Book Review: Excelsior - George Sirois

Synopsis - Matthew Peters had spent the last seven years creating the ultimate online comic hero.  He never dreamed he would find the true comic hero within himself.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Review - An interesting concept for a storyline.  A young boy who develops a comic hero story which gains a following online, only to find that his dream becomes reality.  Great characterisations from the school kids to the inhabitants of Denab IV.  The story is told well and goes along at a reasonable pace.  The ending leaves the possibility that there may be more  of Excelsior to come.  I liked the author's note at the end about how the book came to fruition and that the main character Matthew is named in memory of a relative.  4*
