— A novel perspective, that which is not often told in the superhuman genre.
— Dark sub-elements to the plot
—Although I wouldn’t go so far as to say this is Dark Fantasy, there is a splash of blood here and there that, in my opinion, only adds to the story. Because there is no direct description of gore, I wouldn’t exclude any age groups from reading this, either.
— A compelling, paradoxical mystery
— The Monster that can be seen to grow inside the villainous element of the story
— Minor sp and grammar errors, not so prevalent as to be considered jarring and few enough to be expected of any self-published title. In reality, no one can expected a truly perfect book; errors can regularly found even in traditionally published books.
— Length: I wanted this story to be a little longer.
— Character: The MC and secondary characters could use more fleshing out; this also relates to length.
Overall, I’d give the Richter: A First Superhero Story a 4/5 and recommend it to teenagers/young adults/new adults. Those who have read other superhero stories, a quick romp through the life of Patrick Henry will likely appeal to you.
For me, the story was a bit too short, missing some vital, or maybe some really desired, information.
Of course, having said that, it is still a great story, and another brilliant addition to the series.
Logan does deliver, as usual with an overall decent quality plotline, and his characters are their usual standard. Even Patrick takes the time to reflect on his actions (again though, this could have been a bit more padded out to give us a bit more insight into his troubled soul, why did he decide to go down this line, what was so wrong? Is this a reflection on US society and bullying, just without the gun control?) There are some great questions that could come up here, but they would be very deep and meaningful, and I'm not sure if that was Logan’s intent?
It is one of those stories that makes you think about your own life and all the choices we make, and how something simple can affect those around us, or how a decision can have life altering changes. Might make someone consider bullying some kid in the future that’s for sure!
There are bits in this series that I think will become relevant later, so if you are a fan, it's well worth the read (and if not, then it's a good time to become one!)
As with all of Logan’s work, this is just about a great read and enjoying the story, and he doesn’t let you down there.
It has some very thought provoking aspects as well.
Can’t wait for the next episode!
Hopefully some extra backstory in the future please Logan?
