    1. Superheroes are hard to write. People might not stop to think about that, but it's true. It's a very visual medium. We are used to SEEING the heroes fly around and punch villains. All wearing their flashy suits with their flashy powers. So writing a novel in the superhero genre is daunting. Reading one is even more :-)Recently I've gone on a superhero novel hunt. I wanted to read a good superhero novel. I'm an avid comic book reader and this turned out to be no easy task. I read handfuls of samp [...]

    2. When his wife is framed for the murder of an old friend, a retired super-hero has to get back to work.Dave, alias White Knight, has super-strength and a bad knee. His wife, Black Valentine, is a telepath who used to be a super-villain. She’s arrested for murder and he sets out to prove her innocent, tangling along the way with old friends and enemies.Told in first person, this is well written and well edited, with very few errors. Great characters, a decent mystery plot, and plenty of action, [...]

    3. openbooksociety/article/heBrought to you by OBS reviewer OmarHave you ever wondered what does the famous superhero do when he retires? Or what happens when the most popular villain stops robbing banks? Well Hero Status tells the story of the famous hero White Knight and his villain wife Black Valentine. After his forced retirement, Dave Del Toro a.k.a. White Knight has been living a peaceful life with his wife and daughter, well, as peaceful as it can be in their mansion, but not everybody is ha [...]

    4. Kat Mandu saysSuperhero fans, you won’t want to miss this! Hero Status is packed full of action, humor, and old-fashioned good guys versus bad guys.I can’t tell you why it has taken me so long to finally read this book. Busy schedules and life, I suppose. But I can’t believe the greatness I’ve been missing!Dave is an older character and a retired superhero with a bum knee. He used to be famous (and he still kinda is, there are just newer ones out there who have taken over) and one of the [...]

    5. I received a copy for an honest reviewI went into this with the thought of wanting to try something different for once, and boy, was I in for a nice surprise.White Knight was an invincible strongman and a superhero. Then he married his nemesis, the beautiful psychic Black Valentine. Now he is retired and happily raising their daughter. Then Val is arrested for the murder of Knight's best friend.David needs to find out who is behind setting up Val. Quickly, for his daughter's sake. As he limps ar [...]

    6. I was really excited to read this book. A retired superhero married to a supervillain? Let the fun and action begin! Or that’s what I hoped would happen. Reading the word “retired” in the synopsis, had me under the impression that White Knight is no longer saving people and doing his superhero thing. Instead, the story revolves around a superhero has-been who “retired” due to a bad knee (and other reasons). In the end, this book was just way too long. Every time I picked it up to conti [...]

    7. As for the story and characters - loved it all. The first thing that grabbed me with this book was the smooth way the author "showed" us the setting rather than just describing it. On another technical note, there were very few typos or errors in this book, which is nice to see with a new author. I did find that some transitions in this book were a bit bumpy and I occasionally had to re-read a previous paragraph to confirm the connection to the subsequent one. I had skipped over this one a coupl [...]

    8. A good firstWhite Knight was an invincible strongman and the government's go to superhero. Then he married his nemesis, the beautiful psychic Black Valentine. Now he is retired and happily raising their daughter. Then Val is arrested for the murder of Knight's best friend.Good use of forshadowing, mystery, and characters. The way the author uses super powers is thoughtful and consistent. There are a few oddities, including how the villains still have their fortunes, but the world building is qui [...]

    9. The superhero genre is flooded with almost but not quite there stories. Kristen Brand seems to nail it on the head with her story of the White Knight and Black Valentine. I loved the White Knight character, here is a man that did everything possible for justice, his family and friends. He is not egotistical, he is not unlikable and his problems feel real. The sub characters have life and substance as apposed to card board cut outs of tropes. The villain was creepy, the mystery engaging, and I ha [...]

    10. With Hero Status, Kristen Brand has created a thrilling story of a loving husband trying to find out who framed his wife - a former villain with superpowers - for the murder of another superhero. Hero Status is a gripping and touching read with human characters, not only enjoyable for superhero fans. You get to know the characters better and better as the story proceeds, the nerd in me had reasons to chuckle and also hold my breath along the way. I was drawn into the story - trying to stay one s [...]

    11. Probably my favorite thing about the book was the diversity. The main hero is Hispanic, and is married to a grey area villain. It flows very well and all the characters are beautifully written and wonderfully three dimensional. It's the perfect read for Marvel fans who prefer traditional writing to a graphic novel.

    12. PG but still plenty of fun. One of a trend of realistic superhero novels which stops short of anything unpleasant and is instead just an enjoyable and fun read.
