The Imposter: Half a Hero by Richard Lee Byers
The Impostor: Half a Hero is the first book in an exciting new series by veteran fantasy and horror writer Richard Lee Byers, the author of over thirty novels and a frequent contributor to the Forgotten Realms universe. This volume contains Matt’s first four adventures, “Suiting Up,” “The Enemy of My Enemy,” “The Trade,” and “Adaptation.” Also included is the bonus story “The Little Things.”
Matt Brown lives in a world of superheroes and supervillains, of mutants, sentient robots, and monsters. However, none of that has anything to do with him. He’s just an ordinary guy living an ordinary life…until alien invaders attack the Earth, and all of humanity’s costumed superheroes go down fighting. By chance Matt falls heir to their powers, but how can a fake hero save the world when the real ones have already failed? To find out, he begins a quest through a post-apocalyptic world where alien horrors and human supervillains battle for dominion.
