Where There's Smoke

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Panopolis is a rough place to be an average Joe. I came here looking for adventure and excitement, but nobody cares about one more normal guy in a city filled with super-powered heroes. The closest I’ve come to glory is working in a bank that villains often rob. But then I maybe accidentally-on-purpose helped a villain escape the hero who was trying to save the day. More

About the Series: Panopolis
Panopolis, the City of Heroes: a place where exciting things happen every single day. Things like mad science, reckless public endangerment, corporate espionage, and political puppetry.

You’ve got to wonder, why would anyone ever want to move here?

And once they get here, why would they ever want to stay?

Maybe for the excitement of watching real super-powered Heroes battle it out with Villains every day—preferably from a few hundred yards back. Maybe for the chance to become one of those Heroes, brave and stalwart and always doing the right thing.

Or maybe . . . just maybe . . . some people stay because they prefer to take their chances with a Villain or two.

After so many books and movies about superheroes, reading about the other side was a breath of fresh air in an overused topic. At least, the story, not from the Villain POV, but from a "civilian"!

This is the kind of book you want to read from start to end without pause. The characters are multi-dimensional and some of them didn´t act as I suspect, the story surprised me in the good way lots of times, and it reminded me of the days I watched superheroes cartoons and I asked myself what was about to live in a city like that, full of supers, when you are just a normal person.

The fact every chapter starts with a blog entry (or similar) showing the not-so-nice side of Panopolis, related to the events in the chater following, was a bonus
