Domanski's characters are the right mix of serious, witty and spunky. They could fit in with Buffy's gang and not miss a bit. I love when a character can deal with life-threatening danger, then turn around and deliver a biting, hilarious one-liner. Domanski excels: Mirissa is just the heroine modern readers are looking for. She's funny, smart, and an amazing warrior. But most importantly, she is someone the reader can relate to and care for. The author's ability to mix action, humor and drama means the Omega Group series is a seriously fun read. I'm impatiently waiting for the next book. Come on, MORE PLEASE?

The main, Mirissa. She was fun. Made sense. stayed true to character. And basically didn't do anything accept what she should have done. Perfect. There was that one thing where she was almost ready to argue with her mom in the midst of battle. Very done and cliche the inappropriate timing of the depressed youth asking why did you leave me. But that was short lived and it went on well after that thankfully. The only other fault was the whole "come alone" ploy at the end. Sigh. Why does everyone do this. And more importantly why does every character submit to this demand. Once it would be nice to see a plan b. All in all her journey from who she thought she was to who she really was was perfect from start to finish. She handled her secret in stride. Had her ups and downs but it all made sense.
Her father, Steve. I like him. A good father. A good husband. And another well developed character. I have a soft spot for good characters. And he bought his daughter a pet turtle, Henry. Come on whats not to love about a man like this. And he knows a secret about his daughter and her mother that he's not telling. Oh the suspense.
The mother. Love love love her. I'm so over the women trying to prove themselves in a mans world nonsense that it's refreshing to read a book where man and women are on equal footing as humans and warriors. She is a force to be reckoned with so naturally I like her. And this mysterious letter she sends Mirissa for her 18th birthday. Hmmm. What could this be about. All of this good plot foundation happened, quick and smooth and did nothing but to entice me to want to read on. This book was very well layed out.
Then my favorite character Greco. Dark, brooding, secret past. And hot with a dash of sexy sprinkled with why doesn't he exist outside of fiction. Okay yes he's hot, but he was very well written. And his lack of words made for a very interesting mysterious instead of the annoying who the hell is this person experience. All in all I loved all the characters. The villain, even though cliche, was still fun to read in his own right.
Now to the story. Pacing good. Humor perfectly timed. Action just fun to read. And an undercover love interest. Or subdued is more accurate. All shape this book into a wonderful masterpiece. It had it's faults. Like the above mentioned ill timed almost conversation between mother and daughter. And the annoying cliched villain speech at the end. How easily he was taken down was just like what? And then suddenly he's saveable for some strange reason and... and... lets just say I really detested the quick, easy and blah ending sequence. Too much obviousness and just plain old why? Especially after the preceding stuff being so good. A blah ending is always enough to kill it for me. Especially when under the circumstances there's no way the villain should've lost. Or lived to see the next book.
In any case if you are tired of women trying to make it in a man's world, like action and good characters, and a plot that flows rather smooth mostly. Then this book is for you. In fact it would be a crime not to read it.
That said, the characters are really the strength of this novel. Mirissa is a strong, sympathetic heroine. It was fun to watch her grow from a somewhat spoiled teen-ager to the Amazon warrior destined to save the world. I particularly enjoyed the final showdown between Mirissa and the evil demi-god Daedric.
All round, this is an enjoyable read. I'm buying "Greco" now and look forward to the next book in the series.

Add a whole bunch of cool Greek mythology, the vaguely vampiric Kakodaemons and a story worth reading (in one of the best voices I've read in ages) and you have a completely un-put-downable, well-worth-every-cent book. Or in my case virtual book - it will always have the kudos of being the very first book I bought on my new kindle.
Andrea - I need more from you. As soon as is humanly possible - oh wait - you're half Amazon aren't you?
