The Fire Inside (A Sidekicks Novel) by Raymond Rose

Since I enjoyed Better Together by Raymond Rose so much I decided to pick up another of his novels, The Fire Inside.

The Fire Inside is the first story in a series called Sidekicks. The story literally begins with a bang. The first paragraph has a gang called the Rook, a machine gun, a pistol, a knife and exploding windows. Already the story was off and running.

One of the leading characters is Karen. Karen loses her husband Bruce in a brutal killing but she eventually comes out on top and learns how to let go of the guilt and anguish and move on. The heroine is very well written and believable. In fact all of the superhero characters are easily understood and even easier to relate too even with their powers.

This is a story about personal struggles in a character motivated story but as I noticed with Raymond Rose’s first work there is excellent satire woven all through the story providing angst with joviality thrown in on the side.
I can't wait for the next installment.
Another five stars !!
