Second Chance City

Second Chance City 
L.A. Kelley
August 2015

Police officer Nate Hammond led a well-ordered life in Coldwater Bay until a chance meeting with a girl from his past drags him into an extraordinary adventure. 

Libby Parish never intended to visit her hometown again. Is the strange obsession to return related to a mysterious comic book? Or someone she left behind? 

Sucked into a deadly comic book universe Nate and Libby find themselves in Second Chance City, home of Refractor and a league of murderous adversaries. Can a knowledge of comic books, a half-hearted super-hero, misunderstood villains, science gone horribly awry, and a magical flashlight help them find a way home or will their second chance at happily-ever-after only end in in death?

Between The Pages
Second Chance City is a fantasy, sci-fi, sweet romance. The pages of this story are perfectly written to keep your attention with one adventurous scene after another. The main characters are enjoyable as is the rest of the cast of comic book heroes. Even a few villains will capture your interest. The story is told in the point of view of the hero, Nate, but I would have liked Libby’s thoughts to be included to add more emotion. However, the plot line is fast-paced and exciting, making this story a recommended read.

4.5 Stars
