Overview

The Feminist Avenger by Kristina Marrick

The Rosalind City Press asks its Readers:

THE FEMINIST AVENGER: HERO OR MENACE?

The Feminist Avenger: a woman with no name, no identity, and seemingly from nowhere. She swept unannounced onto our city, like a bird of prey. She is known for many things, but is she a hero, or is she a menace? She's put cops in the hospital, and she's saved women's lives. She's responsible for thousands of dollars worth of property damage, and she's put an end to many cases of domestic violence. She's the proverbial thorn in our mayor's side, and she's caught robbers, and muggers, and criminals that managed to escape the police. In short, she is a vigilante. A help or a hindrance, no one can say for sure; but she's always there, one shadow away, with her Japanese sword poised and ready for any who stand in her way. Hero or menace?

The title may turn some guys off, but I didn't let it scare me, and I was well rewarded. This book is a fantastically good time, and not a soul (gender aside) should miss it. The humor and action of this notably long novel keep it moving along at a great pace, but the author manages to touch on so many things that people deal with daily. (I won't go into them, for fear of giving some great surprises away.) This is not a rip-on-men book. This book touches on so many different ideas and genres you can't believe the imagination - yet you never feel overwhelmed or confused. The author here is greatly talented, and her book deserves close attention. You'll be amazed by all the times you were skillfully tricked, yet when you look back at the clues, you realize you were given the answers to the mysteries but you subconsciously ignored them. The clues and forshadowing here are subtle and exceptionally mastered. The characters are perfect. I'm going to read it a second time. I suggest you read it a first.

Kristina Marrick has a very interesting talent. I read her first book and thoroughly enjoyed it. When I learned she came out with this one, I swooped it up, hoping that she kept her comical, cut-&-dry, witty writing style. She did, but that's about all she kept. This novel couldn't be any more different from her first one. The main character, a brash woman who refers to herself as simply "Ven," couldn't manage to be the tiniest bit less like Ted (the main character in her first book) if she tried. It was a wonderful change. Ven was a thrill to read about. Sure, at first she was overly exaggerated as a man-hater, but true to comic book form, she needed to already be set in her flawed ways when the book began. That's why it's so entertaining to watch her change. Change in a character that acts like they'll never change is always the most entertaining. I highly enjoyed the adventures she got up to - my favorites being the episodes where she and her "SK" (sidekick) Lacey go under cover as people who don't really exist. Very funny, and well-written on the author's part...slightly reminded me of "Charlie's Angels," only less flamboyant. The story had elements of mystery, crime, and psychology in it, along with the well-expected elements of comic book story line and character make-up. In short, this was a very enjoyable read, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. And for those of you guys reading this and thinking it must just be a book for angry females, NO, I promise it's not. There's lots of humor, action, and fight scenes that you will love. Besides, Ven lightens up by the end; you might even develope a little crush on her.

This novel couldn't read more like a comic book if it tried. The characters, plot, themes, revealing of bits and peices from the past...everything was like a comic book with descriptions instead of pictures. One great different thing was, however, that everytime you thought you knew who the bad guy was, you were wrong, and you were wrong about his true motive, too. Cool all around. Read it!

This is one of the coolest books I've ever read. I just make it a habit to read everything with the word "Avenger" in the title, and this book was awesome. The characters rocked, and the plot and developement did definitely follow most comic book ideas. The hero's past...the villain...a partnership with the Chief of Ploice...a new sidekick... All around, very cool. Check this out!

I've been waiting and waiting! But this book was definitely worth the wait. Every bit as good as Kristina's first novel, plus some! Once again, her characters were biting and real. There was four narrators in this story and you got to know each of them very well, caring about them, amazed by them, and absolutely loving them! The woman the newspaper dubbed as the "Feminist Avenger" (known simply as Ven) has an incredible character developement journey from beginning to end. She changes and grows so much, and she's mostly unaware of it. She's by far my favorite character: brash, in-your-face, strong, and cocky, but she has such a complex past that we eventually learn about. Guys may dislike her at the beginning of the book, but trust me, as it goes on they'll start loving her! At first, I thought the character Lacey would get on my nerves, but no! She ended up being one of the best characters! Kit was also very cool, and Chief Prescott. And a word of warning: don't even TRY to figure out who the villain (the Gentleman) is, because you will be WRONG! Many times, actually. I was impressed with this book all around. Kristina Marrick clearly knows her comic books, but she added elements of crime, mystery, and growing pains into her story as well. I don't know anyone who wouldn't like this book, so do yourself a favor and get it! :)
