    A reviewer

    If I could rate this book less than one star I would, trust me. Well, that's a bit melodramatic, but you get my drift. There was more, but nothing interesting, or anything even equally uninteresting, but only more uninteresting. Really. Melissa Billings books, 'The Wild Side Series¿ and her others, are highly derivative and unoriginal. In 'Heroes' there is no originality, and there is very little action. As soon as I saw the book, I knew I was in trouble (or it was), as it is twice as bad as its predecessor (Bizarre Endings). 'The Wild Side legacy' is bloated, inflated, and laden with endless descriptions of characters, characters' dress, facial gestures, and other minutiae. Nothing happens. Also, someone must have suggested to Melissa Billings that she should beef up her vocabulary. Her response appears to have been to ingest a thesaurus whole and, like some nauseated seagull, regurgitate indigestible words in a rather random fashion. I'm not done! The characters have almost all been flattened by steamrollers, leaving totally one-dimensional cardboard cut-outs of archetypes and stock fantasy-epic-story generics. No character in the entire ¿Wild Series¿ is likable, realistic, or interesting. Well, now I might be done. I sold my copies of 'Heroes' and 'Bizarre Endings,' with the money going to charity. In this way, those books will accomplish some good for someone. I hope that the characters in these books and their friends can go on without me. If they can't, too bad.
