Review: Excelsior by George Sirois


I joined a FB group and took part in an event online with them, where we got to meet George online and ask him about his other series of books. As a bonus, he gave us a chance to pick this book up for free. I did, and once I'd finished my other current read I went out and started this one.

From the start, the story pulled me in. The idea of it was amazing and the way you learn of Matthew and how the dreams of a comic could be something so much more, was one that you don't see too often. My only critique is that the ending seemed a little too fast. While I don't mind fast stories, it pulled me out a few times to catch up on what the heck was going on.


In the end, that didn't stop me from loving what this book had to offer and I would happily recommend it to just about anyone who enjoys this genre.
