DRAGONS IN PIECES: The Maze Beset Trilogy, Book 1

Real superheroes wear denim. All Bobby wanted was a girl to come home to after a hard day of work. Like the last one said before she left, he was going exactly two places—no and where—and he was happy with that. But somebody had other plans for him. A murder. The Terrorist Watch List. For what? Underage drinking? Things couldn’t possibly get worse. Right?

Oh yes, they could. He wouldn’t believe superheroes were real if he weren’t one himself. Tiny robot dragons send him, chasing his humanity and his future, on the trail to discovering his past and a place to call “home.” If he’s lucky, maybe he can get a beer there. –downpour.com

Something else had a kind of control over his individual parts, yet he still could direct each one. All the parts, each the size of a quarter, made a swarming cloud of tiny silver creatures that all were him, yet also not. His mind, the part that he identified as himself, floated in the middle of it all, detached. Trying to explain this to someone else would be a major challenge.”
