Review: Hero Worship

Hero Worship
Christopher E. Long
Ever since becoming an IWP—Individual with Powers—Marvin Maywood has dreamed of joining the Core, a group of gifted heroes who save lives and stop crimes. But because he's a homeless teenager who is forbidden to use his amazing powers, wanting and achieving that dream are two very separate things.

But when Marvin saves a family from dangerous hoodlums with his incredible strength and speed, his chance to try out for the Core comes at last. The opportunity seems like a dream come true—until he realizes that the idyllic hero life he imagined is just a mask for the corrupt reality. And when a beloved hero is murdered, Marvin is suspected of being the villain behind the crime.
My Review:  I was given this book by Netgalley and Flux for my honest review.
      I was instantly draw into this book. The world building and characters were well done and compelling. This book was fast paced and easy to read. Marvin is a wonderful character. He propels the whole story with his humor, intelligent, and compassion. The supporting character are good and help the story progress nicely. Marvin is so star struck by The Core he is pulled in two directions . His friends seem to abandon him but come to his aid when really needed. Marvin eyes are opened to the dark world of power and how it corrupts. Great story, can be part of a series but it is a stand alone . I will be looking for more by this author . Really liked his writing style and pace.
