Publisher's Summary

The conclusion of the Amazon and Audible best-selling Halfhero series. 

When The Deterrent comes out of hiding and kidnaps the titans, it triggers the biggest manhunt in history. On one side, the military might of the United States and Air Commodore Fiona Bardock, Britain’s most talented investigator. On the other, three halfheroes, one human and a puddle of slime. 

Daniel Harbin hopes to get through this alive and track down the children he never knew existed. What no one realises is they’re about to confront the greatest danger of all.

Entertaining narration

I don’t typically write reviews but this entire series had me hooked. I was just compelled to read (or listen, I should say) them all. The storyline was a bit far fetched in spots but as books should do, I was thoroughly entertained. The narration of the characters was well done. The dialogue of the characters was hilarious!

ending felt rushed

it was a good book. The ending felt a little rushed, as if the author ran out of words. Worthy of being listened to again though

Satisfying Conclusion to a Suprisingly Good Series

This wrapped up the story in a satisfying way. It actually resolved all the loose ends, while introducing a new component that didn't feel tacked on in any way.
I really wouldn't have thought I'd be this happy after listening to a three book series about "superheroes", but here we are. Mr. Sainsbury is proving to be an author worth buying his books first, then reading the summary later. His stuff isn't high brow literature, but it doesn't try to be. This is well-written, popcorn, summer beach read type stuff. And it's free of the "groaners" I find so common in that type of book.

Outstanding narrator

I started reading everything I could find by Ian W. Sainsbury , after I found the World Walker series, so I started the Halfhero series and I want to say , I am extremely impressed with Jonathan McGarrity . He made these last 2 books in the Halfhero series much better than they would have been. He is outstanding with his dialects and voices and would love to see much more of his works . The Halfhero series Is a great read , made even better by an outstanding narrator
