Book Spotlight: Red Wrath by Gerhard Gehrke

I’m always on the lookout for cool new superhero books, so when Gerhard Gehrke contacted me about his new novel, Red Wrath, I was super interested (pun intended). Then I heard the premise described as “What if the Punisher tried to take out Superman?” and immediately put it on my to-read list.

  • A female protagonist who sounds totally badass? Check.
  • An interesting twist on the superhero genre? Check.
  • The most metal title I’ve ever heard? Double-check.

Check out the blurb below and let me know what you think. Personally, I can’t wait to read it.

As usual, I haven’t read all of these books personally, so check out the reviews and samples before buying. And happy reading!

Aliens, megalomaniacs, and power-mad mages, Amelia should be so lucky. Luke is gone, stolen by the mysterious red gem. With no way to track him, she must stand up to the other threats she faces. Someone out there has her tech, and they used it to outfit a group of cold-blooded mercs that tried to kill her. Then there’s Tempus. A new threat which appears to be able to travel through time. Amelia won’t go down easy, however. The Full Metal Superhero always has a trick up her sleeve. Is this one threat too many for our armored heroine?

New Superhero Fiction (August 2018)

What time is it? Time to showcase some awesome new books from the superhero genre! I think the cover art this month is particularly great. I love the smirk on the woman’s face on the front of Red and Black, and the art for Modified has always been fantastic. (And it’s a boxed set now! No need to suffer through the cruel cliffhangers as you wait for the next episode.) Plus, how cool is that armor on the cover of Hero Hunter?

As usual, I haven’t read all of these books personally, so check out the samples and reviews before you hit the buy button. And happy reading!

Sorceress Super Hero

by Darius Brasher

Sorceress superhero

The mess all started when I punched a 400-year-old fairy reality TV star in the throat.

Things got really weird from there.

Before I could blink, I was fighting wererats, getting kidnapped by superheroes, stealing a cape inhabited by the ghost of a magical genius, and trying to save the world alongside a 2,000-year-old immortal who wields a piece of Noah’s Ark. All while struggling to not get evicted or fired from my job.

That was just Monday. Tuesday is shaping up to be busier. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction (July 2018)

Power: Arca Book 3

by Karen Diem

Power Cover

After successfully rescuing her brother from a serial killer and stopping a plot to use a magic butter knife to massacre thousands, Zita Garcia is ready for a return to her regular life: illegally climbing skyscrapers, hiding her superpowers, and grudgingly earning a paycheck to cover all those bills piling up.

Unfortunately, her least favorite supervillains are rampaging around in a bloody crime spree, outmaneuvering and outgunning the authorities. Enlisting her friends to help, even the one sulking in his dad’s basement, she’s got to stop the bad guys and their latest evil plan before anyone else dies. Even if Zita isn’t sure what they’re doing, other than it involves Brazil.

And maybe dinosaurs. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction Releases (May 2018)
