Review Titles

Just one new review title this week.

INTO HER WEB by Anna Ritter came my way through a fellow SFF reviewer who is friends with the author, and since she was already on my radar, I leapt at the chance ...

In a world filled with superheroes and nearly unstoppable villains, Nova City serves as an example of what can be created. Of course, the force behind this new venture has her own agenda. Melissa Tander has created her city as a model for female supremacy. Most of the men across the country haven’t really figured this out yet, but that’s fine. Their naïveté will make it easier to control them.

Nova City has one powerful superhero: Riptide. Logan Drake might spend his days as a marine biologist, but he is determined to use his newfound superpowers to make the world a better place. He doesn’t believe there can be any real conspiracy in Nova City. Even after he meets the Weaver, a woman capable of creating telekinetic webs and draining strength with just a kiss, he holds onto his status as the city’s premier superhero.

But as he battles different villains, he discovers what the Weaver can do. She’s a nearly unstoppable superheroine, and she has special plans for Riptide. They might be competing, but she just needs one kiss to drain his strength and reduce him to the status of her regular boy. After that, she can take him—keep him—and use him. There’ll be no stopping her!

If he gets caught in her web, he will be chained down, naked, and powerless. That’s when the training can begin.

The Weaver understand how men think. She knows what it takes to retrain him, to teach him that he was never supposed to be powerful. Like every other boy, he was always destined for slavery. Now it’s just a matter of teasing him, denying him, and using him until he succumbs.

Riptide doesn’t know it, but he’s already stumbled into her web.
