Book Description

Oct. 1 2012
If only relationships were simple. While debating whether to reveal his secret identity to Valerie, Gabriel's personal plans are put on hold when darkness descends upon the city, each building, street and alley covered in a strange black cloud akin to those from the Doorway of Darkness. Only these clouds didn't descend from the sky. They came from a mysterious shadowy being known as Bleaken. With the city under the tyrant's control, pandemonium ensues and violence erupts on the streets. Screams, gunshots and sirens fill the air; fires are lit, blood is shed and people begin to die. Axiom-man must navigate the darkness and put an end to Bleaken's reign of terror before the entire city is destroyed under a veil of black clouds and violence. Meanwhile, having grown closer as friends, Valerie races into the dark, trying to find Gabriel to make sure he's safe, only to succumb to a band of madmen on the way that take her down a tunnel of torture and despair that threatens her sanity and soul. If she doesn't escape, her fate will be sealed and she will meet an end worse than death. With all hope lost and the city covered in a sea of black clouds, Axiom-man must learn what it takes to truly shine as a light in a dismal place and stand strong against the tides of darkness emanating from all sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Readers Have Fun...It's Looking Bleak.... Sept. 14 2013
By T.W. Johnson - Published on
....For Axiom-man and the turf he protects, that is...and that's a good thing. Because within A.P. Fuchs' Axiom-man: City of Ruin, it couldn't get any bleaker. This story is a non-stop thrill ride of action and horror. You'll literally grind your teeth as the hero dives, dodges, and zips about Winnipeg--each scenario more deadly than the one before. How will The Cobalt Crusader overcome a villain made of pure darkness, and the insurmountable odds that await him? Can the love of Gabriel Garrison's life survive her hasty decision? The answers, of course, are just a click away.

5.0 out of 5 stars If this was eBay I'd give it an A++ Nov. 12 2012
By J. MacDonald - Published on
I picked this up at a recent comic con and started reading it in my spare time since I came home. But the more I read, I just couldn't put it down.

The story had a couple story arcs or plots to it, but it wasn't confusing at all, and the end it was wrapped up all nice and neat. That being said of course, left me eager for the next installment in the Axiom-man series. The story had references to past Axiom-man books but they weren't a prerequisite for reading "City of Ruin". Having read the past novels and novellas etc... aren't necessary though they do add a little bit extra zing to the story.

Axiom-man is a likeable, nay lovable character with his own set of quirks. You can see the influence from mainstream superheros like Superman, but Axiom-man is *not* a carbon copy, he is his own character with his own personality and problems. Axiom-man is a regular guy who happens to have superpowers. He has the same problems as every other non-super powered person. In that sense he is a very relatable character unlike some extremely powerful mainstream comic book heroes that have reached an almost god-like status.

Kudos to A.P. Fuchs for another great piece of superhero fiction!
