Lona Chang and Awesome Jones are good. They're to be married, Awesome has taken on the mantle of his father - even though the Guild says he's not allowed, and Lona herself has come into a power she's just beginning to learn about. But all that changes when a good friend and fellow superhero dies in Lona's arms. His death shakes Arc City to its core, but none are more affected than Lona herself. The hero's cryptic final words, the strange circumstances of his death, and an odd book with seemingly ...more

I really, truly, and deeply adore this book (as well as its predecessor Awesome Jones) and AshelyRose Sullivan’s writing style. Sullivan has this knack for creating a style all her own, by combining the elements of longer prose with the brevity and straight to the point style of comic books, illustrations included, which really resonates with me as a reader. For all intents, I do consider Lona Chang more of a comic book in a sense, but by writing it out in a longer form adds a certain amount of ...more

They continue to train and hone their unusual superpowers; Jones trains and works with the "sheets," superheroes who aren't officially "capes," or Guild sanctione ...more

Lona Chang is a secretary in a print shop, but she’s also a budding superhero and an amateur detective. Her partner – in love and and saving people – is Awesome Jones, also a superhero, but a normal guy, as well. Together they fight crime.

Okay, this book is more than that. In concept Lona Chang and it’s predecessor are comicbooks (Stan Lee insists that it should be one word, and I refuse to argue with him on a such a topic) in novel form, but they’re also a bit more complex than an actual comic,

Having read Awesome Jones: A Superhero Fairy Tale the week prior, I was fully prepared for the unique writing style of Sullivan. She chooses to write in short snappy paragraphs that are reminiscent of reading comic book panels, very fitting for a book about superheroes if you ask me.

I am also glad I chose to reschedule my tour, as though you could technically read Lona Chang: A Superhero Detective Story as a standalone, I felt I got more out of the plot having read the first in the series.
