I love superhero stories. The superhero story is kind of timeless. This one … this one is sadly less so.
Series: The Aluria Adventures
Author: Tyler Cook
Published: Moonshine Press, 2016
My Rating: ★
In order to save his teenage crush, Jason Conner allows an extra-terrestrial spirit, named Aluria, to inhabit his body. At that moment, Jason vowed to protect the innocent and hunt down the guilty, avenging those that were tragically taken from him.
But while Jason thought that his first enemy, Raiz, was long deceased, the evil sorcerer returns to Canton to obtain what Jason robbed him of: A magical item that grants anyone who possesses, it infinite power.
Aluria is the first in a series that tells a story about heroism, love and hope.
Tyler Cook’s Aluria is a fantasy superhero novel about orphan Jason Connor and the love of his life, Tessa. After the pair is attacked by an evil wizard known as Raiz, Jason fuses his soul with the spirit Aluria to gain Aluria’s powers. After ten years of training, Jason returns to protect his home city of Canton and defeat Raiz. It’s an interesting premise, but a story’s premise is only the foundation.
