    1 thought on “We Could Be Villains”

    1. Picked this up because I love her husband's Wizard books and webcomics, and he posted a recommendation for it. Now that I've read it, I think it's as good or perhaps better than his books - depending heavily on how deeply into geek culture you are. :) While perhaps not an epic for the ages, it's a great quick read, I will definitely be getting the sequels.Love the premise of being the villains and making the world a better place in secret, while thumbing your nose at the pompous "heroes" that th [...]

    2. I really wanted to like this book, but it's just bad. Slow and dull and, in the end, just a weirdly specific wish-fulfilment fantasy. The antagonists are arseholes specifically to justify the protagonist in doing whatever she wants, and the good guys just love her and give her everything she wants for no real reason.The idea of corrupt or incompetent super heroes and a super villain whose goal is to expose them is great. That premise is why I wanted to like this book. But here, when the supervil [...]

    3. Love this book, great world and well developed characters. I will never get tired of reading female characters that make themselves strong.

    4. I really enjoyed this book a lot. It was a fun read that I couldn't put down, and was anxious to get back to. I only give 5 stars to the books I enjoy the most and would wholeheartedly recommend, and I have no problem rating this one as a 5.My only complaint is that the first half dragged quite a bit. She spent a lot of time and detail on how a relationship was going, food, clothes, relaxing at a resort and how it looked. This wasn't bad, but I was anxious for the story to start. Exactly at the [...]

    5. Not your ordinary super hero story that is for sure. The story follows a citizen who is not phased by the Super Heroes in her city. She is a corporate monkey and knows it. This is a character a LOT of us can relate to and because of that we feel as if we can become this character.I loved and hated this book. I give it a 3 to 4 star rating due to the beginning and end of the book. Once the true story starts to begin the world that is created is obviously a utopian world the author wishes could ex [...]

    6. This book is just a FUN read. I initially bought this book because I liked her husband Scott Meyer's "Magic 2.0" series, but now I undoubtably believe that this is the superior series. Let's be straight. This is not the Filet Mignon and Lobster of literature here. Does it have some shortcomings? Sure. The biggest one is that is lacks any real conflict. But in my opinion, that doesn't really keep the book from just being fun. I also think the book sets up an interesting and all together unexpecte [...]

    7. We Could Be Villians started out weak and found its footing as the story progressed. The story doesn't commit any obvious amateur sins, but the early sections do suffer from a lack of editing. I noticed early on, a few sentences and phrases that clearly serve no purpose and are filler. Editing should have caught these and sharpened the prose. However, these minor infractions disappear later in the story, and it is clear by the 10th or 12th chapter or so, the author is more comfortable with the s [...]

    8. This book was both fun and smart. I'd give it 3-1/2 stars if I could. I enjoyed it even though the main character was something of a Mary Sue and the plot had some cliched elements to it. I don't want to give anything away, but hey, you don't have to be the world's greatest detective to figure out where and with whom she will wind up with in the end. Yes, it is a geek friendly book because it involves super heroes and villains, but we see it all through the eyes of a woman who is very much a reg [...]

    9. Sarah Valentine is stuck in a decent but dull job, in a world where superheroes really exist, but seem a bit off. She gets injured in a hero incident and taken off to an idyllic island lair run by a super villain, who turns out to be more super than villainous. Sarah decides to join the villains and help do good for humanity against the rotten, government run heroes.The premise is good, the characters are quite likeable, but an awful lot of time was spent commenting on how great everything was a [...]

    10. I read this because I'd read her husband's books and his comics, and when I saw shed had written a book too, I figured I'd give it a go. It's an easy read, and it's an uncomplicated story with very few twists. That's not to say it's not a good book, but the biggest twist was where the super hid the McGuffin.Much like her husband's books, I'd gladly buy the next one, if only because it's a good book to lose yourself in for a few hours.

    11. Overall it was simple. The characters were fairly flat, lacking a detailed backstory. The most complex character was the antagonist, super-hero Commander Alpha, who was still fairly flat. The villain's hideout was a socialist utopia that was too good to be true and the people were unbelievably nice. The plot was predictable and could use some work. Also, I was a bit disappointed they only alluded to a grander scheme. It was still an enjoyable read.

    12. Clearly a labour of love, but not of great skill. Particularly the first half needs another editing pass for pacing, grammar, and justifying the premise of that part of the plot. It picks up after that, but the dialogue especially never quite approaches believability.If you have a high tolerance for AO3 writing, though, it'll probably fill a few hours adequately.

    13. The wife of Scott Meyer (another author I am currently into), has written an absolutely enjoyable book from cover to cover. It's a world where there are superheros and villians - but it's a world that feels very familiar. Loved the characters and cannot wait to read the follow up (which I just discovered today).

    14. Fun superhero reversal where the heroes are villains and the villians are, if not quite heroic, at least mostly well-intentioned and sympathetically written. Everything is wildly improbable, but what do you expect from a superhero story? Totally bought the sequel, saving it for the next time I want a book which is lighthearted and fun rather than heavy lifting.

    15. Fun and a joy to read.Very fun read. The characters are very believable and the story has a great pace that kept my interest. Some great use of references and humor that kept me smiling to the end.

    16. Another take on the superhero genre, though this time from the perspective of the villains. A decent read, though I found the end a little jarring, not quite a cliffhanger, more a cliff. Hopefully, there'll be a sequel to finish things off properly.

    17. Clever superhero/supervillain funVery clever and funny. Reminds me of books like Astro City which turn the tropes on their head. Lots of nods to geek culture. The author is definitely one of us.

    18. Highly entertainingAn enjoyable ride of fantasy. I enjoyed tagging along with the"badguys." Great plot and characters. Good pace and a quick read.

    19. Very NiceGood read! Was done very nicely. Would definitely be interested in additional works! I'm no book critic, just a casual reader but enjoyed it immensely.

    20. Fun and different take on the super hero genre. I picked it up because I enjoyed her husband's book.

    21. This was a fun read. Nothing to heavy, but the author does pump up the danger here and there. The risk factor doesn't really keep the heart pumping fast all the way through.

    22. While it should have been a quick read, the story drug on in places. It wasn't a bad story, just didn't hold my interest.
