Everybody in Chicago has a "superhero sighting" story. So when a villain attacks editorial assistant Gail Godwin and she's rescued by superhero Blaze, it's a great story, and nothing more. Until it happens again. And again. Now the media has dubbed her Hostage Girl, nobody remembers her real name, and people are convinced that Blaze is just her boyfriend, Jeremy, in disguise.

Gail's not so sure. All she knows is that when both Jeremy and Blaze leave town in the same week, she's probably doomed. Who will save her now?

Yet, miraculously, the villains lose interest. Gail is able to return to her life ... until she wakes up strapped to a metal table by a mad scientist who hasn't read the news. After escaping--now more than human herself--she's drawn into a secret underground world of superheroes. She'll have to come to terms with her powers (and weaknesses) to make it in the new society, and it's not easy. After all, there's a new villain on the rise, and she has her sights set on the one and only Hostage Girl.

A fun and easy read that has humour and superhero action. If you are in the mood for a superhero like story that mimics the marvel style story line, then this is the book for you. It is about a girl named Gail that seems to be kidnapped and rescued numerous times by superhero Blaze, that eventually everyone starts to call her "Hostage Girl", until she herself becomes a superhero. It is a good series that has a nice change from woman being helpless and always needing to be rescued to the hero of the story. Well worth the read.

I read this book and its successor, Supervillains Anonymous, before meeting the author at the 2016 Carondelet Authors' Breakfast. The concept is clever and great fun!
