A foundling adopted and raised by the Alpha League (the world's greatest superhero team), Electra has exhibited super powers since infancy. However, her past has remained a mystery for the most part, with those few people with any knowledge of her background being reluctant to talk.
Refusing to remain ignorant of her own origins, Electra embarks on a fact-finding mission intent on discovering who she really is. However, in addition to providing more questions than answers, her investigation causes her to cross paths with a powerful group of supervillains, who see in her a means of furthering their goal of world domination.
Finding herself in the crosshairs, Electra must now find a way to stop those seeking to exploit her unique talents for their own nefarious purposes. Because if she can't, the world will pay a heavy price.

I have got a Sensation Complex for Electra
Hardman returns to the Sensation Universe on yet another side trip, the first focusing on Mouse, and now this one about Electra. I am really enjoying these "side" adventures that focus on other characters (we need more Mouse) instead of just Sensation. Not that I'm tired of Sensation, just that there are other characters that cry out for more storylines (like Mouse). Electra gives us a search for her adoptive parents during the period of Sensation's book Coronation.
The story is a fun little mystery that goes back a little in time for us to see how she came into the hands of her adoptive team, who, I might say treat teens like total D-bags. They can risk their lives saving civies but then aren't allowed to metaphorically borrow the car. There is a huge amount of cognitive dissonance between what the teens are told they can and cannot do. It reminds me of the old argument, I can get draft and fight for my country at 18, but I'm not allowed to buy a beer until I'm 21.
This is a shorter story, but that's ok, as it does what it sets out to do, tell a compelling story about Electra! Now I need more of her, too. Can I ask Kevin Hardman to never sleep again? Would that be fair? Look, the story is fast paced, full of action and bad guys, has a sweet mystery, and answers a few questions. How much more could you want?
Unlike the other books, Naramore does not narrate this novel. Instead, Elizabeth Klett does the honors and she does a fine job. She has some huge shoes to fill, coming in behind Naramore, but she manages to pull this off and make Electra her own character. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

A pretty good Elecktra story.
Maybe they can spin of her character now that the writing is on the wall for her being replaced as Jim's girlfriend. She's a better main protagonist than a girlfriend, and the relationships in this series are all abbreviated anyway.
