The Wait Is Almost OVER!
Just in time for Christmas reading our favourite wanna-be superhero RETURNS!
After sort of single handedly thwarting her father’s nefarious plans to take over the world Bremy St. James and her motley gang are back for more crime fighting hi-jinks.
Fresh off thwarting the crime of the century, Bremy St. James is back and more determined than ever to fight by the side of the city’s top superhero, Dark Ryder. There’s just one problem: Dark Ryder’s disappeared.
To make matters worse, Bremy’s evil billionaire father, Atticus, is taking her lack of family loyalty very personally, and Bremy’s last tie to her old life, her reason behind her choices—her sister—is distancing herself as well.
The second installment of the Sidekick series raises the stakes even higher. After Atticus’ escape from the prison in the first book, things are quiet, too quiet. Bremy feels she is ready to take her place at Dark Ryder’s side only she is nowhere to be found and it isn’t long before ready or not Bremy is right back in the thick of things with her motley crew at her side.
It’s no secret that I love everything Auralee Wallace writes and unlike most writers she seems to get better and better with every word. If you haven’t read the first installment, one-click it immediately and hold on cause the circus is in town! For the rest of you it is only three short weeks until you can reacquaint yourselves with Bart, Queenie, Pierce and meet the Little Big Shot (think pint size Robin Thicke, shudder), the Angel of St. James, the Crime Mime and funeral director Kevin straight out of the Addams Family. It’s an unholy combination that works like something you could never imagine with equal parts hilarity and humanity that only Bremy can handle with her trademark naive obstinate perseverance that she can change the world with a bit of help from her friends.
Sidekick was much like a fun-house circus ride but in Sidekick Returns we discover a much darker side to super heroism that will ultimately pit Bremy against a foe she never imagined… her own twin sister.
If you appreciate unique, adrenaline filled, subtly witty and occasionally farcical stories then the Sidekick series is for you. Think Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a soupcon of Star Wars thrown in for good measure. Take my advice, read them. You won’t regret it.
