Although these books don't take themselves overly seriously like some super-hero series (such as the Wild Cards books), nor do they sacrifice a legitimate story. Thus, you have the legitimate origin story of a young villainess, and her adventures after the death of her villain mentor. While her story arc includes many of the elements you might expect, including romance and a change of heart, you also have sentient chimpanzees and other wackiness.
There are funnier and/or wackier super-hero books, and there are more "serious" / "realistic" super-hero books with more action, books with more finely drawn characters or realistic character development, but in terms of sheer likability, I found this one right up there.
Simply put, this book is outstanding.
It contains amazing action (on an epic scale,) plot twists and turns, fully fleshed out characters, engaging dialogue and a satisfying resolution.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED especially for fans of superhero sci-fi. Even casual readers not normally into this genre might enjoy this book due to it's well-written and likable characters.
It starts off pretty negative and only manages to go down from there.
By the end you will look back ad the sad beginning of the story as the highlight and happy time of the book.
The protagonist don't have much redeeming qualities about them and the so called hero's are worse.
There is not much of a plot and It ends very suddenly. We also don't get a resolution of many of the issues that come up during the story. So while the book wonders all over the place in search of a plot it's ending still manages to feel forced and rushed.
I liked the first book, and that was a pretty dark story as far as "superhero" stories go, but this one never gets as high up as the lowest point in that story.
And with the sad excuse of an ending it has pretty much no redeeming value.
I would have given it a one but it has some original ideas.
I would have given it a three if it had a plot or an actual ending that didn't come out of nowhere and seam to be very forced.
To bad because I was hoping for better.
I should have gone with my impression from the sample. But I figured it was just a slow start. Who knew the sample would be the high point?
