Sometimes the life we’re given isn’t the life we’d choose for ourselves.
For the past five years, Dan Galkin has been lying to everyone about just how ordinary he is. But Dan’s the grandson of The Mad Russian: one of the world’s most powerful, and insane, supervillains. And Dan has powers too. He’s a living battery, able to absorb and discharge electricity with his mind. Normally he keeps his powers hidden, but when the old man returns with an offer to make his grandson heir apparent, any chance at an ordinary life is blown apart.
Miranda Brody thought she wanted to be a pop star, but now she’s got the international profile and the entourage, she doesn’t recognize the Miranda she has become. After getting caught up in the cross-fire between Dan and his grandfather, Miranda realizes there’s more to life than being famous. Staying alive, for example, becomes a high priority. And not falling in love with the pizza boy comes a close second.
Labeled by society, trapped by expectation.
Dan and Miranda might actually be able to change everything.
As long as they don’t kill each other first.
About the Author
Ben Langdon lives and writes in Narrawong, which is at the end of the picturesque Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. He has been a comic book junky since his teenage years, and now has three inspiring heroes of his own: Jack, Eliza and Luca.
Ben writes neo-pulp, which is a fancy term for superhero fiction. He loves the fun and bizarre aspects of early pulp stories, but does so with an underlying respect for the genre. It’s kind of a post-modern treatment. Think beyond the spandex and the superhuman clashes above city streets.
