Masked - Tour & Review

Limitless Publishing

Vada’s To-Do List:

- Turn 18 (check!)
- Register super name
- Order supersuit
- Attend superhero indoctrination
- Graduate high school
- Start kicking criminal tail

Vada Lawson can’t wait to be a superhero. Born into a family with special powers, she’s been training to fight criminals and villains her whole life. But her indoctrination into the underground super community is derailed when normals start breaking out in superpowers themselves.

Not trained to control their new abilities, the normals are frightened and vulnerable. Then their mutilated corpses begin turning up all over town. What the heck?

Somehow, with the help—and hindrance—of an annoying newly-minted super named Orion, Vada has to stop the chaos before it destroys her and everything she holds dear…and ruins her superhero debut.

No one ever said that being a superhero was easy…

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: It's no secret that I'm a fan of comics and anything superhero related so I was particularly excited to read Masked. I wasn't entirely sure if The Incredibles style superhero approach would work as a YA story without being too contrived or cheesy, but I really enjoyed J.D. Wright's story and loved Vada from the start.

Vada is sassy and hilarious. I loved her friendship with James - every super needs a great best friend/supertech. Nick is particularly intriguing because his introduction to supers is unexpected and unusual. I would have liked to see more of Gypsy - I loved her costume. Henley is insecure and needy; the ultimate frenemy.

The world building is off the charts. I could completely envisage every aspect of the superhero world. I especially liked the lair building and designing superhero costumes. It reminded my of the scene in the new Supergirl TV series where Kara struggles to pick a suit.

I liked Nick and found it particularly amusing how both he and Vada had no idea about each others alter-ego.  

I'm looking forward to the next instalment as the book ends on a cliffy - the scene is set nicely for book two...

4 Stars in my Sky!
