    One thought on “Hero is a Man”

    1. This book is set pretty far in the future which for some reason is always really fun to read. Maybe because it's cool to see what other people think could happen in the future? What big events they can make up? Two stories are actually told in this book. One at the beginning of each chapter in italics and then the rest of the book is dedicated to Misha and Halycon's story (and supporting characters). Eventually these two stories come together and you find out the connection. My reaction was basi [...]

    2. I really liked it! The narrative was kind of choppy, but the characters were super interesting and cool, the plot as well.

    3. I enjoyed the book from the moment I picked it up till the time I put it down, and then it stayed in my mind for a while more, teasing me with the characters and themes.

    4. "Hero is a Man" is the debut novel written by fellow Taumarunui author, Nix Whittaker. It is the first part of her newly launched "Glyph Warrior" series. Once again, reading a local author challenges me to expand my genre horizons, this time venturing into SciFi Romance.It turns out, this is an opportune read for me as, in my current novel, I am not necessarily endeavouring to write science fiction, but ultimately doing so by setting it in the near future. The setting for "Hero is a Man" resembl [...]

    5. After the end of the world, people struggle to survive all over the planet. In one colony, Misha is a peaceful man who tries to stay out of trouble. Then he meets Halcyon, a blue haired genius/inventor who has discovered the secret of the glyphs, which give their bearer extraordinary powers. As he tries to protect her from dirty politics, assassins, and drug lords, he finds he is falling in love with her -- something he had never planned on. The story is interesting, the premise and the world sh [...]

    6. I absolutely loved this book! I could imagine myself in the world from a third person point of view, well written :) Am hanging out for number 2 :)

    7. Warning *biased* review as this is actually my own book under a pen name.This is a easy light read where the romance is sweet. Would even be suited for teenagers as there aren't large vocabulary words that would keep a less able reader from appreciating this novel.Set in the future after the world has managed to put itself back together after global warming has wrecked its havoc. We follow the story of Misha. I like Misha for being a stoic, but a completely reliable person who doesn't get intimi [...]
