I like the book cover a lot. It’s simple and the title really pops against the gray picture. It also matches the book before this one, 13 Steps To Evil.
I enjoy Sacha Black’s writing and I loved her book about villains. I had to give the hero one a try.
This book is a simple read with a lot of information. The author reiterates some things from her villain book, uses examples from other popular novels such as The Hunger Games, and completes all the information with nicely done charts and diagrams here and there. I think the charts were my favorite part because I’m a visual learner.
The end of each step, or chapter if you will, was wrapped up neatly with a summary of what that step explained. I especially loved that because, since I have the book on my Kindle, it will make it easier for me to go back to look at certain information again.
10 Steps To Hero was a great read and very helpful. I don’t normally read too many writing craft books, but this is a nice quick read to learn more about main characters and protagonists and get to know your characters on a deeper level.
