Lily Marin by Paul Kater








Lily and the motley crew from Lily Marin by Paul Kater



Book Description:  Three short stories about Lily Marin, a singer in the steampunk era, who has a mysterious other life.


My Review: Lily and the motley crew is about one of Lily Marin’s outings as a superhero.   She’s part Batman and part genuine superhero.  She wields a rad gun, a whip, a very modern kind of coat that stops bullets and an umbrella that has a special surprise inside.

Lily outsmarts criminals with her wits and gadgets.  She thinks like a superhero and hides her identity by wearing a mask.  She is careful to hide who she is but believes that when she’s the masked woman she is being her true self.

Lily and the motley crew is the first short story in the book.  It’s quick and action packed.  Lily takes on a gang.  There are two more stories in this book and it looks like one of them may explain how she received her super strength.  I can’t wait to read them all.  Lily and the Motley Crew was entertaining and imaginative.  It was exactly how I like my steampunk.  There is also a full novel about Lily Marin.  It should be fun.
