Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Electromancer is a fantasy novel written by Daco. Alexa Manchester was following in her father's footsteps by finishing his pet project. The Magpie generator, which he projected would be the green energy source to finally solve the energy crisis that had the entire planet in its grip, was finally complete. Her company, The Manchester Electric Company, provided electrical power to most of the planet through conventional means, but The Magpie would revolutionize power production. At the heart of The Magpie was a meteorite Mickey Manchester had collected from the nearby Mullgany Mountains. The grand opening of The Magpie was a huge and highly anticipated event; the company's Board of Directors, the Mayor, and all the notables of Kensington City were waiting when Alexa arrived with her assistant, Sigfred Sawyer, acting as chauffeur. After her speech, Alexa signaled to the waiting engineers to power up The Magpie while the crowd cheered, but the festivities were soon interrupted by a massive explosion and ensuing chaos. The city's power blinked out and panic-stricken guests fled the scene. Alexa knew she had to go into the generator room and assess the damage. It's what her father would have done, and she wanted no one else to shoulder the responsibility. What happened in that room would change her life. Daco's romantic superhero fantasy, Electromancer, is clever, action-packed and an all-around hoot to read. Alexa and her valet/chauffeur/butler, the very proper Sigfred, are marvelous main characters in this near-future comedy of manners. The author's superheroes are authentic and creative, especially the descriptions of the crystal-like tones of the enchanting Electromancer. Daco's characters display the classic angst surrounding any superhero; thoughts of sacrificing one's dreams for the greater good compete with romantic feelings that are just too strong to resist. The villains in this piece are likewise larger than life and equally imaginatively drawn. As I read Electromancer, I found myself hoping that some graphic artist would discover it and collaborate with the author on a graphic novel version. When it happens, I'm certainly looking forward to reading it. In any event, I'm looking forward to reading more about Kensington City's superhero and enjoying some of her future adventures. Electromancer is most highly recommended.
Beautiful heiress Alexa Manchester, the hero of Daco’s outstanding new novel ELECTROMANCER, wants to use her late father’s brilliant invention to solve an energy crisis that has crippled the planet. But then a mysterious crime boss known only as Momo sabotages the invention and threatens to destroy the world. The only one who can stop Momo in his pursuit of world domination is Electromancer, whose superpowers include the ability to harness electricity and to fly at the speed of light. In her quest to save the world, Electromancer has some help from the mysterious superhero known as Blue Arrow. Sparks fly between these two larger-than-life characters. Meanwhile, as Alexa struggles to realize her father’s dream in the face of catastrophe, she’s wooed by the handsome up-and-coming politician Bobby Baumgartner and assisted by her sexy chauffeur, Sigfred Sawyer. The sometimes dark, sometimes laugh-out-loud, and always highly charged ELECTROMANCER will appeal to fans of different genres, including romance, thriller, humor, fantasy, paranormal, and classic comics. Highly recommended!
I am always up for a good superhero story. It calls to the geek in me I guess. I don't even mind if they are a bit overly cheesy or corny, as long as we are getting the wink, wink, nudge, nudge from the author/director. After all most superheroes are over the top, bigger than life, caricatures of archetypes. Shouldn't we expect their stories to be the same? When I saw this book, I just knew I had to give it a shot before even reading the blurb. The book is mostly set in Britannia, but also reference two cities called The Big Apple and The City of Angels. Needless to say, I think we can all figure out where the cities are in this parallel universe. Due to the inclusion of Britannia, we gain that wonderful dry sense of humor that can showcase such emotional self-restraint. When that stiff upper lip is juxtaposed against powers that are affected via strong emotions, you can feel and see the struggle the characters are going through. There were a few surprises and twists in the book. Obviously certain characters were more than they seemed, but some characters I thought would be bad guys, turned out to be good guys after all. The action read pretty well, and though there were POVs from several characters, never too many that you couldn't keep track of who's head you were in. This being a superhero story, meant that suspension of believe started with page 1. But the author never went too far out, and stayed true to the feel of the book. I had a good time with this, and in the end I finished with a smile. 3 Stars. Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours and Daco for the opportunity to read and review the book.
