Raven posted the following review of Liberty Girl on Amazon:
Liberty Girl by Barry Reese Based on the work of Dennis Mallonee
The Liberty Girl is in reality Elena Hunter, daughter of a certain bronze skinned adventurer of the 30’s and 40’s. Once part of a group of super-powered adventures known as The Vanguard of Freedom; The Liberty Girl has been missing in action for fifty years. Until today—
Senator Ted Brooks, once a famous lawyer and member of Elena’s father’s Fabulous Five, has been looking for signs of the return of Elena or her father for decades. When a storm of unknown power rips through a US Army monitoring base in Yucca Flats, Lt. Colonel Jacqueline Daniels knows the implications. Either Elena or her father has returned. It turns out to be Elena. The date is July 4, 2006.
Liberty Girl’s return is soon tested by a being known as Daemon Kruze. But the barriers Elena’s father placed around an entrance to hell still hold. But another super-powered villain appears, as Zachary Telsa uses his grandfather’s Zapper costume to endeavor to get revenge for the old man’s death at the hands of Liberty girl decades before.
And so it goes. Life in a post 9/11 world is far different than the world Elena is used to. The press is more demanding. Every move that she makes, no matter how heroic, is viewed under the microscope of public opinion. Other powerful enemies arise. Through it all, Liberty Girl must stay true to herself. She is a champion of liberty. Friends die. Bad guys cause havoc. But she must stay the course of truth, justice, and the American way.
Barry Reese (The Rook, Lazarus Gray, Gravedigger) does a wonderful job of presenting this tale of the Liberty Girl. With his usual flare for pulp action, he makes every page interesting; every paragraph a building block for the story he is creating.
I give his book a perfect five stars out of five for pure pulp action and madness! I can hardly wait for other books Barry Reese has announced to be released! Encore!
Quoth the Raven…
Thanks, Raven! It was fun working on this project and I look forward to whatever future books Pro Se releases with the character!
