with an open mind and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the story, it was fun to read. I recommend this to anyone that is looking for an easy and entertaining read.

When corruption overcomes the power. The power itself becomes corrupt. Lex's wife became victim to The Cadet by his own creation of an incident which caused her death. The Cadet over-confident in his power to save her, could not. Lex gets his revenge at the end.
