Glitterbomb is the story of a woman who is stuck in the Hollywood audition cycle and is finding the redundant interview process extremely draining. She ventures out to the water and is greeted, or perhaps consumed is a better word, by an unexpected force. When she regains consciousness, something in her has changed. She finds herself unable to control something that now lives within her.
- Dark and edgy compared to most Hollywood based stories but in a good way. It takes an almost realistic look at the situation facing actors and how aging past a certain point reduces the likelihood of getting cast.
- The powers she develops are impressive and surprising. She is a unique character with a realistic storyline that you can feel the frustration in her expressions.
- Not sure about the villain, but it almost seems like our lead character is battling against the being that seems to be consuming her mind. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not explained as to who we should be worried about just yet (other than the mean movie executive, but he obviously gets his justice.)
- Not recommended for kids which is fine, just definitely don’t let your younger kids read it. Mature language and graphic images (obviously) so don’t let the little kids read.
- The Art is extremely well done. The look is gritty and real, without looking boring.
- The thing that comes out of her and the process of her transforming back into herself is done really well. Chronologically and slowly revealing her horror in what she has done. It really helps narrate the story and the lack of control she has over whatever it is that is happening to her.
