Three superheroes in love! Or one superhero, one former sidekick, and one redeemed supervillain, at least.
Ryan, John, and Holiday have been partners — in every sense of the word — for two years. They’ve saved the world, fallen in love, and remodeled the secret base to include bookshelves and a bigger bed.
But Ryan and John have always been the public face of the team. The world still believes Holiday’s a villain. And he’s been using that reputation to stay undercover and share information. Tonight, though, Holiday comes home injured, and his partners aren’t sure the mission’s worth his life.
Sundown, Holiday, Beacon is a quirky little story with lots of potential. It has great characters with an interesting backstory.
The world build and the narration were hard to follow, and I had trouble sympathizing with Sundown, Holiday, and Beacon. One thing I didn’t doubt was their love for each other.
I enjoyed how they took care of each other and how true their life story felt. Even when it was hard to figure out their age or who was speaking.
The action seemed a bit slow, chop at times, but I did wanted to learn more about their adventures. Perhaps the next book will round up their story.
The cover by Natasha Snow is simple but it goes with the story. It screams superheroes, and it gives a sense of an impending battle.
