Asian-American superheroines Evie Tanaka and Aveda Jupiter protect San Francisco from perilous threats in the second book in Sarah Kuhn's snarky and smart fantasy trilogy * "The superheroine we've been waiting for." --Seanan McGuire Once upon a time, Aveda Jupiter (aka Annie Chang) was demon-infested San Francisco's most beloved superheroine, a beacon of hope and strength and really awesome outfits. But all that changed the day she agreed to share the spotlight with her best friend and former assistant Evie Tanaka--who's now a badass, fire-wielding superheroine in her own right.  They were supposed to be a dynamic duo, but more and more, Aveda finds herself shoved into the sidekick role. Where, it must be said, she is not at all comfortable. It doesn't help that Aveda's finally being forced to deal with fallout from her diva behavior--and the fact that she's been a less than stellar friend to Evie. Or that Scott Cameron--the man Aveda's loved for nearly a decade--is suddenly giving her the cold shoulder after what seemed to be some promising steps toward friendship. Or that the city has been demon-free for three months in the wake of Evie and Aveda's apocalypse-preventing battle against the evil forces of the Otherworld, leaving Aveda without the one thing she craves most in life: a mission. All of this is causing Aveda's burning sense of heroic purpose--the thing that's guided her all these years--to falter. In short, Aveda Jupiter is having an identity crisis. When Evie gets engaged and drafts Aveda as her maid-of-honor, Aveda finally sees a chance to reclaim her sense of self and sets out on a single-minded mission to make sure Evie has the most epic wedding ever. But when a mysterious, unseen supernatural evil rises up and starts attacking brides-to-be, Aveda must summon both her superheroine and best friend mojo to take down the enemy and make sure Evie's wedding goes off without a hitch--or see both her city and her most important friendship destroyed forever.… (mer)

After saving the city from a demon queen, Aveda Jupiter and Evie Tanaka face a doldrums period in which no superheroing is needed. Evie takes it well, but Aveda cannot stand the slow pace. Both of their lives are upended when Evie's boyfriend proposes to her, and demon activity starts popping up every place where brides-to-be congregate.

This book picks up right where the previous one left off, but there's enough back story given throughout the text that a reader could start with this sequel and not feel lost. Unlike the previous title in which Evie was the first POV narrator, this time we hear directly from Aveda. I wasn't sure at first if I was going to love that change, but I actually did. We got to see her perspective on things while getting deeper into her emotions, particularly as she dealt with the tension she felt between her Aveda Jupiter superhero persona and her actual Annie Chang identity. In addition, her parents showed up this title, allowing her to delve into this storyline about expectations and duty more fully than in the previous book.

All in all, this was a fun romp that spoofed on the Bridezilla trend with satirical tongue-in-cheek comments. Meanwhile it was full of action and a bit of mystery. (Even if I guessed the culprit behind it all much earlier than the reveal, it was still nice to have something to unravel.) There's also some romantic aspects while simultaneously navigating female friendships, and dealing with other interpersonal issues. So much packed into one book! I'm looking forward to the next title in this series. ( )

Let's be honest. Annie and Eve are not very good superheroes. But I enjoy them nonetheless.

I will say that this is an very 'easy' story. The characters talk about what they feel. They some growth and have excellent commentary about their heritage/perception from others. The reason why it doesn't bother me unlike in other stories is because I like ... You know I really don't know why I like this so much beyond 'superheroes'. ( )

Really enjoyable installment in the Heroine Complex series. I liked this one more than the first book — probably because I sympathized with Aveda's personality issues more than I did with Evie's in book one. The demon attack part of the plot was really fun, and blended nicely with the personality conflict part of the plot. Nicely crafted book, and a great escape read. ( )

Set a few months after the previous book our heroine is having a bit a crisis. There hasn’t been any demon activity for her to fight and Aveda/Annie have to face the fact that for the last decade she hasn’t been the best friend she should have to Evie her childhood best friend/ assistant/ and now superhero partner. The book has Annie doing things to try and make amends for being a jerk to her friends for a long time and to be a better person. When Evie gets engaged Annie sees this as her ticket to make it be the best wedding for her friend. Things don’t always work out and there are some hurt feelings but in the end the bad guy that pops up during the wedding planning gets taken care of and the wedding turns out to be great.

The first half of this book is kind of hard to read. The book is from Aveda Jupiter’s perspective and I spent half the book mentally (and sometimes actually) yelling at her to stop what she was doing and pay attention to someone other than herself for five seconds! But the whole point of the book is getting her to a place where she can see what she’s doing and start improving. So, it’s not easy to read, but it’s well done. Overall I enjoyed it and I definitely recommend the series.
