About Alquir Black

It's been almost ten years of writing.
It began as a hobby, publishing for free, bringing Aaron, Luke and Dalton to life, and then fans suggested a crossover. And so Heroes United was born.
Now, it's been two amazing years of self-publishing, two years of amazing reviews and a lot of love from readers, and I can't thank you enough for all of your support.
It is time to go on now, to create something new.
New stories full of romance and tension, full of action scenes and heart-breaking moments, full of incredible characters and fun for you.
Diamond Girl is just the beginning, because I have returned.
My name is Alquir Black, a Mexican boy with a dream... And a lot of cats.

This book has everything that I want from a great superhero story. Great characters, action and powers. The plot is a little bit thin but it still definitely holds up. It feels a little bit slow in the beginning, but maybe it is because the author knew not everyone would read the origins saga (I only read the lost prine)

Let me sprint right to the point. Heroes United has it all. And then some. Six superheroes for the price of one book, and they are not even the superhero stereotype, they are unique, each one has a specific personality you will love or hate. Amber, Ian, Kim, Aaron, Dalton and Luke are finally together, it’s all I saw in my head when I imagined a book that brought together the separate stories in one shiny, stupendously exciting package.
What I didn’t like is the fact Balicus was not as a big villain as I expected, but, the epilogue is awesome, Toxic will steal the show for sure in the next book, or so I wish.

The author has been building to this book, painstakingly introducing many of Heroes United’s key players in what has amounted to three prequels: Blue Blood, Prisoner of a witch and The lost prince. If some of those chapters seemed a little non-related when read as stand-alones, Heroes United has redeemed their existence. This book has the potential to revitalize the superhero book genere. Heroes United has raised the bar to a level where the more "traditional" approach of having a single superhero tangle with a supervillain or two may no longer be enough.
The core appeal of Heroes United has been the gathering of heroes, although at first the stories seem a bit unrelated, it begins to make its way to the plot after the first chapter, perhaps the author knew some wouldn’t read the first trilogy (which I highly recommend, it is worth it even now that it has a price) and thus imagined it would be nice to explain each character independently before gathering them together, and it is also great because, if you read the first trilogy, now you know what happened after (or before) those stories and also shows a completely different point of view about the destruction of Rothland.
Ultimately, Heroes United is all about action. The main storyline is pretty basic. The most impressive thing Alquir does with the plot is to provide all the characters sufficient time and keep the book from becoming an excuse to sell you a crossover story. The tsunami part in which half of San Francisco is destroyed works so well because we care about the heroes and because attention is paid to the little details and each one of them.
Last but not least, there is an unexpected casualty among the heroes which is surprising and reveals the possible plot of the sequel. In conclusion, a great book, a fresh reading and awesome way to begin a book series. Little spoiler here, Toxic’s appearance is just epic.

These heroes are not the usual stereotype and that is what makes the book so great. We are introduced to the characters fast enough to understand each one of them. The main character, Amber, is relatable, however, the other heroes are just as important as her. It is nice how the author managed to gather them together naturally and give them an equally important role for the story. The main plot is simple, an alien invasion, but the relationships are the best part of it. There is something about this book that makes you feel like this is just the beginning and that is great because, after I read the epilogue, I felt the need to wait for the next book to know what happened next. I recommend to read the Heroes united origins series (which is free) before reading this book to fully understand it.
