Jon Davis is a talented writer, that much is evident from his ability to grab and hold the attention, this would have been a four star review,but for one thing, poor editing and grammar. Sometimes the plot line was a little childish or predictable but still enjoyable but the poor quality of editing an the typos in this novel really jar the attention away from the story, a reread will be needed but some of the solutions were a little bit too convenient. All of this being said I would like to see a sequel to this.

I have recently binged on original superhero fiction and I find that this one holds up well and is comparable to the equally excellent 'meta' and 'super powered'.

HASH(0x93f3c828) out of 5 stars Fun read 11 July 2013
By Luke G Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had a lot of fun reading this story. It is a superhero story that has blended classic elements of Gold, Silver and Iron Age comic stories quite nicely. A protagonist with a clear moral framework and strength of character and the initial threat of the meteor are both very much Gold Age in nature. Later on we start to get shades of the Silver-Age with its growing moral complexity. Meanwhile, the seriousness of the battles and the collateral damage and death of innocent bystanders is very much something out of the Iron Age. These elements don't develop one into another like some representation of the development of comics in micro form. No, these elements exist side-by-side as a coherent whole. There are other, specific elements that I could mention, but not without spoiling the story.

The author also handles the first-person perspective very well. In addition, it seems to capture the thoughts of a bright teen rather than a bright adult. Vaughn is intelligent, but he still lacks some level of foresight and complexity of thought that only comes when those parts of the brain finish developing in the early twenties. His thought processes wander and he considers things at times very clearly and at times wanders off on tangents. Very realistic, it makes me wonder if the author has read the literature on the development of thought from childhood to adulthood. Also, the first person perspective makes it easier to combine the of the elements I mentioned previously. Since the world around Vaughn is only described from his perspective, it is possible to have a sea of gray and gray sprinkled with black and white because Vaughn is literally trying to map things along with us. Meanwhile, staying in Vaughn's perspective keeps us within the mind of a person who wants to do the right thing but would also be very happy not to have to be the one to do it.

HASH(0x94ce2330) out of 5 stars ****Age of Power, good reading for fun..** 15 Sept. 2012
By H K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The author Jon Davis writes a detail ordeal of a young boy's journey into challenges and adventures. In the few chapters, it especially enthralls to read passages that describe the falling asteroid. It a story of a superheroes, and is intended for a good read with youngsters. The book is written in an exciting manner in which main character and the story unravels well. It is written nicely, with good dialogues and character interactions. It left me wanting to read more of Jon Davis stories on adventures and superheroes. It is an exciting novel with great story development, character personalities, and I would recommend it for a reading.

HASH(0x94b9dcc0) out of 5 stars Not great, pretty good. 6 Nov. 2012
By Onomatopoeia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just skimmed a one star review that seems to have hinged entirely on the fact that the book uses "yea" instead of "yeah". How pedantic can you get? They're probably jelly. Haters gonna hate.

I liked this book for the most part. There was an excessive use of the word "quip" (in itself an awkward word, but through overuse, extremely annoying) and BJ's character was kind of erratic.

Also the supernames (or whatever you wanna call them) were kinda cheesy, but really that's more a failing of the genre than any given author. If you really think about it, who would be scared by a name like Batman?

Legacy wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination (after all, I didn't write it! :P). But it was quirky. Some of the other reviews mentioned problems with the dialogue, and yeah it was a bit forced at times.

But I've read plenty of superhero genre books and this one is definitely one of the better ones. It had action, it had mystery. The villain was somewhat formulaic (Rule the world, I am a god, blah blah blah), but how she went about her master plan was definitely not something I've come across often, and even after she's defeated parts of her plans can still go off at any time.

Without going into too much detail, the so-called "New Men" were definitely at the top of the list as far as questions of motive were involved. Who are they? How are they involved with the events of the book? Why are they so mysterious? Were they behind the Kardashians' inexplicable rise to stardom?!

And many other questions besides, not all having to do with the New Men. If a sequel is ever released, I'll definitely look into it because this is a very interesting book.

HASH(0x93f3ce10) out of 5 stars Teenage of power 9 Aug. 2013
By USPetrolhead41071 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The story overall was not bad, but truthfully came off as more geared to a teenager. The dialogue reminds me of stories I used to write in highschool. And there were also quite a few grammatical errors. it was aGood concept with Weak execution.
