    If you really, really love this genre, this is probably a pretty good book. Nothing new in it, just the same old, same old. People are turning into superheroes and the government wants them (surprise, surprise!). Full of tales of the enhanced abilities of these people, artificial intelligence and government conspiracies.....not really my favorite thing to read. The narrator seemed to be a little rushed and I found it hard to concentrate and really listen a lot of the time. I think I would enjoy th If you really, really love this genre, this is probably a pretty good book. Nothing new in it, just the same old, same old.

    Not a bad read at all. Great characters and humanity from an artificial life form. Not an eloquent review, just a review. Sorry. Lol. The review is the title of the review. I will not give out details of the book. Oh, why not? There are confused people involved, some of them reluctantly super. There are governments involved, (when are there not?) Oh, technology is there too, no, not a calculator. That's it. The story. Gotta love it Not a bad read at all. Great characters and humanity from an artificial life form.

    OH NO HE DIDN'T!! I loved everything about this book, well except that he ended too FAST! The White bombed, the president and all of his cabinet killed from an alien invasion, and now a small percent of the population suddenly gets special powers? THANK GOODNESS THERE'S A SEQUEL!

    Vanguard makes no bones about taking its cues from classic comic books. The heroes have strong, individual personalities; the bad guys have well-defined reasons to be bad, and the power to make themselves a genuine threat; there are nearly as many personality conflicts as physical confrontations; characters change sides, and betray each other (or do they?); each chapter is a complete story, with subplots threading through all of them, right up to the big blowout finale; melodrama and action abou Vanguard makes no bones about taking its cues from classic comic books. The heroes have strong, individual personalities; the bad guys have well-defined reasons to be bad, and the power to make themselves a genuine threat; there are nearly as many personality conflicts as physical confrontations; characters change sides, and betray each other (or do they?); each chapter is a complete story, with subplots threading through all of them, right up to the big blowout finale; melodrama and action abound - in a good way. Basically, this book is exactly what it looks like on the cover - a classic sort of superhero story that just happens to be in prose rather than in comics. If that sounds like something you'd be into, give it a shot. I had a lot of fun reading it, and I was especially impressed with how Constantine was able to bring everything together at the end, give us a satisfying conclusion, and then in only a couple of pages, craft a cliffhanger that has me anxious to read Season 2.

    An excellent tale based on comic-book type characters. The author fleshes out his heroes a lot better than most comic-book writers do these days, however. It's an excellent buy in either Kindle or paperback formats. Buy it! Read it! An excellent tale based on comic-book type characters.

    Good classIc comic book Great as a comic book, the tropes are a bit tired. If you're looking for a book adaptation of a classic comic book it's good.
