Soon I Will Be InvincibleDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
A wildly entertaining first novel about good and evil, narrated by a cape-wearing superhero and a nefarious super villain. Doctor Impossible - evil genius, mad scientist, diabolicaltime-traveler, wannabe world dominator - has just brokenout of prison ... again. He's tried to take over theworld in every conceivable way: doomsday devices (nuclear, thermonuclear, nanotechnological), armies (robot, insect, dinosaur, fungus, fish), mass mind control, even a corporate conquest (Impossible Industries LLC). Each time, he has been foiled. This time, it's going to be different. Fatale, a gleaming technological marvel built by the NSA as the next generation of warfare, is living in Boston, watching TV and listening to the police scanner. A woman of skin and chrome with a long silver ponytail, she's given the chance every super heroine dreams of: to join a once-famous group of beautiful young heroes, newly reunited to stop Dr. Impossible. In alternating chapters, we see Dr. Impossible plan his comeback, and we watch the good guys - Fatale, Damsel, Blackwolf, Feral, CoreFire - come together in the face of unspeakable evil. Featuring a cast of superheroes and supervillains with remarkably human emotions who inhabit a world strangely similar to our own, this is an outrageous adventure with a literary bent - a smart take on power andcelebrity, glory and responsibility, and those old standbys, truth and justice.
