Ascendance: Dave Hooper, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
There were too many of them. Lucille was nowhere Dave could see, and only a faint mournful sigh reached him from where she lay.... It was time to die, the hero's journey over.
New York is on fire, the streets are overrun, and the Demon Horde is feasting. With the world's greatest city in chaos, all eyes are on Dave Hooper, the superhero destined to save mankind.
But hero or not, Dave is just one man, and he's short of allies. He soon finds himself relying on Karen Warat: art dealer and Russian deep-cover agent. Smart, dangerous and armed with a magic sword, Dave knows not to trust her. He also knows that without her, New York will fall.
While the United States military try desperately to hold off the Horde, Dave and Karen realise that the monsters have a powerful new weapon - one of their best warfare strategists is working for them. With the enemy using the military's own tactics against them, defeat seems imminent.
To have any chance of survival, mankind needs its champion more than ever. The world needs Dave to become the hero he is meant to be.

I was engrossed by the first series, (which saw a US fleet time shifted to 1941), which while it pinched an idea from a truly atrocious piece of Hollywood dreck, it was done extremely well. This new series is a bit of a departure!
"Dave Hooper", is not your average hero. Whilst he does achieve things his basic character is flawed, to say the least. The series appears to have been written very quickly - hence a missing star, but again, Mr Birmingham has delivered a fast paced, action story with a very interesting take on several aspects of alternate history, demons et al. More would be a "spoiler".
We are up to the third book and so far the pace has been consistent, the characters well drawn (if a little off beat) and in total a very enjoyable, light hearted read. Highly Recommended.

Looking for to some proactive responses from the super team, and I'm wondering if all those who have been upgraded are going to be from North America or if other nationalities will be involved, or will it be another "USA saves the day".
Bought all three books in the series and literally couldn't put them down: finished the first two in a day each and would've done the same for the third if that annoying work thing hadn't gotten in the way.
My only ciriticism is that there aren't already another four or more adventures of The Dave available for me to offer up my hard-earned green.
I love the somewhat tongue in cheek style of writing and the flawed main character.
