Marvel and Aconyte Books Show Off The First “Heroines” Prose Novels
Awesome new fiction coming this October starring Domino
Here’s a first look at the brand-new prose novels that kick off Aconyte’s series set in the incredible worlds of Marvel Comics.
Domino: Strays, by Tristan Palmgren
The Heroines line commences in fine style with DOMINO in her first prose novel, STRAYS. The job was to infiltrate a Chicago conman’s cult to liberate some brainwashed twins, but for former X-Force operative Domino, that’s a “hell no.” Fanatics are bad news. She still has nightmares about Project Armageddon, the super-soldier program that wrecked her life and destroyed her family. If only she’d had someone to help her back then, someone… like her. Maybe it is time to finally face those demons. With her probability manipulating super-powers, she can turn even the worst of situations to her advantage.
Author Tristan Palmgren, the writer of the acclaimed SF novel Quietus, loved getting to grips with his subject: “I especially loved finding Domino’s voice, her acid sense of humor, but most especially the way she’s unafraid to act in ways other heroes don’t see as heroic. Domino understands the difference between a principled decision and the right decision, and she’ll go for right over principled every day. Even when it costs her.”
