Dimorphic - Cy Wyss (With a GIVEAWAY!)
ABOUT THE BOOK -It's easy to become a superhero.
First, discover a superpower. It might take a while to get used to, though --- especially if it's something as weird as being your twin brother half the time.
Second, recruit a sidekick. Or, two. It'd be nice if they weren't a pyromaniacal sycophant and a foul-mouthed midget, but you get what you get.
Third, and most important, hire a mentor --- preferably not a vicious mobster with a God complex, however, this may, realistically, be your only choice.
Finally: go forth and fight crime. Try not to get shot, beaten, tortured, or apprehended in the process. Good luck!

Read an excerpt:
Author Bio:I live and write in the Indianapolis area. After earning a PhD in Computer Science in 2002 and teaching and researching for seven years, I’ve returned to the childhood dream of becoming an author. I better do it now because I won’t get a third life. Behind me, I have a ton of academic experience and have written about twenty extremely boring papers on query languages and such, for example this one in the ACM Transactions on Databases. (That’s a mouthful.) Now, I write in the mystery/thriller/suspense genres and sometimes science fiction. I know for some people databases would be the more beloved of the options, but for me, I finally realized that my heart wasn’t in it. So I took up a second life, as a self-published fiction author. Online, I do the Writer Cy cartoon series about the (mis)adventures of researching, writing, and self-publishing in today’s shifting climate. I also love to design and create my own covers using GIMP.
MY THOUGHTS -
First - I LOOOOVED this book!
Second - I was so excited to finally do my review, because I LOOOOVED this book LOL.
No, this is not your typical mystery/paranormal book, but that's what I loved about it. This book just "hit me", I got it, it connected with me! Don't you just love when that happens? When you start reading and you just know - this is the book for me!
I fell in love with this book after the very first chapter. It was freakin hilarious! I was laughing so hard, with tears in my eyes all throughout the book! It was exciting, adventurous, and hilarious!
I tried to take this story seriously, I really did. But that is hard to do when you are literally laughing all the way through.
Character development was EXCELLENT. I loved Judith. Loved, loved, loved her. She may be one of my top favorite characters ever! What a great but unlikely superhero she turned out to be. I think this book should be a series :-)
I also loved Goom and Jack, and Kyle (who was really Judith anyway)- everyone was very well done.
There is a LOT of swearing but... primarily from one character. So it was very realistic. Normally I don't like a lot of swearing, but strangely enough I didn't mind it here. It worked! You just expected it from that character, Goom, and it made the book even funnier. He very much reminded me of the character, Ula from "50 First Dates", played by Rob Schneider. Everytime I read about Goom I kept picturing him!
Now this book is definitely not for everybody! But it was definitely for me!
It was pretty crazy, but it was all that craziness that I loved.
