Book: Superhero - Chronicles of Blue Knight Adventures by Allen Pollens
|5 stars, 1 review on Amazon|
Allen Pollensabout this book: Seven Superhero Blue Knight adventures take place in Chicago, New York City, Big Island, Hawaii and, through a time portal, into the future.
Superhero is challenged by an art thief (The Artiste), a Marid jinni (Kadar), a volcano goddess (Pele), a Russian Mafia boss (Ivan), and gangster committed to bringing back the glory days of Al Capone (Tony).
Captured and held prisoner by The Artiste in the initial episode, Blue Knight dwells on how his alternate identity, Roger from Nebraska, came to Chicago to fulfill his destiny. Thus, readers are treated to the Superhero origin story. While each episode stands on its own, Roger/Blue Knight evolves with the new challenge each escapade presents. The relationships he forms with the people at Rosie's Rooming House become increasingly important, especially the one with Myra.
Created by Merlin, Blue Knight has the appearance of a knight of old as he appears in Roger's dreams. However, every aspect of the knight's being and his steed, Black, contribute to his super powers. The excitement of Blue Knight's exploits as he goes forward according to his vows of conduct is heightened by the unusual and wily opponents that test him. Yet beneath it all, there is still Roger, the human side of Blue Knight, who grows from the simple young man off the farm into a principled adult with strong feelings for the people around him.
Each episode is unique in the story it tells, and what it adds to our understanding of Roger and Blue Knight. Readers may finish the seventh episode wanting more. If they do, author Allen Pollens promises a sequel with more Blue Knight adventures.
