Super heroes don't always mean good headlines for everyone...especially Meg Sawyer who refuses to become collateral damage in Lunar City. But today, it's only up, up, and away for author Taylor Simonds who's debut novel breaks barriers at a #1 new release spot on Amazon!
Collateral Damage blasts onto shelves today!
If given the choice, would you rather be a super hero or a civilian?
"A spunky and jubilant love letter to superhero fans." -Kirkus Reviews
The marks of a true hero.
Meg Sawyer has none of these things.
Meg has never stopped a moving bus with her bare hands, been bitten by a radioactive insect, or done anything moderately resembling saving the world. She doesn't have to. She's a background citizen, a nobody, one of the swarms of faceless civilians of Lunar City--where genetically enhanced superhumans straight out of the comics have thwarted evil for years.
For as long as the Supers have existed, Meg has had one goal: to not become a casualty in their near-daily battles for justice. And for the last seventeen years, she's managed to do just that. Sure, her minimum-wage job at the local coffee shop isn't great, she can't even leave her apartment without loading herself up with protective gear, and her car was just hijacked to throw at a supervillain (again), but she's not dead yet.
But when Meg accidentally finds one of the city's perfect, invincible protectors murdered under extremely suspicious circumstances, her whole "innocent bystander" strategy falls apart. After being coerced by his determined girlfriend into a mission to help prevent the deaths of the remaining Supers, Meg finds herself forced into the foreground of a story she never wanted to be part of-one that challenges everything she thought she knew about both her city and herself.
"Simonds writes smart and sassy characters but takes the time to give them emotional depth..." -MuggleNet
