Two bright geometric shapes, metallic flashes picked out in the morning sun, moving impossibly fast and straight amidst the visual clutter and chaos of forest and rock...
'Is it dragons, Dave, is that what it is? Because I'm not ready for dragons...'
A dragon brings down the Vice President's plane, a monster army is camped outside Omaha, and an empath demon springs an undercover operation in New York.
New Orleans was just the beginning. New and different demons are breaking through all over America, and Dave Hooper has a new enemy with more guile and guts than the celebrity superhero, still stumbling in his role as Champion. While his agent fields offers for movies and merchandise, Dave is tasked with ending a siege in Omaha, saving his friends and deciphering the underrealms' plans to take over the earth.
As an ancient and legion evil threatens to destroy mankind, Dave has to decide what kind of man he wants to be and the nature of his role in this new world. He may not be the hero humanity deserves, but he's the only one we've got.

Having read the first book in the series, I was interested to see whether or not Dave grew into his super-powers.
Sadly, even though he seems much stronger, he is still a bit of a tool (for want of a better word). This whole book seems to revolve around his love life with a bit of monster-buttkicking thrown in just to keep you interested.
It's an entertaining read, but it is not one that I will picking up again in a hurry.
