This isn't just another super-hero story, though it has all the needed elements. It is the story of real heroes, super or not, who go out to do what must be done because it is their moral duty as human beings. Confessor could have angst the night away but didn't, he had a world to save. A true hero to the core, never stopped to think about himself. You'll get no higher level of true heroism than in 'Confession'. One of those rare books that leave you thinking for days. Running the story back and forth in your mind to see how all the pieces fit together so perfectly.
