This standalone novella in the smart, snarky, and action-packed Heroine Complex series follows personal superhero trainer Lucy Valdez and friends Aveda Jupiter and Bea and Evie Tanaka as they combat a new supernatural threat.

Lucy Valdez is many things: fight trainer/bodyguard to superheroines, fabulous vintage fashion plate, undisputed karaoke queen at local joint, The Gutter. She is also one of the toughest fighters in all of San Francisco without superpowers. So why can't she seem to confess her feelings to her longtime crush Rose Rorick, head of the San Francisco Police Department's Demon Unit?

Well.... actually, she knows why. She's afraid Rose won't like the real Lucy, the Lucy underneath all the fabulous bravado. (She is still fabulous underneath that bravado--just in a different way.)

When a mysterious new karaoke star rises up at The Gutter and eclipses her, Lucy finds her confidence further shaken--and when strange, seemingly supernatural happenings threaten both this new star and The Gutter's very existence, she must rise to the challenge and investigate alongside Rose. Will Lucy be able to vanquish the demonic threat to her beloved karaoke haven, confess her true feelings to Rose, and reclaim her karaoke throne?

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher I was able to read this novella in exchange for an honest review. *** Unsung Heroine by Sarah Kuhn is a novella that is supposed to act as a bridge between her first trilogy and her upcoming one. This novella is about Lucy Valdez, karaoke queen and badass bodyguard/fight trainer for a superhero duo. This quick, action packed read follows her being her amazing unpowered self as she saves the day during a karaoke competition, gets the girl, and becomes more aware of her own emotions and is better for it. I’ve seen Heroine Complex around previously and have been interested in reading it. Although I was left a little lost as to who everyone was in this I still found the story to be fairly fun.

Superheroes, karaoke, and witty dialogue abound in this fun and hilarious novella from Sarah Kuhn. Set between the first Heroine Complex Trilogy and the second, it's also a great stand alone novella that will make you fall in love with the complex and hilarious characters. Superhero bodyguard Lucy is a badass singer and a badass guard. When a mysterious new singer performs at Lucy's club, a series of attacks leaves everyone on edge. With the help of her friends and colleagues, Lucy must stop the attacks before someone she loves dies. Hilarious and full of action, Unsung Heroine is a fun and exciting read. Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read and review this title.
