Hero's Comeback

By LexWrites All Rights Reserved ©

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."

I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

izzymerchant: This book is truly special. The plot, the characters and the way the story flows is so engrossing and magical that I found it virtually impossible to put down. The character relationships were particularly fascinating and Melenthia's character was fascinating. Cannot wait to see what happens next!

LeahWrites: I love your use of writer's craft and how you use figurative language to enhance your writing. It great how you didn't have any spelling or grammar issues.

minallie: One word, brilliant

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

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...

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...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Megan King: This book is absolutely amazing, it kept me on my toes through the entire book. I hope there is a second book. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, action or romance because it is full of all three 💕
