Product description


"Fid's Crusade is an entertaining read because of its cynical - yet optimistic - lead character, and an innovative superhero universe all its own. It's tough to create an original perspective on superheros, but Reiss has done so here, establishing an entertaining and multi-faceted character in Dr. Fid, and a solid foundation for a new series."

- Self-Publishing Review

"Brainy, snarky Doctor Fid is as likable as a supervillain gets. This book offers an energetic, ridiculously fun storyline that will feel like the "adult" version of Despicable Me."

- The BookLife Prize

..".manages to meld the intrigue of an action thriller, technical geekdom of sci-fi, cadence and form of classic writers, and the fun of graphic novels. All of this with true heart and some unexpected plot twists."

- JPFlo

"A powerful bad guy with moral standards who's well-rounded and highly entertaining."

- Kirkus Reviews

"David H Reiss presents a humorous and intelligently-written take on the superhero genre that's well grounded in adult thriller and conspiracy fiction (...) Overall, I'd definitely recommend Fid's Crusade as an innovative homage to superhero fiction that elevates storytelling for the modern age."

- K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite (5 star review)

"Fid's Crusade by David H. Reiss is one of the most refreshing and lively takes on the superhero genre I've seen in years. His title character's crusade is colorful, compelling, and takes wonderfully unexpected turns, and the novel delivers an impressive emotional punch (to go along with the super-powered ones). It stands easily alongside other character-driven superhero novels like Austin Grossman's Soon I Will Be Invincible, Carrie Vaughn's After the Golden Age, and Paul Tobin's Prepare to Die!."

- Hugo award-winning author Tim Pratt

"One of the most refreshing and lively takes on the superhero genre I’ve seen in years."

-- Hugo award-winning author Tim Pratt

Even supervillains have lines they dare not cross.

If only the same could be said of heroes...

For more than two decades, the sight of Doctor Fid's powered armor has struck terror into the hearts of hero and civilian alike. But when a personal tragedy motivates Doctor Fid to investigate a crime, a plot is uncovered so horrific that even he is taken aback.

Haunted by painful memories and profound guilt, the veteran supervillain must race against time if he is to have any hope of confronting the approaching threat. Every battle takes its toll...but the stakes are too high for retreat to be an option.

Read the supervillainous sci-fi action-thriller that critics have called "immediately engaging", "ridiculously fun", and "a solid foundation for a new series!"
