Review by Anne Plaza for my novella, “Bayani”

Sharing a wonderful review and interview for my novella about Philippine politics, mythology, and superheroes, set in the year 2050 in Metro Manila


Paquino was depicted as the son of a business tycoon, a privileged individual in his own right, but also a man torn by guilt and remorse about his past. He was the president who, in today’s times, did the right thing as expected of his office. But this is the Philippines, the land where the adage “damn if you do, damn if you don’t” is something that happens in the literal sense. I loved Paquino as a flawed character, and I think his actions were justified by the motivations and personal cross he carried.
