Broken was once Silverwyng, and Silverwyng could fly. Because of that special ability (and some kickass quick healing skills), she was raised by the Extrahuman Union. But when she lost the ability to fly, she escaped the Union, and has been living on the streets, a drunk shadow of her former self.
Michael sees the future, so has always known that one day, a woman would give him her baby, and his actions would determine if that child would end up the savior of humanity, or a monster. He also knows that he needs Broken’s help to do this, and has seen the one thing that will make her help him – that if they succeed – she will fly again.
This is an interesting twist on a typical superhero story, with an additional post apocalyptical layer – definitely a different twist on that genre. It’s a quick read, partially because you really want to know what happens next.
There is a sequel, which I will be grabbing.
