Summary: (from goodreads) Blissany Cherry is tired of sleeping around. Her neurologists’ sleep solutions have failed her. Now that her bizarre sleeping habits have begun to include week long dreams she has resorted to her own methods for a cure.
METHOD ONE: CONTROL DREAMS. All attempts to morph dreams about a gorgeous warrior into romantic fantasies are thwarted. He keeps on insisting she is destined to marry a great king and lead their armies into war. At the end of every dream he asks her: will you fight the war and save mankind?
She laughs in his face.
METHOD TWO: RESIST! Blissany has plans for her life. None include fighting an intergalactic war. When her dreams begin spilling over into reality, she is forced to make a decision that will forever redefine her life. Standing between destiny and desire, she is left with only one option.
METHOD THREE: SURVIVE.
Superheroes Wear Faded Denim introduces us to two main characters Blissany Cherry and Don Shimada. Blissany is shy self-conscious art student and a sleepwalker who just happens to be the key to defeating one of the greatest evil this world has ever known. Don is outgoing, popular and basically has a bright and successful future ahead of him until that is he starts having hallucinations of war and destruction. Together they are bound by destiny to save the world.
All in all a great concept but I have to say that this book was difficult to get into. However, once all the characters are introduced and you have some sense of what the heck is going on it sucks you in. Normally I wouldn’t recommend a book that takes 100 pages to really get interesting, there are however a few exceptions and Superheroes Wear Faded Denim is now at the top of the list. Don’t get me wrong there are some very intriguing moments that keep you reading but it just takes a while to really take off.
I think one of my favorite things about this book is that it changes POV. Don was my favorite to read even though he was a bit of an ass at times. Blissany sometimes is frustrating to read, you really want her to snap out of her funk. Luckily that’s when Don’s chapters would come in and the story would advance making you excited to get back to Blissany to see what she was up to and how it would work its way back to the story. I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more from Law Reigns.
