New superhero Gail Godwin, the one and only Hostage Girl, is in big trouble: her nemesis Chelsea is loose, someone close to her is dead, and everybody thinks Gail did it.
To make matters worse, Davenport Industries has thrown her into a prison that just happens to be full of the very same supervillains who used to kidnap her on an almost daily basis. (Goodreads)
It’s been awhile since I read Superheroes Anonymous, but it was easy to dive right back into the story! While I think it’s best to read them in order, I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary.
Gail, formerly Hostage Girl, is blamed for the murder of a close friend and thrown into jail. Not just any jail but supervillian jail, full of the bad guys who used to kidnap her on a regular basis! Uh-oh!
I really loved the idea of the supervillian jail! It makes sense if you think about it, as it’s full of powerful supervillians who need something to occupy their time, so they put them to work. And wait ’til you see how they put them to work! Very clever!
It was nice that Gail has finally learned a thing or two since the first book, as she was a little too passive in that one for my tastes. While she’s still vulnerable at times and not in complete control of her abilities, she’s learning.
Unfortunately, even with her new powers, Gail is once again being used by supervillians for their own nefarious plans. That girl really needs to start coming up with her own plans, just in case!
Our favorite superheroes are back to help Gail and there are even a few new faces! Good guys, bad guys, plot twists, evil schemes, they’re all here!
Really enjoyed this one and, despite the aforementioned evil cliffhanger from book one, it was well worth the wait!
