The Never Paradox is the second book in the Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs by T. Ellery Hodges. Gone is Jonathan Tibbs, the college student. In his place stands Jonathan Tibbs, the superhero who is constantly on call to fight the forces of evil. Backed up by a cast of memorable friends and enemies, Jonathan must also overcome memory loss before it is too late. And who is this Rylee woman, anyway?
By chance, I just finished the first book of the Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs, The Never Hero, a few weeks ago, so I had the established storyline fresh in my mind for reading The Never Paradox. I was excited to once again be entertained by the trials of Jonathan and his friends, and I was even more excited to see more of the philosophy and action movie plots dissected and discussed. I was not as excited to have Jonathan's storyline interrupted with frequent shifts in point of view between chapters, but the hard hitting action scenes more than made up for my disappointment.
I recommend The Never Paradox to anyone who likes a superhero story wrought with dark undertones, out-of-this-world supervillains, and a solid mix of drama, humor, compassion, and despair. Hodges is never at a loss for developing interesting characters. Nor does he take the safe road when he delves into political intrigue, religious beliefs, or dynamic world building. I can't wait to see what the next book in this series brings to the table.
