Book Description

Jay is having a pretty bad day at school. His popular cheerleader girlfriend just dumped him and a jock spilled soda all over his brand new Nikes. So when the God of Rabbits recruits him to save the world from an invasion of interstellar cockroaches, it seems like it might be a pretty cool gig.

Unfortunately, in the spectrum of god-like abilities, rabbits rank pretty low, and Jay receives the ability to make snarky wisecracks, jump real high, and . . . that’s about all.

With all other superheroes snapped up by the Cockroach God and his minions running rampant in the extradimensional Gods’ Home, Jay and his newfound ally Bluebird are the only two unlikely heroes left to defend humanity.

We are doomed . . .

About the Author

Ian Thomas Healy is a prolific writer who dabbles in many different speculative genres. He's a ten-time participant and winner of National Novel Writing Month where he's tackled such diverse subjects as sentient alien farts, competitive forklift racing, a religion-powered rabbit-themed superhero, cyberpunk mercenaries, cowboy elves, and an unlikely combination of vampires with minor league hockey. His popular superhero fiction series, the Just Cause Universe, is ever-expanding, as is his western fantasy epic The Pariah of Verigo. He is also the creator of the Writing Better Action Through Cinematic Techniques workshop, which helps writers to improve their action scenes. Ian also created the longest-running superhero webcomic done in LEGO, The Adventures of the S-Team, which ran from 2006-2012. When not writing, which is rare, he enjoys watching hockey, reading comic books (and serious books, too), and living in the great state of Colorado, which he shares with his wife, children, house-pets, and approximately five million other people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A backhanded complement. 8 Jun. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OK, as with about half of my reviews. This one will be a bit backhanded.
First off, originally I just rolled my eyes over this book. I had pretty much decided there was zero chance I was going to read this much less PAY for it.
I suffered from insomnia last night and decided after reading a blurb for about the 100th time in the last few months that whatever, I'd give it a shot.
I read the introduction by Drew Hayes, and I am really glad I did. That little two page blurb really put me in the right frame of mind to enjoy the book for what it is.
To give a bastardized shortened version: This is an homage to the founding age of comics. It's a bit of a lampoon in its own right. It's not meant to be taken as a super serious work. It's meant to be a lighthearted romp and a bit irreverent.
Once I started the book I couldn't put it down. Note: It took about two chapters to really get going. By the time your half way through it you'll be reading Jay's glib comments with a goofy grin on your face.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fast-paced novel. 18 Nov. 2014
By C.R. Asay - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Fun teenage superhero book. The characters are typical teens, with a fast-talking Bluebird and a wisecracking Jackrabbit who have just become superheroes and need to save the world from alien bugs. Add on some Greek Gods (some we've never heard of--like the god of rabbits) and you have a quick-paced, candy bar novel. My one criticism of the book is the dialogue of Bluebird. Teen girls say "like" a lot and it bugs me as much in real life as it did in the book. Overall a very entertaining read! The author is mighty talented in creating a solid plot, setting and characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars great expantion 11 Jun. 2014
By Robert Sobocinski - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ian Thomas Healy expands his Just Cause Universe further with this fun read that introduces new characters and concepts to the Super Hero genre. With the new characters taking center stage, like with Deep Six, the Just Cause characters take step back as supporting rolls and let the new kids shine

5.0 out of 5 stars Best chapter of the JCU yet! 16 Jan. 2015
By Tim McCurley - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
No spoilers here that you won't find in the item description, but let me start with this: I have read pretty much everything this author has put on the market (including ALL his Just Cause Universe books now) and this is by far my favorite. Weird, right? So many great superhero stories and I chose the one with the Cockroach god and the teenager chosen by the god of Rabbits?

Healy has taken a great approach here, and by that I mean he has taken a chance writing from an angle that many dismiss. He adds a lot of humor to the story of a teen thrust into a situation so far beyond his control that it is staggering. From girlfriend woes one minute to saving the planet the next, Jay finds himself head over (proverbial) tail in trouble. How he gets out of it is entertaining and imaginative, and Healy manages to capture the emotions as well as the action.

One of the best things about this story is that it has the feel of an old-school comic, with grandiose action and over-the-top fight scenes, villains most foul and heroes most clueless.

Take a chance on Jackrabbit, folks. After all, he's out there to save us all!
