Publisher's Summary

Emily Monroe may be a lot of things, but one thing is for sure: She is not the Chosen One. 

Emily is a normal girl working at Big Burger who has the unfortunate luck to look exactly like Big City's superhero darling, the Chosen One. It has been the bane of her existence, as it disrupts her life and the lives of those around her when supervillains come knocking, wanting to prove their mettle by fighting the Chosen One. Nobody listens when she insists she isn't who they think she is. 

With common sense and years of rage built up inside, she usually serves their butts to them on a platter, asking, "Did you want fries with that?" 

No cape required.

Awesome

This story maybe very short but it is well worth the price of admission, it’s very funny and very entertaining. I also really like that it treats the lesbian relationship as completely normal, it feels no need to define itself as anything other, that’s the way it should be. People’s relationship should not require any definition regardless of whether the the person is gay, straight or whatever, a heterosexual person such as myself under most circumstances doesn’t have to denote myself as being straight and I feel this should be the norm regardless of sexuality, equality people, equality.

I highly recommended this book, really the own small critique I have if you can even call it thus is that I just wish it was SO MUCH LONGER, it’s so much fun, however I certainly look forward to the next in the series and hope the series is a long one, preferably long novels.

A light-hearted superhero story with a dash of wlw

I loved this book; it was a funny/silly story with a slightly serious undertone (if you stop and think about it).

The author did not dramatize the story; they kept it lighthearted, pg, and quick-paced. I will definitely read it again when I need a little pick-me-up.

To enjoy the story you need to either expect some nonsensical developments, or have a good suspension of disbelief. The plot is there, but it is speedy (think the antithesis of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time), and the characters are introduced, but the main character is the most developed; the rest are just plot-movers or fun fanservice. :)

Need I say more. Once again, an original story with funny characters and all the sarcasm I could wish for. Can't wait for the next one.

Short Sweet & Snarky.

I've always try to keep an eye out for lesbian super hero books. it's... kinda my niche but this one almost completely slipped by me. I think it was the low number of reviews. This one really deserves more attention. It's sweet and the romance is cute it's a sweet fluffy bit of smart-ass between bulkier more serious fair.

Sooooo good!!

So much fun it should be illegal. The perfect mix of fantasy/sci fi and snark with a touch of romance added in. Damn, 5 stars doesn't do it justice. Just listen or read. Even if you are 0.01% geek/nerd you will likey. Can't wait for the next!

It's Great

It doesn't have the sentimentality of most of the author's works I've read, uh, listened to. What it does have is humor and irony with a some life lessons tossed in for good measure. I'm not a real fan of fantasy, but the fantasy is limited in this story or is so overplayed it feels more tongue in cheek than actual fantasy. This is 107 minutes of fun and humor; enjoy.

More Please

I was hesitant at first but got into this book quickly.... it’s a cliff hanger and I can’t wait for more! Hollie Jackson is one of my favorite narrators to listen and and Erik is such a great author...keep the good works coming!

Highly entertaining

The tone of this book is it's best quality. it is constantly upbeat snarky and go-getting/exasperated at problems not emo about them. the story is just under 2 hours long though and sadly the author doesn't seem to write with the same tone in all his other works. so once it's done you will have to search long and hard for something similar.
