Review: Origins (Cobra: The Gay Vigilante #1) by Nicholas Bella

Origins (Cobra: The Gay Vigilante Series, #1)



“He saw me as his hero, but I’m nobody’s hero.”

At least that’s what I tell myself. My name is Eric Cayden, and I’m a man with some pretty extraordinary abilities. It’s because I have these superhuman powers, my best friend, Jordan, sees me as hero material. I’m not the only one in the world with special abilities, of course. Some people have already stepped up to the plate and made themselves martyrs, but I’m not about self-sacrificing for the greater good and all that crap. Not anymore. I’ve already bled for my country. Now, I just want to live a normal life in the shadows and make a lot of money doing odd jobs on the side. Is that too much to ask? Well, according to my friend, Jordan, I’m destined to be something better than a glorified errand boy. He thinks I have a higher calling. He thinks I can be a hero. Well, I’m not too sure about the hero part, but I do hate it when bad people get away with doing evil things. So maybe, just maybe Jordan has a point. We’ll see, won’t we?

Warning: This is a novelette serial series that will be coming at you fully loaded with hot, gay sex. Yes, there will be all kinds of bodily fluids splashing and squirting in all directions with each episode. Expect body parts to be sliced, diced, gouged, and even ripped apart because I don’t half step. This is a series intended for adults only, who want a superhero that loves to play dirty… and by dirty, I mean grimy as hell.




I wasn’t so sure about this book. It had some very interesting moments but there’s some others that made it hard for me to enjoy it too much.

The first scene was amazing, I couldn’t stop reading it then, I was very intrigued by what might happen, it was great, I think it was my favorite part of the book. There is also another scene with one of the characters in that scene, it was near the end, and it also was very good one.

The main characters were ok, Jordan was nice, I liked him the most. Now for the other MC he was a hard to like one, I believe he was made with that purpose, but he was an annoying guy, so arrogant, a sort of character I would generally like, but not this time, I just couldn’t care for him.

There were some unrealistic moments in the book that I didn’t like. I know is a fantasy story, is not about that, but there were moments that just weren’t coherent with the rest of the story, like the fact he needed a custom considering some of his abilities, other than that I think it was ok.

Even though I didn’t enjoyed it so much, is a first book of a series and, since the action moments were the ones I enjoyed the most, so I think there are good possibilities of getting  great stories in the next instalments.
