FUN FACT: WASHINGTON D.C.’S OCCULT ARCHITECTURE WAS CONFIGURED TO ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET FOR AN EXTRA-DIMENSIONAL DARK LORD!
But hidden in plain sight in the heart of our nation’s capitol is the one artifact that can turn back this nefarious entity. Now, it’s up to Lorna, Relic Wrangler, to pilfer a certain Memorial and curry the sacred object to its destiny — all the while unaware that she is delivering herself as a sacrificial party favor!
PLUS: Thrill to the Girl Fight on the Threshold of Doom when Lorna confronts her teenage adversary turned cat-suited villainess! It’s high school all over again when two worlds collide on the National Mall!
I was really looking forward to this particular book. Based on the cover and the title, I was expecting something along the lines of Tomb Raider.
Unfortunately, that is not what I found. The book consisted of two stories. The first story is a fun little introduction to Lorna’s backstory and that of her arch nemesis, Posh Meow, as well.
In this first story, it seems that Lorna is more of a secret agent than a relic hunter type. While the plot wasn’t too bad, I think those who would be most interested in this story would be adolescent males. There were quite a few innuendos and situations and looks from some of the characters that push the adolescent humor.
The second half is made up of two stories. The first is a fun little story about Lorna helping a young Stigmatic girl, ending in a not very funny joke of miscommunication. The last story is probably the best of the three, with a fun little supernatural twist ending.
While the book was somewhat fun, I would say it was definitely aimed more at the teen crowd. I enjoyed the art in the first story; it was fun and somewhat reminiscent of Archie comics. I will say that I enjoyed the last story enough to recommend the book for that story.
