“Arcadia: The Wayward Hero” Launches!

Congratulations to Kristina Garlick on the launch of her new book, Arcadia: The Wayward Hero. Available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon.

51jvarq-mwlImagine if a superhero fails to save a city and the villains win. With a city in ruins and no hope in sight, the United States Government has no choice but to surrender to the terrorists. Suddenly, the world becomes a darker, deadlier place for anyone who opposes Lord Boundary and his crew.

Arcadia Austin isn’t doing so well under the new regime but she has fared better than most ex-heroes. With the ability to blend in, Arcadia has the rare opportunity to start over, or in her case, drink her life away. However, given the chance to potentially beat the bad guys, will Arcadia choose to stay hidden or don her old superhero uniform?

We wish Kristina great success with her new book.
