Reviews

Praise for The Somebody People

­­­­­"The Somebody People is a thought-provoking read that raises timely points and bears a resemblance to the X-Men series in its treatment of those with extraordinary abilities. Fans of the series will definitely enjoy this installment."--Booklist

Praise for The Nobody People

"[A] complex novel about the cost of being different . . . The characters are intricately human, each rendered in minute and thoughtful detail that pushes back against stereotypes. . . . [The Nobody People] leaves the reader eagerly awaiting the next installment."--Publishers Weekly

"Proehl masterfully uses science fiction as a lens to examine social inequality and human evil; readers will find it hard to believe that they're not actually looking into the near future."--Booklist

"Thoughtful, nuanced, kinetic, and, above all, human, this is the superhero story we've been waiting for."--Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of the October Daye series

"The Nobody People is an expertly plotted, morally complex, brilliantly written, adrenaline-fueled adventure into a new dawn of heroes and villains. Hold on tight to this novel, because you're in for a hell of a ride."--Benjamin Percy, author of The Dark Net, Thrill Me, Red Moon, and The Dead Lands

"Smart, exciting, lyrical, and fun. This astonishing book brings the superhero universe of Marvel or DC into our own, with all its rough edges and ugliness. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop."--Sam J. Miller, Nebula Award winning author of Blackfish City
