Smashwords book reviews by R Kain

  • Confessions of a D-List Supervillan on Dec. 02, 2012

    Easily worth the read. This is easily material well suited for a trilogy, starting with a mind-control end of the world and ending in a bang. Looking at the world through the villian's eyes is always an experience, and seeing how heroes look from their angle is even more so.
