H.E.R.O. - Rise and Fall
Kevin Gerald Rau
The H.E.R.O. series continues after the events of H.E.R.O. - New Markets. This short novel follows the lives of three newly empowered Supers:
Diva: A former model, she is struggling to learn the ropes as a new member of the H.E.R.O. organization.
Chrome: As her life shatters from the devastating change into one of the most powerful brick superhumans in Metrocity, she must learn how to cope with the terrifying realities of no longer being human.
Gravitix: His story unfolds as he makes a decision for or against the use of power for easy gain and evil.
Through their trials, a strange mutant uses her charm and wiles in an attempt to corrupt the new supers and aid her in freeing the bloodthirsty mutant followers she lost in H.E.R.O. - Metamorphosis.
The story brings back many familiar faces from the first two novels in the series as we again interact with Psystar, Spartan, Black Tiger, Gatecrasher, Psycom and Silverlash.
The H.E.R.O. Universe is a new world of heroes and villains. As a novel-based story forum, it allows for deeper character development than that of a comic book or graphic novel based story. Each novel in the series follows the perspective of several heroes - or villains - in their lives and schemes.
The common super types include Psychics, Blasters, Bricks and Mutants, although some crossover occurs in unusual individuals. Psychics generally gain mental powers, such as telepathy, telekinesis, or emotional powers. Blasters have the ability to generate or control an element or waveform, such as light, electricity, or heat. Bricks are the strongmen of the world, having massive strength and bodies that can sustain immense damage. Mutants appear less human in appearance due to the addition of blades, tentacles, fins, wings, tails, and more to their bodies, and are between a brick and the others in physical strength.
The other novels in the series include H.E.R.O. - Metamorphosis (Book 1), H.E.R.O. - New Markets (Book 2), and H.E.R.O. - Dark Research (Book 4, coming soon). As an ongoing series, each novel stands alone. However, many of the characters in Metrocity do make recurring appearances and the history of the world does build with each novel.
H.E.R.O. - Rise and Fall is a short novel of approximately 53,000 words. Please visit the author's website for more information on characters and character images. (http://www.kevinrau.com)
