Publisher's Summary

Devastated by the loss of his older brother, teenaged Jared Weiss dons a mask and cape in pursuit of vengeance. He becomes The Paladin. Unfortunately, the real world isn't like a comic book, and wherever The Paladin goes, disaster is never far behind. Will Jared be able to avenge his brother before he winds up in a grave beside him?


What the Critics Say

"Kevin G. Summers' The Paladin really stands out as worthy of note. The story focuses on a teenage boy who has no powers and decides to don a homemade style Batman suit to avenge his brother's death and rid his city of drug dealers. It's a fantasy every comic fan can relate to, as well as a deeply emotional tale of a young man's struggle to find himself and his place in the world. The story is also full of references to everything from characters like Green Arrow and Nightwing to Dungeons and Dragons, making it an even more fun listen if you're a geek yourself. Above all though, the story stays true to real life and evokes a great deal of sympathy for its protagonist." (Eric S. Brown)

Excellent audiobook

I really enjoyed this short / novella sized audiobook. It's a wonderfully crazy tale of a teenage vigilante/superhero, who fumbles his way though various mishaps!!

The bonus story is a well done story revolving around the discovery of a very rare comic by a teenager & some important life lessons learned! This makes a nice 'wind down' for the audiobook.
