Great read, one of the best novels I have read this year!!!!
The use of sport teams as a back drop for a superhero team was strange at first. But really how many of us idolize and hero worship a particular athlete or sport teams.
The author told the story from a POV point of several characters never really setting up a main protagonist from the novel's perspective. Yet for each character along the way you manage to get a feel for each as a person. The flaws as well as the good attributes. I think this was one of the most outstanding parts of the entire book as it allowed me to really empathize with each one as a person.
As far as length and or pace of the novel I was basically hooked from the start to finish with a few surprises thrown in that I didn’t quite see coming. The story line never suffered from a slow pace or got lost somewhere in the middle loosing the reader’s interest. You will keep reading to see what comes next!
