Publisher's Summary

Ethan Pierce is just another tech support rep when he gets electrocuted, allowing him to generate electricity. As he recovers from his accident, he and his girlfriend, Emma, witness a drive-by shooting in the city of Olympia. They soon learn it was related to the Martelli crime family. The ruthless Martellis run the city and don't like to leave loose ends.

Fearful of the threat of the family, Ethan and Emma try to lay low, but it's no use. When Emma is attacked, Ethan uses his newfound lightning abilities to become Fuse, Olympia's "man in black." 

Fueled by vengeance and empowered by his new abilities, Ethan vows to find the man who attacked Emma and get justice. But will his powers be enough to save her?

Fantastic Story

This story sounded familiar at first and I finally realized that the premise is similar to a video game called Infamous that I played years ago. This story is very well written and flawlessly narrated. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment.

Surprisingly deep and dark. I loved it!

The story follows a tech geek guy named Ethan Pierce who unexpectedly gains superpowers. I was surprised at how dark and deep this was, with a criminal underbelly to rival the likes of Gotham city.

An Enjoyable Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, and found it very entertaining. One strike of lightning or one moment in the wrong place can change your life forever, as Ethan discovers . His very normal life is turned upside down and his goals change drastically as he learns to control his new powers. This tale is filled with interesting characters, suspense, lots of action and some humour, making it very enjoyable. I wasn't expecting it to end the way it did, so I'm looking forward to Book 2.

Quite entertaining

I enjoyed the story very much. The characters were easy to get to know and it has some twists and turns in the plot I didn't expect. The ending definitely left you hanging too. Looking forward to book 2!

Not your average super hero

This is the first book by this author that I have read, or well listened to and I must say that the characters and world building are very entertaining. The rise of a new super hero surrounded by suspense and a ton of action made it enjoyable. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

Great modern superhero story

It is an entertaining story of a young man discovering new abilities. He is a relatable character I was ruooting for from the begninning. It is as good as the better series' I see on TV. It was reminiscent of Daredevil at times.

The villian was intimidating. I know he's not the main focus as we get introduced to Fuse. Maybe as we continue, we'll get a more fleshed out bad guy.

A Super Hero is Born

Nicholas P. Dunker does a fantastic job reading this book. He brings the amazing characters, created by David Neth, to life. FUSE is the story of an everyday person who encounters dangerous situations. Has an occasional word that you might not want children to hear. Fun story.
