Book Review: Behind the Mask by Brandon Kennedy

Behind the Mask by Brandon Kennedy

A Superhero Novel published by Amazon Digital Services Inc. (07/13/2018)


Heroes exist. Kelly has a power, but she doesn’t want to use it. She doesn’t want to get caught with her power. Expectations are too high and she just wants to be left alone. Not everyone feels this way. Kelly’s best friend wants to be a hero and will jump at the chance when she gains her own powers, pulling Kelly along with her. Kelly will be left with no choice but to use her power. The question is, who will she use it for?


Join a heroine hiding from her past, a villain stuck between loyalty and passion, a vigilante masquerading as a hero, and a detective searching for the strings that tie them all together. This dark tale explores the idea that the person behind the mask isn’t always who we expect them to be.

My Review:

I really liked Kelly. She’s the reluctant hero of the story. She has a chip on her shoulder and a bitter attitude about heroes, but is loyal to a fault. When her friends pull her into the world of heroes, she will have to respond. At least to save their butts.

I didn’t buy the romance that was introduced in the second half of this story. It was too sudden – for the characters and in the plot of the story – as if it was thrown in there for variety and to create extra problems for the characters.

The story was excellent and really fun to read. The grammar could use some work. There were quite a number of typos as well and there was an issue with the formatting, especially in the second half. This book, if polished, would be a five-star read. As it is, if you can look past the grammar, typos, and formatting you will enjoy this book immensely (especially if you like a good superhero action book).
