Publisher's Summary

Felix would like nothing more than to take a vacation. A long one. One where he didn’t have to wake up every morning and worry over casualty lists for the day.

Ever since he and the Legion had been forced to flee their headquarters four years previous, nothing had gone quite right. In fact, Felix and the Legion have been locked in a shadow war with enemies unknown. Ones with magic that could carve through their technology easily.

As the rest of the world fell apart, tearing itself to pieces at every turn with the return of the old gods, the Legion has held the chaos back. The price in blood has been climbing slowly, lately.

Felix suspects there’s a change on the horizon. One that he hasn’t prepared or developed a plan for. Or so his paranoia has been telling him. That there’s a change coming now that’ll shake up the world. One that will turn it inside out, Legion and Felix along with it.

Felix has decided it’s time to push ahead and act. To finish things and protect his people at the same time. To take his Legion and make it safe.

Because that’s all that matters in the end to him. His Legion. And it always came first.

Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

Lacking compared to book 1 and 2

I did not enjoy this book as much as the first two. The story changed from a superhero story to an interdimensional epic. Too many new characters introduced and the old ones mainly forgotten or mentioned in passing. I feel like a lot of the story up to now was thrown out and a new direction was taken. Also, too many beautiful women that all want to sleep with Felix.

waiting for book 4

I love listening to books narrated by Nick Podehl. I found this series and devoured it in a week. I love the way the characters interact with each other and how Nick has a different voice for each person. cant wait for the next book

Good story

I just love that kind of ending. The romance is really smooth and not to heavy.The gods elements in the story are well writen and easy to understand.

This was a ride and a half!

The best of the trilogy by far, big happenings! big reveals... questions I had from book one finally answered. Clearly a non-ending ending, I cannot wait to see what the culmination may be... eventually ;)

Interesting choice in escalation.

The hardest thing to have for a good (meaning effective) protagonist is an appropriate foil for them and well when you're facing off against literal Gods... you're gonna be in the corner. Yes there was the stereotypical "You've lost, now let me tell you why." moment, but even the characters make note of how stupid that is... also sort of nice seeing them loop some original villains back into the ongoing mix. Looking very much forward to seeing where Legion goes next... also Runner is an arse, but I can't help but smile to myself every time he shows up.

Far left field

It’s more like a horny 17 year old Boys wet dream; all the relationships go to hell. This is the first series I read of his loving the first two books but the main plot I see in book three is need more wife’s.

Narrator nailed it!!

Nick Podehl did a great job. Very few people could create the masterpiece he has done. As for the author William D. Arand, he created a series that falls together so perfectly. I can’t wait for the next one.

Getting weird

This is the one that starts to get too weird. The other two were very silly but still grounded to some sort of reality. This one goes off the rails and dumps any of the plot or story from the first two

Too Ambitious for Its Own Good

After listening to the Selfless Hero and Wild Waste series, it was evident the author was trying to incorporate all his series and possibly other author's in some kind of interconnecting universes. However, it's gotten to the point where I feel the author don't really know how to finish his own work. Everything just ends in a cliffhanger over and over again.

Super Sales on Super Heroes was possibly one of my top 10 series, but this third book really ruined it. It acted more of an after story for the series Wild Waste than it is a conclusion to Super Sales on Super Heroes. Almost half the book was focus on Felix's involvement with the other world. The focus of the characters shifted from the characters we know and love and focuses on characters taken from Wild Waste also. I am all for a harem set up, but this is ridiculous. The author spent 2 books to develop the relationships and romances of Felix and his women, then all of a sudden the author just throws in characters from Wild Waste, and they took over the show. The Andreas' adorable interactions and presence was all, but gone. No further development was given to Felix and Kit aside from a few short conversations. Miu was treated like nothing more than a pawn. And Lily, my favorite of all, was pushed to the side as some kind of a mistress rather than the leader of the girls as she always have been.

Secondly, unless you've read Wild Waste and Selfless Hero, a lot of characters and events feel out of place. It's almost a shameless ploy to make readers read these other series just to understand what is going on. If it was mentioned here and there, I wouldn't mind so much, but it was literally the focus of this last book.

And lastly, despite being the final book of the series, it leaves you with almost ZERO answers. Just another ploy by the author for the readers to invest into reading his future series whether it'll be bad or good. It's a bit insulting truth be told.

More Mythical Fantasy Than Super Anymore

The reason I started an Audible subscription was book one of this series. having said that, it was a bit of a chore to finish this one. With the merging of Arand's different universes, the fantasy elements have taken over and there's very little being done by the superhumans and too much elf, dragon, dryad stuff. Additionally, while there were traces of a harem in the other books, Felix has become a begrudging sex object to just about every female he knows in this book. It just got so tedious and the new characters didn't really stand out as individuals because of it beyond Felicity and Goldie.

Also, the series is falling heavily into a pattern. Set up new stuff > mysterious entity in charge of the government starts messing with Legion for reasons that have yet to be revealed > big mess of a battle at the end in which Felix doesn't use his power. In fact, the end of this one feels just like a rehash of book two.

Missing explanations and depth.

First off, i love the concept, and the story. But starting with book 1 to now book 3, there are so many loose ends. I'm missing explanations, character progress and a sense of understanding. It feels like the story is going from one extreme to another, which I think is a shame. The story is being told in a very nice way by Nick. I'm hoping the next book won't be so hastily made and will have more depth to it.

harem full steam ahead

Loved books 1 and 2 but this one starts getting really heavy into a massive harem and it is taking away from the story, sadly it looks like it will be even worse in book 4.

Where are the heroes?

I'm afraid there was too much politicking to truly enjoy this one. although, it is nice to continue the cross universe story.

great performance, poor story

I loved the first two books in the series. they always had a bit of the teenage harem lonely guy fantasy in the background but it was easy to ignore. this book however all that is front and center. it really is a pity cause I loved the first two.

So close but no cigar..

Very interesting concept with exceptionally poor execution. The guy has a God like power. Has the God of gods literally rooting for him. An infinite amount of resources (Including people) and he spends half the book caught up in boring legal debacles.... And the other half is him trying to figure out why ALL other gods are suppressing him and his powers. But of corse they can’t actually do anything to him. A dozen literal GODS can’t stop one mortal dude.... He also just has copious amounts of women throwing themselves at him despite him being a complete bore outside of his superpower.
Everything seems like the author just wrote down all his teenage wet dreams and called it a book. All the power he could want. Endless money. And orgies at his beck and call.
I actually enjoyed the first book and was excited to see where the story went. Unfortunately the author seemed more concerned with throwing fan service at his readers instead of exploring any sort of deeper story.

lost the rpg style writing

story line was great but what the first books had that was truly amazing was the detail in each person's upgrades and how it changed their powers it happens like 2-3 times in this book and it was just a touch and go.

No Growth, same plot as before

I was disappointed as this has an almost identical plot as book 2, introduce new characters, some hidden threat, major conflict where Felix finds a way to survive, and unresolved/unexplained plot lines at the end. I can understand following a formula, but make some progress in the overarching plot. There are many plot lines from book 1 and book 2 that were left as cliffhangers that are ignored in favor of starting new threads that half way through I was wondering if the author had lost his notes.

The main character Felix was never a "good" guy, but now he acting like a mob boss (bribery, fixing elections, robbery) and it makes him unlikable to the point that I was half rooting for him to fail. I also found it disappointing that at one point there is to be an election in 3 months and the main character's first reaction was to gerrymander the election, which even in a fantasy world it seem unlikely someone could alter the voting districts in 3 months. To me it came off as lazy writing that could have been better used to address the many dangling plot lines, such as why everyone is after Felix.

The first books had an interesting premise and second book advanced it, but book three left me feeling disappointed.
