Waiting on Wednesday: After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn

>>Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Here's my choice for this week's Waiting on Wednesday,  hosted by Breaking the Spine. The cover was releases a couple days ago. I absolutely want to read this! It looks right up my alley. I am always looking for superhero fiction so when I saw this I freaked out just a little bit.

Title: After the Golden Age
Author: Carrie Vaughn
Publication Date: April 12, 2011

From Goodreads:
Can an accountant defeat a supervillain? Celia West, only daughter of the heroic leaders of the superpowered Olympiad, has spent the past few years estranged from her parents and their high-powered lifestyle. She’s had enough of masks and heroics, and wants only to live her own quiet life out from under the shadow of West Plaza and her rich and famous parents.

Then she is called into her boss’ office and told that as the city’s top forensic accountant, Celia is the best chance the prosecution has to catch notorious supervillain the Destructor for tax fraud. In the course of the trial, Celia’s troubled past comes to light and family secrets are revealed as the rift between Celia and her parents grows deeper. Cut off from friends and family, Celia must come to terms with the fact that she might just be Commerce City’s only hope.

This all-new and moving story of love, family, and sacrifice is an homage to Golden Age comics that no fan will want to miss.

  1. I enjoy Carrie's books. I haven't heard much on this one though. I hope when you get your book, it is everything you hope it to be. Check out what I am Waiting On Wednesday for.

  2. The Storm Before Atlanta
    By Karen Schwabach
    Publication date: December 28, 2010

    At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.
