About Chris Strange

Chris Strange is a writer of urban fantasy and other fantastika. He is especially fond of writing hardboiled stories with a noir influence. His goal is to deliver intense, humorous and sometimes dark stories to his readers.

In his spare time, Chris is an unapologetic geek, spending far too long wrapped up in speculative fiction books, watching old zombie movies and playing computer games. He lives in the far away land of New Zealand, and occasionally he goes to university like he’s supposed to.

He doesn’t plan on growing up any time soon.

First off let me say I really enjoyed this book! It was fasted paced, and action packed with a lot of interesting detail!
But I also need to say that, since it was a book about superheroes, I thought it might also be good for kids…and I’m glad I read it before recommending it to a young person as I feel it has some strong language and some very awkward and unnecessary sex scenes that make it unsuitable for kids!!
Back to my liking the story…I really enjoyed the relationship between Spook and The Carpenter a lot! It was very real. Both having loved ones that were scared and angry to have them go off and fight, or maybe just not feeling involved enough, these are things that, it seems, may happen. Or the fact that they, especially Spook, didn’t always feel like doing the “right” thing for people that hated meta humans and didn't want them around for the most part. Made them easy to relate to.
All the characters were very well flushed out with interesting back-stories.
