    Description

    In a world where "human" is only the beginning, and people can become something more, some will rise above, and become superheroes. But for every hero, there must be a villain. What drives someone to become a supervillain, and take on the heroes of the world? What would the life of someone who has accepted that they are no longer part of "normal" society and devotes themselves to their own dreams and goals be like? What if a supervillain decided to write his memoirs, and speak about all these things?

    This is the memoir of the Supervillain known to the world as Iceblade. It chronicles his achievements and his failures, his loves and his losses. Learn about the theft of the Mona Lisa, the subjugation of Lady Victory, and the slaughter of the Holy Order of the Word. Hear for the first time about the death of Bytegeist. All from the point of view of the man himself. 

    The setting is a world of superheroes and sci-fi, and our main character, who may not be the most powerful out there, but is willing to do whatever it takes to win. No matter the cost. He is not a hero. He is not an anti-hero. He is not a vigilante. He is a villain, and knows what he is. He is amoral but ethical.

    Rated R: Definite language, violence, gore, sex, and all the horrible things that can happen in the world. If you have triggers, consider this your warning.

    Loved it! Loved it!! Loved it!!!

    I love a little super-hero in my fantasy/science-fiction listens so this book hit on all levels with me. I loved it!!

    The story is told from the perspective of the supervillain and we get the joy of discovering how he came to be. I seriously need to tip my hat to the author for this. The genesis of this supervillain was very inventive and it made his villainy ways, well, understandable.

    The narrator has a certain grit to his voice that absolutely endeared me to this performance. It was pretty special.

    This book did have one flaw though and that was the last chapter. Stop before that one. You can thank me later.

    Great book!

    Engaging story and solid narration!

    The story of a young man who gains powers and how he copes, adjusts, and grows with them.

    This is the story of an unapologetic villain - well written and narrated, but villainous.

    The negative reviews have more to do with people being offended by the MC's choices than quality of writing and narration. If you can't handle villainous choices don't read a book about a villain - and don't smear it because you didn't like it. (you can tell some of them were reviews from people who don't care for the genera, but got the book for free)

    This is an interesting look into the behind the scenes world of supers.


    fun and well worth a credit

    Not Even Finished and I Want To Review It!

    I am more than halfway through this book and I don't want it to end. I cannot say enough great things about the story and the narrator. I would be willing to watch a movie or tv show of this story. The narrator provides enough distinction between each character and gives life to the character Ice Blade.

    This book is such a unique take on the superhero/supervillain story and shows how a person's path can lead them to either good or bad, they aren't just born one way or another. I liked that the story included superheroes who were actually really bad people despite the label of "hero". The same as our main villain isn't always a bad person.

    Please, Please, Please, PLEASE!! Read this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and I will be truly sad when I get to the end. I hope that the author has more stories out there that I can hunt down.

    Should change the title to Memoirs of a Rapist

    Don't waste your time or money with this, for lack of better word, crap.

    Almost quit listening, I barely finished it. I did, however enjoy this book at the start, but as it progressed it became boring and predictable.

    I doubt I'll be purchasing other books by this author.

    Awesome story

    This is neither a story for younglings, or people who are looking for HEA, white knights sort of tales. The MC is unapologetically not a nice person to those who cross him, or for those he is paid to cross. The world, and the story is very well done, even if the MC needs an insane luck stat to account for some of his good fortune. The narrator was good, save for it sounded like someone in their 50’s trying to portray someone much younger. Not to say it was bad, it was very well done. It just took away from the MC when his stated age starts as a teen and is in mid/late twenties by the end of the book. Even so, hoping to see the rest of this characters story as audio books soon.

    VERY INTERESTING!!!

    This story tells the tale of the upcoming super villain Iceblade and his rise to prominence. I enjoyed how his journey had its ups and downs. The narrator did a great job too.

    Voice Actor was Adequate, Story needs more tact

    Voice Actor: Davids ok. just comes off like a bit cheesy more then I care for

    Story: It's not a bad story, it just falls prey to 2 major flaws:

    1) MC never really works for his McGuffans
    2) The Rape/ Slave fantasy is in poor taste. Leave it to our imaginations, dont play out your fantasies (this is worse then the overly descriptive and sexual Bard at a D&D table)
