Publisher's Summary

Cal Stringel may be dead to the world at large, but a select few know that he's still alive and in control of the most powerful suit of battle armor ever created. He's part of a rogue superteam taking the world by storm and changing the dynamic for both heroes and villains alike. With change comes resistance, and those holding control and power are not ready to just hand it over without a fight.
For the former D-list supervillain, it's time to break out the spare synthmuscle, charge the massive railgun pistol, and bring the pain. With his new team, he thinks he can take on the world, but is Cal biting off more than he can chew? He must deal with sanctioned hero teams and power-mad bureaucrats on one side and the major supervillains of his world on the other.
As Cal and his allies ready themselves to face friend and foe, he will also have to deal with his relationship with Stacy Mitchell, also known as the Olympian, Aphrodite. Separated for more than a year, they've only just reunited and are faced with the prospect of being on opposite sides of the coming conflict. Can they find enough common ground between the secrets and half truths to sustain their fledgling relationship, or are they doomed like the last time to crash and burn?
Find out in Secrets of a D-List Supervillain.

Reads like a clip-show

This book comes across as a cheap and quick way to throw out something new in this series without actually putting anything NEW out. It's basically about an hour of "new story" in between lots of flashback to "Confessions", which while revealing and entertaining, doesn't really do much to move the series along.

After all of that, we're left with a cliffhanger obviously setting up for the book that actually moves this series along.

So, not a bad listen, just be prepared to hear the same tale from different angles.

A Good Listen but Not Quite Equal to the Original

Enjoyed this book, and the structure--'present' Cal and the 'present Cal' revisiting what happened in the past by story snippets told to Aphrodite.

Why not quite equal? I think it didn't break much new ground, which this being the third book (the 2nd being a prequel) seems like only dog paddling forward. Better than treading water.

Still, the story is quite entertaining and Cal Stringel is his usual entertaining self.

The narration is excellent in this series, as usual. I was disappointed with Wendy's voice change. I understand the reason, but she sounds more like a foul-mouthed man than anything else. That's my only disappointment in the area. Everything else is strong.

I'd recommend reading/listening to at least Confessions of a D-List Supervillain (the first novel) prior to giving this one a listen.
