Crimson Son

Crimson Son

Chapter One

Can the powerless son of a superhero do what his father couldn’t?

Spencer Harrington is the son of the Crimson Mask, the world’s most powerful Augment. Ever since witnessing his mother’s abduction by a psychotic supervillain two years ago, he’s been confined to his father’s arctic bunker. Haunted by nightmares and tired of eating cardboard rations in the “Icehole”, Spencer launches into his father’s dangerous world to uncover his mother’s fate.

With no superpowers of his own, Spencer stumbles through a web of conspiracies and top secret facilities armed only with his multi-tool and an arsenal of weapons grade smart-assery. Along the way he rallies a team of everyday people and cast-off Augments, but soon discovers that his father’s nemesis, the Black Beetle, isn’t his only enemy or even his worst.

Crimson Son isn’t your typical superhero fantasy. Fast-paced, engaging, with all the action you’d expect but set in a believable world and helmed by a vulnerable hero with an unmistakable voice.

Reviews for Crimson Son

“Crimson Son is a strong, rite-of-passage piece, examining the bonds of father and son and the impact each can have on the other, set against the worlds of augmented super-beings and shadowy government conspiracies. It shouldn’t work as well as it does, but it does. In spades.”
Fanboy Comics – 5 stars

“This bright, quirky fantasy, gives “superhero” a whole new meaning… The world Russ creates is so real, so believable, that you’re left wanting more of this character driven, action packed book.”
The Author Visits – 5 stars

Crimson Son is a 5-star book. Fast paced, engaging, character-driven, and a fun voice I love to read. As far as non-traditional Superhero books go, Crimson Son blows Steelheart out of the water.
– Laura Masiano – Hidden Corner of the Interwebz – 5 stars

“More than just a “superhero” novel, it has emotional subplots that touch on coming of age, seeing your parents as other adults, trusting friends, and the triumph of the human spirit. “
– Bookie Monster – 5 stars
