All over the country individuals are exposing strange and wonderful abilities to a world that may not be seeing such activity for the first time. Everyone wants a piece of their attention and assistance but they will decide for themselves what their fate will be. Misusing their power is not an option when an unexpected and deadly adversary alters the course of their lives forever. Patterns & Choices, the first Extra Heroes novel, takes the super-hero genre out of its typical comic book element and explores themes of heroism and responsibility through surprising realism and a thoughtful, original cast of characters. Extra Heroes: Patterns & Choices is a novel for many ages (13+) by Dean Browell.
