Girl Fights Back: A Review

This is a free ebook by Jacques Antoine, and is the first in a series of stories about the kick-ass teenager called Emily Kane.

This book starts off a teensy bit on the slow side and has a slightly more omniscient narration style than I’m used to which took me a couple of chapters to get used to, but once I was used to it found myself really enjoying.

Emily was brilliant. I’m not sure there’s any other way to describe her. I adored her completely. She has a tough time of things but she just handles it all brilliantly and is so relaxed.

The story was pretty good too. For a martial arts book it never felt like that was the entire focus which kept it from getting dry, although it does play a major part of the storyline it is just one element in a very well written action plot.

It reminded me a little of the older karate kid films, but more modern and with a female lead. Really glad I picked this book up.
