John Scalzi's Starter Villain had me laughing out loud. This twist on inheriting a wealthy relative's legacy is pure fun. Charlie, once a reporter turned struggling substitute teacher, unexpectedly inherits his long-lost Uncle Jake's business. But the surprise is it's a Super Villain business, complete with a volcano island lair and super intelligent cats. The comical journey from teacher to supervillain is a hilarious and imaginative ride. ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker
