Hey, super-readers. It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new superhero fiction roundup, so here’s a giant mega-post with
twelve thirteen new books! I’m tempted to call it “New Supervillain Fiction,” since the villains almost outnumber the heroes. But I love a compelling, complex supervillain, so bring on the bad guys.
As usual, I haven’t personally read all of these books, so check out the samples and review before purchasing. And happy reading!
(And here’s Part 1, if you missed it.)
by J Bennett
Welcome to Big Little City, a semi-reality town where everyone who isn’t already a hero or a villain wants to become one.
Well, almost everyone… Alice just needs to keep her head down, earn her college degree, and then she’ll finally be able to escape this crazy place and find a real job. Too bad a super scary villain just blew up the restaurant where she works and her paycheck along with it!
Now Alice finds herself running low on funds and employment options. Her tuition bill is due, and the university doesn’t take promises or tales of woe.
As luck would have it, one of the town’s most famous villains is holding henchmen auditions. The gig would earn Alice the money she needs; all she has to do is betray every instinct and play the “Fame Game” she despises.
Oh, and she’s also got to beat out the other competitors who might just kill for the limited henchmen spots. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction of 2019 (Part 2)
Hey super-readers. I featured Nancy O’Toole Meservier’s debut superhero novel, Red and Black, when it came out last August. With the release of the sequel, Black and Blue, Nancy’s here with a guest post that I hope you enjoy.
One of the possible topics Kristen gave me for this guest posts was to talk about some of the inspirations for the Red and Black series. And while I could touch on the various comics, books, movies, or superhero TV shows that have influenced me, the truth of the matter is the series would have never existed if it weren’t for the video game, City of Heroes.

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.

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?

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!

“In a world of heroes, one man lives to watch them fall.”
Terrax Prime is one of the safest places in the galaxy, a world-spanning metropolis built on the foundations of order, justice and law. Terrax also happens to be a birthplace of heroes; humans born with powerful, world-altering super-powers. In service to the prime government, these heroes work to keep the streets of Terrax safe, acting as the world’s super-hero police force… or so it seems. Terrible secrets lie deep within the core of Terrax Prime’s hero program, and one man will do whatever he can to bring those secrets to the surface…
Enter Aiden Grant, the Hero Hunter. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction (August 2018)

Sorceress Super Hero
by Darius Brasher
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
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)
