Spunky supergirl, snarky flying horse and hunky hero tackle alien killers
Fun series with superheroes at college set in a fictional version of Atlanta and other familiar locations. Read about the Secret Supers HERE.
Teen superhero, Starrella, and her flying horse combat vicious killers in the skies of Atalanta.
The quiet summer before her freshman year turns frighteningly weird after Estelle Wright trespasses onto an Army base. Blown into the air and knocked unconscious, she wakes with a nascent superpower. Not to mention a winged horse with a snarky attitude and a mind of her own.
Back home in Atalanta, a serial killer is targeting the students at Goldman University. Before long she must juggle college classes with sneaking out of the house after dark to battle alien monsters. Estelle’s life is in danger, but who can she trust: handsome Mark Copper from military intelligence, or hunky Toby, the tough gangster with a motorbike? Both men have secret agendas, but falling in love is not in their plans.
Young adult superheroes, quirky animal sidekicks, and a dash of romance enliven this thrilling adventure. Book 1 of the Secret Supers.
Flying with Rockette a few nights later, Starrella spotted the shadow of a giant mantis swaying back and forth against a moonlit brick wall. In the dark alley below, the crisp footsteps of a lone woman echoed faintly. The intended victim peered from side to side, nervous, yet unaware of the terror lurking above her head.
“Rockette,” Starrella warned.
“Seen it.” Spreading her wings, the mare glided down toward the mantis. Her silent descent brought them within ten feet before the mantis noticed.
It lunged for the flying mare.
Focusing her energies, Starrella shot a beam of fire at the head of the huge insect. The flame seared across its huge eyes. It screeched, clawed at its head and dropped into the darkness of the alley. Meanwhile, the pedestrian had trotted around the corner into the safety of the well-lit main street.
Rockette straightened her legs and landed in an empty lot between the buildings. Slipping off the mare’s back, Estelle circled the space, alert for another attack from the injured mantis. Behind her, Rockette snorted and stamped her hooves, impatient at the delay.
A rush of air and the mare squealed, her hooves shuffling on the asphalt. Swiveling toward the sound, Starrella bit her lip. Mantis mandibles clamped onto a feathery wing, pinning the mare on the ground. In a blur of white feathers, Rockette struggled to free her wing, twisting and kicking with no visible effect.
Starrella pointed her fingers and hesitated, unsure of her target. White mare and green mantis writhed together, and she was afraid of hitting the wrong one.
A black shape bounded out of the darkness, resolving into the lithe body of a large cat. Leaping onto the struggling combatants, the cat’s teeth snapped into the neck of the mantis. The mare jerked away and stood shuddering as the mantis legs scrabbled on the tarmac.
Starrella raced to her mare. The big cat turned to face her, bared its curved fangs and snarled. Halting cautiously, Starrella tossed her hair back over her shoulders and stared at the powerful black cat. Nearly as tall as the mare, its sleek black fur had the pale yellow splotches of a South American jaguar.
A faint sound called her attention to the dark side of the building.
A man stepped out of the darkness, all in black except for his eyes. In the dull black material of his close-fitting suit, he was almost invisible, like a moving shadow. Even so, she recognized his distinctive broad shoulders and muscular arms.
“Toby!” Starrella cried. “What the heck is going on?” She stepped closer, holding out her hand to show the small flame rising from her palm.
His eyes glinted in the moonlight. “Super Starrella’s firepower! Great, we’ll need you for the mantis attack.” He drawled, “They’re out in force tonight.”
