Title: Superheroes Anonymous
Author: Lexie Dunne
Release date: November 18, 2014
Everybody in Chicago has a “superhero sighting” story. So when a villain attacks editorial assistant Gail Godwin and she’s rescued by superhero Blaze, it’s a great story, and nothing more. Until it happens again. And again.
Now, the media has dubbed her Hostage Girl, nobody remembers her real name, and people are convinced that Blaze is just Gail’s boyfriend Jeremy in disguise. Gail’s not so sure. All she knows is that when both Jeremy and Blaze leave town in the same week, she’s probably doomed. Who will save her now?
But when the villains miraculously lose interest, Gail is able to return to her life…until she wakes up strapped to a metal table by a mad scientist who hasn’t read the news. Escaping, and now more than human herself, she’s drawn into a secret underground world of superheroes. She’ll have to come to terms with her powers (and weakness) to make it in the new society, and it’s not easy. After all, there’s a new villain on the rise, and she has her sights set on the one and only Hostage Girl. (Goodreads)
Unfortunately, Gail is still a little too naive and trusting for someone who has been kidnapped so many times. There was more than one instance where I wanted to reach through the pages and smack her upside the back of her head! Why doesn’t she trust her new friends more? Why is she taking so many stupid risks? Why Gail, why?
This was a really fun read for me, until it suddenly ended. I honestly thought that I was missing pages as the ending was so abrupt. It’s like one of those old TV shows that suddenly end as the stagecoach is heading straight for the cliff! Wait! I need to know what happens next! Evil, evil cliffhanger!
