Minions Little Golden Book
About this deal
So much of the story leans on who loves who, why and how much they may or may not be in love and so on.
I liked that it started by putting you in the thick of the action; however, the action made no sense. John David Anderson, author of the acclaimed Sidekicked, has written another story set in an America where superheroes and supervillains are commonplace, but where the line between right and wrong, good and evil, is still not any less elusive.maybe its a cultural issue, as most of the characters are non-white (which hasn't been an issue for me before). John David Anderson once hit himself so hard on a dare by his sister that he literally knocked himself out of a chair and nearly blacked out. Minion is a fascinating look at the life of someone who could be described as a "supervillian sidekick.
With many awards to her credit, Banks also held a masters of fine arts degree in film and media arts from Temple University. When strange attacks erupt within the club drug-trafficking network and draw the attention of the police, Damali realizes these killings are a bit out of the ordinary, even for vampires. But then a Super comes to town, a mysterious blue streak in the sky known only as the Comet, and Michael's world is thrown into disarray.
This is an excellent super versus villains story from the perspective of Michael, a fourteen-year-old adopted boy with his own special power to persuade people to do what he says.

I read this because Banks is a staple author within the paranormal genre, and I've enjoyed the novels of authors influenced by her.
The fact that Michael has a great power, but still struggles within himself about whether he should use it or not brings something deeper to an otherwise pretty light-hearted read. Banks' novels are steeped in both vampire lore and hip-hop culture and feature a vivid cast of black heroines and heroes.

When you keep having to make sure you are indeed reading the FIRST book in a series, because nothing is making sense?Minion=demon that was conjured up, seeking revenge against a vampire, but the master vampire and demon made a pact. Banks really earns a lot of points for creativity with the revelation of the huntress legend, the "ripening" concept, and with the intricate background and talents of the hunting team and supporting characters. So this (racist, sexist) book is about a kid named Michael who gets adopted from an orphanage led by nuns and gets involved with crime. Minion, a companion, not sequel or prequel, to Sidekicked, is set in a whole new city with a whole new cast of characters. Rather, Minion examines one of the most powerful aspects of the superhero mythos: the blurred boundaries between good and bad, especially when one is trying to do the right thing.
The legend starts with the dark angel (reminds me of Lucifer) from Paradise, where good and evil meet, and speaks about twelve Guardians (twelve tribes in Israel)--the Covenant foretells the coming of Neteru, who is a super-being mortal like Buffy? I would like to read a book about an African American heroine who's a nerd, who likes new wave music, hunts monsters, and never lived in the hood. You will hurt humans or terrain only at the end of your attack after you hit a wall or travel far enough.
