Reconciliation story (love them), smart and geeky heroine, pining hunk of a hero, a kick ass pair of boots, and more ninjas than you can shake a (chop)stick at. The best way to describe this novella is "fun." I enjoyed reading it. Who doesn't want to be a superhero when they grow up? I think the most enticing thing about Cons is that they give "grown ups" the chance to recaptur ...more
Totally enjoyable superhero fantasy novella. The boots are magic and turn her into her superhero comic character. Now she just needs to decide if the guy that got away is worth the effort to chase or not. Fun and campy.
Hailey Hills writes a comic called Karma Kitty. While at the NY Comic Con, strange things start happening in Hailey's life. Again. It seems her new shoes, ordered from hiheelia.com have the ability to turn her into her comic book charac ...more
Hailey Hills is one of the comic book creators of the popular, Karma Kitty. She arrives at the famous New York Comic Con for the first time with her comic book artist, Thomas. She is anxious about the event because her ex-fiance is going to be there and she hasn’t gotten over him since she left him at the alter because she was kidnapped by alien cats. That’s right alien cats. Strange things happen to Hailey and she wasn’t expecting the boots...more
Ok, so what’s this story about? Uh, I don’t remember (sort of). Karma Kitty Goes to Comic Con is a novella so it’s supposed to be short and a quick-read, but it’s also unremarkable. There isn’t much that happens in the story that’ll leave you wanting more or even recommend it to someone. In all honesty, the only reason I read the novella is because (a) it was free on Amazon and (b) Mari Mancusi also wrote the Blood Coven Vampire series, a s ...more
And then it turned out contrived, convoluted and outright pointless. The HEA (and main conflict) came more thanks to divine intervention than actual work and effort from the heroine. And she tries to convince us she's a "geek" or "nerd" or part of the culture, but all she gives is the impression that the author only has passing knowledge of the culture an ...more
I like the new cover (it's not the one here on Goodreads), it reminds me of the costume my very own kiddie kitty wore to Anime Expo.
1) It's an adult book, not a kid's book, and it's nice to vary my reading a bit from time to time.
2) Comic Con. Seriously. This alone is a selling point for me.
3) The main character gets super powers from a kick-butt pair of boots.
4) It's fun. It doesn't try to take itself too seriously.
5) It's a fast read and full of action.
6) It's only 99 cents!
So if you're a fan of ereading, this one is totally worth checking out.
