But... there are some word mis-usages that stopped me dead in my tracks. The most significant one was confusing “eminent“ with “imminent “. Buddy, you gotta remember that eminent means distinguished or important but when something terrible is going to happen very soon, it is imminent. The explosion of a nuclear weapon is probably not eminent...
Anyway - a very good read.
I would have appreciated a better Table of Contents.
Oh my. Teenage angst! Is it really like that, now? I remember the emotions and passions but I was in the Untouchables/Omega group so dating, etc wasn't even contemplated. (Of course, the Beatles were still together back then.)
Still, let's get to the Outlaw. Sure, I'm only a tenth of way through but superheros usually end up being just that more often than "real life". (Superman excepted.)
First book is solid. As the story evolves it picks up speed and ....difficult to put down. I am 1/3 through the set and felt I must stop to give my take on this series. For me it's the 1 out of 20 stories that pull me in and I don't have to skim and mark read.
Almost forgot, this book is Christian safe! Yay!! No bad words, no misuse of God's name. Nudity, nope.

I'd never heard of A L (Alan) Janney. But I'm fond of apocalyptic novels so I began reading it, fully expecting it to follow the model I've outlined above. Two days later I'd finished reading it - all 2000 pages of it - and was panting for more. The danger with novels on Kindle is, of course, that since you are not carting paper books about, there's no real barrier to reading books when you really should be doing something else.
The novels are set in today's timeline in LA, but it's not today as we know it. There is a lot of violence - riots - in the area, and society is breaking down. The outline of the story, in very simple terms, is that a high-school boy, Chase, finds that he has amazing abilities as a US football player - speed on the field, the ability to throw a ball the length of the field (and further). However, these amazing abilities seem confined to the football field until he chances up a girl being mugged at an ATM machine one night. He intervenes and finds that his "extra" abilities enable him to deal with the muggers easily.
He is told by a strange old man that he has a "virus" which is changing him into a kind of super-human. The abilities he has developed are not super-powers, but enhancements. Not many people survive the virus and he is one of a small number who have "recovered" with the new abilities. As society disintegrates around him, he begins using his talents to help his friends and family survive. He becomes infamous as "The Outlaw", loved by the people but hunted by the authorities. Society disintegrates very quickly, and Chase becomes a leader in the emerging post-apocalyptic society.
Sorry if this doesn't sound very exciting, but it is. Alan Janney has the knack of avoiding cliches and it is very, very readable. I kept expecting the next book (there are seven in the series) to be weaker than the previous ones, but that isn't the case.
I strongly recommend The Outlaw series to you all!
