3 star review of Excelsior by George Sirois
Teenager Matt Perry has written a comic strip about the hero Excelsior ever since he touched a sword, found during an archaeological dig. Turns out the sword holds the essence of the actual Excelsior, who saved his world Denab IV from the Krunations. And Matt was chosen to absorb the essence as many have before. He’s needed to free the Denabians. This novel is full of exciting adventures and situations, dear to the hearts of teenage boys. Aside from occasionally lapses, the writing was good, but I knew how it would end, especially since it’s the first of a series.
