“If adventure has another name, it must be Van Allen Plexico!”  –David Michelinie, legendary creator of Venom and writer of the Avengers and Spider-Man!

The power-mad Warlord stands poised to conquer – or destroy – the universe itself. Can anyone stand in his way? Enter the Sentinels: College student, Lyn LiPulsar!  Brilliant inventor, and total jerk, Esro Brachis! Beloved national hero, (and amnesiac!), Ultraa! Flamboyant showman, Damon Sinclair- Cavalier! And mysterious alien cyborg, Vanadium! When at last they all clash atop the Warlord’s floating city, can the world itself survive??

The Sentinels Superhero Novels series by award-winning author Van Allen Plexico (Lucian; Hawk; Vegas Heist) now runs 9 volumes and comes to Audible, performed by Pete Milan (Vegas Heist). It harkens back to the great Avengers, Justice League and X-Men stories in the comics of yesteryear, but with a modern sensibility and an anything-can-happen approach. Superhero adventure at its best!

“Grandiose storytelling done with gusto and panache.” –Ron Fortier, Pulp Fiction Reviews

“Nobody–not even Abnett and Lanning– is doing cosmic superheroes as well as Van Allen Plexico is doing them. Period.” –Barry Reese, creator of the Rook

    I normally listen to cozy mysteries but fancied a change. I have never been into comics but I have watched the Avengers films so thought I would given this book ago. Glad I did because I enjoyed it and have already downloaded the next book in the series. It is action packed and didn’t let up until the end, very much like the film’s. It is a real good against evil battle with the old character you are not to sure of. From the sample and the picture I did think the story was going to be more of a tounge in check story but that wasn’t the case, it did have some nice one liners but was more action than comedy.
    A new team of super heroes is forming just in the nick of time because they will have to fight the most deadliest villain earth has ever seen. The Warlord is back and looking for more power to control his minions using mind control and he has discovered a power source currently in the care of Esro Brachis, a brilliant inventor and friends and mentor to three other super hero’s. Lyn a college student who only recently found out she had powers, Ultraa a hero with no past and memory but a civilian hero and Damon a ladies man with an eye to fame. Can they stop the Warlord dead in his tracks? Or is there more going on than even he knows?
    I liked the narrator and thought he put his voice to good use giving each character very different sounding voices.
