The Year: 2120.
What: A Genetically Engineered Biological Weapon.

...Her eyes open, but there is no light. There is only darkness,
and the four corners inside of a small plastic box with the sounds of high pressure air rushing past. She slides her fingers across the top edges and sides of the box, smooth and hard. Thump, the box bounces up and down over the carpeted cargo floor. She sits curled up in silence, waiting for the darkness to pass and for the rays of light, knowing what she must do to gain entrance.....

Meet the Author

Ami Blackwelder is a Paranormal and SciFi author. Her stories range from Tween & YA to Adult. Growing up in Florida, she graduated UCF and in 1997 received her BA in English and additional teaching credentials. Then she packed her bags and travelled overseas to teach in Thailand, Nepal, Tibet, China and Korea. Thailand is considered her second home now. She has always loved writing and wrote poems and short stores since childhood; however, her novels began when she was in Thailand.

Having won the Best Fiction Award from the University of Central Florida (Yes, The Blair Witch Project University), her short fiction From Joy We Come, Unto Joy We Return was published in the on campus literary magazine: Cypress Dome and remains to this day in University libraries around the USA. Later, she achieved the semi-finals in a Laurel Hemingway contest and published a few poems in the Thailand’s Expat magazine, and an article in the Thailand’s People newspaper. Additionally, she has published poetry in the Korea’s AIM magazine, the American Poetic Monthly magazine and Twisted Dreams Magazine.

    Not great

    The writing was good but the drawings were VERY childlike and not in a good way.

    Rain... a "graphic" novella. This just has a single pi

    Rain... a "graphic" novella. This just has a single picture with each chapter heading; hardly a graphic novel. The drawings are not good, but they are hysterical, apparently done with colored pencils, and badly. Putting that aside, the story itself is completely ridiculous. There are no governments anymore, but there are resistance fighters fighting against the governments of America and China... which is it, author? Is it complete anarchy or no? The lead character's main power is hyperhidrosis and extruding shin and wrist knives from underneath her rubbery skin.

    Alright, the story is ridiculous and the protagonist, but hey, put into simple terms, even Spiderman can be bad, right? A nerd is mutated by a spider bite. That sounds ridiculous, right? Is the story any good? The answer is a resounding NO. It's badly written, changes tenses, avoids the action scenes altogether, and to me, the protagonist is what is termed a "Mary Sue", canon Sue in this case. At one point, when there is an attack on a village she's staying in, a hut is firebombed, and Rain stops a kid from going in a burning house... then kidnaps him, without ever checking to see if his parents are alive. The kid is ok with this evidently, and then she abandons him to some local hippies.

    If nothing else, I laughed my ass off, but I don't think laughter is what the author was going for. Sadly, not as funny as the Eye of Argon, so it won't even reach cult classic status. Maybe next time.
