After The Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn


Title: After The Golden Age
Author: Carrie Vaughn
Publisher: Tor Books
Release Date: April 12, 2011
Received: For Review
Rate: 5

Summary: 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.

Review: I kind of want to see what happens next. I want to see what Anna grows up to be. I loved this story from start to end. Although for a time I did stop reading it (not by choice) I remembered everything. This was an absolutely amazing book.
