    Worth the Long Search

    After seeing an ad for this book, I spent years searching for it before finding a copy in an out-of-the-way library I wound up at by accident when I received inaccurate directions to a camera store. Having finished it, I've decided to buy it from Barnes and Noble. Why, you might ask, since I've already read it? Because I want to be able to read it again in 20 years.

    Dystopian fiction narrated by a sociopath.

    The main character is a sociopath and a bigot. She has no redeeming qualities. I only made it to page 140 before giving up. I could not feel the slightest bit of sympathy with the protagonist (more of an anti-hero). Her motivations for joining the MTacs are slim, at best, and don't really jive with the amount of hate she feels towards the mutants. The slow pacing of the book combined with an unsympathetic protagonist make this book an agonizing read.

    Cliche, unsurprising, bad voice

    The voice could work, but it doesn't. The author tried to make it sound like a movie script, and guess what, he succeeded: it's just like a script, not a book. Besides that, all the characters are so cliche, I fell asleep after realising that all the people where based on molds from other stories. I tried to give the book away, but it came back...

    Totally fantastic

    When the first super do-gooder Nightshift appeared, he stopped crime with his powers. Apparently, there is some universal need to balance the scale so soon after other superheroes and just as potent supervillains surface. Normal humans watched the fights from the sidelines hoping not to be caught in the crossfire of a car being tossed like a baseball. Everything abruptly changes when the supers fight and Bludlust destroys San Francisco. The outraged human populace passes laws outlawing superdom and special police units form to hunt down these powerful beings regardless of whether they are heroes or villains.<P> Soledad O'Roark joins LAPD's Metanormal Tactical Unit to stop superhumans in spite of the extraordinary high death rate amongst her peers. She scientifically attacks each super by studying their weakness and modifying her weaponry to defeat them. She earns a reputation as a super hunter. However, when she kills a super healer that many claim was an angel, all hell breaks loose, but her biggest nemesis is that her lover is the greatest telepathic villain of them all.<P> Readers will marvel at the delightfully cunning images of a world where superheroes and supervillains battle against one another and against humans for supremacy. The exciting story line is comic book in nature (X-Men like), but purposely done so that the audience ends up with a superb fantasy tale with the acceptable excesses (except perhaps for Manga, but then again there is Nubian Princess) that make for a fun time. Fans who want a superb escape will appreciate John Ridley¿s valiant enjoyable homage to a truly art form with this powerful opening flight of fancy.<P> Harriet Klausner
