Constance Verity - soon to be played on the big screen by Crazy Rich Asians superstar Awkwafina! - is still saving the universe, one crisis at a time - but now the rules have changed.
Constance Verity is still saving the universe, one crisis at a time, but the rules have changed.
She's managed to build a quiet life between feats of improbable heroism, until the line between adventure and ordinary begins to blur and Connie discovers that preventing her two very different worlds from colliding might be beyond even her.
It's hard enough to maintain a relationship without having to find time to save the world, but when her (sort of) ex-boyfriend, the son of one of her top ten arch-enemies, comes to her for help, the timing couldn't be worse.
But when malicious superbrains and sinister ocean gods join an entirely unreasonable number of assassins, Connie might finally be in over her head - and the curse of steadily worsening bad luck isn't helping much.
With her history of saving the world, over and over, it should be just another day in Connie's life - shouldn't it?
Genuinely likeable characters and imaginative set pieces drive the breathless narrative all the way to a fitting finale. Readers who like a lot of sass with their derring-do will find much to love here - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY on CONSTANCE VERITY SAVES THE WORLD
