Lois Lane: Cloudy with a Chance of Destruction by Gwenda Bond
Published 2015, Capstone
(Prequel short story for Lois Lane: Fallout, just released)
Thanks for Netgalley for providing a review copy of this exclusive short story prequel in exchange for an honest review.
This mini-novella gives a little background information and sets up the storyline for Lois Lane: Fallout by giving us a sneak peak at Gwenda Bond's take on the famous female love interest for Clark Kent/Superman, this time imagining her as a teenage Army brat with a penchant for Nancy Drewing, snark, and putting her foot in her mouth.
"Who even asked you?"
"No one... Unfortunately for you, I've always been on the nosy side."
Essentially, she's the perfect YA version of the young woman who's going to end up at the Daily Planet as a tour de force of reporting glory, and I can't wait to see how her move to Metropolis and getting a full length book will work out. Guess I'll have to pick up a copy of Fallout and find out, eh?
(I also loved the hints at other DC characters, like Lois' General father, her sister Lucy, and a certain bumbling geek with secrets.)
Welcome to my train of thought. Just a warning, there might be turbulence. I'm a little eccentric, but hopefully you'll find something here that'll make the crazy worth it. Stay tuned for book reviews, ramblings on random things, and all sorts of stuff that tickles my fancy. But keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times. My brain is a scary place!
