Summary
Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets--and it's all just a show.

When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal, the "supers" are falling in droves. Millions are going to die...unless Jo can cobble together a team from among the survivors. Including Hunter, the super-hot super who seems to know more than he should about how the mysterious Agency that kept them all under control.

Forcing a rag-tag bunch of former enemies to work together is the least of Jo's problems. The trick is determining if Hunter is friend or foe--and becoming the hero everyone thought she was before the world is destroyed for real.

Reviews

"Nantus has crafted a superhero novel for the 21st century with a spunky, stubborn heroine; sinister bureaucrats who have their own agenda and aliens with ships resembling avocados." RT Magazine

"It's a nice new take on super powers and the world that would develop around them. Blaze of Glory provides a fresh voice to this genre which can get stale with the same old shtick. Add to this, Blaze shows a nice selection of different powers, some of which we wouldn't normally think of as those of superheroes/villains.

Too often female protagonists are either pushed around or are so hard you can't stand to be around them. I appreciated Jo Tanis (aka Blaze) being not a strong woman nor a weak woman, but a nice mix. She reminds me of Sarah Connors in Terminator - soft and worrying sometimes, hard as nails when she has to be." Krypton Radio

"Fast paced urban fantasy tale. Our world, with 'super' heroes added. Enjoyed the tale, lots of action, and good closure on this story but also manages to open up a wider world to explore for rest of series. Very light on the romance, which also promises bigger things to come in rest of series. Had me rooting for the good guys (and some of the bad guys)." Book Chick City
