If you didn’t have your ear to the ground years ago when Peter Clines’ official debut, Ex-Heroes first hit the market (in scant fashion), you likely missed something special. Well, it’s time to rediscover a treasure. Broadway Books will bring this one back to the masses tomorrow, February 26th.
Amazon has a pre-order option for the novel, so you can ensure you stake your claim to a paperback in advance. Want the cherry on top? Of course you do. Here’s the kicker: this one is currently on sale, 36 percent of the MSRP chopped off. That’s right, you can get this one for just $8.98 ($7.99 Kindle Edition), trimmed down from a still very reasonable $14.00.
If you’re a fan of Peter Clines and his wildly active mind (here is a man after my own heart, comic geek to the fullest, dedicated mental adventurer, proud of it all!), this is the must-have buy of the month. There’s a reason New York Times bestselling author Ernest Cline deemed this one “The Avengers meets The Walking Dead with a large order of epic served on the side.” That’s not simple hyperbole folks.
Synopsis: “In Ex-Heroes, it’s zombies versus superheroes—a face-off we’ve never seen before—complete with a cast of fresh, interestingly flawed new heroes that will appeal to even the most jaded comic-book fans and horror junkies. Los Angeles has been devastated by the zombie apocalypse, devoid of human life—except for one last stronghold, the film-studio-turned-fortress known as “The Mount.”
Protecting the city’s last survivors who are huddled within the walls of the Mount are the superheroes Stealth, Gorgon, Regenerator, Cerberus, Zzzap, and The Mighty Dragon. Terrified by the overwhelming responsibility of protecting what may be the last members of the human race and scarred by the horrors they’ve endured, the heroes struggle to hold back the zombie hordes, keep the Mount’s inhabitants alive, and be the symbols of hope the survivors so desperately need. But the heroes are about to learn that the zombies are the least of the threats they now face. Former heroes, their psyches and powers hideously twisted, lurk in the city’s ruins…and just a few miles away from the Mount’s walls waits an enemy with the most terrifying ability imaginable.”
