Asian-American superheroines Evie Tanaka and Aveda Jupiter protect San Francisco from perilous threats in the second book in Sarah Kuhn's snarky and smart fantasy trilogy "The superheroine weve been waiting for." Seanan McGuire Once upon a time, Aveda Jupiter (aka Annie Chang) was demon-infested San Franciscos most beloved superheroine, a beacon of hope and strength and really awesome outfits. But all that changed the day she agreed to share the spotlight with her best friend and former assistant Evie Tanakawhos now a badass, fire-wielding superheroine in her own right. They were supposed to be a dynamic duo, but more and more, Aveda finds herself shoved into the sidekick role. Where, it must be said, she is not at all comfortable. It doesnt help that Avedas finally being forced to deal with fallout from her diva behaviorand the fact that shes been a less than stellar friend to Evie. Or that Scott Cameronthe man Avedas loved for nearly a decadeis suddenly giving her the cold shoulder after what seemed to be some promising steps toward friendship. Or that the city has been demon-free for three months in the wake of Evie and Avedas apocalypse-preventing battle against the evil forces of the Otherworld, leaving Aveda without the one thing she craves most in life: a mission. All of this is causing Avedas burning sense of heroic purposethe thing thats guided her all these yearsto falter. In short, Aveda Jupiter is having an identity crisis. When Evie gets engaged and drafts Aveda as her maid-of-honor, Aveda finally sees a chance to reclaim her sense of self and sets out on a single-minded mission to make sure Evie has the most epic wedding ever. But when a mysterious, unseen supernatural evil rises up and starts attacking brides-to-be, Aveda must summon both her superheroine and best friend mojo to take down the enemy and make sure Evies wedding goes off without a hitchor see both her city and her most important friendship destroyed forever.

I think that part of being the best superheroine we can be involved embracing that messiness. Realizing there's nothing wrong with us if we don't have every single thing figured out. Letting our big, messy pile of emotions make us stronger. Celebrating when we do well and admitting when we fuck up.

I‘m working on my #sfftbrchallenge list and switching between these two books. I picked up the tagged book because it looked good even though my library didn‘t have the first in the series (sacrilege!). It‘s really cute and funny so far AND fits a few of the challenge categories so win-win! @LibrarianRyan

LibrarianRyan I have book one of that series sitting in my living room pile. That's awesome. 2y
mcipher @LibrarianRyan Yay! Great minds! 😊 2y

I enjoyed this one as much as the first, even though I was annoyed by Annie/Aveda at first. I came to realize it was only the things about her that remind me of myself that I was struggling with. I know this book is really just candy, and not “great literature” but I understand Annie‘s Hurricane self in a way I haven‘t related to many other main characters.

Female Asian American superheroes - not something you see a tremendous amount of in this world so the first in this series Heroine Complex (where the sidekick realized her own power) was a must read for me last year. This is the sequel where now the superheroine realizes that sometimes to be a better friend your need to be a little less super and a little more human. Both great books with quirky characters and a happily ever after romance to boot.

Went to pick up a library hold, and the Lucky Day shelf was insanely well stocked! It's usually slim pickings. I managed to limit myself to just one, The Lying Game.

Laalaleighh What‘s a lucky day shelf? 2y
BookHoarder32 Is it like the new books recently returned? 2y
leslieisreading @Laalaleighh @BookHoarder32 I don't know if other libraries do it or just mine - it is recent releases that are really popular and hard to get - copies are set aside that can't be put on hold, and when you go to the library you can check that shelf to see if any of them are available! 2y

BookHoarder32 That's awesome! 2y
leslieisreading @Laalaleighh @BookHoarder32 I love it! I am always compelled to check the shelf every time I go to the library, even when I know I probably don't have time for the extra book/s. 😁 2y
Laalaleighh Haha I would be too! 2y

Not quite as great as the first book, but still a lot of fun. Can't wait to see what else Sarah Kuhn puts out.

SO PSYCHED to be starting this. If you haven't read the first book yet, Heroine Complex, then you're doing something wrong in life.

OffTheBeatenShelf.com Sounds awesome! Is it a novel or comic/graphic novel? The cover makes me think it's a graphic novel. 3y
