Don't Date Your Nemesis... And Other Helpful Hints For The Modern Superhero

By SamanthaJR All Rights Reserved ©

Action / Scifi

Summary

Maya Kurtis had always dreamt of vigilante justice and superhero status, it was why she signed up to the Sapient+ program to begin with. Problem is, this city keeps far better control over its superhumans than the places in the comics. Instead of sexy costumes and a name to strike fear into the criminal heart, she's just ID tag S+489002, additional details: translocation. Maya, to put it quite honestly, is just another fancy police weapon in just another anti-terrorist squad.

And then she meets him. Calls himself Card Shark, because it's not a gamble if you cheat, and when you're cheating the entire system, who better to ally yourself with than Maya? She’s an inside source and there's nothing that can keep her and her power out. He's got the outfit, the name, and he certainly strikes something into her heart, even if it's not always fear.

Sapient+ promised glory and recognition but they turned her into just another password protected computer entry. Is Shark about to be any different, or is he using her too? And doesn't a double life of villainy still seem a little too far from her original dreams?

Tori Ann Johnson: In the chapter "blame it on the liquor" Nikolai is thinking and it speaks of a body being cremated instead of dumped.... when it should say the opposite- the body was dumped instead of cremated.

IAteYourCookieChild: I've never seen, no, experienced a more three-dimensional character then Iris. Truly. Every time I read these tangible words on a screen, I feel like I've been betrayed by my own reality as it feels like much more than just that. More than words on a screen. As if I'm truly seeing Iris, living Ir...

Kimberly K: This was a very exciting story. I wasn't able to figuratively "put the book down" until I finished it. There were a few grammar mistakes, and there could be a little more backstory for the characters (mostly in how they got to know each other) but it flowed really well and was a fun read. I can't...
