    I loved this book! I was worried that the main character was going to be a female Ironman but she is so much better. Amelia was in a car accident at the age of six putting her in a wheelchair and losing her parents. She uses her genius to make a computer and a super suit. She fights super villains and monsters but really only wants to find her parents. I am looking forward to the next book

    Wow, that was FUN. Up there with Confessions of a D List Supervillan, but with a very different MC and sense of humor. Hispanic Girl in wheelchair build a set of Armor so she can walk... and fight supervillans, ofc. I liked her as mush as I liked Nigel Henry's Ria. Book 2 was great as well. Only a few more days till book 3 is out.

    A start to a superhero seriesAmelia Lockheart is confined to a wheelchair but her mind sets her free. Her genius allows her to design an armored suit that turns her into the superhero, Arsenal. Amelia has a secret agenda where becoming a superhero is only the first step. Her real goal is to find out what happened to her parents.I love comics and stories of superheroes. The author of Arsenal does too. I really enjoyed the little things he added to show that love like having the Parker Alert for warning of superhero activity (obviously in honor of Peter Parker, Spiderman). Or when he says how lame the power of talking to fish is (poor Aquaman, always a joke). Of course, there will be comparisons between Arsenal and that other famous super suit, Iron Man. But those comparisons are fairly minor. The world in this story is very different than those in comic books. The government regulates superhumans much closer here, even to the point of having sponsored teams. The heroes are more human in their lives. Their powers don't read like a Christmas list of what you need to stop criminals with superpowers. There are real consequences to the fights including people, even heroes and villains, dying.Unlike a comic, a novel gives the author more room to explore a character, their thoughts, and even to more fully develop the story. Arsenal does all that but also manages to keep the feel and energy of the comics. This was like reading a huge graphic novel (no pictures of course) that collects a year or two of issues. Some people might feel the ending is too much of a cliffhanger, but I would disagree. Yes, there are unanswered questions. But the arc of this book was the introduction and setup for finding Amelia's parents. The following book will deal with the fallout of what she finds. There is also plenty of other areas to explore as well. Like the lives of the other superheroes and the event that caused them. I look forward to hopefully many more books in this series.

    this is the latest trend in chepoville writerodicks dumpster...get a 'shoulder length haired' female lead, make her disabled (amputee, paralyzed..). then give her the goal to fight evil superpowers (alone). physically disabled, open to any kind of danger at any time of day...oh yeah... watch that super awesome girl! how she kills, destroys evil of the world while hopping on one leg, since her prosthetic one has been stolen by evil this case it's a metal suit. she is on wheelchair, while fighting she is in walking armor, no suit..dead pussy walking (pardon me, dead pussy lying is more like it). and these writerodicks insist on using them in action hero novels..and what's more...more dickos clap this fart .. what's she gonna do when 'evilo' breaks into her house while she is sleeping and her suit is out of reach? pray to God to send lightning to roast evilado? boy..even turtles are not that shit and die please. this is only a drop in the ocean... a strong wind and boom..she is on ground flapping her arms to turn her face...meanwhile..the kind evil waits for her for know, don't kick a disabled person. it's rude. even more so for evil.right? right?? right????! so, the kind evil waits for the pathetic crawling heroine to make her move to prison, kill, maim etc..whatever floats her disabled heaven..this is pure genius, isn't it?! fucking think about the genre before you try to puke out your shit. and while my farting engine is still running hot..this is superhero genre. rule number 1 of superhero genre;the villian always steal your most prized shit. and what's the most prized shit for arsenal? her's only plot natural for it to malfunction, hijacked, hacked, happens next? chapter 2: superheroine dead. she couldn't reach to her wheelchair to leave the blastzone..this perverted sick new trend is as awesome as reading Playboy bunnies working for cern.....anyway...I am up for any cyborg theme, but just do not dump these whores on my reader.oh,'s gender bender fanfiction of iron Man. forgot to add..

    Awesome! Mostly.This book was so much fun to read. I loved the main character, the superhero universe, and the spectacular butt-kicking. Really, I do enjoy all the horribly fake science that means nothing and the seeming omnipotence of her impossible AI - it’s the cheese that every superhero story should have. I reveled in every silly word of it. My only problem was that the book just kept going ...on and on... at one point, I was sure the book was done; a good stopping point, I thought. But an arbitrary extra story got tacked on the end, even introducing new characters and such. It kind of threw me off because it felt unnatural. Still, a little more saving the day is totally forgivable. It’s a superhero novel! Just enjoy the ride, and don’t think too hard about it. :)

    Iron girlAn interesting superhero tale. I am interested to see where it goes next. The author writes a very good fight sequence and has enough world building to make an intriging setting. There are a few small problems... some characters are very similar to well known ones. I advise the author to be unique when choosing power sets. With regards plot, its laudable the hero is wheelchair bound and that the prejudices in that are addressed, but if I could invent a battlesuit that allowed me to walk, then I'd definitely have also done a non-armoured leg-brace for off-duty work.

    I enjoyed this take on an armored superhero who doesn’t let her disability prevent her from taking on all manner of weird and wonderful super villains. The characters had some nice depth, and the plot moved along at a fair clip. I particularly enjoyed the action set pieces, wondering how the crew would get out of yet another sticky situation. At times it all seemed too easy, but I expect things will become even tougher for Amelia in future installments. My one real criticism is the distracting number of typos! This book could have benefited greatly from one more proofreading pass. Other than that, it was nicely done and well worth the read. I’ve already gotten stuck into the next one!

    3.5 stars only because the story plot started to feel forced and stilted towards the end. The beginning was definitely engaging and portended good things, but somewhere along the way the language, the characters, the villains, and even the impending climax all began to feel stiff, as if the writer was stretching to try and wrap the story up.I definitely want to see where the story goes from here, but I'm not dying to get my hands on Book 2 (although I'm curious if nothing else). Would love to see the writer get more comfortable with the characters and world he's built.

    Excellent premise, well written, can't wait for book two! Could use a little bit of editing (capital letters in the wrong places, incorrect apostrophe placement), but nothing that distracted overall from focusing on the plot, characters, or action.

    Three cheers for Arsenal!This is the best superhero genre book I have read in quite some time. It is believable and a great read. The author grabs you from the very beginning and takes you for a hell of a ride. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

    CatchyInteresting character. Dimensions being developed. World scape is being defined gradually. The plot is interesting but very much fighting against the machine. Not quite credible.

    If it weren't for the typos I'd have given it 5/5. Excellent characterization & plot. A very interesting idea as well. I look forward to more.
