Shattered by Lee Winter

Shattergirl, Earth’s first lesbian guardian—a brilliant but aloof alien superheroine who can hurl and destroy large objects—is refusing to save people and has gone off the grid. Lena Martin, the street-smart tracker with a silver tongue and a disdain for the rogue guardians she chases, has only days to bring her home. As the pair clash heatedly, masks begin to crack and brutal secrets are exposed that could shatter them both.

This is my first book by this author and I can tell you I would definitely pick up another one. The story was very well written, with two characters that seem so different at first, until you really start to see who they are inside.

I will admit that there were times in this book that made me hate humanity, because while the story is fictitious, it is also very true. And I can totally see this type of thing happening if another lifeform were to come to our planet. However, I loved that the characters were able to help each other deal with some dark memories and hard things that had kept them from really living life.

I can't say that I'm 100% happy with the ending, but it was still a happy one and fitting for the characters and story.

I do want to also make a small note about the cover because it does make it seem somewhat silly and comic book-ish, but the story really is so good.
