AFTER THE GOLDEN AGE by Carrie Vaughn
Can an accountant defeat a supervillain? Celia West, only daughter of the heroic leaders of the superpowered Olympiad, has spent the past few years estranged from her parents and their high-powered lifestyle. She’s had enough of masks and heroics, and wants only to live her own quiet life out from under the shadow of West Plaza and her rich and famous parents.
Then she is called into her boss’ office and told that as the city’s top forensic accountant, Celia is the best chance the prosecution has to catch notorious supervillain the Destructor for tax fraud. In the course of the trial, Celia’s troubled past comes to light and family secrets are revealed as the rift between Celia and her parents grows deeper. Cut off from friends and family, Celia must come to terms with the fact that she might just be Commerce City’s only hope.
Since I'm still on my Carrie Vaughn kick, I thought I would feature her next book on this week's Waiting on Wednesday. Superheroes? YES, PLEASE. A strong female character? YES, PLEASE. Love the cover too. Can't wait to get my paws on it!
