The Recruiter hARC provided by the publisher in exchange for fair reviewThis review is also available at my blog Fantasy FindingsFirst and foremost can I say this is a fantastic premise So often in comic book series women are reduced to theelpless damsel in distress trope Modern comics are starting to buck this trend to an extent but the tropes are very much still alive and the general public is still apt to know about Mary Jane Watson always getting rescued by Spider Man than know that the extended Bat family CEO Muscle has both a Batgirl and Batwoman or that Thor is now a woman in Marvel s recent reboot So yeah this notion that someone can go from being the villain bait to the villain fighter is something I can get behind Without spoiling iter origin story is appropriately absurd and fits right in with the likes of Spiderman and the other The Mad Wolf's Daughter heroes who need a little outsideelp to get their powers The explanation behind the explanation even made me laugh it was that greatThe bulk of the book is spent with Hawkes Prey Sonny Hawke Thriller her adjusting toer new life making new friends and trying to wrap Get Over It Fab Life heread around No Prisoners Star Wars The Clone Wars her new powers and a villain named Chelsea whose new to the gig and still working on the villain name and outfit While nothing in this story is overly unexpected it s well done and you uickly grow to enjoy the group of people that surround Gailer mentor Vicki er trainer Ang lica and
