Karis by R.M. Strong

Book 1 in the My Life as a Superhero series

After witnessing the brutal murder of her family, 15-year-old Kingston native Tamara Weatherby is adopted by her father's long-time friend, multibillionaire Paul Waterford–who just happens to moonlight as Krino, Kingston's vigilante hero. Tamara quickly earns a role at Krino’s side, but she soon learns that her new occupational hazards are the least of her challenges; she must deal with now-envious friends, constant media attention, and the persistence of the man who took her family away. Over the years, Tamara meets and befriends all kinds of colorful superheroes and battles those who use their intellect or abilities–or their social standing–to harm others.

Through her weaknesses and struggles, Tamara finds strength, courage, and confidence that she never knew she had. But can she find the will to forgive her family's killer?

I grabbed this on the off chance that it might be a fun read. I got much more than I bargained for. Yes the hero's are not “super” just well financed but the interaction between the MC and those around her was superb! The story at times made me cry, laugh and shout for joy. Five big stars for Karis and her team of Hero's. Can't wait for more. ~George McVey
