Having read the prev 3 ex heroes books, this one has been my least favourite thus far. All the heros are present and accounted for as usual, but for the vast majority of the book they are all 'power-less' and trapped in 'purgatory'. It takes nearly half the book for the story to start to progress at a reasonable pace, but even then, i found it slow going. The ending was great in my opinion, it was just the journey that seemed to drag on a bit. If you have not read any of the other books, I DO NOT recommend that you start with this one; there are lots and lots of referrences to adventures in prev books, so do yourself a favor and start at the beginning. Also, all the previous stories have multiple narrators, which for the characters in this book is a definite must (or it could be i've just gotten too used to it being that way). But this one is done by Jay Snyder solo, which, for all the female characters just didnt do it for me personally. I felt it was a step backwards. Anyway, still a decent read for all you Ex Heros fans, just dont expect quite the same as prev ones. On to book 5!

Great continuation of the story!

If you liked the first book, Ex-Heroes, you're going to enjoy this one. The whole team is back in action and they are up against new (and old) enemies this time. Narration was great as always. Cant wait to dive into book 3!

Great Read/Listen!

Wasnt quite sure what to expect but imagine any zombie franchise meets Marvel universe. Basicaly zombies and superheroes. The narration is a little bit hard to follow at times with all the dialogue between characters but i got used to it pretty quickly. A male and female narrator works very well as there is good mix of character genders. All the heroes are unique and well defined and each has their own dynamic which i really liked. I quickly came to like each one as enjoyed hearing their respective backstory. Solid 5 stars, on to book 2!
