For every simple gang banger or convenience store robber, there was a being capable of throwing cars like bags of trash or leap across the rooftops as if playing hopscotch.The business of creating tools to deal with these “Exceptionals” is a lucrative one. One of the largest, most powerful defense contractors in the world, Corp Hudson, specializes in the development of weaponry for law enforcement and the military for the sole purpose of taking down the most powerful targets. But before Corp Hudson can move forward with their ambitions of creating the perfect superhuman army, they need to study one unique subject…a subject that, unlike all other Exceptionals, was mysteriously born with her abilities.She uses her abilities for one purpose: to make as much money as she can. The streets know her as the criminal underworld’s top go-to girl, Nia Black. But Corp Hudson has another name for her: Target Omega.BELOVED WEAPON is the story of a young woman with superhuman abilities who uses them for selfish crime, until her charm and strength arent enough to keep her friends out of the crossfire. When she finds her very livelihood being threatened because of the mistakes shes made, Nia realizes its time to turn her life around...but not before putting an end to the corrupt defense contractor that would see her powers harnessed for their own nefarious ends.----Update: The error with missing text in the novel has been corrected.Juli Williamson for Readers Favorite writes:...starts out with a bang and continues to involve the reader with Nias quest to find out who she is and why she has super powers... With an adventure full of fighting, fast motorcycles, guns and sex, Nia lives the life of an urban female super hero. A futuristic, scientific twist, the creation of a perfect solider with computers, and weapons integrated into the human body create a great backdrop to Nia’s search for the past that haunts her while looking for acceptance and love in her future.The quick pace flows well and the search for love and knowledge creates a well-built plot. The characters are well-developed and full of human frailties that make them relatable to everyone. Nia’s Robin Hood style of making a living placed in an urban setting is a super twist to the classic tale. Nia is a kick ass heroine fighting the bad guys to save the world while finding her own place in it. A woman super hero that isn’t a back up to a male super hero...she is a woman who is fighting to survive and making a difference in her world. I am definitely looking forward to more of Nia’s adventures in another book.
