One thought on “Untouchable

  1. Justin

    I was looking for something light, without angst or drama, and the cover of this caught my eye while browsing s Best Sellers in YA Gay Fiction It s soooo not my kind of story and I m sure the intended audience for this is probably teenagers I don t know what I was thinking but I bought it anyway Turns out it was just what I needed This is a sweet and funny short story about a young man 16 yrs old who suddenly finds out he has superpowers The writing is good and the story is entertaining The main [...]

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review I don t usually read superhero books, but I couldn t pass this one up Untouchable is a fun, easy read The writing is great and I really enjoyed how quick the story moved along I m not one to give spoilers in my reviews, but I will urge you to read this book This is definitely a book I ll be reading with my kids I m looking forward to seeing from this author.

  3. Nemo (The Moonlight Library)

    It was OK, but did I like it Everything seemed completely average or not very imaginative, the super powered girl became a damsel in distress, and the romance was completely lacking, not to mention our hero is a cheater Further insights to come if I feel like it but at this point, not likely.

    Figured I d use this space to answer a few of the most common FAQs about UNTOUCHABLE Without further ado1 What s with the length It s a novella That means it s a little shorter 54 pages, to be exact More and , people are looking for light, quick reads to snack on UNTOUCHABLE hits the sweet spot between slim novelette and sprawling epic 2 Will there be a sequel I m honoured whenever someone asks me this Yes But and it s a big but I m not sure when I ll get around to it I ve pounded out an outline [...]

    From my blog ARC given in exchange of an honest review.This book came to me a bit by chance, thanks to the author who asked me if I wanted to help him for the realease of his first book Because I have a soft spot for first publications and YA stories, I was happy to help I liked the cover and the blurb so I asked if I could have an ARC I m sooo happy I had the chance to read Untouchable before its release It would have been a shame to miss this goodread This is the first story I read about super [...]

    fun, quick and fairly cute, Untouchable is a Superhero story written with a loveable voice My only critique is that I want to see , since this was only a novella I d love to see where the author takes these books.

  7. Donna

    I am a 56 year old grandmother, and upon finishing this story, my first thought was that this is something that I would like my gay grandson to read if I ever have a gay grandson It was like watching Saturday morning cartoons, but with a twist Which for me was a good thing Is this story for everyone NO but, it tells a story that everyone needs to read Acceptance for who we are, whether it be gay, having superpowers or just your everyday Joe trying to get by we are all important and deserve to be [...]

    This review was originally posted on karaneleniAussie author S.A Starcevic s first Teen YA Urban Fantasy Superhero short story with an LGBT romance twist, UNTOUCHABLE, is a quick and amazing read It was easy to get inside the head of the main character and narrator, Ethan, as he discovered his new life as a teen superhero Think Lizzie McQuire, but teen boy instead And so much bettere SUPERHEROES Starcevic just released UNMASKED, the follow up to UNTOUCHABLE, and I just finished Review up soon.

  9. Casey Carlisle

    Fun, campy, everything you d expect from a superhero tale But Untouchable was a little too short There was little world building and hardly any time to give the characters back story or motivation It just jumped straight into the action The narrative has a comedic dry wit that is pleasing, and I wish this had been longer, developed because Starcevic s writing style is brilliant I staggered a little catching up with the lingo as well Without the landscape being step up and time taken to explain [...]

    This was cute It was faced paced, quick, and promised exactly what it delivered LGBT superheroes I like LGBT books I like superheroes, so this was a no brainier for me.In all honesty, this book would have worked better as a full length novel, just because there was so much that could have been done with the characters Starcevic created Most of the characters were original enough, but the villains could have been better developed I know this is a novella and there can only be so much done in so m [...]

    I received an ARC in exchange for a review Before I started reading, I thought it was curious that the book only has 54 pages, yet the description of the book suggests that there s quite a story going on When I started reading, it didn t take long for me to notice how that played out the story was very rushed, which made the story sometimes feel very forced Characters didn t act naturally I always like to say that characters are the base of a story if you have good characters, you ve got a good [...]

  12. Rachelle

    I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review To be honest, superhero books aren t really my thing, but I couldn t pass up the opportunity to read this one The cover immediately drew me in, and the blurb sealed the deal.Untouchable is a short but well crafted story The characters are really likable and relatable, and Ethan s internal struggle with his feelings toward Greyson along with the new life he s been thrown into is endearing and well thought out, making you want to root for him [...]

    4.5 5 stars I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review Untouchable is a short, but entertaining read, and an undeniably important addition to the superhero genre Full of diverse characters, entertaining powers, and a cute love story, Untouchable is about people than saving the world, and I m perfectly okay with that.Our story follows Ethan Elliot, a teenage boy who is gay who finds himself with superpowers and ends up with an awesome opportunity Ethan was refreshing He was honest, he w [...]

    S.A Starcevic contacted me earlier this week about his novella, Untouchable It s an LGBT themed superhero story Did I want to review it Uhm, super duper yes So without further ado here it is p.s READ IT While it is a short story, it s one fantastic read I highly, xten times, recommend checking it out I was super excited to read a book that featured two things I m passionate about Untouchable did not disappoint The characters are cute, and well established for the first book in this series It has [...]

    Sweet characters but too short to really create something that will stick with you Enjoyed the humor though, and story flow Just I wanted , ,

  16. Patricia Lynne

    I m a bit torn on this book because while I enjoyed it well enough, there were aspects of it that were very underdeveloped that just ruined the enjoyment I think this would have made me fangirl hard if it had been fleshed out into a full length novel My biggest gripe was I didn t get to know any of the characters and at times they were inconsistent.I found it hard to believe that Ethan s parents would just roll over and let him be a super hero There was no But you have school to finish It s dang [...]

    Sweet and heroic.Untouchable is about a guy named Ethan who happens to be at the wrong place and wrong time and BAM he gets superpowers and becomes a superhero.Although it s a really good book indeed, I just wanted and expected from this book Mind you, I enjoyed reading this, but I just wasn t captivated by it It had romance, it had plot, but it wasn t like right there on the bar I happened to put it.I did like the romance in this book though It was cute and I just also wanted from their chemi [...]

    This review was first posted on Northern Plunder, if you want to see reviews please click here.At 54 page Untouchable is a very short read I actually didn t realise this when I first picked it up and read a chapter and went to sleep, the next day I was like why Why did I do that Anyway Untouchable follows Ethan, who at the start of the book is in the wrong place at the wrong time and finds himself in the middle of a supervillain and superhero battle.One thing leads to another and whilst he shou [...]

    I received a copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.Untouchable by S A Starcevic is about Ethan Elliot, a young man who gets sucked into the world of Heroes and Villains when all he wanted to do was break up with his boyfriend Placed in a life or death situation, he discovers his ability to absorb and manipulate energy and uses this to help save his new friends.The plot really adopted the tropes of superhero stories, which is something I really enjoyed However, due to the limitati [...]

    Halfway through I was sad, but only because I knew it was too short I wanted time in this world because I was really enjoying my time in it.I just wanted to magically delay the ending of it somehow I paused at the halfway point and just wished it could be longer Still a great debut from S.A Starcevic.I really loved the characters I mean all the characters The scene with Ethan s parents was wonderful I felt like my parents would react somewhat similarly if someone took a questionable superhero b [...]

  22. Neve

    I received this novella in exchange for an honest review UNTOUCHABLE delivers a short satisfying read, which will appeal to younger teens and superhero fans What Starcevic does so skillfully, is craft a central character not defined by his sexuality Although it is explicitly mentioned, Ethan does come off as an autonomous, layered character who has a sense of purpose and development This is what gives Starcevic s novella it s appeal The theme of identities, particularly hidden ones, will certain [...]

  23. Alex

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review It was the first superhero story I ve read, so I didn t really know what to expect but I really enjoyed it It s a short read, nice and easy, yet interesting The main character, Ethan, made me giggle so many times and his sense of humor is on point I loved his relationship with Grayson, it s super sweet and just made me feel happy I can tell that Lara has an interesting background, but the author only slightly touches on it We don t really know [...]

  24. Emilly

    I was given a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, so here we go The writing was easy to read Very non taxing, which is ideal for a short novella like this one I found it was a good book to pick up and put down in any moments I could spare, however this is probably one most people could finish in a day.The story isn t very complicated, but could have benefited from description and character development There were a lot of characters popping up but not a lot of time to get [...]

  25. Vesper

    I received free copy in exchange for an honest review I have not read book about superheroes before, so I was very excited when I was given this opportunity And I wasn t disappointed Main protagonist of this story is sixteen year old Ethan Eliot, LGBT teen, who discovers that he has superpowers Soon after that, he becomes part of Protectorate and meet others superheroes Ethan is very lovable character, kind, funny and witty I enjoyed his way of telling his story and how he showed us behind the s [...]

  26. Mell

    It s a novella, at 39 pages, but it manages to fit almost everything you would get in a 300 page novel There s action, romance, and some form of a backstory I like that the story has diverse characters, from Gladiatrix being possibly Latino, and Roxy being Asian It s feels fresh, even though some superhero names are cliche I do like Tempest, though The plot is clear, and well written I think this could work as a graphic novel comic book, or perhaps expanded into a full novel I would like to know [...]

  27. Amy Carlson

    Although outside the usual genre of books I read, I was pleasantly surprised when I picked up a copy of this novella.This is the story of Ethan Elliot, San Francisco native navigating his way through the typical teenage drama most kids face from a LGBT perspective As though his life weren t already complicated enough, why not throw in the emergence of a few super villains, and the development of his own super powers I liked this story because it moved quickly, yet gave me enough time to develop [...]
