    Suzy is searching. A part of her is tired of all the running but deep down she knows that it is all worthwhile. Her connections to some questionable characters put her in danger. In the midst of all the chaos, she finds herself in the custody of a young girl whose safety hangs in the balance. A girl who she feels is her responsibility. She, therefore, embarks on an action-filled trip around the galaxy in the adventurous way that only she can. Will Suzy evade the hunters or will she just have to run from an attractive one this time? The second book in a series is always tough to execute especially if it follows the masterpiece that was Suzie Spitfire Kills Everybody. However, Joe Canzano seems to have outdone his first installment in the series. I especially appreciate the in depth characterization throughout this book. He has made Suzie a more wholesome and lovable character, but still a spirit animal full of grit and moxie. In Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus Joe Canzano has added a dimension to her that we may have missed before. This time she has to be a heroine while setting a good example for her protégé. She is still a handful though. Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus is colored with a delightful mix of profanity and cutting wit. It's a careful mix of suspense and second guessing that keeps the book engaging. I could rarely guess what was going to happen next. I was surprised by a few twists, shocked by others, and utterly flabbergasted by a few wrinkles in the plot. Everything happens quickly. The author has favored the use of imagery in this novel. He uses a brilliant application of adjectives among other figures of speech to evoke vivid mental images for the reader. He even affects a splash of hyperbole that elevates the prose and keeps the story consistently compelling.

  • Keeps you guessing

    Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus is a work of fiction in the science fiction and fantasy sub-genres and was penned by author Joe Canzano. Written for adult audiences due to some scenes of violence, use of explicit language, and reference to adult themes and situations, this is a quick read with plenty of light fun and adventure for casual sci-fi and fantasy readers. Our titular heroine Suzy is an outlaw who makes a trip to Venus to attempt to redeem her reputation. Once there, however, she finds herself in much deeper turmoil than ever before, embroiled in a world of gangs and revolutions. Author Joe Canzano has crafted a high stakes action novel that encompasses many different genres into its unique breed of fun, including crime drama, science fiction, fantasy adventure, and women’s action fiction. The protagonist Suzy is highly likable for her smarts and inventiveness, whilst also appealing in her nature as a misunderstood outlaw who will cross lines only when she really needs to. The criminal mystery elements of the plot are well-paced out to keep you guessing, with lots of twists and well-laid surprises for us to uncover through Suzy’s eyes. I thought the dialogue and the presentation were particularly slick, delivering stylish lines that also characterized new figures in scenes right away and set the mood well. Overall, I would highly recommend Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus to fantasy fans seeking a fun multi-genre journey to go on without having to concentrate but just enjoy the ride.

  • Highly recommend this book

    Reviewed by Grant Leishman for Readers' Favorite Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus by Joe Canzano is a science fiction thriller that takes us from Earth to Venus, where Suzy Spitfire gets caught up in a people-power revolution against the corrupt and evil government of Venus, along with the secretive, elusive and power-hungry Snake Eyes cult. Suzy is a wanted criminal on Earth after killing a police officer who had murdered her father and a man who had abused and tortured her baby sister, who later committed suicide, following a period of being sex-trafficked. Her real goal though is to catch an evil and vicious serial killer who has changed his identity and is believed to be now living quietly on Venus. Suzy is a loner, by virtue of her lifestyle, but she has discovered a love for a tough gang member, Ricardo, and his inept and soppy poetry. But it is only when the sweet but far from innocent Kiara stows aboard her spaceship that Suzy’s truly compassionate and loving nature comes to the fore when Kiara reminds her so much of her own departed sister. Suzy will do anything to protect Kiara from danger but she must not lose sight of her original purpose in coming to Venus – to hunt down the serial-killer Shogun Hunter and make sure he never has the opportunity to destroy any more lives. Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus is not a pure science fiction story; it just happens to be set sometime in the future, with the bulk of the action taking place on Venus. It is a political thriller in some ways and a superb one at that. The “geeky” stuff so often prevalent in sci-fi is not in this story and I appreciated that. Author Joe Canzano has done a wonderful job in creating a diverse cast of characters, especially Suzy, Ricardo, and Kiara who elicit empathy and understanding from the reader. Suzy is a tough, courageous, and tenacious leading lady but she is also softened by her “flaws”. She has a heart and she constantly questions her lifestyle, the decisions she’s made, and her own personal makeup. Kiara, who has seen much pain in her first fourteen years, still retains the sweet innocence and idol worship of Suzy, which makes her so appealing to a reader and also to Suzy as a big sister. Through it all, Ricardo, a rough-around-the-edges gang member with his atrocious poetry and a deep love of Suzy, plods along through the adventure, determined not to lose the love of his life. The action is fast, furious, and copious which, combined with the sweetness and humanity of the lead characters, lifts this story above its competition in the genre. This is a standalone novel but the author leaves a big door for the next installment should he choose to write it and I, for one, hope he does. Suzy Spitfire and her cadre have endeared themselves to me and I would like to see more from them. I can highly recommend this book – a great read.

  • A lot of fun!

    Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite When the hunter becomes the hunted, bullets fly in all directions. Suzy ‘Spitfire’ Castillo flies to Venus to capture a serial killer while she's being tagged by bounty hunters and cops alike. Even if she escapes her hunters, she can't escape her past. She can, however, attempt to leave her dangerous lifestyle behind and be a great role model for Kiara, her new teenage friend. Suzy's salvation is challenged when she's dragged into a war for power between the Snake Eyes gang, the Casino Cartel, the politicians, and the revolutionists. Prepare for an action-packed ride in Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus. The road to redemption is filled with unexpected twists and turns, and Joe Canzano finds a way to keep the reader gripped for every exciting, heart-racing moment of it. I just had to know what would happen next! Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus is quite immersive and well written. Adding to the thrill are the brilliant technological advancements and exciting space adaptations illustrated by Joe Canzano: floating cities, bio-engineered hair, and clothes that change colors, memory reprogrammers, body-heat-tracking darts, and much more. Be assured that the tech details do not bog down the story. I recommend this to a mature audience because violence, profanity, and sexual content are present. I had a lot of fun with Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus; it is one of those books that make you wish the worldbuilding was real and we were all flying in space ships and living across planets.
