"Hoskin's pessimistic narrative voice [is] bleakly transfixing, and his quickly paced plot will keep readers guessing until the very last page."
- Publishers Weekly

"Irreverent, gritty, and poignant when it needs to be, Bystander 27 is a bloody blaze of a read that peels back the familiar trappings of a super-hero tale to explore loss, revenge, and the power imbalance when cape-wearing gods walk the Earth astride us mere mortals."
Pierce Brown,
author of Red Rising

"Rik Hoskin's Bystander 27 is a novel equal parts mystery and action that will appeal to fans of comic books and graphic novels."
Brandon Sanderson,
author of Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive

"An epic and furious adventure!"
- Alan Philipson,
contributing author to the Deathlands series

"Bystander 27 is a twisty page-turner that freaked me out and kept me guessing. Rik Hoskin, you are SuperScribe! Bring on the sequel!
- Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author of The Wicked Saga

"Wow! What a ride! Twisty, sneaky awesome book of superheroness with a dash of humor, mystery and thriller and completely different than anything you've ever read. Fun stuff! For comic book fans, for Marvel fans, for Dr. Horrible Sing Along Blog fans."
Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Mercy Thompson novels
