2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Hearts of Darkness Andrea Speed


1)OH MY GOD HOW MUCH FUN WAS THIS????  Kaed is the world-weary, seen-it-all son of a mad scientist supervillain. Ash is a genetically engineered assassin/bodyguard raised in a monastery by an isolated death cult. Together…well, they don’t exactly fight crime, but they do have quite a few adventures—and fall in love. Of a sort. There’s SO MUCH to enjoy in this story, but the best part, in my opinion, was Kaed’s eye-rolling, tongue-in-cheek narration—made all the more relatable as Ash gets under his skin. Seriously, this is one of the most fun things I’ve read in a long time. Just fantastic.

Kaede Hiyashi is sick and tired of living in the shadow of his father, supervillain Doctor Terror. Brilliant but crazy, Doctor Terror sends his son to Corwyn, California, for reasons Kaede can't imagine. Sent to accompany and protect him is Ash, a genetically modified supersoldier raised and trained by an infamous death cult.

Corwyn is lousy with superheroes, led by the obnoxious Dark Justice. Kaede finds himself dancing around Dark Justice as he digs into his father's mysterious business and teaches his socially awkward--but physically lethal--bodyguard to acclimate to "normal" life. Can these two wacky supervillains figure out what Doctor Terror wants them to do, solve the riddle of the villain known as Black Hand, and keep Dark Justice from raining on their bloody parade? The course of love--and world domination--never did run smooth.
