Hero's Comeback

Fantasy / Action

Chapter 1

"Another day another dollar." I thought as I rolled over to reach for my phone. Being a super villain for hire is the new booming business. Super heroes contact your handler with their request and they in turn contact you. The set up could be anything from a simple mugging to a terrorist attack. Wannabe heroes paid good money to get their face on the news. If only the world knew that these heroes they idolized paid to have hundreds killed for their own gain. With my help of course.

"Sebastian here." I answered.

"Morning Bast its Lisa." As if I wouldn't recognize her voice. Or how annoyingly chipper she was first thing in the morning.

"You should really stop calling me Bast. I've skinned people for less you know." I replied without much enthusiasm. Once you threaten someone and don't follow through the threat is ruined.

"Yeah, yeah you've told me several times about how you kill every handler that works for you at some point. Remember you hired me while you were in the process of chopping off Katie's head with a butter knife. That was wicked by the way."

I sighed into the phone at Lisa's response. Girl was absolutely out of her mind but damn she was great for business. If she wasn't making me so much money I might be more inclined to murder her. Business before villainy I reminded myself.

"What do you have for me Lisa? It's got to be a quick one. You know I have that nursery to blow up at 2:00pm." Not every job had to be intricate. Some heroes just wanted to show up and save the day. At exactly 2 o'clock the place would blow sky high. Of course the hero would have conveniently been in the area and noticed a gas leak. Leaving him plenty of time to evacuate and get people to safety. A few kids and staff would be left in the building. Better publicity if not everyone makes it.

"Bast you'll absolutely love this one I promise!" The glee in her voice would terrify most people. It was music to my ears. Whenever Lisa gets excited about a job it's absolutely....messy.

"I'm all ears."

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader. In the daily life of a B17 Bomber Pilot that just happens to be a commander of an air-group, along with the hassles of keeping a bomber group running in peak performance during WW2. Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...

minallie: One word, brilliant

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence... Over and over and again!The only things that were missing for me include more descriptions on what happens when Reuben touches s...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.
