it was amazing

Mrs. Pankhurst's Amazons don't disappoint!

(Disclaimer: This is a review of an advance copy obtained from the author.)

When I first head about this series, I was very excited that it dealt with one of the most under-represented movements of the 20th (and let's be honest, the 19 and more that came before it) century. But this is a case where the truth far outstrips any fiction, as the bartitsu movement was very real, and it's not at all unbelievable that these women would have taken it up.

Wolf's prose and Vieira's art flow weave a seamless tapestry of action which will leave you wanting more. Indeed, every time I think about this series, I want to read big, thick books on the subject. It's rare to find a short work that opens up your horizons like this, and I think that after you read it for yourself, you'll agree.
