Never trust a guy in spandex. In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind. That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life. After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.

This book surprised me. You might have noticed that I didn’t add fantasy or science fiction to genre. If you’re expecting a kick ass villain and superhero things– this might not be for you. But if you’re looking for a fun read I’d recommend this for you.

I love Abigail’s relationship with her brother. It can be annoying when everyone loves and keeps talking about your sibling but that doesn’t make you resend or love them any less.

Iron Phantom watches The Big Bang Theory and that made me so happy for some reason. That’s one of the only shows I have in common with one of my sisters.

I loved the romance for beginning. YES! Finally a romance where I’m just ‘meh’ about it. I was shipping them since the moment they met.

The only down side about this book was that it reminded me of Simon Vs Homo Sapiens Agenda. Abigail is in a drama club like Simon was and she’s trying to find out the supervillain’s identity like Simon tried to guess Blue’s.

All in all I loved this book and barely but it down when I had to go asleep. It was just so cute and I loved the relationships, even between Abigail and Sarah who could sometimes be annoying with her fangirling.

5 stars
