A title that saves itself from itself (Posted on 11/21/2014)
- It's a nice take on superheroes, and the story focus on one particular character. The whole of the story is on this character's shoulders and at times it teeters because you start to wonder if this is even a character you should really like or even consider finishing the CD set. But, she (the character) feels real in a way that makes a person really doubt the path she paved with her life. I know the biggest question a lot of viewers will have is: is all the sex really necessary? While I can't answer that, I would recommend this title to someone that wants to try something a little different. Though...I don't think this will have a sequel.

It's not terrible, it certainly has its moments but there are some major issues. The story bounces around quite a bit, particularly with flashbacks and does not always make a lot of sense at first.
Some people complain about the sex scenes, but although it's a major plot element, it's mostly inferred, however it is a bit overdone.
The story itself doesn't really go much of anywhere and there is not a strong feeling of catharsis when the story is done. It meanders a bit from here and there and is FAR too melodramatic for my tastes.
There are a few fun scenes, and I have heard worse GA titles, but I was pretty disappointed. However if you want a superhero space soap opera, this may be a perfect pick for you.

- like the avenger they keep you on the edge of you seat
Only Superhuman (Posted on 8/2/2014)
- Really good storyline. Though she comes to terms with who she is at the end, I would really like a series to continue.
Almost... (Posted on 7/16/2014)
- The story is good , the voice acting is fantastic. This has amazing potential for a series. I'd just like to see a little more substance and less sexuality

- My ratings is completely based on the plot of the story, and should not deter you from checking out any other GraphicAudio production because honestly this will make you want you money back.
Absolutely great! (Posted on 5/1/2014)
- The story had me listening on my business trip to the point where I didn't want to get out of the car. The characters were very animated and colorful. Some of the situations are hard to relate to because of the books environment and language. But overall, a great book.
it's ok (Posted on 4/11/2014)
- took me a min to get into it but yeah it's good
Not bad (Posted on 4/4/2014)
- very different take on superheroes. Hoping there's a followup to these characters
oversexed drivil (Posted on 3/8/2014)
-Once again, the acting is great, and sound effects are spot on.
-At time, the ideas in the plot have potential.
-way too much (and at time underage) sex.
-Often the main characters are unlikable, and show they have very little value in human life. This is fine if you are the villain of the tale, but this is from the hero.
-The author uses sex a character growth and power,
Intriguing Experience (Posted on 2/18/2014)
This book is overall excellent and further improved by the work of everyone involved at Graphic Audio! The action, themes, story, voice acting (especially for Emerald and Psyche, but the others did very well too), music, and sound effects were handled extremely well. The social commentary and especially the philosophical discussions were conveyed in a solid manner, but with awkward timing (not GA's fault by any means).
If I may be so bold, even the portrayals of sex (i.e., the women voice acting the grunts) managed to be superb and... extraordinarily refreshing. I hope that Graphic Audio would consider more books with these kinds of scenes, and portraying them as was done with Only Superhuman.
Verdict: VERY enjoyable listening experience and looking forward to more!
Review (Posted on 9/6/2013)
- Great story and great performances. Enough twists to keep interested. The character development is interesting to follow. Hoping for a sequel...

- While Only Superhuman is not one of my personal GA favorites, it is an excellent, emotionally intense, action-packed science fiction novel with strong superheroic elements... I would definitely buy a sequel...
Review (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Fantastically done and nicely paced- this is a one-shot book at a world similar to Elizabeth Moon's Vata's War series, with more sex, more light-hearted humor, yet with a serious undercurrent that will keep you interested.
The last part where the TSC got taken back onto the right track seemed strangely rushed...I was really looking forward to a big showdown with Tai, and then it got covered over in like one paragraph- not sure if it was written that way or was the result of abridgement.
The performances were fantastic as usual, especially on the part of Emerald and Psychi.
Some parts of this book can come across as a bit crude, especially with the casual way sexuality is flaunted- but that too is part of its charm in a way.
What I think is the most impressive performancewise is when Emerald tries to go into a speech of right and wrong and she comes across as awkward yet definitely sincere.
The work on Emerald's childhood voice is also noteworthy- some times children voices can come across as kinda fake, but this one is very convincing.
Review (Posted on 5/23/2013)
- I have mixed feelings about this particular title. Honestly, I thought that it would be a bit more tongue in cheek with a more humorous side. It is a good story with many twists and turns and contains a lot of tortured soul type of drama. I thought it got a bit bogged down in the drama department. Nevertheless, I did enjoy it.
