    4.5/5 MONSTERS AMONG MEN is the second installment of the Pantheon Saga by C.C. Ekeke and a book that I immediately purchased after finishing the first one. This book was originally the second half of the first volume and manages to carry on the plot of Titan's murder as well as the development of its protagonists. The Pantheon Saga follows three individuals: new superhero Greyson, intrepid reporter Quinn, and teen powerhouse Hugo as they deal with the fallout from Titan's death.

This book was originally the second half of the first volume and manages to carry on the plot of Titan's murder as well as the development of its protagonists. The Pantheon Saga follows three individuals: new superhero Greyson, intrepid reporter Quinn, and teen powerhouse Hugo as they deal with the fallout from Titan's death. The premise is that the world's greatest hero was killed by a magnetic pulse that gave him a stroke. His former archenemy, Lord Borealis, was arrested and is now set to be executed for the crime. However, there's ample evidence that someone else was responsible for the crime. Unfortunately, the Vanguard have closed ranks and are torn between believing the simple answer versus those who think it might have been one of their fellow superheroes. This is a significantly stronger installment than its predecessor and I liked Age of Heroes a great deal. Basically, the stakes are higher and the character development is stronger. Several characters go in directions that I didn't expect and the book is all the better for it. Basically, the writer is not afraid to make characters irredeemable and redeem others that you wouldn't expect to be the good guys. Greyson's story is the strongest in this book despite the fact it was the weakest in the previous one. A terrible disaster happens at the start of the book and it results in him becoming a wanted fugitive. His burning anger that he'd been using superheroism to sublimate doesn't go away when he's forced into retirement and the attempts to "help" him deal with his guilt only make things worse. I especially liked Lauren's "betrayal" as she thinks she's helping him but does something that is truly unforgivable. Hugo's story is also fascinating as he is slowly lured into becoming a juvenile delinquent verging on supervillain due to the fact he's met a beautiful teenage girl that wants him to join her gang. His anger is every bit as deep as Greysons and the continued abuse he gets at school is slowly driving him insane. At any point, losing control could result in a lot of his (admittedly terrible) classmates being killed. It's a surprising source of tension. Quinn's story is continuing her investigation into the death of Titan and the possibility that one of his teammates were involved. Sadly, I feel her story was the weakest of the three due to the fact both Greyson and Hugo suffer dramatic tragic events that change their lives. Quinn comes close but the story always seems to walk back the worst of the consequences. The book reveals some of the darker side of superheroes with some explicit references to the #MeToo movement that makes the story all the stronger. It's not just that one of the superheroes is a complete scumbag but that his fellow "heroes" looked the other way while he was behaving in such a despicable manner. I felt that was distressingly realistic and it's well handled in this book. This book wraps up most of the plotlines introduced in the first book and sets up the plotlines for the second. Really, if both of them had been combined into one book then it would be a straight 5 out of 5 for me. However, this does feel like the latter half of a larger book. Still, the action was good, the characters well-written, and the story entertaining.

    (a few spoilers below) The Story was engaging for sure. And certainly worth reading. But the dialogue is atrocious and there's a bit of inconsistency with the morals in the story which is a bit hard to stomach. Titan is a disgusting pig because he slept around with groupies (who were all consenting adults) but Serif, who is engaged to another man yet is having sex with a 17 year old kid behind her fiance's back is somehow noble and sympathetic because.. you know... "me too!" and "grrrrrl power!" It (a few spoilers below) The Story was engaging for sure. And certainly worth reading.

    Plenty of twists and turns Wow! To think I almost stopped reading the first book because the pace was to slow. What a mistake that would have been. This blows Age of Heroes away. That was three different people being focused on the eventually merge into one large story. Quinn, Grayson and Hugo were three unrelated people. Well as the story goes on it fast becomes a small world. Their lives all become intertwined. Monsters Among Men is fast paced and thrilling. I could hardly stop reading.

Well as the story goes on it fast becomes a small world. Their lives all become intertwined. Monsters Among Men is fast paced and thrilling. I could hardly stop reading. Plenty of curves, twists and turns. A murder mystery thrown in. Lots of supers. These superheroes aren't like Superman. More like Hollywood and all the dirty little secrets. None of these characters are even close to perfect. They are what superheroes would be in real life. Lustful, violent, vicious, conniving. You name it. Is there a hero among them? There is. Not all of these characters are rotten. Quite a lot in this book are though. Some to from good to bad and vice versa. This author shows that having superpowers would be anything but a piece of cake. Already purchased book three. This was an immensely enjoyable read. I would highly recommend it. If I have any complaint it is the names this author gives some of these people. Some of them just don't seem real. Like a state name. Anyways if you are into the superhero genre this is an absolute must read. You will not be disappointed.

    Sequel to Age of Heroes, really the 2nd half of that story. Titan, the world's greatest hero, has been murdered. Again, we have 3 different storylines going, with the main one being reporter Quinn's investigation into the prime suspect of Titan's murder, a former super villain, being innocent of the crime. I actually got really sucked into this story and the world of super heroes that Ekeke created. I thought the two books would be a fun read, and I was rewarded.

    YA with a BUT No question but that this is for the late teen. If I'm pushed, I'd also say that the author goes to an awful lot of trouble to mention that this is a black person or this is a coffee coloured person. Beware, this leads to things like "Noddy" being banned. Dispite the blatant aiming at YA, it is a good read with not too many shudders at the fragility of the teenager. Good imagination here!

    I’m very impressed by this series, it manages to visit all the appropriate tropes without wallowing in them. The characters are solid, the situations suitably dramatic and the battles exhilarating. That being said, I can live without reading the words “powerwalking” and “dickmatized” anymore. Otherwise, solid well crafted superhero prose.

    Wonderful novel Don't start reading unless you have time to read. This book is hard to put down. Lots of super hero and villain action. With mystery and murder. Great action and fight scenes.

    Great story, a few surprise twists at the end. Excellent story, and I loved the three-pronged approach. There were some surprising twists at the end, including Greyson, Lady Liberty, and Titan’s killer. I still want to know who Geist is though.

    The first one was okay, but I'm just not interested enough to put up with the poor editing or the young angst of teen superheroes. The first one was okay, but I'm just not interested enough to put up with the poor editing or the young angst of teen superheroes.

    I like it I had a wide variety of emotions which I feel a good book should be able to do. If you don't care about the characters there's no point in reading the book, well done!!!

    Not perfect, by any means, but a really unique take on superheroes. Ekeke keeps you on your toes and creates really dynamic characters.

    Still mostly Y/A fiction Story gets a bit darker than book one with a lot more superhero action. Still chocked full of high schooler drama and angst but readable.

    In the first volume, it was difficult to tell which character was going to end up in which role -- hero or villain. In this one, those roles are defined, and the definition is a logical progression of existing character traits, which is nice.
