For my regular followers, I tend to be off topic, a bit whimsical, and quite personally, it is my blog, I can do what I want. That being said, I bring to you not a romance but something completely different. Mr. Noah Murphy has penned a tale of action, intrigue and your sooooo atypical heroine.
This book got me from Chapter One. The heroine, Liza Emory, sounds like a typical sixteen year old. Cheerleader, just got her license, has to study for a huge Math test. That is until she wrecks her car in the front of a mall, a mysterious axe appears in her backseat, two reptilian helpers named Jonola and Phoenix become her allies. All hell breaks loose in the first five pages, so don’t blink or skip pages!
Now, why do I say this is deeper than you think? Think about it, a sixteen year-old girl is drafted into the National Hero Corps (According to the Revised Hero Recruitment Act of 1997). “If you resist you’ll be branded a villain and will be hunted down and sent to a prison for people like us….” Can you imagine having no choice in being a hero? Can you imagine women being drafted?
This is an action packed Sci-fi read. No, it isn’t romance, but hell, who needs romance when you have an axe-wielding super-girl that puts the chicks in Sucker Punch to shame. I don’t know if Mr. Murphy intended for this to be political satire, but in a way it is. It even takes jabs at internet trolls and the new ‘e-thugging’ era. “They can’t speak,” Meadow said, “but if you give them a keyboard, they don’t shut up.” Let’s face it, there are some people out there that have no backbone until they have a keyboard in front of them.
Give the book a shot. It is deeper than you think.
