Rob Rogers dropped me a line about his new superhero novel that is coming out soon (it is solicited in the February issue of Previews), from Wizards of the Coast's new book line - Wizards Discoveries.
Here is Rob's description of the book (and read more to see the cover, plus Greg Rucka's take on the book, plus a link to Rob's work blog for the book!):
It's a superhero story set in a fictional Louisiana city called Devil's Cape (a sister city to New Orleans, founded in the 1700s by a masked pirate called St. Diable). The book is set in the present day and features a trio of new heroes: Argonaut, Bedlam, and Doctor Camelot.
Here is what Greg Rucka had to say about the book (you can see this and more at Rob's blog here):
There is NO WAY that this is Rob Rogers's first novel. This is a novel replete with the rewards of a lifetime of training, effort, and passion. Devil's Cape is a mesmerizing, seductive, and darkly moving piece of fiction that seamlessly, even gracefully, marries tactile reality with myth and magic to bring its own pulsating world to life. Beyond expectations, full of surprises, singing with resonance and emotion, Rogers has written a novel that first stabs the superhero genre in the back, then flips the body over and shocks it back to exhilarating life. What arises from this crime scene is a post-modern delight. Take the tour of Devil's Cape-I guarantee you're going to like it here!
Some heady praise there, Rob!
