He seeks the help of Sophia Dennison, Earth’s original superhuman, to train his team, but she doesn’t want to be overly involved in the world war between heroes and villians. With a team of people that Rogers considers to be meer babies with superhuman powers – a team that is not ready to fight – he is forced to take all of them straight to ground zero as supernatural satanic worshippers tear Manhattan and other heroes to shreds. As the supernatural war continues to rage, the connections and emotional bonds between these superhero team members and even Ms. Dennison may surprise you while the supsenseful ferocious action will make your heart race and keep your mind on its mental toes. And, the final pages will leave you waiting with bated breath for more.

But, Ewers interweaves the depth of friendship, love, and a powerful sense of team in a way that reminds you, the reader, that good will somehow always prevail over evil. He even brings into play snippets of unexpected humor as well as unexpected personal challenges for the characters.
