From the Publisher:
Opening a portal to love.
Socket and Valor have been best friends—and part time superheroes—for years. When an invasion force threatens the Earth, they form a team of heroes to face the threat.
Closeted media darling Valor has no idea that Socket has been nursing a crush on him since their high school days. When a buffer, grittier version of Socket emerges from one of the alien portals, Valor discovers his own attraction, but his refusal to out himself gets in the way of his and Socket’s budding intimacy.
The alternate Socket has his own agenda, however. One that doesn’t include attachments or a team of do-gooders getting in his way.
There are a few things you should know about me as you read this review. 1. I attend Comic-Con annually. If you don’t know what Comic-Con is then you probably aren’t a huge sci-fi geek like I am. 2. I love superheroes! Really, I frequently have heated debates about who is hotter, Tony Stark or Steve Rogers. Are you are saying who the hell are Tony Stark and Steve Rogers? Then you probably aren’t a superhero groupie like I am. Taking that into account I am going to tell you why I enjoyed this fun little leap from reality called The Division.
CC Bridges did a great job of world building on this version of Earth where there are people with special powers. Ordinary citizens can do amazing things kinda like the X-Men do. There are also portals to alternate realities opening up, and from these portals dangerous attacks are occurring, kinda like Fringe. That is why “The Division” is formed, to fight off the drones coming through the portals. There are also bizarro world, alternate universe characters that exist and they are coming to destroy us too. If that wasn’t enough action we also get a smokin’ hot love story. Two members of The Division are doing it on the down-low because superheroes can’t be gay and still be respected. Really? Ask Green Lantern how that is working out for him.
So, there was a lot of creative fun and a lot of action packed into the pages of The Division. It may not be a book that everyone will find as appealing as I did, but if you enjoy superheroes, and don’t get distracted by nicknames such as, Socket, Jester and Dash, then you will probably get sucked into this entertaining little world for a very wild ride.
I would like to thank Musa Publishing for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
