Summary

Everyone wants justice.

That's what Assistant DA Lulu Lightly tells me. "Cathedral City needs you to set things right," she says. "To rid this place of corruption, once and for all."

I'd like to rid Lulu Lightly of her clothes. And maybe her moral superiority. But mostly her clothes.

"I want you to fight the good fight with me," she says.

Hell, yeah. I'm always up for a fight.

"We should stand up and be the voice of the people," she says.

Sure, I hear voices. Sometimes I even listen to them.

"Figure out what's good for the City and put it first," she says.

Oh, honey...what's good for the City is bad for the people. Trust me, I know. I'm Case Reider - insane Alpha, nefarious inventor, and I understand this town better than anyone.

Cathedral City needs me all right. Just not the way you think. I'm not the justice you're looking for, Lulu Lightly. I'm still the same villain you left behind.

Only now...there's something very, very wrong with me.

A MARVEL TYPE SUPER-HERO STORY... JA HUSS STYLE

Ironman's got Pepper Potts.. Superman's got Lois Lane.. Lincoln Wade (from book 1) has Molly Masters and now, in this second book from Cathedral City, Case Reider has Lulu Lightly. JA Huss totally manages to capture the 'comic book' action hero vibe really well with this unique new story that was well narrated as Case secretly battles what's been happening inside him and changing him. It was after he got injured in the Alpha's rooftop fight with the Blue Corp and the Blue Boar that ended the previous book. Lulu and Case have history together and, from the moment they meet again, that history will be repeated as they become lovers again.. but both are holding back secrets.. and very different agendas.

Lulu Lightly is Assistant D.A. and Case, along with Lincoln and Thomas, are number one suspects for the $millions that have been hacked and stolen from Cathedral City's Banks - but shush.. because the three Super-Alphas are innocent and they're desperately looking for answers too. However, before anyone can gather the evidence and point a finger, everything goes to Hell.. because whatever's been subtly and secretively changing Cole has finally finished.. his transformation is complete.. and it's epic.. with epic drama-filled consequences.

I enjoyed this entertaining listen and JA Huss' unpredictable dual POV plot, masterful world-building and creative imagery is awesome - she's succeeded at capturing the Gotham City feel with one of its super/anti-heroes being used and ultimately falling victim to the faceless super-villain. It was fast paced - with sex, building tension, danger, suspense, romance, nanobots, super-computer hologram Assistants and deadly drama. There's the underlying continuation of the Alpha's revenge plans for Prodigy - the corrupt powerful organisation who stole, bought and bred children like them to be brainwashed, changed and used. In the next book Thomas will meet his heroine Sadie Scott - and let's hope they get revenge and dish out justice.. Super-Alpha style.

Worth a credit? If you like a fantastical super-hero type listen then you'll surely love this - sadly, I can't say I loved every minute of it - and that's not a criticism of the book in any way shape or form because it WAS good. Maybe it's just because my own personal tastes have changed a bit.. nevertheless, I still think YES, it's definitely creditworthy.

Not as good as the first.

The scene JA Huss sets in this series with Cathedral City is almost like a Gotham City knockoff. I caught a sense of that in the first book, but not enough to really take my focus away from the story. In this book, however, it seemed almost to the point of campiness. That with the storyline... it seemed like this should have been the next Batman installment after George Clooney's face-off with Arnold Schwartznegger (sp?) and Uma Thurman. As well, the resolution at the end wasn't satisfactory at all. I realize there is a third book in which I'm sure all will be revealed, but the answers in this book were lame.

NARRATION: I'm sorry, but when you have Sebastian York narrating the first installment in the series, anyone else is going to be a let down in the succeeding books. Mr. Branson's whiny voice is recognizable in all his work, and sadly, it perfectly fits this character who was a whiny little "b." These men are constantly referred to as "alphas," but at no point in this story did I get a sense of strength from this guy. He was weak and feeling sorry for himself most of the book. Got old fast.

Alliteration- part duex

There are several quirks in this series. (1) Each book is first a romance and second a comic book story.
(2) In tribute to the comic book vibe, all the gals have Lois Lane style alliterated names: Molly Masters, Sadie Scott and this book’s Lulu Lightly. The bad-guys follow suit with both alliteration and color coding: Blue Barron and Red Robber. (3) the 3-4 naughty scenes feature some raunch and butt-play.
(4) Mental health issues feature prominently in the plots: book 1’s OCD for listing things, book 3’s
multiple personalities, and this book’s focus on cutting as a self-harm coping mechanism.

All these quirks combine for a great superhero romance concept. Too bad the execution in this book waters the concepts down to an okay listen.

My first gripe is the nonsense with Lulu being a District Attorney. The legal premises make no sense;
a prosecutor would never go undercover, a government employee would never be fired as a ploy, and how is it that the previous book’s Molly Masters (who is a cop) never does any cop stuff?
Even in a “just go with it” comic book plot, this felt like lazy, nonsensical writing. Lulu would have been better written as another cop…and that also might have given the author a chance to have Molly and Lulu work together as a pair of smart women who could pass the Bechdel test.

My second gripe is the absence of an identifiable bad guy for the majority of each book. Without a foil, the stories all stay in the shallow end of the pool. This book’s bad guy has less backstory than book 1.

My final gripe is my biggest: Tad Branson’s narration grated like nails on a chalkboard. His narration is nasal in general, but when he voices the gals it sounds like he’s pinching his nose- it makes for super cringey nooky. A different narrator would probably have raised my listen to “pretty good.” This was still okay enough for a sale purchase.

An interesting concept

I really liked the first book and had high hopes for this one, but the story seems a bit rushed. Especially the end. It takes place only over a matter of days but I was expecting it to be drawn out a little more and the end just sort of is explained through exposition.

Good series

I enjoyed everything about this book except for the female lead. I found her to be quite annoying in her ignorance of everything that was going on when everyone else around knew more. I felt through the whole book all she kept asking was “what is going on?”- girl, get a clue. SMH

The Alphas

When Case said who runs this city at the end I was anticipating he was going to say it and he did. "It's ran by us, The Alphas." I hollered, yes, yes!!! Fucking loved it. 🥰🥰🥰🥰

good story with a twist

This was a good story and included an unexpected twist which made this already crazy series even more interesting. Their dynamic with AI, especially Sheila, made this series different. I've read sci-fi stories before but not like these. it's like The Terminator meets Hercules.

This was even worse, read it but.......

I really think that JA Huss is a great story teller, and often writes about injustice, evil and lots of good sex, but this was not one of her best!! I would prefer these comic book characters in a movie or in a comic book. The heroine Lulu said "I don't understand" so many times, that I wanted to....ugh!! Stupid blond! Then she'll save Case by carving flowers and hearts on his chest!!!! Too much!!! Really!!!
