The alternative history fan favorite! Volume one of the Sovereign Era cycle, and book one of the Charters Duology.

ABOUT THE BOOK
April 18, 1985 – A startling revelation shocks a world already wound tight by the desperate tensions of the Cold War: super-humans exist... and they demand autonomy.

Until that day, high school sophomore Nate Charters thought he was just an outsider and self-proclaimed freak. His unusual appearance, hair-trigger reflexes, and overactive metabolism could have made him something special, but his differences and low self-esteem marked him as a target for the jocks and popular kids long ago .

Now, just as his unique nature catches the eye of a self-assured older girl and the sinister attention of the enigmatic Dr. Brenhurst, Nate must solve the mystery of his origins and find his place in the world. Is he part of a remarkable, powerful new minority... or just a misfit among misfits?

He’d better find his answers quickly. A shadowy organization knows more about him than he could ever imagine. And they're closing in...

This was a great book to listen too. It kept my attention and kept me interested through the entire book.

Hi Bored! Yeah, the intro on the first episode or two is kinda long, isn't it? That was created back in 2005, when there only a dozen or so podcast novels in existence, and we were all really pretty much making it up as we went along when it came ...

This book has a lot of potential, but also suffers from a few pitfalls typical of new writers. Namely, they like their characters too much and don't want anything really bad to happen to them, and they fail to take advantage of their chosen perspective. The result reads more like ...

The writing is solid, the character voice is wonderful, the narration and audio quality are very good, though the production has very long intro and outtro that could be much shorter (but this has been discussed). I agree with Librarybill to a certain degree that there could have been more ...

I've only listened to part of the story but so far it seems kinda preachy. Good example would be that fight when he gets off the bus where he doesn't strike back just evades and then gets a speech about how disapointed she is in him. Why. He made only ...

I've finished the story but that conversation still does not fit. If there had been more directly connected to clashes between normals and sovereigns it would have fit better but that was kept in the background. I'm hoping you plan to write another book focused more on the ramifications of ...
