“A Fun Read” From the Argent universe, the author brings us three entertaining stories featuring three different heroes in connecting stories. The time is the mid 1930s, and otherworldly aliens are on Earth. They are using higher technology to force humans to work for them. The stories reminded me of Saturday Matinee serials and over-the-top pulp heroic tales of the Thirties, as well as the super heroes of the comic books from the same period; great characters, and lots of action. The author spins tales of daring-do, with heroes facing great odds, yet overcoming in the end, and we know that good will triumph over evil when we turn to the last page. The Crimson Crusader, Karma, and Dr. Stellar are thrown into the war in separate tales, stopping space aliens from conquering our planet. A quick and fun read, not to be missed. Highly recommended.
