REVIEWS:

''A GREAT read. Each story is a fresh, new way of looking at superheroes and the detailed writing makes you feel as though your actually there. The book is all around amazing. --Know Your Marvel News

''...a fun book. The contents were well-written, thought provoking, imaginative, and entertaining. I was sorry there were no more stories when I reached the end. If you like comics and superheroes, by all means give this one a try. --Adventures Fantastic

SYNOPSIS:

Like mythical gods of the past, superheroes are a primal force of nature. This thrilling collection of ten original short stories features brand new heroes in action-packed adventures that will grip you and never let go. Each is written by some of the most talented writers today, including DC Comics writer Ricardo Sanchez and Star Trek author Dayton Ward.

"The Mass Grave of John Johnsons" by Micah Urban: The discovery of several bodies prompts a doctor to call in a “super” forensics team that is stranger than the mystery itself.

"Daughter of Nyx" by Kelly Wisdom: In a dystopian future, Veronica hides a unique ability. Then she is attacked and must make a choice--remain in hiding or rise up and fight.

"Going My Own Way" by Dayton Ward: Young Daniel chooses not to follow in the footsteps of his superhero father. That is a decision that may ultimately cost him his life.

"Identity Crisis" by Lisa Gail Green: After Leslie takes the place of her twin sister, the hero SolarFlare, she discovers it’ll take more than a costume to save the city from a mad man.

"Blunt Force Trauma" by Kevin Hosey: When crimefighter, PsyKore, comes out of retirement to find a savage killer, what he ultimately uncovers shatters his entire world.

"Neutral Ground" by Jordan Taylor: A World War I British corporal vows to discover the truth about the rumors of a mysterious man saving wounded soldiers on the battlefield.

"Breaking The Circle" by Derek Tyler Attico: When her superhero husband vanishes, Kendra resolves to discover his fate. Yet her search may lead her to the very edge of her own sanity.

"The Dodge" by K. Stoddard Hayes: Sheriff Wilder owes his fearless reputation to a secret power. But when he and his brother are ambushed, his secret threatens to get them both killed.

"The Justice Blues" by Carla Lee Suson: As the wife of a beloved superhero, Angelica has the perfect life. Then she learns of an evil secret that threatens her marriage--and her life.

"Death and Life of The Hero" by Ricardo Sanchez: A reporter thinks she's discovered what really happened to a deceased superhero. But the truth may cause more harm than good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid, Entertaining Read 14 Sep 2011
By John ONeill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First, some transparency: I am a friendly acquaintance of one of the editors, K. Stoddard Hayes. That being said, I hope no one thinks me biased when I say that Hayes' entry was one of the better stories in this anthology.

Overall, this is a solid, entertaining read; each story has something to add to the body of Western superhero literature, and is just plain enjoyable. Some stories are more literary, some are more (for want of a better descriptive) comic-booky, and there are, to my eyes at least, some definite strata of compositional excellence in the way the various stories are written. But even the least of these is well worth the reader's time and money. Definitely worth purchasing for your home library even if you're not much of a superhero fan.
5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining collection of themed short stories 5 July 2011
By Susan P. Sipal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Gods of Justice is a great collection of entertaining superhero short stories. While I enjoyed them all, I especially liked Lisa Gail Green's story "Identity Crisis" with its wonderful twist on young superheroes.
Leslie is an identical twin living in the shadow of her superhero sister, until she's called upon to use her own awesome powers that she didn't even know she possessed.

Told from the point of view of the less spectacular twin who is literally hiding in her twin's shadow, Green's young heroine must face her insecurities (and the villain) alone, and when she does, discovers that her powers even outshine her sister's. The characterization is richly developed and I found myself cheering on both twins as they saw themselves fresh from each other's perspective.
