Publisher's Summary

For 35 years, the United States and Russia each had their own superhero.

Three days ago, America's hero died.

Today will be bad.

In the face of an overwhelming attack, one young woman—unassuming and anonymous—might be America's only hope.

Her codename...Cobalt Blue.

A superhero tale with real consequences

Great to hear a superhero story with thought given to the consequences not only to the powered, but also to the average bystander. In this tale, the world really turns on the balance of power, and death is a real possibility.

Not worth the money

This book has a pore story line which was very basic and predictable. The story chops and changes to much through the past and present for a book so short. I guess this book looking at it someone who is just starting to read

Great fun

Great story, a little short for my taste. Wish the backgrounds of the families had gotten more attention.
