New Release ARC Review - To the 5th Power (Powers Trilogy#1) by Shirin Dubbin @ShirinDubbin

To the 5th Power
Powers Trilogy #1
by Shirin Dubbin

Goodreads blurb:  Three years ago, Zola Noite's nemesis killed her sidekick and forced her to watch. The guilt drove her to hang up her cape. Zola knows one thing for certain. She will never be a superhero again.

Psychologist Dr. Arturo "Fort" Forte specializes in super-powered mental health. He’s the only reason Zola can once again call herself sane—although, truth be told, the heat between them is slowly driving her back to mad.

When three mega-villains escape the prison Fort oversees, all Zola's best laid plans go up in flames. Fort asks her for help, and she can't turn down the man she's secretly come to love. As battles ensue and clues add up, the one thing Zola trusts is called into question: Fort's true agenda and which side he’s on.

About the Author:  Shirin Dubbin is often called a “chic geek,” and she likes the sound of it. Especially since she’s a closet wallflower (albeit one with a super-heroine styled alter ego). When not working in graphic design or hosting The Fantastic Forum—a celebration of comics & speculative fiction—she writes stories inspired by the art, literature, international cinema, and anime she grew up with.

In her own storytelling, Shirin spins tales of sci-fi and urban fantasy with romantic edge. The battle between good and evil, humor, and break neck action are ink to her imagination.

Culturally, she’s half American, half British and very southern; right down to the accent and love of grits. Government reports show a residence in DC, but Shirin lives largely on the astral plane and hopes to meet you there.

My Thoughts - 3.5 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it!
**Received from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review
Okay to start out, I love the cover.  It grabbed my attention to read it. 
I love superheroes :)  At first, I have to admit that I was confused and lost.  I didn’t get into the book until about half way through and the author totally surprised me because I didn’t see where the ending was going.  I love when an author does that.  I think this book had some awkwardness being the first in the series, but I think this series is going to be fabulous in the coming books.  I definitely wonder about Zola before her retirement and want to read more about her and her friends.  Superheroes are people too, and they have drama just like us.  That’s what this book is about.  If you are interested in superheroes and the drama that goes with the job, you will definitely enjoy this book.

Interested in reading??
