Failstate (a.k.a., Robin Laughlin) thought his life would get easier after he’d earned his superhero license. But now a legendary superhero has returned from the dead . . . along with a horde of shambling horrors who want to eat his brains.
New Chayton’s other licensed heroes are indisposed, meaning that the whole weight of protecting the city has fallen on Failstate. And nobody thinks he’s up to the challenge. At least he has help from his older brother, Gauntlet, and his best friend, Veritas. Or does he?
As if the zombie apocalypse weren’t enough, complicating things are not one but two beautiful girls vying for Failstate/Robin’s affections–and his own powers are doing something . . . interesting.
In the superhero business, interesting is bad.
Legends walk the streets of New Chayton. If Failstate can somehow survive the next few weeks, he could become one of them.
In Legends, John W. Otte pens a slam-bang sequel to Failstate. I sat down to sneak a quick peek into the story and didn’t get up until I’d finished it. With a plot that keeps twisting like your favorite roller coaster ride, zombies on the loose, and Failstate’s superpowers doing some surprising things, there’s never a dull moment in Legends.
I loved the first book, so I had high expectations when my copy of Legends came in the mail. And Legends more than surpassed them. Reading about Failstate, Gauntlet, and Veritas felt like hanging out with old friends. And I enjoyed meeting the new cast of characters as well.
world from one major disaster after another, but sometimes it’s the little
things that really count. I loved the way Legends demonstrated this. Failstate
does his fair share of world-saving, but it’s in those little moments of
humility and those little acts of service, that he really shines.
