A review by John Irvin


“They were tombs, especially built to house the bones of the tribe’s religious leaders. Our pyramid would appear to have been built for a different purpose entirely. Religious, perhaps.””

            From the back cover blurb:

            Something has been unearthed in Gotham City, something that should not have been disturbed. An ancient pyramid has unleashed supernatural energies throughout the world.

            Drawn to the eye of this arcane storm, the heroes of the JLA become caught in a grip of a force far beyond their extraordinary powers. Only Gotham’s protector, the Batman, manages to escape—but to free his allies and stop the chaos that is fast engulfing the world, the Dark Knight must somehow unlock the pyramid’s secret curse.            Starting off at a hook point—the Gotham City dam breaking up—this book pulled me right in. When the ancient pyramid was uncovered by the flood waters, I wondered what was going to happen next.

Batman: The Stone King (Justice League of America) by Alan Grant, A Review

            The struggles thrown at the Justice League are powerful. This urban fantasy is an intriguing volume of arcane mystery and ancient lore. Will the Caped Crusader be able to rescue his friends? That’s the question asked and the question answered in the end.

            I enjoyed the brisk and to-the-point style of the writing. Being a Batman fan as well, I was rooting for him the whole way.

            Plus, it’s not too long of a book either—you just might enjoy it.

            So, take my recommendation and click this link to go buy it: THE STONE KING.
