On an Earth much like our own, individuals with extraordinary abilities have had a great influence upon history, and the development of society and its laws, since their first public appearance during the height of World War II. It is a place where extraordinary beings are more than individuals with god-like powers, they are also people with families, struggles, and personal victories. It is a place where anyone can rise to be a Hero, and become a Legend.|
Dominick DiAngelo is married to a wonderful woman and is the father of two young boys, but he is also Vanguardian- the world-renowned Hero of Autumn Arbor, the City of Legends. Struggling to maintain a balance between his domestic life and his secretive duties as Vanguardian, Dominick s situation is a precarious one as his time away from home continues to cause undue strain upon his marriage.
Unfortunately, a power within VanCorp- a globally powerful corporation- has targeted Dominick for annihilation, vowing to destroy both his personal and professional life. Attacked by enemies at a public event rally meant to bolster Vanguardian s public image, Dominick suddenly finds himself in a race against time to uncover the motivation behind the attack and bring those responsible to justice.
But the plot against Dominick threatens to effect more than just one Hero, as Autumn Arbor is suddenly turned into a warzone. Vanguardian is just one facet of what Autumn Arbor s most dangerous enemy has planned, and in the end, the entire City of Legends could find itself plunged into darkness as lives are destroyed and power structures within the corporate and judicial systems are shifted. A shift that could mean an end to the era of Heroes within America.
