FID'S CRUSADE by David H. Reiss - FREE on Amazon until 7/19
« on: November 13, 2018, 06:56:19 PM »
The supervillain-noir contemporary-fantasy / sci-fi novel that was the winner of the 'Science Fiction / Fantasy / Horror' category of the 2018 Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize, a finalist in the 13th annual National Indie Excellence Awards, a B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree, and is now a competitor in the 2019 SPFBO!

For more than two decades, the sight of Doctor Fid's powered armor has struck terror into the hearts of hero and civilian alike. But when a personal tragedy motivates the veteran supervillain to investigate a crime, a plot is uncovered so horrific that even he is taken aback.

Haunted by painful memories and profound guilt, Doctor Fid must race against time if he is to have any hope of confronting the approaching threat. Every battle takes its toll...but the stakes are too high for retreat to be an option.

Read the supervillainous action-thriller that critics have called "immediately engaging", "ridiculously fun", and "a solid foundation for a new series!"

Fid's Crusade is available at Amazon   (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C92PMDH ), as are the sequels, Behind Distant Stars ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G95MZ2S ) and Starfall ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PVVXS4X )


"Brainy, snarky Doctor Fid is as likeable as a supervillain gets. This book offers an energetic, ridiculously fun storyline that will feel like the 'adult' version of Despicable Me"
- The BookLife Prize

"...manages to meld the intrigue of an action thriller, technical geekdom of sci-fi, cadence and form of classic writers, and the fun of graphic novels."
- JPFlo (Amazon Reviewer)

"David H Reiss presents a humorous and intelligently-written take on the superhero genre that's well grounded in adult thriller and conspiracy fiction (...) Overall, I'd definitely recommend Fid's Crusade as an innovative homage to superhero fiction that elevates storytelling for the modern age."
- K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

"Fid's Crusade by David H. Reiss is one of the most refreshing and lively takes on the superhero genre I've seen in years. His title character's crusade is colorful, compelling, and takes wonderfully unexpected turns, and the novel delivers an impressive emotional punch (to go along with the super-powered ones). It stands easily alongside other character-driven superhero novels like Austin Grossman's Soon I Will Be Invincible, Carrie Vaughn's After the Golden Age, and Paul Tobin's Prepare to Die!."
- Hugo award-winning author Tim Pratt

Hi David...that was one kickass awesome book. Probably the most fun book I've read in recent memory. Love the writing style and down to earth black humor.  Plot has enough content to make a blockbuster movie (you really should start looking for movie/TV deals)  8)

Spoiler for Hiden:
The backstory of Bobby dying wasn't really convincing or proper for Fid. A super-villain killed Bobby and Fid wants to be a suer-villain too for revenge? He should have been disappointed with Bronze and focus his revenge on the evil guy.

Thankfully the character of Fid was so well defined that the flaw got brushed under...but still....

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I had an absolute blast writing this series. The third book came out just this last Wednesday and I'm still giddy.

I'm planning on taking a few months to work on a high-fantasy project, but rest assured that Doctor Fid will return!

Thank you again,

- David R.
