    It is possible that the plot in this book makes the grade but I will never know because the writing and character development just left too much to be desired and I opted not to finish the bookFirst off the prose was too stilted for my taste with awkward self aware adjectives some strange transitions of verb tense and an overabundance of unusual similes Oh the similes Examples Jadie rattled her fingers like a snake as she said to her irritated sister Come on let's go Other odors however were also out on patrol like muggers stalking an empty alley The emergency alarms screamed over and over like a wailing drunk begging for another whiskeySeriously? Wow I admire the creativity don't get me wrong but this was just too distracting to read in my opinionSecondly the characters didn't feel real to me It was partly the writing which made it hard to get into the character interactions but it also was the characters themselves I found them a little too stereotypical with exaggerated conflicts and emotional responses It made it hard for me to identify with anyoneThe writing pretty much makes or breaks a book for me but I need to bring up one other point about this book It relates to the characterization of the heroine which is immediately evidenced in the book's cover That cover Now I realize the author has limited input on the cover of a book and I'm sure there is a wide audience out there who will smile leer? when they see the cover I did not actually reduce the rating based on the cover because I would have given it 2 stars anyway But what is strange about the visual effect here is that I read an interview with the author and Mr Luna specifically states that the idea behind this book is to introduce a super heroine that won't be objectified as has been traditionally done to women in the genre for example the bustier wearing Wonder Woman What?? The heroine in this novel wears a skin tight suit that leaves nothing to the imagination It would be hard to depict this in any way that wasn't objectifying and the book contains at least one picture contained in the book that demonstrates my point This is the old double standard at work again you have to have a personal life professional life and be strong but oh yeah you also have to look good in spandex I can't figure out if this bothers me because of the in your face cover because the author is male or because it contradicts the supposed intention of the heroine's creation to begin with In any case I found it disturbingIn summary I would not recommend this book The premise is somewhat interesting on paper but the writing style characterizations and main character's oppressive fashion situation all get in the way of the follow through

    I received this book through the Read it and Reap Program my first book through this program I am a little late posting this review Usually I am a pretty fast reader but I did not anticipate how difficult this one was going to be for me to readCindy is a gymnastics instructorowner for Ninja Gymnastics with a scientist husband who works on top secret projects One day she visits him at his office He isn't there security is not up to par and she lets her curiosity get the better of her Her snooping results in a silver shiny form fitting armorweaponry suit attaching itself to her With no immediate way to get it off she goes on all sorts of adventures which will not be described here so nobody's fun is ruined Let's get the major negative out of the way first The writing is a bit off putting Stilted was used in another review and I would have to agree I found the writing style extremely distracting and it is probably the number one reason this book was difficult for me to get through There are a number of examples on other reviews so I'm trying not to harp on this too too much Also Cindy is hot I get it After a while though references to Cindy's hotness became repetitive The storyline has a lot of potential I can definitely see this being made into a movie It was practically written for Hollywood a lot of fighting killing and simplistic plots I like the idea of a strong superhero type heroine I just wish Cindy was stronger and a bit fleshed out The characters in general were a bit flat 2D where I need 3D and annoyingly self absorbed view spoiler Cindy is stabbed and at work the next day gymnast remember? which is unrealistic as it is But her husband and her sister are both too busy to make sure she's ok and find it irritating that she expects a ride home the day after she's been assaulted on her walk home Seriously? hide spoiler

    A sci fi novel with a strong female protagonist is always a pleasant change in the male dominated SF world Assuming that by the blurb everyone is aware of the basic plot I will skip it Overall it is a good read and a pretty good attempt by the author considering it is his first book There are some serious flaws in this work but it does also have immense redeeming ualities as well It is uite obviously a flaw of mismanagement of the novel rather than an intellectual flaw An artistic issue not an ideological one And it is better it is not the other way roundBasic storyline the storyline unfortunately is the biggest flaw It is not nerve challenging or stimulating It is too simplistic A simple plot too can be wonderful and can become a classic even provided it has something substantial to fill the vaccuum Amazing works with simple stories have this endearing uality of examiningchallenging or at least commenting upon the human situation in a way that has not been touched upon till now Like AsimovIt is also fine if it does not go so deep in the psychologicalsocio cultural dilemmas but it has to have a solid plot then and details have to be filled in Twists have to be introduced the reader has to be kept guessing Like China MievilleCharacters the characters are better fleshed out than most first time writers but still lack depth The conversations are often jarring and common place Jadie hardly comes across as a sibling a reader would ever like to have nor Jonas a partner worth having If the author's intent was to depict them as imperfect individuals they have to be fleshed out better with some better use of techniue Yet it must be said that they weren't as disappointing as is feared in a first bookSimiles Metaphors they hang over the work like a mist every once in a while they hamper your sight but many a times it is a sheer delight to be walking through it Some of the similes and metaphors were absolutely beautiful but a few were misplaced A very good techniue could have been to use them to depict the changing moodaura of the work Delightful similes in lighter moments followed by dark similes in sinister moments Consider William Gibson's opening line of Neuromancer The sky above the port was the color of television tuned to a dead channel it sets the tone for the whole workDetails Details like similes should enhance the work rather than bogging it down In this case it did both in different places It helped flesh out the characters in the beginning but distracted in critical scenes readers have no interest in knowing the color of Silver's nail paint while she's in a critical fightNarrative The narrative's slow speed is delightful when the novel begins but slowly it has to pick speed as the story progresses Else like excessivemisplaced details it hampers the plot and the readers' interest The work needs a much tighter editing Like a ball set rolling on an inclined plane the story has to gain speed exponentiallyLogic the most important part of an SF story is it's logic For most of the part it was very good But it broke when a Martian germ was introduced Did the plot really need that? Did it impact the plot or its twists its outcome or the intentions of Raymond in any way? If not it wasn't needed in the first place It could be easily and in fact credibly depicted as advanced nanotechnology There also needed to be some pseudo details about why it healed how it healed wounds why it could not exist without a suit A mere suit cannot justify it as SF it has to be reinforced with explanations no matter how imaginative or imaginary Also how could the lab ever be so unguarded? That is a serious lapse of logicThat said the Specifications of the suit were very well fleshed out and the attribution of the weird behavior of the suit to the bacteria was pretty good an ideaDespite having the above mentioned issues the work is NOT bad it is simply an imperfectly executed work which if given time and details to work upon can be turned very goodThe problem is it is an SF variation of Spiderman kind of stories which we are used to We as readers need something intriguing The Ninjawoman version is a step ahead but it needs to leap much ahead to consolidate a fan following

    In the story the characters speak so lightheartedly happy and there were jokes that actually made me laugh once in a while The author was also very descriptive in some scenes but what I really enjoyed is that the author understood when to be descriptive When the reader would be interested or be of value to the reader for some scene to be descriptive However in the beginning it felt a though the book was going on forever but I am glad that I kept on reading because once I got about a third way through the book it started to pick Although the book went a little slow in the beginning mostly introducing the characters and developing the plot a little so the readers could better understand there were some scenes in which were unexpected and were very interesting to read For example when Cindy was ambushed and when the pipe broke at the gym Things happened so abruptly and fast making you feel a sense of adrenaline while reading the book I also really like the fact that Jones was the owner of Lucent lab in many books the main character or someone the main character are friends with people who simply works there or is the head of a department but usually never the owner of something like a lab and it really caught my eye and made the book a little enjoyable for me Another point on the authors description of the characters was the fact that when I was reading the book it felt as though I was experiencing what the character were going through as if I was them this was so for Cindy than any other character The way in which Cindy and Jones interacted at first seemed like newlyweds who were loving and carefree in their relationship Those kinds of relationships were they are always saying endearments like “Honey” “Sweetie “Cutie” or “Love” and so on At time it felt as though their relationship was surreal too good to be true I understand that there are relationships like that out there but they are less common nonetheless it was sweet There were also points in the story in which I was confused as to who point of view it was from It seemed as though the author was trying to write in omniscient but was really writing in 3rd person and when he caught himself writing in 3rd person he would write a comment that seemed as though it was from and omniscient Comment that felt awkward and didn't need to be there and that’s what made me confused In addition the author was also a little repetitive in the beginning Anyway what I loved about this book was that the author really took time to describe and bring emphasis the characters describe who each character is and the special role they play in the book I especially liked the way the author developed the story in a manner that all connects so harmonically in the ending; for example in the beginning the author portrays Cindy as person who has anger issues and a temper which gives a foreshadow glimpse of what is to come later on in the story One thing I really didn’t like was Cindy’s attitude it was a downer she took offense to everything almost everything viewed life as glass half empty and it killed the mood at times it really sucked Otherwise else I thought the book was fantastic There where component I love about the book and how the author wrote the book even though there were some editorial mistakes it didn’t take away from the book and that is what counts If you are looking for a book with adventure and I can’t believe I never mentioned this before but a heroine who is a real kick who fight her own battles and can stand on her own two feet in a fight and survive then this is the book for you Normally I really don’t like Sci – fic they just seem so unreal and a little boring and as soon as I realize a book is Sci – fic I steer clear away from them hypocritically I loved to read paranormal Although I gave this book a try the thing is is that it has Sci – fic that is basically the whole book but the plot is interesting enough that I made an exception so if you don’t like Sci fic give this book a try anyway you might find you actually enjoy it like me

    This was 2 3 stars for meThe good stuff it was imaginative and a wild adventure following the Silver Ninja in her rise to be a superhero Luna has given us a big and bold story that isn't afraid to delve into city wide disasters The story starts small with just a simple woman and evolves into something fantasticThe bad stuffI never got on with Cindy A professional gymnast who just so happens to be an ex cop and seriously good at martial arts Personally I thought her being an ex cop was an unnecessary addition to her history but it wasn't negative in any wayBut I always thought that martial arts was supposed to improve the mind as well as body And don't cops go through character profiling? Yet Cindy swings from whiny little twit to homicidal killing machine in a heartbeat the urge to kill is explained later on but her attitude was far too woe is me while killing I would have easily believed black outs or complete character changes; and uses bulimia as punishment She screamed weak and annoying to meI think she is the main reason I read the rest of the book that can be thrilling and exciting with impatience and eye rolling at her next dumb moveSeriously I think my favourite example was Michael tells Cindy not to get electrocuted because that's the worst thing that could happen to the suit Cut to the next scene where Cindy is trying to find a way to gain access to her next target and what does she choose as her best option punching a generatorAnd because I was so annoyed with the main character other little things that I would have let slide started to niggle For example as some of the other reviewers have said the author is excessive in their descriptions I love metaphors and symbolism as much as the next person but Her entire form was now enveloped like a chocolate banana dipped in metalI'm not sure when the last time was that I dipped my chocolate coated banana in metal I understand what Luna is trying to say but it could be put smoothlyAnd there were a couple of inconsistencies that made me stop and go back to check where I'd gone wrong Like when Cindy had daydreamedslept walked the whole day away yet when her sister asks if she's talked to her husband that day Cindy tells her that Jonas hasn't been picking up all day Strange thing to recall on a day that was completely blank

    35 stars Why? because I think Wilmar should write books for kids You know with rainbows and all of that because that's how it felt while reading the Silver Ninja while it was supposed to be a kind of serious book objective at some points especially that Cindy was not the one talking in the book but that the narrator was telling the story from afar His writing style is waaay too cheerful Well it was something that helped me make up to the reading of The torturer's daughter so I probably gave a bit rating than I would have done on normal circumstances OkayI am going to say it I am going to say what is probably on your mind right now I didn't like the title Too cheesy The story line IS AMAZING It somehow reminds me of the iron man AND I LOVE THE IRON MAN Especially the hot shot Robert I don't know his last name sue meSo this story talks about CINDY The COURAGEOUS sarcasm because I hate that kind of cheerful describtion it sounds like a kids book woman who uses the suit to fight EVIL I loved the plot But one thing Wilmar You describe toooo much it is boring Or maybe I just nag too much O'well But I guess John Green can learn a bit from you SighOkay anyway I liked the book I want to read book two but not now I know it is not published yet but I am just sayin' I am saying that because I think I had enough of Silver for now you know? It is this kind of books that you want to read book two after a year or something They are not bad books but they just don't get you hooked up enough to read book two immediately Anyway I must admit Some parts did NOT get me hooked up at all It was soo boring Oh and I ADMIT my guilt when I say I skipped some parts but not too much just a teeny tiny bit at the end of the book if you know what I mean Oh and another thing I expected some of the parts Wilmar did NOT surprise me most of the times He should work on that I admit the end which was soooo AWESOME like Transformers kind of AWESOME but I skipped some parts Really it was soooooo detailed Like boring detailed and I was just not that interested I don't know I think I am babbling Anyway nice book Keep it up Wilmar You have a bright future Oh and you look so young in your picture are you single? Oh joking call me P

    A wife stumbles on her scientist husband's secret project and unwittingly becomes a superhero of sorts When the suit becomes part of her skin she finds herself doing unimaginable things that are both good and bad The suit gives her power but corrupts her personality in unexpected ways She becomes a paid assassin for hire and then she must choose what she really wants to be and what is really worth fighting forI don't know if the author's intent was to write in an overblown comic book style but the flowery language and overuse of simile made it tough for me to finish Yet finish it I did I'm just glad there wasn't a overabundance of alliteration like Stan Lee used in classic Marvel comicsBy the end I found the main character to be tough to like She seemed to go from self obsessed to an emotional wreck Some of that was caused by the suit but some of it wasn't It feels like most of the conversations in the book should have been full of exclamation points and it seems like characters that supposedly have good relationships are constantly on the verge of hair trigger arguing and tantrums For an independent book it's got a really great cover Your mileage may vary

    I'm not so sure I was a huge fan of the female heroine but it's a fun read Lots of action and funny dialog banter I actually would love to see this as a graphic novel as it definitely has that superherocomic feel to it Overall good storyline

    NOTICE I was given a reviewer copy of this book at my reuest and for no cost In order to receive this book as I was given it I have pledged to post an “honest review” END NOTICEI’m a bit befuddled about how to proceed here since I just had too many problems with this book to give an overall positive review And that in large part my “thunder” such as it is has already been stolen in the review posted by Michael here Very solid take on the book and I think a fair one if perhaps a bit stronger than I ultimately felt about itWell now for me and my 02 of input What did I like about this book? Some of the action scenes were tolerable possibly even mildly enjoyable And when I come across that in a book I feel myself able and with a clear conscience to give out a two star rating at the absolute minimum Unfortunately I just couldn’t go beyond that with this oneWhy? Well first let’s take a look at some selected bits of text Note that I’m using page references to the reviewer copy a PDF which ran to only 159 pages I’d guess if you double the page number referenced you’d come close in the paperback but I’ll also throw in the chapter number for those who really wish to follow along at home So late the young woman cried as her loyal worn cream colored sneakers tried to distort reality so she could run faster than time itself Chapter 1 p 6 Remember when you thought Sydney was the capital of Australia? I know that in reality—Jadie pointed at Cindy with a sarcastic attitude—you're a moron Chapter 1 p 7 A rusty water pipe roared out from the blackened cave above and dropped down over Cindy's head like a log going to a sawmill Chapter 3 p 35 They loaded up their empty chambers with bullets uivering to rip into Cindy's flesh Chapter 4 p57 Cindy found herself staring down dozens of rifle barrels each holding uivering bullets in their blackened chambers Chapter 8 p 129Sigh What to do here? What can I say? Of particular note is that first entry It is actually the first line of the of first chapter in the novel leading me initially to wonder if I’d not somehow stumbled into an entry in some sort of strange Bulwer Lytton Contest It certainly did nothing to pull me into the book to make me wish to read and so forth uite the contrary Never having written a novel I’d always supposed an author would take particular care with that first sentence Apparently not And beyond that? I’ll keep my pointy sarcastic attitude at my side for fear of putting somebody’s eye out avoid any chambers blackened or not and pass on in silence though perhaps looking a tad askance at those uivering bullets And please note that what I’ve posted here involved no particular search You can find sentences similar to the preceding at any point you’d care open the bookAs to the logic or lack thereof at certain places in the book let me post one example Though I remain unclear as to the importance of this episode to the overall plot I’ll mark my discussion of it with spoiler tagsview spoilerEarly in the novel Cindy is stabbed by an attacker To use the author’s curious phrasing She whimpered softly as she felt pain in its liuid form spilling onto the ground The concrete became stained with a deep copper red; her blood spilling over the curb and dripping into the water drain below Chapter 1 p 16She then passes out has her purse stolen and is discovered by her sister after oh I dunno an hour or two spent laying in that condition Sound serious? I sure thought so But apparently not She’s up and at ‘em and going to work the very next morning pain in its liuid form or not being no bar to our Cindy Sorry but I had to roll my eyes hide spoiler
