Review: The Matriarch by Sloane Howell

The Matriarch: An Erotic Superhero Romance The Matriarch: An Erotic Superhero Romance by Sloane Howell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Freaking fantastic!! I'm not sure I can even find the right words to do this book justice.

Sometimes you start a book with a bit of trepidation. Uncertain of what you'll find. I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a little leery going into this book. But I was sold after reading the first line.

"Jesus Christ this guy can f*ck. Shame he has to die."

At the age of 12, Maggie descends into hell. Her family is murdered, she's taken and held captive, and is forced into a life of prostitution. She had finally accepted her lot in life... until she didn't. Enough was enough and she escapes. She trains to become the city's new hope.


If you're a fan of Batman, you will LOVE this story. Everything is very Gotham-esque without being redundant. It's fresh, unique, raw, gritty, and BLOODY!

There is heartbreak:
"I love you so much... both of you... and..." I started to choke on my words but managed to stutter through them. "I'm going to m-miss you both so much. So very much. I'm going to make you so proud of me."

There is love:
"What do you want to do today?" The motor rumbled as I grinned in his direction. "Run away with you." He smiled. He always said the perfect things.

"Look at me." His eyes slowly rose as I unconsciously batted my eyelashes at him. "I'm still a girl." I couldn't believe those words left my lips, but they were true. "And when you hold me... it's the safest place in the world."

There is fight:
"Each time I put on the suit I became a different person. A person for criminals to fear."

There's also lies, deceit, murder, mayhem, betrayal and vengeance. The story is intense, scintillating, sexy, gory and incredibly brilliant. I NEED book 2 NOW!!
