In my first week as a Superhero, I’d fought and beaten Dr. Villainous, stopped six muggings, and rescued four people from a burning building. (But, admittedly, I was the one that set the building on fire, so … that happened.)
But other than the sending the cat into space thing (and the setting the building on fire thing), life was going pretty well, and I thought it could only get better. I was at the University of Prose, ready to attend orientation. Ready to find out what the possibilities were going to be for the other part of my life. Would I be a doctor? A lawyer? A journalist? A photographer? An actor? The sky was the limit, and I had the awesome Superpower to fly even beyond that. I was stupid with empowerment, ridiculous with confidence, and crazy with superiority. I took one energetic step onto the lawn of the campus, smile spreading even wider across my face.
"Gabe, this college nonsense is a terrible idea," said M, the alien that I'm bonded to.
I took a few quick steps, barely avoiding a face plant right there on the lawn.
Now—and especially then—M had the ability to deflate me so quickly, using so few words … the only way I know how to describe it is hilariously sad.
My name is Gabe Garrison, and this is the first part of my Superhero story ...

I'm going to be lazy and copy the same review into all the books of this series (so don't bother to read my other reviews), because I think the author deserves the reviews, but I don't want to (and don't think it is necessary to) summarize individual plots. Rather, I will just say that all these books are well-written, well-edited (something that has become somewhat of a problem with the growth of self-published Kindle books), the powers are interesting (we aren't just talking super-strength or speed, although such powers are present, but in general, the powers are quite diverse and unique) and the characters are well-developed.
I can't say I liked "Magick with a K" as much as the others, but that's just my personal bias against getting too "fantasy-like" as opposed to "science fiction-like." Yes, I realize the utter ridiculousness of drawing a line between super powers bequeathed in a quasi-scientific manner and those based on magic and calling one...
Very cheap, short, easy read. Not bad. I would buy again but would prefer it was in a set. Self published guys need to pay bills too so I get it.
Awesome. Fun romp. Well written genre story. Spectacular. Can not wait for more! Get this book and all the rest tok.
