    Summary

    Of mercenaries, Machiavelli writes: “they are disunited, ambitious, and without discipline, unfaithful, valiant before friends, cowardly before enemies; they have neither the fear of God nor fidelity to men”

    The Kryptonian captain is the worst of their kind, ruthless, ferocious, and unscrupulous, one who could never be charged with cowardice. There is not a fight the Red Daughter has not won, not a city she has not attacked and brought to its knees. There is no man, woman, or child in Italy who would not tremble at her name.

    It is exactly why Lex Luthor hires her to head his army that he sets out to wipe his bastard sister’s city off the face of the earth.

    Summary

    Adora is staring out into the distance, looking up at the sun, her eyes wide and guileless. Everything about Adora is guileless. She is as easy to read as a cloudless sky. Of course, they didn’t have cloudless skies, back in the Fright Zone.

    Adora has never faked anything in her life. Catra, a practiced liar, can’t parse exactly how, though they grew up in the same place, Adora became what she is: a hero, even without the sword.
