This is a superhero story for the post-punk era: Live fast, die young, and take over the world.Kirkus Reviews Marvin Maywood only wants one thing in lifeto join the heroes of the Core. But he cant follow his dream because his powers are fed by fear, which is against the Cores standards. So he lives on the streets and watches the elite team of costumed crime fighters from afar. After Marvin performs an illegal act of heroism, he meets Roisin, one of the Cores heroes, and it seems like his chance to join the team has finally come. As she guides him through his tryout, he starts investigating some strange happenings within the Core. And when Marvin realizes that the idyllic hero life he imagined is a mask for the ugly reality lurking beneath it, he becomes caught in a corrupt web of secrets, lies, and death. Praise: ""Loaded with action and moral ambiguity, this is a classic superhero story with noir sensibilities.""BOOKLIST
