When former socialite and heiress Bremy St James discovers her father isn’t the man she thought he was, she sets out on her own to live like common folks. With no money, no job, and no actual skills she decides her best bet at success is to become a sidekick to her local superhero Dark Ryder. She’s a realistic one. She decides this all while trying to find a way to expose her dads sins, and find away to make enough money so she can start over with her wheelchair-bound twin sister.
I think the concept behind the book was, great, I mean that’s the reason I bought it, but I didn’t always enjoy the execution. I liked the plot with the father—evil genius type looking to take over the world with mind altering technology—but it took so long to get to the point. The whole first half you’re wondering what exactly Bremy is running away from. There seemed to be an homage to other superhero genres…or what I think was an homage to Kick-Ass 2 with the puke ray. But I just felt overall underwhelmed by the book, which was due to the fact that I was in dislike with the main character. She had her moments, but I mostly didn’t enjoy her overly sarcastic, sometimes funny, most times not personality. Anyone else read this book? What did you think?
