Superheroes like Thor come with all they need to be a super hero, a cape, a hammer and great fighting ability. Other people who might have been born into an amazing family, still have to learn and train. It's like the difference between Batman and Superman. Batman without the tools is pretty plain (or as plain as a wealthy man can be) while Superman still has all his powers even when wearing nerdy glasses.
Wende Dikec's latest story tells the tale of a family descended from Ancient Amazons but who are pretty ordinary, until they learn to train and fight. No one gets a free ride in this family. Everyone works hard in one division or another. If you could learn to be a superhero, would you?
Descended from a secret race of Amazon Warriors, Ana Thermadosa is not like other girls. As a student at Artemis Academy, the training grounds for a mysterious company called Cerberus Enterprises, Ana has spent her life learning what is important.
How to fight, how to win, how to kill, and, mostly importantly, how to follow orders and live up to the expectations of her powerful family.
Trained in the art of warfare since birth, now her skills are being put to the test. She’s been hired to defend Jordan Banks, the wealthy son of a nefarious businessman, from kidnappers.
She despises Jordan and all he stands for, but soon comes to realize that many things in the outside word aren’t as she’s been led to believe. She also discovers Jordan isn’t what she expected, and, against her better judgment, finds herself starting to care for him.
When disaster strikes, Ana is put in a difficult predicament. Keeping Jordan safe would mean betraying her own people and everything she believes in, but letting him die would mean betraying something even more important.
Her own heart.
