When one of the world's greatest superheroes dies in her arms, Lona Chang takes it upon herself to investigate his murder. Armed only with a power she barely understands and a mysterious coded book, Lona begins a quest for answers that leads her down a dark rabbit hole of secrets—secrets the ancient organization known as the Guild is determined to keep hidden at all costs. Meanwhile, when a new threat descends upon Arc City, Lona's soulmate (and freshly minted superhero) Awesome Jones defies the Guild, dons the cape and cowl of his father and finds a group of unlikely allies. But can Awesome trust them—or himself? He'll have to fight his own demons first if he has any hope of defending the town–and the people–he loves. As tensions rise between the Guild, Lona, Awesome, his allies and Arc City's criminal underground, Lona realizes that life, and the answers to its questions, are never as simple as they seem in comic books.
My Thoughts: I wasn't quite sure just what exactly a super hero detective story was but this was pretty fun! This is a straight up detective story in the middle of a world with super heroes, politics, and lots of secrets. It did take me several pages to get really pulled into the flow of the writing and the story itself. Part of the issue may have been that I didn't read the first book in the series. While the story itself is stand alone the world and the relationships are fairly complex. If you enjoy mysteries and super heroes this is a series you really need to read!
