Blaze of Glory Trilogy
Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets, using her ability to feed off electromagnetic energy
and fire off charges—and it’s all just a show. The Agency captures her and others like her when their powers
begin to manifest, pitting them against each other in staged, gladiatorial fights. An explosive implant on the
back of her neck assures she’ll keep right on smiling for the camera and beating up the bad guys.
When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal with a real alien,
the “supers” are falling in droves. Millions of innocent civilians are going to die…unless Jo can cobble
together a team from among the fake heroes and villains the Agency enslaved. Including Hunter, who not
only promises to show her how to deactivate the implants, but seems to know more than he should about
how the mysterious Agency operates.
Forcing a rag-tag bunch of former enemies to work together is the least of Jo’s problems. The trick is
determining if Hunter is friend or foe—and becoming the hero everyone thought she was before the world is
destroyed for real.
The Protectors are back in town!
This might not be a good thing if you're one of the bystanders caught in the crossfire between them and a
rogue super, using his freedom from the virtual slavery of the Agency to put the villain in super villain.
A super-powered former actor in the government sponsored "shows" has gone rogue and threatens to start
destroying cities if he's not paid fifty billion dollars. The only thing standing between him and a disaster are
the Protectors, made up of second and third-level super heroes who just won their freedom - but now risk
losing it all if they can't find and neutralize this threat.
Jo Tanis, A.K.A. "Surf" has to figure out how to defeat not only him but do it while determining the best way to
lead her team, and if she's even right for the job, and deal with her feelings for one of her team-mates.
But hey, no one ever said the life of a Super-Hero was easy…
It's time for the final showdown and for the Protectors to either claim their freedom or return to slavery – of
one kind or another. Jo Tanis is still recovering from her near-death experiences in Las Vegas when they get
a lead on the mysterious Controller and discover he isn't just a past Agency employee – he's also got a slew
of high-tech hardware making him a match or superior to their skills.
In the middle of deciding what to do Jo receives a call for help from Harris Limox, an old team member.
Splitting off from the team to visit Limox Jo finds herself face-to-face with a surviving Alpha super, her idol
and a wild plan to capture the Controller.
But things aren't always what they seem and Jo ends up in her worst nightmare, faced with either fighting her
teammates or dying.
Saving the world is easy for a superhero—unless you’re a fraud.
