Theatre of Heels
Villains Make the Best Heroes
Erica Belfry always wanted to be a superhero. What she didn’t want was to drive a supervillain’s getaway car as her idol, the cybernetic Sleek, chased her while a Shakespeare-quoting bad guy fired lightning bolts at their pursuer. Life can get complicated when you try to follow your dreams.
After a botched attempt at heroics, Erica inadvertently finds herself on the wrong side of the law as a supervillain. To avoid the ensuing media frenzy, Erica adopts a new identity as Princess Crash, and partners herself with Weatherman, a crotchety thespian with storm powers. Now she’s evading super-powered attacks, her police officer brother, and the jealous wrath of her former idol, Sleek, whose superhero boyfriend Erica has a crush on. However, none of this can prepare her for the terrible secret that lurks behind the superhero world’s veil of mystery. Erica is going to learn the hard way that there isn’t any mercy for those who don’t play their parts in the Theatre of Heels.
