The fourth book in the smart, snarky, and action-packed Heroine series follows Evie Tanaka, Aveda Jupiter, and Bea Tanaka as they combat a new supernatural threat.
Everything in Evie Tanaka's life is finally perfect. As a badass superheroine, she defends San Francisco from demon invasion on the regular. Her relationships with superhero partner Aveda Jupiter, little sister Bea, and hot, half-demon husband Nate have never been stronger. Maybe it's possible for a grad school dropout turned put-upon personal assistant turned superhero to have it all?
As if things can't get any better, Evie learns she's pregnant. She's overjoyed, but also worried about whether she's cut out for motherhood. Before she can dwell on her dilemma too much, a women's college reports a string of mysterious "hauntings," and Evie and Aveda are called in to investigate. When the hauntings turn deadly, they decide to move into the dorms full-time, going undercover as grad students.
As she lives out a bizarre version of her grad school life, Evie can't help but wonder about the road not taken: what would her life be like if she'd stayed here instead of pursuing superheroing with Aveda?

Praise for the Heroine novels
"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
"Sarah Kuhn’s Heroine Complex is a delight." —Leigh Bardugo, New York Times-bestselling author of Ninth House
"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
"Kuhn imbues her books simultaneously with great humor and real, raw emotion.... And then she amps it all up with superpowers, demonic forces, and rampaging architectural features." —Cass Morris, author of From Unseen Fire
"Mixing fun superhero shenanigans with great teamwork and a well-developed (and hot) romance, Heroine Worship is a worthy sequel to one of my favorite books from last year." —Kirkus Reviews
"Decisively entertaining and deceptively complex.... Poignant scenes are interspersed with the high jinks fans of the series have come to expect, making this a hugely fun, yet intensely thoughtful take on superheroics and new adulthood." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Annie’s struggles to merge her kick-ass Aveda persona with her everyday Annie Chang tendencies can be hilariously slapstick, while her emotional growth provides its own tearjerker moments." —Library Journal
"An absolute blast. Aveda, Evie, & co. continue grow and develop while remaining San Francisco's premiere superlady team, and it's a ton of fun to see all of the characters we've come to know and adore from Bea's perspective." —BookRiot
"When it comes to superhero novels, Heroine's Journey might not be what you're expecting, but it's certainly what we might need these days. Heroine's Journey is probably the best so far, yours truly is excited to see where everyone goes next." —Culturess
