5 Stars By V. Parv (Australia)
The more I read of Tori Scott's work, the easier it is to understand her meteoric rise up the ebook bestseller lists. Too many indie publishers overlook the most important element - a well written and compelling story. Even a few typos can be forgiven when the story grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go till the end, as Superstition does. It's an engrossing read with so many red, white and blue herrings that you don't know who's on whose side. It doesn't help that Team Indigo members have powers to rival the X-Men. I was particularly pleased that their civilian counterparts have skills of their own and are not afraid to use them. No, "Captain, I'm frightened" ladies here. Instead it's all, "Wham, bam, call me ma'am." I confess to being an online friend of Ms. Scott's, although nothing in that precludes me from being a fan as well. One of a rapidly growing band.
