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.
To start off, I am so picky about super hero things. I literally only like X-Men. But, a bit BUT! This one sounded super cute and really good.
What I liked best about this book is how character driven it was. Iron Phantom was such an interesting character, and although I already knew who he was, it was still very much a mystery.
The swoon aspects were on point. I absolutely loved the discussions between Abby and Iron Phantom, and I could really feel their spark. If you like super hero stuff, then you’re in luck! Because there was that too! Overall a fun and swoony read!!
