Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light Offers a New Take on Superheroes
It may seem surreal knowing that there are still projects due to release that Stan Lee was part of, but that is exactly the case with Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light.
Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light
Before Stan Lee passed away, he was working on a new project. Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light. Working alongside him were Luke Lieberman and Ryan Silbert. Together they came up with the core concept of this new world.
Kat Rosenfield and Stan Lee wrote the novel together. It may surprise you to hear that none of the names we’ve listed are the narrator of this new novel. Instead, they brought in Yara Shahidi for that job. Shahidi is best known for their work in Grown-ish.
How to Get It
The novel is only going to be available in audiobook format. And you’ll only be able to get it from Audible. The expected release is June 27th, so if you’re interested you should preorder it soon!
In what may be a first for audiobooks, this book will be releasing its trailer in theaters. They haven’t exactly listed out all the movies the trailer will be playing ahead of. There’s one notable exception: X-Men: Dark Phoenix. That hardly sounds like a coincidence, right? The trailer isn’t getting added to the movies until Friday. But at least that isn’t too long of a wait. And you can also find it on YouTube if you’re as curious and impatient as I am.
“Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light introduces listeners to a mysterious young woman, Nia, whose fate is intertwined with a seemingly ordinary Midwestern teenager, Cameron Ackerson, whose quest for YouTube stardom takes him to the heart of the Great Lakes Triangle, where he is imbued with the power to “see” and “hear” a new reality. As Nia and Cameron’s relationship grows, they conspire to create a more righteous online universe, dishing out justice big and small, but wind up crossing a shadowy outfit called OPTIC, which goes after them for its own nefarious purposes. Meanwhile, a threat of galactic proportions emerges, imperiling humanity’s very existence by harnessing our individual desire to connect as the very means to destroy us.”
