It's not easy being a superhero's daughter....Carrie Vaughn has captured legions of fans with her wildly popular Kitty Norville novels. Now she uses her extraordinary wit and imagination to tell a sensational new story about superhuman heroes—and the people who have to live with them.Most people dream of having superheroes for parents, but not Celia West. The only daughter of Captain Olympus and Spark, the world's greatest champions, she has no powers of her own, and the most exciting thing she's ever done is win a silver medal in a high school swim meet. Meanwhile, she's the favorite hostage of every crime boss and supervillain in Comemrce City. She doesn't have a code name, but if she did, it would probably be Bait Girl, the Captive Wonder.Rejecting her famous family and its legacy, Celia has worked hard to create a life for herself beyond the shadow of their capes, becoming a skilled forensic accountant. But when her parents' archenemy, the Destructor, faces justice in the "Trial of the Century," Celia finds herself sucked back into the more-than-mortal world of Captain Olympus—and forced to confront a secret that she hoped would stay buried forever.

I really enjoyed this one. Not quite a five star but pretty close. Recommended to those that enjoy comic books like Justice League or Justice Society.

5.0 Coming of Golden Age?
I am so glad that I read this book just weeks before the sequel comes out! It's not that this ended on a cliffhanger or anything like that -- in fact, if I'd read this when it first came out, I wouldn't have thought there would ever be a sequel. The book is complete on its own. No, I'm excited be...

Celia West is tired. Of what it means to be the daughter of two superheroes – the world’s greatest champions. Of being noticed, and not for the right reasons (see previous line). Of not having any superpowers of her own. And, not that she knows it yet, of being afraid of her own past.Then she’s aske...

1.0 After the Golden Age
Although I read this book in a single afternoon, I ended up feeling irritated and a bit cheated at the end. An awful lot of the book is a prolonged whine by the main character, Celia West, who has a major issue with being the normal daughter of two super-powered parents. The book starts out all righ...
