this is Stan Lee We re about to embark the exploration of a fantastic new universe and the best part is that you are gonna create it with me I never thought I would hear his voice again expect from some videos on YouTube, but here he is, sharing his brilliant mind with his audience for the last time The Man The Myth The Legend Mr Stan Lee You may cry, you ll explore, and you ll see yourself in some of it You ll try to imagine the scenes and take the gift of a beautiful message with you You may know me as a storyteller, but hey on this journey consider me your guide I provide the witty and wonderful worlds and you create the sights, sounds, and adventures All you need to take part is your brain So take a listen and think big, no bigger, we make it an epic Stan Lee s Alliances A Trick of Light AudibleCreated by Stan Lee, Luke Lieberman, and Ryan Silbert with it co written by Kat Rosenfield, A Trick of Light is the first instalment in the Alliances series, which combines new heroes and their adventures in a fast evolving world It also focuses on what makes us unique and the need to be connected and to not feel alone What makes this project evenspecial is that we cannot dive into the pages of a comic book and see the story unfold before our eyes, but instead, you are invited to create this world by yourself while listening to Yara Shahidi s The Sun is also a Star, Grown ish voice.Within the story, 17 year old genius hacker, Nia, is the loneliest girl in the world Her world consists of only two people, herself and her father She spends her days in a hologram classroom to learn everything there is about the world she so desperately wants to experience for real She is not permitted to get out and know anyone in person, but she is allowed to go online and have her own social media accounts But this is not enough for her and she intends to free herself.Then there s unmuscular nerd Cameron who goes out on his boat to shoot a new video for his YouTube channel when a storm appears, and he is struck by lightning This video will bring him the attention he was looking for at last Finally, he will become famous Waking up in hospital, he realises that he has changed and he is able to connect to every electronic device He is overwhelmed by the sudden onslaught of information, and it seems he has become cyberkinetic With technology ever evolving, Cameron also puts his new abilities to use and creates VR contact lenses and AR goggles.Cameron must now accept what he has gained and soon he meets Nia in an online game They quickly become friends and have the idea to create their own space in the internet where they are safe from everyone who monitors online activities At some point, they cross paths with OPTIC who wants their skill set for their own evil plans However, no one is aware of the mysterious galactic threat which is on its way to earth to destroy humankind.Together and with the help of Cameron s best friend, Juaquo, and Nia s father, they have to have the power to master even the most impossible situations Remember when I created characters like the Fantastic Four and the X Men We were fascinated by science and awed by the mysteries of the great beyond Cameron, Nia, and Juaquo all had at least one person in their lives which they loved, but they still felt alone For them, and many of us here in reality, the internet provides connections and the ability to meet others so A Trick of Light really explores this evolving way of connecting with people For Nia, the digital world is everything she has She calls strangers friends even though she probably will never meet and still, she is grateful that she has them However, as much as the internet connects us, it can also divide us with many spending the day in their own bubble checking social media and not spending time in the real world Today we consider a nearer deeper unknown one inside ourselves we asked What isreal A world that we are born into or the one we create ourselves As the story progresses, Nia discovers that most of her life was a lie and she does not know who or what she is any, while Cameron discovers how Nia was involved in his freak accident that caused his powers Juaquo on the other hand has to ask himself if he still wants to hold on to his past, or slowly let go of it and star truly living These three characters really embody how many young people, and really people of any age, can feel lost or out of touch at some point in their lives It shows that no matter what they are facing, they all want to feel accepted as the individuals they are You have to believe in yourself and find that confidence The trio also find themselves in a battle against a cosmic evil power and they have to find their true power within themselves They have to realise that they do not need to stay on the path they happened to be on just because someone or something has put them there.Online or offline, we are the masters of our fate As we begin this story, we find humanity lost within is own techno bubble With each citizen the star of their own digital fantasy But the real conundrum is, just because we have the ability to recreated ourselves, should we Excelsior For the last time, Stan Lee has not only has given us a new adventure which takes place in our modern world, but he also shares with us his wisdom and gives us a last powerful message We are all seeking acceptance We want to be a part of something and know that we are loved and give that love back We want to connect We need to connect We are stronger together and both respect and love are stronger than hate Thanks to creation of the internet, we have the possibility to reach out and do farthan we can imagine, if we chose to use it wisely.You will not find a stereotypical superhero in this story You will find a group of young adults who use the technology around them to conquer loneliness and even an unknown galactic power In a way, it s almost a metaphor as there s times where it feel like we will never be able to conquer something, but in fact only need to look inside ourselves and around us because the answer could be right in front of you Without giving too much away, Nia s journey is the one that shows the path which we all have to take at some point.Although it s a new original story and a new story universe, there are some hints that Nia, Cameron, and Juaquo s adventure is taking place in the same universe as previous stories in which we get to know Thor or S.H.I.E.L.D As the book ends, we know that the cosmic threat will take a bigger part in the upcoming books and that three people fighting it will not be enough They need to build an army A Trick of Light is now available from Audible There s also some good news for those of you, who are not fans of audiobooks as A Trick of Light will be available in print this September Thank you to Audible for providing The Nerd Daily with a copy in exchange for an honest review A teenage boy and a girl with

said My ebook version was a moderate 350 pages It had a US 2019 copyright I received it free with myPrime subscription I now suspect that thepublisher gives away books it early determines nobody is going read to put a lot of eyeballs on them Stan Lee was an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, and film producer He never wrote a novel, but always wanted to He passed in 2018 at the age of 95 years old That was 10 months before publication of this book.Kat Rosenfield is an American author of YA fiction She is the author of three 3 novels, including co authoring this one.I got to the end of Chapter 3 and stopped reading This book was in trouble with me with its very first sentence The RUDE BEEPING of the alarm echoes down the long, dark corridors like a shriek, but Nia doesn t flinch at the sound, or even stir.It never got better Chapters alternated between the female teen protagonist, Nia and the male teen Cameron I frankly found the narrative, both dialog and descriptive to be clunky, despite having a hip new Millennium veneer Cameron s inner dialog was in places amusing, but generally banal Nia s inner dialog was terribly needy Action sequences were choppy, and I m not just referring to the stormy waters of Lake Erie Pacing was very front loaded for the Cameron character, but drawn out for the Nia one.Earlier this year, I became interested in this book when I read, Stan Lee s first novel for adults to be published this autumn Lee never wrote a novel, but was on record as always having wanting to This was it I naturally expected an adult story of heroism, dated wise cracks, mis quoted Shakespeare, angst and self doubt with a New York, Jewish slant Basically, an adult riff on Golden Age Spider Man without the shackles of the Comics Code Authority CCA Like fanfic, only Stan the Man authentic.I should have thought about it Lee was 95 years old when this book was being written It s also alleged he was confused and under the malign influence of his business manager at the time How could he have contributed to writing the book I was expecting He didn t Rosenfield was truly a Ghost Writer I can t find an inkling of anything written by Stan Lee or inspired by him in the narrative in this book The exception is the Introduction which is signed by Lee I frankly have no interest in reading Rosenfield s awkwardly written YA story about angsty teens.R.I.P Stan Lee You never did write that bookExcelsior I was completely caught off guard to find that Stan Lee had onesurprise for his fans, hidden up his sleeve an audio novel, no less As soon as the book was announced, I wanted to listen to the snippet provided by Audible, and by the first few moments, I had completely lost myself to the magic of this special book I already knew with absolute certainty that this book would be my next Top Favorite Book of the Year Stan Lee created a new kind of super hero story, one that s really refres I was completely caught off guard to find

moments, I had completely lost myself to the magic of this special book I already knew with absolute certainty that this book would be my next Top Favorite Book of the Year Stan Lee created a new kind of super hero story, one that s really refreshing, yet still typical of Lee s body of work And, I loved both of our new, super hero protagonists, Cameron Ackerson and Nia, who are introduced in this book I ve got my fingers crossed so hard right now, hoping that there s gonna be another book or two to finish out the overall story ARCI hope Stan can hear me from beyond the veil, when I say thank you, for this final bit of joy, from you to me to everyone I d also like to thank Kat Rosenfield, Stan s production team, and the narrator, Yara Shahidi, for harmoniously blending this book into one perfect, and delightful package Bless you Stan, for bringing such Joy to so many of us, for so many years Rest in peace, and harmony Let s be honest, I mostly picked this up because it has Stan Lee s name on it But then, let s be real about this too, this book was not written by Stan Lee alone It s based on his ideas, questions and characters, but written or at least co written by Kat Rosenfield It s actually an audiobook project, but I read the print version.Story time I joined the Marvel fandom very late end of 2019 to be exact But when I finally did, I sort of threw myself into these movies with my everything I ve Let s be honest, I mostly picked this up because it has Stan Lee s name on it But then, let s be real about this too, this book was not written by Stan Lee alone It s based on his ideas, questions and characters, but written or at least co written by Kat Rosenfield It s actually an audiobook project, but I read the print version.Story time I joined the Marvel fandom very late end of 2019 to be exact But when I finally did, I sort of threw myself into these movies with my everything I ve never read any of the comics, but still, of course I know who Stan Lee is So I was incredibly curious about his book Alliances A Trick of Light is aor less typical ya sci fi novel The beginning was a bit slow and for a while, I didn t really know where it was going Unfortunately, I hated the writing style this book is written in 3rd person present, and I have never been, and never will be, a fan of that The writing style slightly gave the impression of reading a comic book, and in fact, I could picture the story very well as one or as a movie I gotinto it theI read, but it still bothered me until the end.There are two main characters, Cameron and Nia I neither loved nor hated them they were good characters but not outstanding Of course, there s also the ya typical romance, but it s not a big part of the book and I liked seeing their relationship develop Cameron s backstory or maybe I should say origin story was interesting and his powers were fitting.There are also a couple of other characters not going into depth here who added to the story and I liked finding outabout them and learning their backstories and motivations.The story was after the plotline became clearer to me fast paced, action packed and offered some cool and unexpected twists And it was sciency Computer sciency to be exact Lots of stuff takes place in the virtual world and has to do with coding and hacking This didn t bother me, but it might some readers To me, it made the book kinda interesting, because that s the world we live in I m writing this review on my smartphone, our daily life is unimaginable without technology and I can t imagine where we ll be in just a fewyears.What I liked were the different villains or are they With a bunch of characters you can t really be sure about this, and that s always something I love In the end, this book was only the beginning of something bigger, like the first adventure of a new superhero I guess there will be a sequel one day in which the characters have to join forces again Also, there were a few references to the MCU that made me smile Oh, and the prologue written by Stan Lee himself made my heart ache a bit In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but the writing style annoyed the heck out of me I would ve enjoyed it a lotif it was written in 1st person or at least past tense, ugh It was a rather typical ya superhero sci fi story that offered a quick read and some hours of good entertainment I would ve expected a bit , but I still liked it I only think readers shouldn t expect the beginning of a new era of superheroes Alliances All Cameron wanted was to be famous but now

get my hands on it.I was ready to behold the culmination of his unpairable career and was sad to be disappointed.When I understood that the co author for this book would be an author of YA fiction I didn t know, I just hoped it was to assist him in the transition from comic book writing to prose, to help him get acquainted with the new medium and allow the full potential of his ideas to shine through.Now that I ve finished reading, I am not afraid to claim that I have my doubts on how much Stan Lee was actually involved in the composition of this book At best, he might have given the idea for the main characters and a jist of the final resolution, but little else.What I ended up reading, instead of a deep and dated tale on the ethics of heroism, good vs evil and satire, I stumbled onto a fantasy YA with a weak marvel theme There was nothing original about it, from the powers, to the villain aliens, to the instant teen love, to the awkward narration, to the unimpressive dialogue.I m glad that some other readers seem to have really enjoyed this book, but forgive for hoping it won t reach a very wide audience I m afraid this sad piece might, ever so lightly, diminish their opinion of Stan for putting his name on a novel I really don t think he had much to do with, at the esteemed age of 95 Thank you Stan, I ll always remember you for everything BUT this R.I.PExcelsior This was such a refreshing read via Audible Let me tell you what The way that Stan Lee excitedly introduced his new book really tugged at my heart strings The world lost such an amazingly unique human, and I am so glad I got to experience his last project This took place in a futuristic world that is so alarmingly similar to the way ours is going that it made the story that muchreal I enjoyed it whole heartedly It even threw a few twists that I didn t expect. a trick of Traduction en franais exemples anglaisA trick of nature meant to confuse and annoy Un tour de la nature, cens confondre et ennuyer
