Review of Light by 'Nathan Burgoine


Light by 'Nathan Burgoine 5*
BLURB: Kieran Quinn is a bit telepathic, a little psychokinetic, and very gay—three things that have gotten him through life perfectly well so far—but when self-styled prophet Wyatt Jackson arrives during Pride Week, things take a violent turn.
Kieran’s powers are somewhat underwhelming but do have a habit of refracting light into spectacular rainbows for him to hide behind. Even so, it’s not long before Kieran is struggling to maintain his own anonymity while battling wits with a handsome cop, getting some flirting in with a hunky leather man, saving some drag queens, and escaping the worst blind date in history. It’s enough to make a fledgling hero want to give up before he even begins.
One thing’s for sure: saving the day has never been so fabulous.

My Review: Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley. Yet another superhero story that hit the mark! This time it's a telekinetic, telepath with a religious nutter to fight. The whole time I was reading I was smiling at the quips and angsting over the "can he, can't he win out against the villain whilst still trying to get his man" scenario. It was also a very refreshing change to read about a romance that was sweet rather than hot. If you like your superheroes to be very human and your action to be interspersed with humour then this is for you.
