Waiting on Wednesday - 1/5

Okay "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week my waiting on Wednesday book is After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn. I have liked all of Vaughn's previous book (she is most well known for the Kitty  Norville series).  This one is supposed to be about super heroes kind of and I am excited to read it.  See below for cover and synopsis.

After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn
Length: 304 pages
Publisher: Tor
Release Date: April 12, 2011
ISBN: 978-0765325556

Synopsis from "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.

This all-new and moving story of love, family, and sacrifice is an homage to Golden Age comics that no fan will want to miss."
