If you loved your superhero tales as a child, then this grown up version from two of the hottest Team Seattle Urban Fantasy Authors really will keep you happy. It doesn't pull any punches as romance, vengeance, larceny and the lines of heroism/villainy become blurred by the slant placed upon the cast by the media. Whilst I am more of a fan of Ennis' The Boys type fiction this offering really does do what the genre a huge favour with its presentation. Beautifully written with two principle protagonista's you really can't get quite enough of backed up with great prose solid dialogue and women who know how to kick butt and its something that many will get a real blast out of.

Great book, loved the first, second's just as good. Easily carries 3 simultaneous story lines (even if the normal's story is a little dull).
The Icarus universe is expanded and neatly woven in to the fabric of our own. Raises the issues of good versus evil, destiny and genetic predispositions amoung others.
Love the characters, love the plot, it's a shame I found it on sale in a supermarket rather than in a book store or library.
