Reformed: A Dive in Review

So much fun packed into today’s post, you could call it super.

A few weeks ago I featured a book on here titled Reformed. It was kind of a cover reveal / spotlight.


I’ve been told that it’s okay to print out and color this image.

The book is out now and I want to make sure you all know just how great it is.

Dive in Review: Reformed

Reformed is a different kind of Superhero story.


It’s main protagonist is Prism, a young, idealistic superhero who believes that there is good in everyone. She is the kind of goody two shoes that usually ruins a good superhero story. Honestly the girl has no flaws, unless being too nice is a flaw, but well it’s not really. At least she uses a ton of sarcasm.


Thankfully she is perfectly balanced by Fade , a former supervillain and the first subject of Prisim’s new rehabilitation project. Fade is convinced of his own unredeemableness. And it can be argued that Fade’s self doubt is the real villain of the story. Fade is flawed and has a ton to work through which gives him a very dynamic arc. (He’s the one being “reformed,” in case you missed that connection.)


Other notable members of the team are Tanvi, and Aiden, who are too cute together. There’s also Keeper (not pictured) who has a Scottish accent and an unhealthy obsession with his cat.


As for villains, Mymic is a mystery. It was so well strung out and so perfectly paced that it had me guessing their identity right up until the end. They are so twisted in their motivation that when you realize who it is, you will want to go back to the beginning and make sure that all the clues add up. (Don’t waste your time, becasue they do.)


I love the snarky word play, and the witty banter game is strong with these heroes. If you love marvel movies then the fun one liners mixed with serious drama of Reformed will be sure to please you.

But it’s not all fun and games here; H.L. delivers some serious feels.

After you read it make sure you tag the author and use #chapter17.

No spoilers, just a warning.

I can not wait to read more from these delightful and kick butt heroes. But I’m just not sure if my emotions can take another #chapter17.

Not okay

Oh, what could possibly be in chapter 17? Buy it and find out!

Once a villain, always a villain?

Optimistic and idealistic superhero Prism is determined to redeem her father’s legacy by rebooting his supervillain rehabilitation program. To do so, she sets her sights on Fade, the relapsed supervillain who was the reason the government canceled the original program in the first place. However, when she petitions for Fade to be released into her custody, she finds out things might not be as simple as she thought.

Convicted of an unforgivable crime, Fade received a choice: surrender to trial and possible execution or endure a memory erasure so he could start fresh. Now with no recollection of his time before incarceration, Fade doubts he has the ability to be anything but the villain the public believes him to be.

A series of attacks by a mysterious power-swapping villain points back to Fade’s past and the crime that cost him his freedom and memory. With her father’s legacy and her own reputation on the line, even Prism has to wonder: can a villain truly be reformed?
