Dazzler: Sound of Light by Amanda Bridgman
When rock star Dazzler walked out on S.H.I.E.L.D., she hoped she’d seen the last of the clandestine organization. But when a rogue agent drops in after a sold-out gig, she must decide whether to work with them again or stick to her solo career. The agent links Mutant Growth Hormone – a dangerous biochemical that wildly enhances mutant powers – with the disappearance of Magneto and Cyclops. Reluctantly, Dazzler takes the case and unfolds a mystery greater than she anticipated. In need of a new team, she recruits the extraordinary mutants Emma Frost, Polaris, and Rachel Grey on a mission to foil a plot to remove mutantkind forever, which blasts them from Earth into a whole new dimension.
Dazzler: Sound of Light is a fun, action-packed adventure that even readers who aren’t as familiar with the characters will enjoy. It’s a great mix of mutants by an author who does a great job with these individuals and their personalities. The unfolding mystery and action scenes made for an exciting, fast-paced story that fans should enjoy. I’m a Dazzler fan and love that it’s told from her perspective. I’m really enjoying these Aconyte Marvel novels – the ones I’ve read have all been standalone, character-driven stories by talented writers. And this is one I won’t soon forget.
