Superpowered fun with creepy-crawlies

By Senna Black, member

Jul 10, 2011: Taylor, the main character of this webfic has a superpower that allows her to compel bugs to her will. I am saying this up front so I can explain that for someone who loathes all creepy-crawlies as much as I do, reading some parts of this webfic have been challenging.

That said, there is a lot to like. I agree with Von that this story rises above both the YA and Superhero genres. It is really compelling. The writing is absolutely professional standard, and despite my issues with bugs, once I started I couldn’t stop reading.

The entire story is very sophisticated, and I am continually struck by how much thought both the author and the POV character put into small details, which make the world and its inhabitants absolutely convincing.

A very, very good webfic. I can’t wait to see where it goes.
