Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Daw Books - July 4th, 2017

Goal-oriented superheroine Aveda Jupiter (aka Annie Chang) is largely recovered from the injury that sidelined her in Heroine Complex – just in time to face a San Francisco landscape that’s been cleared by demons thanks to the work of her BFF Evie Tanaka and their team. Aveda turns her laser-like (figurative, not actual, because superpowers!) focus to a different task –  being the best maid of honor for Evie, even if it means overriding Evie’s preferences with her own superior options. There’s so much to love in this series, including its celebration of female relationships, its enthusiastic embracing of geek culture, and hot nerd romance! – Maryelizabeth
