Armed with only a multi-tool and an arsenal of weapons-grade snark, Spencer takes on his superpowered father’s robotic nemesis to try and uncover the fate of his mother. Along the way he rallies a team of retiree superheroes and everyday people living in the shadow of a weapons program gone wrong.
Before the dust settles every superhero and supervillain will come together for a Jerry Springer style Ragnarok. On the brink of Armageddon, with his mother’s very existence at stake, Spencer stumbles into the true mastermind’s web and discovers he’s been the prey all along.
Crimson Son isn’t your typical superhero novel. Fast-paced, engaging, with all the action you’d expect but set in a believable world helmed by a vulnerable hero with an unmistakable voice.
Targeted Audience: General Audience
In the fourth grade, Russ Linton wrote down the vague goal of becoming a “writer and an artist” when he grew up. After a journey that led him from philosopher to graphic designer to stay at home parent and even a stint as an Investigative Specialist with the FBI, he finally got around to that “writing” part which he now pursues full time.
Russ creates character-driven speculative fiction. His stories drip with blood, magic, sarcasm, and radioactive bugs. He writes for adults who are young at heart and youngsters who are old souls.
