Book Review: “Ex-Heroes” by Peter Clines

How would superheroes react to the zombie apocalypse? That’s the question behind Peter Clines’s Ex-series, the first of which is Ex-Heroes. Before the arrival of the zombie horde, ordinary humans wake up with the realization that they’ve gained superpowers of some sort.
