Sometimes the villain must create the hero.
The streets of Arcania are overrun with crime, deteriorating as a madman named Fortune makes himself at home. He shows no mercy, striking down anyone in his path – including Nova Benson's little sister. Devastated, Nova vows to seek justice for her family, but aside from her freak strength and impenetrable skin, how is she supposed to stop a monster like Fortune?
Cole Warner wants to help people. Entrusted to keep his family's secret, he's also frustrated at having to hide his gift. He knows he could do more to help in the fight against Fortune. If he could convince his sister Penelope to join him, they might even have a chance at beating him. When Cole meets Nova, he realizes his whole world is about to change. And he's going to welcome it with open arms.
Falling for each other wasn't part of the plan.
Then again, neither was becoming a superhero.
Fans of Marissa Meyer and Marie Lu will love the first book in the complete YA trilogy as USA Today bestselling author Liz Long's gifted teen superheroes attempt to save their city from its impending demise.
