Wearing the Cape

Wearing the Cape is the first book in a rather interesting, if not especially deep, superhero series. As you might expect, the first book is the origin story, but it covers a bit more than that. It's obvious by the end of the book that we're not dealing with a comic-book level plot. These heroes have grown-up problems.

It's worth reading at certain price points. I started the series when it was on Kindle Unlimited, but it's no longer there, and the books are currently priced at $8 each (about half a traditionally published new release, and roughly the same as an older traditionally published book). The writing and editing merits the price. The length is ... less so, as the books usually come in around 200 to 300 pages. I held off on finishing the series for that reason, at least for a while.

If you want pro-quality writing and a superhero series, this isn't a bad choice if you aren't sensitive to price.
