The Tanaka girls are back again in the third novel of the Heroine series. Beatrice Tanaka longs for her place in the superhero team, presently made up of her big sister Evie and her big sister’s best friend Aveda Jupiter. Bea has always felt like the extra, the little sister baggage that Evie and Aveda reluctantly carry, but she’s sure she can be so much more. And then she is sucked into a new demon threat, one that might involve Bea and Evie’s dead mom and might just be giving Bea lots of new oomph to her powers. So is all this new weirdness good or bad? Only the most kick-ass superheroines can figure that one out. This story will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled with being taken seriously by those they love. Honestly, I love these lively and sometimes zany adventure books. As with the first two of the series, this one is a tasty mix of funny, touching, and spicy, hot romance. Now, I’m normally more than a little annoyed by romances “tacked on” to novels, but the romances in this series are made of deeper stuff and decidedly refreshing. Though a reader can certainly jump into the series with this third book without being confused, there will be so much more there if you begin at the beginning and wolf down all three in a row.
