Author: Lee Winter

Description

Earth’s first black, lesbian superheroine has had enough of humanity and disappeared. In this moving, opposites-attract, science-fiction tale, a stubborn tracker is sent to bring her home…any way she can.

Shattergirl is a brilliant but aloof black, alien superheroine, called a guardian, who can hurl and destroy large objects. The world reveres her and other guardians like her, yet she’s suddenly refusing to save people and has gone off the grid.

Lena Martin, the street-smart human tracker with a silver tongue and a disdain for the rogue guardians she chases, has only days to bring Shattergirl home.

As the pair clash heatedly, masks begin to crack, and brutal secrets are exposed that could shatter them both.

An award-winning, opposites-attract, lesbian science fiction tale embracing the special people who pass through our lives and change us forever.

    :

    This was a really interesting read. My first book by Winter. It is a fast paced action packed read that literally left me feeling mentally shattered. I loved it. It had a bit of everything. Sometimes I really wish these books were true. No I haven’t lost my mind I just guess I wish there was more than what we have.

    Anyway back to the book :). It has two main characters with several characters making the story more believable. You have Lena aka Silver a serious competent tracker and Nyah a superhero who just happens to be a black lesbian who loves science. Who has the superhero name of Shattergirl. My childhood dreams all rolled in to one. What’s not to love.

    The cover of the book gives it a comic book feel but I didn’t buy into that. It is a story of life, a story of losses and a story of discrimination. It also talks of equality, friendship and shared experiences. It also talks of being over looked, ignored and wrongful perceptions. Now you know why I felt shattered when I finished the book. It covers a lot and in some detail I might add.

    I’ve read a few other reviews and I’ll admit I agree that the ending isn’t exactly what you expect. But I’ll also admit I liked the end. The two leads will make better friends and companions than lovers.

    The story is mainly about breaking down walls and rebuilding trust amongst different people. Or in the case of this book building a new trust between different worlds. I think the author has done an excellent job combining two very different worlds into a world of trust with a positive future for all. It is well worth your time reading this book. Just be aware you may feel shattered at the end. Enjoy!

    :

    Lee Winter has a rare and unique writing talent. This book is no exception.

    In this tale of redemption, Winter brings you a thoughtful look at humanity from the perspective of a disenchanted superhero. This ice queen is matched by a human tracker who is equally unimpressed with the superheroes she is sent to track and together they make for some eye opening, funny and delightful moments.

    Winter does a superb job at world building and Secotra is vividly brought to life.

    A great read. And as will all of Winter’s books, you will never read another book like it. Plus, it has a truly awesome sex scene.

    I can’t say it any better than the preceding two reviewers. I would love a sequel.
