This week we devoured After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn. This urban fantasy tale takes readers to Commerce City, where being the "normal" daughter of the band of superheroes that protects the citizens has put a giant target on Celia West's back.
Morgan: So I’m not proud of this but I admit it, I choose this book for its cover. That and because it is written by the amazing Carrie Vaughn. It was just icing on the cake when I read the back-cover copy and saw that this was about superheroes. I’ve loved these types of stories ever since I saw The Incredibles.
Whitney: I, on the other hand, probably wouldn’t have picked this one off the shelf. It was the first Carrie Vaughn book I’ve read, but now I can’t wait to read more by her.
