Review - Enemies & Allies by Kevin J. Anderson
Title: Enemies and Allies
Author(s):: Kevin J. Anderson
Genre:: Fantasy, Adult Fiction
Publisher: William Morrow
Release Date: May 1st 2009
Finished: June 2009
My Thoughts: Set in the 50's, we find two superheroes, Batman and Superman, just starting out as protectors of their cities. Pushed together because of one supervillian, Lex Luthor, the two superheroes struggle with trusting each other.
The chapters were short, or seemed to be. The way Kevin J. Anderson wrote, the book just flew by. I don't know if that is a good or bad thing because, while the story was good, it lacked adventure. Sure there were some hijinks, but I was left wanting more meat to my story.
So this wasn't as good as Anderson's Last Days of Krypton, but it was an okay summer read. I still look forward to more Superman stories by Anderson, if they are coming.
