ARC Review Marvel Heroines Silver Sable Payback by Cath Lauria

I was given a copy to review via Netgalley and Aconyte Books. My reviews are always honest and all opinions are my own. #SilverSable #MarvelEnt #Marvel #Netgalley #AconyteBooks #BookReview #CathLauria

I have to be honest that Silver Sable is not a heroine I know a lot about in her own right. But that said the Marvel Heroine lines by Aconyte are wonderful at introducing some characters who may have not had as much time to shine in the spotlight and that, for me, is exactly what Silver Sable Payback did.

In Payback we see Super Hero Mercenary take on Doctor Doom in a high risk heist. Holding Silver Sable’s homeland, Symkaria, in his grip Doom is selling its treasures to pay off the countries debt but the patriotic Silver Sable desires freedom from the tyrant. Doom is not know for favours but does offer a deal. Track down the Clairvoyant a device for seeing the future and he can erase her homelands debt. Pitted against someone who can predict her every move Silver Sable realises she needs help from someone who is unpredictable and wild – someone like Black Cat. Together they need to track down the creator of the Clairvoyant, pull off the ultimate Vegas heist, survive backstabbing exes and outsmart one of the most powerful people on the planet.

As I already said I wasn’t sure what to expect but the fact that we have Doctor Doom and Black Cat in there I was sure it was going to be good and Lauria does not disappoint. It is clear that she knows the characters and enjoys bringing them to life on the page. In fact as soon as I finished this I actually went off to find out more about Silver Sable and have found a new heroine to follow. We have all the elements that make a good Marvel story, witty banter, guest appearances, impossible odds, and also extras that just make it all the more special; a Vegas style heist, mayhem and action. Add to this characters with strong morals although sometimes a little grey and you have more than enough to keep you entertained.

With lots of re-read potential this is one installment in the heroines line I didn’t know I needed until I finished it.
