Superheroes in Prose Volume Two: The Ballad of M Reviews
I am not sure I am the audience for this series. I just can not get into the comic book super hero story lines.They are nicely written, just not for me. This book picks up where the last left off. It takes up into Regan's head and powers. The mixed narrative goes between her and Gabe. The transitions are clear and smooth and easy to follow.I listened to the audiobook narrated by Bryan Reid, who has a nice read. I generally enjoy his tone and pace. The issue I have as to do with the voice of Regan. It was weird and off, just not to my liking. Other than that it was a good read.I am sure there are those this series will really appeal to, just not me. It is nice to try something new every now and again. I can appreciate the writing, it was the genre that wasn't for me.Disclosure – I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Finally! The exposition (with regard to M at least) but at least we didn't have to wait too long! Funny and interesting.typo: lightening instead of lightning XD
My full Superheroes in Prose, Volume Two: The Ballad of M audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.I am happy to say that Paris does not waste out time with a re introduction of the characters involved here. Starts of with and continues with a very fast pace. Staring Gabe the reluctant super with stupid awesome powers and that annoying symbiotic alien "M".I find it difficult to give a basic rundown of short stories without giving everything away. I will say this there is time travel, ray guns and a super villain involved in this installment. "M" has more of a featured role as opposed to last time.While these are very short stories or chapters or volumes, whatever you want to call them. They are still complete in every aspect. Fully satisfying, cynical and entertaining glimpses into a parallel Earth where superheroes really exist. These are meant to be fun stories and Paris is evolving as a writer with each chapter.I am pretty sure that Bryan Reid is related to or channels Trey Parker, one of the founders of South Park. I say this because his narration style reminds my of Cartman so much. Makes me laugh so hard. The subtle and not so subtle sarcasm that he is able to inject into every place that Paris wanted it is perfection.Audiobook provided for review by the narrator.
Prose, Tennessee is back in fine form! Superheroes in Prose, Volume Two picks up right where Volume One left off, dealing with the aftermath of Gabe's run in with Liberty and the revealing of his powers to Reagan. Volume Two spends most of its time developing the characters of Reagan and M. Reagan's conflicted feelings about her own existence and place in the world take center stage, and a sizable backstory is given to M over the course of the story. In many ways, this installment serves as a bridge. It encounters some of the second episode slump issues that a lot of serialized stories deal with, but overall it sets up future events without coming across in a "been there, done that" manner. Narration wise, Bryan Reid vocal work is in top form. He goes back and forth between character voices with relative ease, and his Southern accent jumps from comical to charming while still being respectful. In fact, after two Volumes, I don't think I ever want to experience this story outside the audiobooks. On the whole, Superheroes in Prose, Volume Two experiences the second episode slump, and a few jokes don't quite land. But the ending leaves things in a good spot for future development, and Bryan Reid's narration work elevates the story to another level. 4 out of 5 stars.
