Welcome to Gemini City, where super-battles disrupt rush hour, insurance claim adjusters rival rock stars, and villains stash the souls of murdered superheroes inside little children.

It’s been ten years since Shay Sinclair’s parents were murdered by a super villain, leaving she and her sister to fend for themselves. Now at age sixteen, Shay has something that villain wants. Something he needs. After a chance encounter with a superhero in a stairwell, something awakens in Shay, something that could get her killed.

Max Steel has spent the last ten years searching for one particular soul. Now, a coincidental run-in with Shay Sinclair leaves Max closer than he’s ever been to everything he’s ever wanted. But Max hits a brick wall when he goes after her. Unlike other girls her age, Shay isn’t into superheroes. So, if Max wants to win her over and be reunited with the soul inside her, he must get creative. He invites Shay into a seductive world of fame, glamour, luxury, and epic battles with villainous foes.

Now that Shay’s in the mix with superheroes and crazed villains, everyone wants a piece of her. A super villain wants to devour her soul, a superhero wants to love her, and Shay just wants to go back to her normal life. It’s not like in the movies. In real life, superheroes suck.

In this excerpt from Superheroes Suck, you really get a feel of what an average night is like for sixteen-year-old Shay Sinclair.

Ollie snatched the remote off the couch. He flipped through channels until finding a superhero recap, an easy feat on a showdown night.
“Look. There it is.” He ran up to the large screen and pointed beyond the close-up of a super passionate superhero kiss. Far in the background, cloaked in the shadow of fallen stone, Firestorm crouched over Antiserum on the sidewalk.
“What the—” Shay dashed beside Ollie to join him in gawking at the television. Sure enough, it played out just as Ollie described. “What do you think he’s saying to Antiserum?”
“Something like … I’m sorry I left you and drove you evil. I promise if you change your ways, I’ll take you back.” Ollie clutched his chest, rocking softly on those high heels.
“I’m being for real.”
“So am I.”
“Anyway.” Shay dropped back onto the couch and kicked her feet up on the coffee table. “Did you do that economics essay?”
“Oh crap.” Ollie grabbed his sneakers and headed for the front door. “I gotta jet. Catch ya tomorrow.”
“Leave the heels,” Shay called out, reaching for the remote.
“Yeah. Yeah.”
The door squeaked open and then clicked shut. Shay looked over her shoulder at an empty foyer. A heavy silence lingered throughout the condo, despite the commercial blasting through the television’s speakers. She always felt this way when Ollie went home— extra hollow. It was his shine. The guy amped up the world’s sparkle each time he arrived, then sucked it from the area when he left.
A buzz shook Shay’s cell phone. She wrangled it from her jean pocket and unlocked the screen.
Evie: Do your homework! Aren’t you glad I checked in :)
“I’m doing my homework,” Shay grumbled, using her toes to reach for her backpack. “And yeah. I am glad you checked in.”
