About the Author

From the time he put on Superman pajamas and leapt off a flight of stairs, Wilmar Luna has been captivated by stories of heroes saving the day. As he grew older, his fascination with 90's pop culture, video games, and movies filled his overactive imagination with fantastical worlds and legendary heroes.

He found an outlet for his creativity by studying video editing and motion graphics design at Mercer County Community College. After graduating in 2008, he freelanced throughout New York City and has edited numerous indie films, freelanced for the NFL, and also worked with the cinematics team at Rockstar Games. He assisted with the launch of Grand Theft Auto V and was also involved in the creation of cutscenes for Red Dead Redemption 2.

After years of watching his name scroll in other people’s credits (please don’t remove me), Wilmar wanted to develop his own projects and ideas. He decided that if he wanted to tell stories of empowered female characters, paranormal detectives, and ghost stories, he would have to venture off on his own.

Wilmar published his first novel in 2012 and his second in 2014. He also published several horror short stories on Wattpad, as well as concept ideas for a gothic fantasy novel. In 2018, Wilmar completed his novel The Silver Ninja: A Bitter Winter, fulfilling his childhood dream to create an empowered, independent, brand new superheroine for a generation of readers hungry for new stories.

I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. First and foremost, I adore Cindy. She’s spunky, tough, amusing, and a total mess. It’s refreshing to read about a character (especially a female superhero), who isn’t perfect and has actual problems she must overcome. The actions she takes in the novel weigh heavily on her and change her by the end. Her character growth is amazing. I really enjoyed the relationship between Cindy and her husband, Jonas. They felt like a married couple. I’m so thankful there was no pointless love angle (not a triangle because, you know, most love triangles aren’t that. They’re angles), and I could just focus on their good, healthy relationship. Yes, they have problems, but it’s nothing abusive. The suit Cindy gets is pretty cool, and I love that it comes with a price. The action is decent, and Ned’s fate was perfect. I didn’t expect it, but the surprise was beautiful. My only problem was Raymond. He’s not a bad character, but I didn’t completely buy the duality of his character. I’m not sure how the author could have improved this, but there needed to be more with Raymond. Maybe it’s just me. Overall, I loved this book. There were a couple of punctuation mistakes, but nothing that distracted from the story. If you like awesome superheroes that have in-depth character arcs, this story is for you.
