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.
Outside, things aren’t going all that great either. There’s a conspiracy that runs all the way to the bedrock of the superhero community, and it’s affecting everybody Gail loves. With her friends in the crosshairs, it’s up to her to escape and get to the bottom of things. Subterfuge, crime-fighting, and running away from everybody you know should be a cinch, right?
Wrong. Gail faces off against hero and villain alike just to stay alive, and you know what they say about supervillains. If you can’t beat them... join them.
They say that the stars aligned in perfect harmony in early October of 1984, creating a celestial site unseen before or after, wowing people across time and space... and Rory Gilmore was born. The next day, Lexie Dunne burst forth into the world, and even better, she's not fictional. Now, years and years later, she's a science-fiction fantasy author with a love for superheroes, sarcastic women protagonists, Boston Terriers, and Dr Pepper. Not necessarily in that order.
