review 1: Pulp is powerful. By referencing a classic example of man-rescues-damsel-in-distress storytelling and instead inserting a badass, bisexual, no-nonsense biker chick as the hero, Long highlights how ludicrous and taken for granted is the patriarchal fairy-tale. This is all packaged into an exciting and action-filled narrative, retaining its niche as pure, satisfying pulp. In this way, it not only satirizes and critiques themes of literature, storytelling, and society, but offers a fitting and appropriate alternative for those that are looking for a good, pulpy action-fantasy.I gave it 3 stars simply as a matter of personal tastes - if rating the book based on accomplishing it's mission, I would give it 4 or 4.5/5.

... moreprised by a free ebook I pick on on B&N website. I have had this in my 'library' for quite some time and finally decided to check it out. I honestly could not put this book down until it was over. Funny in places, a little romance, weird creatures and all. This book grabbed my attention from the first page. Love all the metaphors used, some made me laugh out loud. less

Fun read! Would have given 3.5 stars if could do half stars. Will read the next book in series.
I've never read Princess of Mars, but this was entertaining enough.
Review coming soon.
