Reviews

"Sarah Kuhn creates characters you want to befriend, worlds you want to live in, and situations you can't begin to imagine. Heroine Complex is at once fiendishly snarky yet colossally big-hearted." --Javier Grillo-Marxuach, writer and producer for Lost, creator of The Middleman

"Smart, sexy, and filled with beautifully fleshed-out/kick-ass women, Heroine Complex is the kind of read that sticks in your brain like a fanged cupcake.... I adored it." --Amber Benson, author of The Witches of Echo Park

"The superheroine we've been waiting for; the urban fantasy we deserve. Sarah Kuhn is the total package: comedy, tragedy, and sincerity. Grab your cape. We're saving the city."
--Seanan McGuire, New York Times-bestselling author of the October Daye series

"Every page of Sarah Kuhn's novel delighted me immensely.... Kuhn's writing is bouncy and engaging, and Evie is very clearly spun into a captivating character. I also have to give Kuhn props for balancing romance and humour and drama, and making me wish that Heroine Complex would go on just a little bit longer." --Book Riot

"Romance, adventure, kick-butt action sequences, and killer cupcakes combine to make this a great example of how weird and wonderful urban fantasy can be in the right hands." --B&N Sci-fi & Fantasy Blog

"Onomatopoeias? Check. Snarkiness? Check. Kick-ass Asian-American superwomen saving San Francisco from demon-possessed cupcakes? Check and check, Kuhn's Heroine Complex is a ridiculously fun read." --RT Reviews (top pick)

"Sarah Kuhn's Heroine Complex is a delight." --Leigh Bardugo, New York Times-bestselling author of Crooked Kingdom

"Love the humor and wacky hijinks, along with character development.... This is everything I've ever wanted in a book!" --Dreaming of Cats
