About the Author
Wilmar Luna is a Guatemalan American from Hamilton, New Jersey who loves super heroes and video games. It was his love for all things geeky that made him want to entertain and excite his readers. He's not sure where the feminism came from, but it certainly has had an impact on his writing. His dream is that one day, his female superheroine The Silver Ninja, will be a role model for younger generations to come.

You can tell because I finished it (I make a point of never reading a book I don't enjoy to the end) and I finished it in a short amount of time (again one of the things I use to measure my enjoyment of a book).
Indoctrination is the second book in the Silver Ninja series, but knowledge of the first book is not necessarily required to enjoy it. I, at the time of writing this review, have not read the first Silver Ninja book and did not find this a problem at all - though I will be checking the first book out in the very near future and I believe that I would have enjoyed it even more had I read it first.
The story is set in a near-future/alternate present America, it's familiar yet original, and has an imaginative use of technology as part of it's narrative.
I found Wilmar's writing style to be accessible and clear. The book avoids the trap of info-dumping yet always manages to ensure the reader isn't missing information needed to understand the setting and the characters in it.
The story flows nicely, fast paced but not rushed. The characters feel real, the dialogue natural and the actions of the stories protagonists are believable without being predictable.
I found it fun to read, enjoying the ride it takes you on. The book makes you think whilst it entertains you, without sacrificing it's story to do so.
A key point is that I want to read more about the characters and the world around them.
My grumbles in relation to the book are, I believe, down to me not reading book 1 first, as I personally would have loved to know more about the whys and wherefores of the world the story is set in. I expect to get this information when I read the first book.
I have a habit of reading series of books out of order, I have comes across the problem before and it is mostly my problem and not the authors ;-).
I'd give the book a solid 7/10.
This is the first book review I have done in a long long time, I hope you find it useful and I hope you enjoy Silver Ninja Indoctrination when you read it.
The Silver Ninja is back for the second instalment.
Cindy had plenty to worry about - a husband that ignores her, and a sister fighting her own demons. Oh yes, and she's being chased by the CIA and has to hide her identity as the Silver Ninja.
Yes, come on!
you have no idea how excited I've been about reading this. And why shouldn't I be?
The first book was one big adventure; lots of promise, but plenty of room for improvement.
(See review of The Silver Ninja)
My major problem was with Cindy herself, and I am so relieved to say that she is much easier to get on with in this book. In fact, everything works better.
To be honest, I was lucky enough that Luna asked me to beta read his work - I thought that was an improvement - this finished piece is miles beyond!
It has kept the same sense of adventure; of not being afraid to dream big. But the characters are all better thought out, the writing is smoother and more accessible (let's be honest, the constant metaphors of the first book were cringeworthy). All of this makes the story thrilling and it does something special - it shows Luna's sense of humour, as I was chuckling through so many sections. Especially the British slang confusion.
Oh, and I can't resist mentioning the chocolate banana. Come on the chocolate banana! I love an inside joke.
wow. a new female superhero! It's about time. This book is not my usual preferred style, I'm more of an epic fantasy lover.
I really did think it was well thought out, brilliantly written and full of high octane action! The characters are well rounded, you can empathise with them, even the villain. a great read if you like high-tech, action packed books.
