Book Review: Silhouette by Robin Hale

Second read

Still incredibly good. And I just noticed this author released another book at the end of June! So exciting!

I can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like. This may be the most entertaining book that I have read so far this year. Thanks to everyone else for reading it before me and singing its praises!

I didn’t even read the blurb for this before I started reading. So imagine my surprise when it throws you right into the thick of things with humans that have special powers. I never thought I would be into a superhero/comic book-like story, but I suppose there is a first for everything!

Dr. Molly Fawn works in a research lab in Opal City who is also the comm link (and brains) behind Colossal, a superhero that the city calls upon for emergencies. Molly finds herself captured (in more ways than one as you could have probably guessed) by Silhouette, the nefarious master thief.

There was fun banter between Molly and Silhouette. Definitely a lot of attraction. I was rooting for these two despite overwhelmingly bad odds. I mean, how can someone working in tandem with the OCPD possibly be into a thief? Answer: The thief is mostly clad in tight leathers, drives a motorcycle, and is distressingly seductive.

This had everything. Action, comedy, romance, suspense, etc. And I can’t believe that this is a debut offering from this author? There were literally scenarios that were too good for an amateur or first time writer. Stuff that just got me really excited and thinking “How clever?”

So clearly I recommend.
