The second book in a trilogy that takes the superhero mythos and turns it on its ear.
Once upon a time, Aveda Jupiter was demon-infested San Francisco’s most beloved superheroine. But all that changed the day her best friend and former assistant Evie Tanaka became a badass, fire-wielding superheroine in her own right. They were supposed to be a dynamic duo, but Aveda now finds herself shoved into the sidekick role.
Aveda is finally forced to deal with fallout from her diva behavior, including the fact that she’s been a less-than-stellar friend to Evie. And, the man Aveda’s loved for years is suddenly giving her the cold shoulder. Also, the city has been demon-free for months in the wake of Evie and Aveda’s apocalypse-preventing battle against evil... causing Aveda’s burning sense of heroic purpose — which has guided her all these years — to falter. In short, Aveda Jupiter is having an identity crisis.
When Evie gets engaged and drafts Aveda as her maid-of-honor, Aveda sets out on a single-minded mission to make sure Evie has the most epic wedding ever. But when a mysterious supernatural evil starts attacking brides-to-be, Aveda must summon both her superheroine and best friend mojo to take down the enemy and make sure Evie’s wedding goes off without a hitch — or see both her city and her most important friendship destroyed forever.
