The Supervillain and Me
(Morriston Superheroes #1)
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: July 10th 2018
Genres: Romance, Science Fiction, Superheroes, Young Adult
As witty as it is heartpounding, this fresh take on the beloved superhero genre is all about finding your own way to shine even when it seems everyone else around you is, well… super.
Never trust a guy in spandex.
In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees―they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.
That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.
After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Supervillain and Me is a hilarious, sweet, and action-packed novel by debut author Danielle Banas that proves no one is perfect, not even superheroes.
Addictively Witty and Marvelously Entertaining Superhero Adventure
The Supervillain and Me was an addictively witty and marvelously entertaining story. I zoomed through page after page and had such a blast reading this novel.
Honestly, I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I do. It’s fast-paced, comedic and an awesomely fun read. I thought the writing was superb and engaging. The plot was intriguing, well-developed and filled with dazzling action scenes. The characters were really interesting, quirky, and amusing. I genuinely really liked them all. Abby was a great heroine in her own ways. Connor was brave and protective. Abby’s best friend, Sarah was spunky and hilarious. Rylan was charming and funny. Isaac was annoyingly really good at being himself. And Hunter was just so silly and I totally adored his odd, but fun personalilty. Some parts were predictable, but I still thought the mystery part was really exciting. There were even a few nice surprises that totally caught me off guard. I also really loved the sweet romance, amazing friendships, and heartfelt moments sprinkled throughout the story. This was seriously a fun and absolutely delightful novel that left me wanting more.
Even though I knew the true identity of Iron Phantom pretty early in the story, I still had fun anticipating when and how Abby would find out. It was really entertaining to see her piece together the clues. I probably pictured a million different ways for her to figure who Iron Phantom was, but I didn’t expect it at all when it finally happened. I can’t really give too many details and ruin the excitement for you, but I thought the way Abby found out was done really well. And since the premise hinted at a romance between these two, I guess it’s safe to say that I totally ship Iron Phantom and Abby.
If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know I’m a big romance nerd so of course it was the main reason why I wanted to read this book. I thought the budding romance was spine-tinglingly awesome! It was charming, adorable, and just so darn cute. Iron Phantom and Abby shared many incredibly swoontastic moments and I really couldn’t get enough. Their chemistry was amazing and I loved all their snarky and playful bantering.
This book is one of my favorite reads this summer. Danielle Banas delivered an amazingly entertaining superhero story with plenty of humor, fantastic action scenes, exciting mysteries, adorably cute romance, and sweet moments that touch the heart. I loved the characters, the storyline, the swoony kisses, and the life lessons weaved throughout the book. I absolutely cannot wait to read more from this series and see what happens next. Maybe the next one will be about Sarah and a certain superhero with fins. Hopefully… don’t mind me, just wishful thinking.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher, author and Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
