  • H.E.R.O. - Battlefronts
  • H.E.R.O. - Riftguard

The series was created by author Kevin Gerald Rau. (Home page: http://www.kevinrau.com, or the H.E.R.O. Facebook page is at: http://www.facebook.com/herobooks ) The author also creates 3D images of most of the heroes (as well as some villains), and places artwork on both of the sites listed.

The series is set in Metrocity, a mammoth-sized city near the central United States. The timeline is set in 2009, and supers have existed on Earth for approximately 25 years. The emergence of the supers came about from a massive meteor that was destroyed, and now a field of small meteors orbits the planet. Every now and then a meteor shower occurs, and the exploding meteorites release radiation that causes humans to metamorph into supers (one of a group of sub-species - blasters, bricks, elementals, mutants and psychics).

Books 1 and 2 focus on three main characters of the series - Stephanie Quinn (Psystar), Lance (Spartan) and Rael (Black Tiger). Books 3+ add more heroes from the city as main characters. The stories shift between the characters as they deal with villains, disasters, and normal life.

The Homeland Extraordinary Response Organization (H.E.R.O.) is a United Stated federal agency - it allows supers to loosely group together, provides support, pay, and event/crime notification, and generally handles all of the mundane tasks. This leaves the heroes to fight crime and deal with disasters.
