With a heart as pure as platinum and electricity at her fingertips!
Soaring like a falcon at the speed of light!
She’s . . . ELECTROMANCER!
When arch villain Momo threatens to destroy the world with The Big Zapper – a weapon of mass destruction the likes of which has never been seen before – it’s up to Alexa Manchester and her new electricity-harnessing superpowers to stop him.
With a little help from her sexy chauffeur, Sigfred Sawyer, and some exciting encounters with the mysterious and handsome Blue Arrow, soon Alexa’s love life is charged up, too. And to defeat the seemingly invincible Momo, it might just take the naturally super power of love to save the day.
Offering all the Kabam! Pow! Zap! of beloved comic book sagas with the beating heart of a love story, this over-the-top, genre-blending send-up is sure to delight superhero fans and romance readers alike.
Electromancer is Daco’s first superhero novel, featuring Electromancer and Blue Arrow. The novel won the gold medal in the 2016 Global Ebook Awards for Best Fantasy/Contemporary Fiction. Praise for the book includes numerous professional reviews. Library Journal wrote, “Readers of both comic book sagas and romance novels will find the sparks that fly between Alexa and Sigfred very electrifying indeed…” RT Book Reviews wrote, “The heroine is a memorable one, a tough and feminine woman who has a delicious chemistry with her main love interest … a very entertaining read.” Award-winning, best selling author, Cathy Clamp, writing for the International Thriller Writers said, “[T]he characters are strongly written, and the conflicts feel real. The narrative is just as intelligent and thrilling as Daco’s more serious work. Remember what it felt like to sit in the corner of the comic section and immerse yourself in an exciting tale of derring-do? Pick up a copy of ELECTROMANCER and feel that way again…” Readers’ Choice wrote, “Daco’s romantic superhero fantasy, Electromancer, is clever, action-packed and an all-around hoot to read. The author’s superheroes are authentic and creative…” And InD’tale Magazine wrote, “Deliciously campy, “Electromancer” combines the excitement of a superhero story with the romance of a love story.”
