Sovereign: Nemesis - Book Two | April Daniels
11 posts | 20 read | 5 to read
The highly anticipated sequel to Dreadnought, featuring the most exciting new superheroes in decades. (Kirkus, starred review) Only nine months after her debut as the superhero Dreadnought, Danny Tozer is already a scarred veteran. Protecting a city the size of New Port is a team-sized job and shes doing it alone. Between her newfound celebrity and her demanding cape duties, Dreadnought is stretched thin, and its only going to get worse. When she crosses a newly discovered billionaire supervillain, Dreadnought comes under attack from all quarters. From her troubled family life to her disintegrating friendship with Calamity, theres no lever too cruel for this villain to use against her. She might be hard to kill, but there's more than one way to destroy a hero. Before the war is over, Dreadnought will be forced to confront parts of herself she never wanted to acknowledge. And behind it all, an old enemy waits in the wings, ready to unleash a plot that will scar the world forever.

This series says TRANS RIGHTS!!! How can one not love it??
Having said that, I liked Dreadnaught better. Turns out I waited too long to read this one, and ended up forgetting some stuff from the first book…it made it slightly hard to follow for a bit 😅

Some bits could be a bit triggering for queer teens, and it brought back some less than pleasant memories regarding growing up, coming out, and dealing with family… but it was part of the journey!

Doesn't live up to the emotional nuance of the 1st book. Does have loads of action, rad supporting characters, imaginative world building (how do superheroes operate in a buercratic society?), high stakes.

I wish this story had spent more time developing the MC's ties to her family-of-friends, the family she chose.

Trigger warnings: violence, torture, transphobia, deadnaming, alcoholism

This book was surprisingly good, picked it up because it was one of audibles free books this month but enjoyed it a lott! I'm still reading the search for Wondla and this story reminds me of this one but with a male main character, so not the best books to read at the same time 😂
In this book you follow a young boy, forced to explore new planets on his own because of a accident on his parents spaceship. And all the creatures he meets

I agree with popular opinion that this just isn‘t as good as the first one. Enjoyable. The plot was excellent, and parts felt very topical, but it was much gorier than Dreadnought, and I found it less satisfying.

SkeletonKey I‘ve got my fingers crossed that the third one is a little more character focused! 4y
IndoorDame @SkeletonKey Oooh I didn‘t even know if a third one was in the works. Do you know when it comes out? 4y
SkeletonKey @IndoorDame - There‘s a page for #3 on goodreads so it must be in the works but I see no release date or cover yet! 4y
IndoorDame @SkeletonKey thanks 🙏 I‘ll check the page out! though I‘m guessing if they don‘t even have cover art yet it‘s quite a ways off 4y

Superheroes! Now with more paperwork?

It wasn‘t quite as good as the first. This one focused heavily on the technicalities of law and business in the superhero world plus very detailed fight sequences, neither of which keep my interest as much as character development. It was great to spend time with the characters again, I just wish the focus had been a bit different.

Also: changed up my profile pic since the other was a few years old.

jmofo Nice new pic! The color and texture are striking. I liked the old one too! You looked so cozy & intrepid. 4y
SkeletonKey @jmofo - Thanks! 4y

Oh my goodness, the interaction in the third chapter with Kinetiq is freaking amazing and if you aren't reading this fantastic superhero series, you are missing out.

The sequel to Dreadnought is so good folks! This time Danny's battling a transphobic witch, a Not-quite-fascist who wants to take over the world by stealing people's powers and giving them to the 'worthy' (ie, the rich) and her own inner demons.
