Book Description: 

Barnes and Noble listed No Hero as one of the 20 best paranormal fantasy novels of the last decade – now available in mass market paperback!

“What would Kurt Russell do?”

Oxford police detective Arthur Wallace asks himself that question a lot. Because Arthur is no hero. He’s a good cop, but prefers that action and heroics remain on the screen, safely performed by professionals.

But then, secretive government agency MI12 comes calling, hoping to recruit Arthur in their struggle against the tentacled horrors from another dimension known as the Progeny.

But Arthur is NO HERO! Can an everyman stand against sanity-ripping cosmic horrors?

Review

 

This was an interesting sci-fi tale about a man who was torn from his world and tossed into another…none of his own choosing.  It terrifying to read his fight for life as he battles in someone else’s war.  If you like this genre, you will like this book.  Full of mystery and action and it is tad outrageous.  On one level you will be anxious and on another you will be laughing.

If nothing else, this book offers an escape from your world to another, but, unlike Arthur, you can stop the adventure at will.
