    This story was set in a world that was uninteresting and peopled entirely with characters who were unlikeable and boring The plot was predictable but worse than that, it wasn t even fun to follow I read this all the wa...

    I d guess anyone who has any history in comic book dom especially the Marvel Universe when reading this book will find it difficult not to draw a few parallels with the X Men s struggles By the way, this book is so heavy with certain political baggage and hovering racism that I doubt most will be able to miss those either Fine they re there That s all I care to say on or about that If you re getting your instruction or education on political issues or having your views influenced by a book about mutants and super beings there are problems than the views of a comedian, actor, film maker, writer of superhero fiction being in a novel here There are some rather standard plot points here They aren t badly handled and the book itself isn t a bad read Soledad is a driven officer read obsessed who has had her sights on being part of M Tac the police squad responsible for serving warrants on metanormals since just after the disaster that brought about the events of the story She faces a lot of challenges from death to the political machinations of her superiors Not a hard book to read and the story works sort of within it s given reality especially if you have a comic book background there are some problems that bug me, I ll mention a couple later, under a Spoiler Warning I do plan to pick up ...

    bigotry is insidious.antiheroic hero creative use of super abilities excellent use of tactical principles and fascinating exploration of police special unit psychology.not for the faint hearted or sqeamish.i could never tell whether the author was trying to make a point about bigotry or just letting the character be her flawed complex self which i think is one of the best recommendations for depth of characterization i can give it al...

    Started reading this in a used bookstore and had to buy it because it was easier than digging up the copy I had in the basement stashed in places unknown The story is set near future where Soledad O Roark is a rookie on a SWAT team that specializes in taking down renegade superheroes supervillains That sounds far fetched and Hollywood B movie claptrap but the difference is in the way Ridley handles the story and character there s plenty of tech talk for the geeky and there is action, but the novel really unfolds like one of Joseph Wambaugh s police novels Soledad has issues and baggage and develops like a character in a mainstream literary novel The fact that she s a minority and a woman ads to the complexity I knew John Ridley from his stand up comedy bits on Comedy Central in the mid late 90s and saw him briefly at Bouchercon in 1999 where I picked up his EVERYBODY SMOKES IN HELL and LOVE IS A RACKET Still haven t read those, but I probably will The...

    Soledad is tough, and unapologetic Soledad likes weapons, hates freaks Soledad sees the world in black and white, and she is proud of it Soledad hides her feelings from the world Pity her range of feelings hatred loneliness anger is not that vast.Ridley s book presented to me as an original, post 9 11 look on the world of superheroes is plagued by a spiteful, bitchy, untrustworthy protagonist, whose motives are impossible to understand not to mention share Her extremely conservative, bordering fascist take on things is always annoying, and often repulsive Soledad does not learn, and she is happy with that.The book is not badly written if we exclude a couple of temporary, incomprehensible shifts of pov, and the feeling that you are r...

    After a supervillain blows up San Francisco, mutants the only powered people in this setting are outlawed in the U.S. Soledad O Roark is a cop with the LAPD MTAC unit which serves warrants on and goes after mutants, and has to deal with a conspiracy to disgrace her, a complicated love life and her own bigotry.Except she never really does deal with that last bit possibly in the sequel it s interesting that Soledad s black, but aside from a brief mention and Soledad breaking up a dispute between a black and a Korean that doesn t really play into things Soledad and all the other cops just hate mutants, no questions asked The little we re given about why doesn t ...

    This book has a very hard edge, and a lot of profanity It s written into the story well, and is accompanied by a lot of angry feelings and fast action Unfortunately, the story wasn t strong enough to keep my attention.The story started quite exciting, with Soledad on her first call with the Mtac team, facing a ...
