Superheroes: Zootopia edition! Except this one ain’t some crossover with an existing superhero franchise or even an AU where the characters assume the roles of beloved superheroes of yore. Instead, Untraveled cooks up a tale in which every denizen of Zootopia has some kind of special ability — including Nick Wilde, who just got out of jail, and Finnick, who’s the first mammal he sees when he gets out. What ensues is an enjoyable story that delves into the powers each character as while unfolding a plot in which some mammals — such as one Judy Hopps — use their abilities for good against those who might consider the opposite path. Rated M for language/violence. ~YFWE

Description: Set in a world where every mammal has super powers. Nick Wilde is released from prison after 15 years. Branded a criminal and terrorist and bound by a red collar called a “Kill Switch,” the fox tries to piece together his life. His world is turned sideways once again when a friend is murdered and displayed on the steps of the Hero Association, where the killer left Nick a message.

  1. Sounds like a good time all around! It’s quite interesting how Untraveled reveals the culture of this version of our beloved Zootopia. The author makes use of informative codex entries at the end of each chapter,and little tidbits of lore integrated seamlessly into the story itself.

    Not to mention his often humorous author’s notes at the end of his chapters, which add a much appreciated personal touch.

    Oh, and if you ever happen to need an editor, it seems Untraveled knows a guy.
