A teenage girl is transformed into a reluctant superhero and must balance her old life with the dark secret of who she has become.
Prima ballerina Anthem Fleet is closely guarded by her parents in their penthouse apartment. But when she meets the handsome Gavin at a party on the wrong side of town, she is immediately drawn into his dangerous world. Then, in a tragic accident, Anthem falls to her death. She awakes in an underground lab, with a bionic heart ticking in her chest. As she navigates her new life, she uncovers the sinister truth behind those she trusted the most, and the chilling secret of her family lineage…and her duty to uphold it.
The Dark Knight meets Cinder in this gripping and cinematic story of heartbreak and revenge. From Alloy Entertainment, this inventive new superhero story is sure to captivate any reader.
This sounds so amazing. Superheroes? The Dark Knight meets Cinder? A BIONIC HEART?! Neeed! It was on Edelweiss a few days ago, but it looks like it's been deleted now, so I am upset. Also, in case you needed more awesomeness to have you pining for this book, the initial blurb was this:
A wealthy ballerina living in a heightened, Gotham-like version of Chicago, has her heart broken - literally - and receives a dangerous bionic heart, transforming her into a superhero.
A GOTHAM-LIKE VERSION OF CHICAGO, PEOPLE. *flails*
