    High-Octane Adventure in a Dystopian Manhattan

    (Originally posted on Amazon) The Icons of Man is a fast-paced, barnstorming first book from Robert Langan. Set in a dystopian New York where violent storms are accompanied by massive onslaughts of zombie-like "Kappos" and giant monster "Blood Poachers," the city's only resistance are a set of "teams" of super-powered Durationists with colorful soccer-esque names: Tremont United, Bedlam Athletic, etc... Comprised of four supers, these teams work in contest to fight through the waves of bad guys and "punch the storm." The story follows the trials and adventures of a budding team, Bedlam Athletic, and their quest to achieve recognition in the leagues. But as they venture further into the storm they realize that all is not what it seems. Can't wait for Book 2! This may seem a bit confusing, but Langan grabs you into his world and never lets go. From page one, I was already deeply invested in this unique world that he had created. Combining elements of dystopian horror, fantasy, and (somehow) sports, Langan has created a new and interesting world in a genre often defined by archaic tropes. Definitely a must-read.

    Great read. Not my typical genre

    First read an author advanced copy of the book on kindle. Great read. Not my typical genre, but it might be going forward. Tried to read this on my downtime at work and couldn't put it down. Highly recommended, can't wait for the next one.
