The Bestselling Superhero Thriller series goes in a bold new direction! Xander Drew must use the formidable powers gifted to him via genetic engineering to stop a new criminal on the streets of Los Angeles: the villainous Blackheart, whose powers bear a striking resemblance to his own! At the same time, a gang war is brewing in Xander’s home town of Coral Beach, Maine which is threatening to decimate the town’s youth — can Xander stop Blackheart in time to put an end to the violence back home?
“Roulette manages to fit a multitude of emotions in each chamber. As Xander Drew finally gains some control of the beast inside, a new threat emerges in Coral Beach and establishes Ledrew’s ability to turn the horror genre on its head is unparalleled.”
Paul Carberry, bestselling author of: Zombies on the Rock
“LeDrew provides his typical pro-level pacing: a few early scenes involving the then-unnamed threat were pitch-perfect. Never a one-note novel, we are treated to moments of sadness and elation, fear and relief. Engen Books always explore a wider range than their base classification would suggest.”
Jay Paulin, Ink’d Well Comics, October 2011
“LeDrew’s work is horror that emerges from the urban fantasy tradition — the introduction of a fantastical element into a true-to-life, modern setting.”

“I’m getting to be very fond of these books .”
