I have to admit that I don’t typically read books about biker bounty hunters, but when I learned about the book Chaser, it drew my interest and I decided to give it a try. The thing that caught my attention was the fact that the main character is transgender, something you don’t see enough of in mystery fiction. But there’s so much more to this book and this character than the fact that she is transgender. She is a kick ass, capable woman and a wonderful main character.

The event was Drag Story Time and from designer dresses to plaid pajamas and a pint-sized Santa Claus, everyone looked marvelous.

The first book in this trilogy by April Daniels, Dreadnought, brought the world a whole new kind of superhero-a teen transgender one-and it was amazing! So I was excited to sit down and read the second book, Sovereign. Normally I don’t read books that are in present tense, but this series is so good I forget all about it!

When I was first asked if I would review Dreadnought, a debut novel by April Daniels, I was told that it was a YA book featuring a transgender superhero. My immediate response was absolutely! How could anyone turn down reviewing a book that is so unique?
