aka The Frazzled Mom
For Det. Joanna Fallon, it’s damn hard being a police officer in Galilee Falls, a city with the highest concentration of superheroes and villains in the country, and working under the specter of the city’s champion, Justice. It’s even harder watching her best friend, the man she’s secretly in love, with planning to marry another woman while keeping the growing relationship with her boss a secret.
When the city’s vilest supervillain, acid spewing Alkaline, escapes from maximum security prison, and an attack close to home, Joanna must contend with her increasing fear and prejudices while struggling to choose between her soul-mate and her new-found love.
With a coy blend of whimsy and vivid imagination, Justice delivers humor and thrills in an action-packed and edgy blend of comic book cool, fantasy-noir, hard-boiled mystery, and bitter-sweet romance.
The Consulting Writer’s Review:
Justice is a book of superheros, super villains and the people stuck in between. I was never a heavy reader of comic books, though I have read more than a few in my lifetime. I haven’t followed series involving The Flash, despite him being my favorite superhero. My husband is a fan with knowledge of just about every universe written and rewritten and revamped and revised and brought back to life by Marvel, DC and Dark Horse. He’s the one that pulled me into the online game, City of Heroes. How did I respond? I loved it! Why hadn’t I discovered this world of heroes while growing up?
So when I was contacted about the Justice book tour, my curiosity pushed me to read it. I was not disappointed. Justice is titled after the superhero in the story, a hero with lightning speed and super strength. With the escape of Alkaline, we are quickly introduced to the hero. But don’t assume the book is focused on him. If it were, I have no doubt it would be a boring read, at least for me. Honestly, I have no desire to read about Superman (zzzzzzz). With Jo (aka Joanna), I could identify with her attitude. Despite the starry eyed public around her, she’s less than impressed with Justice. I fear I can’t say much more, otherwise I’d spoil the story. Trust me, it’s worth checking out. I truly enjoyed reading Justice.
For superhero fans (die hard or just starting) this is an entertaining read and one I’d recommend to my friends. For those who love stories with action, love and intrigue, give Justice a try. The writing style is entertaining, the dialogue is smooth and the story is overall good.
Note: I received a free copy of Justice in ebook format in exchange for an honest review.
The year since Galilee Falls lost its reigning superhero Justice has not been kind to Joanna Fallon. She’s lost her best friend, her boyfriend, her badge, even her mind. The city of Galilee Falls hasn’t fared much better with supervillain related crime skyrocketing to cataclysmic proportions. Deliverance for the city arrives in the guise of The Royal Triumvirate–King Tempest, Lady Liberty, and Lord Nightingale–who vow to be the heroes the city needs. Salvation for Joanna appears in the brilliant form of Dr. Jem Ambrose, another lost soul in need of saving. But salvation comes with a high price. When Emperor Cain, an old nemesis of The Triumvirate, decides he will stop at nothing to make sure there is no city left to defend, it is up to Joanna to rise not only for her city, for her new love, but for herself as well…
