Harper Voyager Impulse, 2016
336 pages (paperback)
Gail Godwin—once so famous for being kidnapped by supervillains, the media still calls her Hostage Girl—is done with superheroes and their shadowy schemes. She’s got a cute boyfriend, a great roommate, and she’s even returned to her old job. For the first time in years, life is exactly what she wants it to be.
But when a figure from her past resurfaces, he brings with him a plague that changes the game for every superhero and villain out there. Now Gail must team up with both friend and foe to help save the world she thought she had left behind.
It won’t be easy, but for Gail Godwin, nothing ever is.
–Description from Amazon
The Superheroes Anonymous series has been one of my guilty pleasures since I discovered the first book on Edelweiss in 2014. In the third installment, Gail Godwin is done with Davenport, a superhero corporation, but gets dragged back in when her creator reappears.
Gail is still sarcastic and has a knack for further angering her enemies, and the other characters support her well. It’s nice to see in this third novel that she can support them too, especially Guy.
The action is fast-paced and well choreographed with each person doing his or her part. One of the things I love about Gail is that she didn’t automatically become an ass-kicking machine. Gail’s working to master her abilities and is occasionally awkward and clumsy in the process.
Fun characters, action, and a little romance make this a great series. I happily recommend it to anyone who likes superheroes.
