Chloe Cole wants to stop her crazy dreams that she's a costumed superheroine battling a supervillain, but when her comics fanboy ex throws her into a bizarre escapade involving the New York City comic book scene, suddenly she's having wild, superpowered adventures in an oddly retro mirror universe. To fight a real supervillain, she's forced to meet the father she never knew, dodge the suspicious courtship of a powerful publishing boss, and embrace her destiny as a superheroine.

 

PG-rated nonstop comic book style adventure novel set in two universes, with plenty of super-powered battles and recognizable classic comic book scenarios—and some iffy romance thrown in.

Can't a superheroine catch a break? Chloe Cole wants to cosplay in her Temporary Superheroine uniform at the Chicago comicon, but when the evil Mistress Miraculous threatens massive disaster, Chloe has to step up and fight. She's the only one who can control the Dimensional Diamond and save the comicon.

Chloe flings herself into superheroine mode again in another comic book–style adventure novel featuring mysterious superpowers, fast action, and a long list of suspects with grudges against a comic book company celebrating its 75th anniversary. This was supposed to be a fun weekend, but there's far too much drama—especially in Chloe's personal relationships.
