Editorial Reviews


"An ex-cop who can't get a break, Cindy is almost killed in the line of duty. Fate brings her to connect with a high-tech suit, and a weapon to fight back against the real villains.

I received a free copy of the paperback, after being a beta for this project.

First of all - this book is awesome.

Second - my opinion is highly likely to be biased. After a critical review of Luna's debut, I was brought on board as part of his beta team, which means I have been spending the last five years being very open about everything I thought was wrong with various drafts of this project.

Third - I am going to be equally open, and confirm this finished book is awesome.

This is a new superhero story, following Cindy Ames as she becomes the Silver Ninja.
After Cindy's partner (and the son of her boss) is killed, while they are on duty together; Cindy has been struggling to find her way in life. She has her husband, and a couple of jobs to keep a roof over their heads, but everything is perfunctory. The only thing she feels passionate about is hunting down the man who murdered her partner.
Her plans don't go smoothly, and she nearly dies, only being saved by some experimental project.

This is such a fun origin story, as Cindy fights for revenge, and is inevitably led to the suit.
It's great to read a book with such a strong female character, and her (sometimes-)supporting friends and family.
Cindy has to adapt, has to fight for the survival of those she loves. It's interesting to see how far she is willing to go, and what lines she will cross.

Luna has always done awesome action scenes, and this book weaves together some really great ones. What can I say, it's so much fun to follow her as she swings through the cityscape on a grappling hook, and kicking the shit out of the bad guys.

This book lays the foundations for a great series, with the promise of more Silver Ninja, and an enemy in the shadows.

I highly recommend checking this one out!" 
-K.S. Marsden. Author of the Witch-Hunter series. (Amazon UK - 5 Stars)

From the Author

3 years.

That's how long it takes to reboot a series.

Like most nascent superhero stories, some mistakes were made. The 2012 edition of The Silver Ninja used prose that was inappropriate for the genre and characters possessing the charisma of a tax law professor. (No offense to any charming professors.)

In 2014's Indoctrination, the characters improved, the villain became the highlight of the book, but somehow the plot got left behind.

In order to tell the story as it was intended, the reset button needed to be hit.

3 years later, A Bitter Winter arrives.

When you purchase this book, you are buying an experience, a unique perspective, not just a story. This is a novel that breaks away from the standards set by, Marvel, DC, Vertigo, and Image comics. A Bitter Winter deconstructs the classic portrayal of a law-abiding superhero and gives you something that is much more grounded in reality.

As one reader said, "Cindy isn't quite an anti-hero, but she is certainly not playing by the rules."

Let's face it: You won't find another novel that tells a story quite like this. Don't wait three years to pick this book up.
