V if for Villain by Peter Moore May 7, 2015

Filed under: Fantasy Books — lpitrak @ 3:29 pm


I totally love books where the main character could be either the hero or the villain, so I loved reading V is for Villain by Peter Moore.  Main character Brad is a genius, but feels overshadowed by his older brother Blake.  Blake is a real life superhero, who fight for the benevolent Justice Force.  To compete, Brad befriends dangerous Layla, who has a super power so intense that it is illegal and she must keep it a secret.  Following her gets Brad into serious trouble with the criminal underworld; at the same time he uncovers some family secrets and starts to notice his own (very illegal) super power beginning to emerge.

Written  and recommended by the staff of the Downers Grove Public Library.
