Hero, Second Class
By Mitchell Bonds

Book 1 in The Hero Complex.

The humor in Bonds' writing had me laughing out loud. He manages to poke fun at every convention of adventure writing. Between monologuing villains, narrating heroes, Capital Letters and Arbitrary Numbers, he tells a story of a young man who is coming to grips with a world that is a lot more complicated than he had thought.… Hero, Second Class is a first-class book, and I will be waiting eagerly for the next installment of mayhem.

Back Cover Copy

Have at You! Cyrus Solburg is a young man who dreams of becoming a Hero in a fantasy world in which Heroes owe monthly dues and Villains are allowed only one eclipse per fiscal quarter. A bona fide Arch-Villain is on the loose. And this Villain is particularly interested in young Cyrus, not least because of how Cyrus seems to have magic coming to him in spite of himself, resulting in tremendous disruption of the magical planes. Entering into the fray come a wise-cracking Dragon, a petulant gargoyle, the Heroes' Guild, the Army of DarknessTM, and a horde of cursed invisible Centaurs. Cyrus will have to call on his friends, a beautiful young cat girl, and all the power of the Capital Letters and Arbitrary Numbers if he is to live to become a full-fledged Hero.

With an incredible cover and brilliant writing from start to finish, Hero, Second Class is a Marcher Lord Press success story. It has sold very well for MLP, despite its 600 pages, and was a finalist in the ACFW Book of the Year Awards for Best First Novel.

Jeff Gerke is publisher at Marcher Lord Press, the premier publisher of Christian speculative fiction.
