For the first time in his life, Joe isn’t forgotten.

After the victory against The Phoenix Ring, Joe has found a family of sorts in the Order of Saint Hadrian. He has a purpose, a plan, and a beautiful woman who remembers him. Life is looking good.
While the Serenity City cabal is in tatters, the Phoenix Ring operatives across the country in Halo City are tightening their grip. They’re about to steal an election. While the local villains are reeling, Joe and Celeste head to California to disrupt the Ring’s new scheme.
But The Phoenix Ring hasn’t survived for centuries by playing softball. Joe is the ghost they can’t forget, the man they won’t overlook. They bring in a dangerous Prime that can see Joe to hunt him.
Now Joe is the one on the run, and the clock is ticking away before the election. Can he find the First Magus and save the election in Halo City? Or will the Phoenix Ring get to him first? Read Overlooked Again today and find out!

    I perused Jon’s Twitter when he announced the follow up to Overlooked. I was taken by surprised and so happy I dropped everything and immediately bought it.
    The second book is very pulp. The action is very faced paced and managed to finish it in 1 day. It’s that compelling and the cliched expression a real page turner is apt.
    The story continues from the first where Joe, Celeste and the Order of St Hadrien are killing off the board members to further disrupt the Phoneix ring. The beginning is such an hommage to James Bond it immediately hooked me. But wait! There’s more, this novel introduced one of the most striking villans in the Heros Unleashed universe: l’Hibou (owl). He’s a match to Joe and just as cunning. Throughout the book there’s a cat and mouse of cunning and intelligent antagonists that really drive the story.
    But wait! There’s a bonus! The plot brings back an old friend, not a person but a city: Halo city! That immediately got my attention. Now I knew they wouldn’t have a cameo of another old friend but secondary characters who get a totally different experience and seen from a distinct point of view. Enriching the already latent richness and exposing a rich and varied world building

    The story also has a number of revelations about the Order, the threat the Phoneix ring really represents as its otherworldy. And of course the growing love between Joe and Celeste ending with not just an obvious denouement but introduces a new phase in their lives. I look forward to the next book just to see not only what happens to them but who’s really behind the Phoneix ring.

    I highly recommend the novel. I’m not sure if this one open Phase 2 but even if it doesn’t’ readers will really enjoy it.

    My only gripe is that it ended so quickly but then it’s book 2 where the chess pieces and plot are being manuevered to the next phase. It accomplishes its task. It entertained me, enthralled me and intrigued me throughout the novel. Never a dull moment; never a drag to read.

    Very highly recommended.

    Joe Smith, the forgotten man, returns in Jon Mollison’s Overlooked Again. Joe finally faces a true nemesis, a Prime with preternaturally keen hearing and sight, not to mention Gallic unflappability. This is also the first book two in the Heroes Unleashed universe, so we get to see Joe play in Halo City, the setting of another book in the series. Finally, we also begin to see the true nature of Joe’s enemies, the Phoenix Ring, and just how far they are willing to go in their drive for power.

    Fast-paced would be a bit of an understatement when describing Overlooked Again. In true pulp style, Joe rockets from one adventure to another, crossing the breadth of the United States twice, and even being whisked away to Merry Old England by a nefarious servant of his enemies.

    Things move equally fast between Joe and Celeste, the only woman who sees Joes [well, most of the time]. Raising a family is difficult in a dangerous profession, but I’m sure they’ll figure something out. After all, if being a Prime is heritable, staying hidden should be a snap.

    Or, maybe not, since it turns out that the Phoenix Ring dabbles in powers far beyond those of Primes. Joe’s allies in the Order of St. Hadrian can perhaps help him, but he doesn’t yet know if he can trust them. An odd position to be in for a man who is accustomed to not really existing.

    I found this book a quick read, and a fun one. I very much wanted to see what happened next, and can’t wait for book three. In the meanwhile, we should have lots of other adventures in Heroes Unleashed to keep us busy.

    Jon has actually written Grey Man the book. Guy who can disappear, but is highly competent. Great under-powered super hero novel. Jon is also very good at mixing in fun and positive romance elements to spice up the story.
