Kiersten's insight:

This is a picture of Paramount Studios in California, known in the book as "The Mount". It was used by the humans as a refuge that would keep the living dead from getting to them.

EX-HEROES - STEALTH (BOOK PROMO)

A book trailer I directed starring the character Stealth from EX-HEROES and its sequels, EX-PATRIOTS and EX-COMMUNICATION (due Christmas of 2012), all publis...
Kiersten's insight:

This video gives readers a visual description of the character Stealth from the book. I personally envisioned this character differently, it's good for getting an idea in place for readers about to read the book.

   However, this clip is not a summary of the plot neither does it hint at any of the exciting villians you will meet, but it does explain a single character more in depth.

Kiersten's insight:

  This is the story of six heroes: Stealth, Gorgon, Regenerator, Cerberus, Zzzap, and The Mighty Dragon. The lively, once vibrant city of Los Angeles had been taken over by the living dead, forcing these heroes to fight for their own survival and go into hiding. As the years went on and knowledge of survivors (locked in a film studio fortress called The Mount) arose, these heroes soon learned that they must unite to lead these thousands of survivors to gather supplies, contact family, and bring hope to others out there. Although the ex-humans have been walking the streets day and night, another group of people was gaining power across the city, and they are not heroes.

    If you're looking for an action-packed, suspensful story that is an easy read, this is the book for you. Personally, I found it a little cliche, with the whole "zombie apocolypse" theme mixed in with the typical "superhero" characters. I liked it as entertainment, but if you were to ask me what I really learned from this book, the most I could say is that I learned working together is crucial for leading, no matter how good of a "superhero" you are. Although I'm a little on the fence about how I feel about this book, it is a good read. It kept me involved and before I knew it, I was halfway done.
