Publication date: March 14, 2017
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance

 Everyone wants justice.
That’s what Assistant DA, Lulu Lightly, tells me.
“Cathedral City needs you to set things right,” she says. “To rid this place of corruption once and for all.”
I’d like to rid Lulu Lightly of her clothes. And maybe her moral superiority. But mostly her clothes.
“I want you to fight the good fight with me,” she says.
Hell, yeah. I’m always up for a fight.
“We should stand up and be the voice of the people,” she says.
Sure, I hear voices. Sometimes I even listen to them.
“Figure out what’s good for the City and put it first,” she says.
Oh, honey… what’s good for the City is bad for the people. Trust me, I know. I’m Case Reider—insane Alpha, nefarious inventor, and I understand this town better than anyone.
Cathedral City needs me all right. Just not the way you think.
I’m not the justice you’re looking for, Lulu Lightly.
I’m still the same villain you left behind.
Only now… there’s something very, very wrong with me.

I am one of those girls that fell in love with Superman, Batman, Ironman, etc., etc.  I love how they are a combination of good and evil.  Well, Superman is all good, but you know what I mean.  Their heart is virtuous, but their heads get confused sometimes so they deal with the internal struggle of how to deal with the evil around them and how to protect who and what they love.  If you are like me when it comes to superheroes/supervillains, JA Huss’ Super Alpha series is for you. 

Anarchy Missing-A Supervillain Romance is the second book in this series.  I highly recommend that you read Anarchy Found first because it has important background information that explains some of the events in Anarchy Missing

Anarchy Missing takes us back to the virtual reality world of Cathedral City.  The world of our super heroes is largely controlled by evil.  At this point, it isn’t really clear who is pulling the evil puppet strings.  This book is a great continuation of our heroes’ story with Case the primary focus and how Blue Corp continues to wreak havoc on his life and the general population of Cathedral City. 

LuLu Lightly (don’t you love her name) is a new addition to the players.  She is Case’s first love and comes back to Cathedral City as the new Assistant DA.  I guess this is a super villain, second chance romance—no wonder I love it so much.  Right from the start Case remembers all his feelings for LuLu and she is feeling a lot of the same.

The core team is still together, Case, Linc, Thomas, Molly, and Sheila working to fight corruption and getting caught in the middle of all the mayhem.  Case, Linc, and Thomas are metahumans (borrowing a DC Comic term).  They are the products of experiments in their youth, and these men continue to enhance their gifts with Sheila’s help.  Sheila is a super, super computer with artificial intelligence.  I love her and her motherly love for the men in her charge.

Anarchy Missing is told from the dual points of view of Case and LuLu.  They are both trying to resolve what is happening in the City.  As the events unfold, we experience the romance, the betrayals, the confusions, and the fights.  HOLY bits and bytes Sheila, I get a feeling of excitement rolling in my stomach as the anxiety builds to the climax.  It’s advised that you start this book when you have some uninterrupted time because once you start, you won’t be able to put it down. 

JA Huss does an excellent job creating a parallel universe with characters and events that I can see vividly as I read.  Julie continues to amaze me with her enviable storytelling skills that bring the story to life.  No one can ever say she creates cookie cover books or characters.  Every story is different and captivating.

The most exciting part of Anarchy Missing, as if the super romance, hot antiheroes, superior technology, and a grand fight isn’t enough, there will be another book in the series.  I am getting very attached to these characters and can’t wait to see what happens next.  If you are like me and love dropping into a futuristic virtual world, you must read this book.  It is well worth your time.


What?” I ask. “What is it, Randy? Tell me what’s going on.”
He takes one last photo out of the folder and pushes it towards me. “You’re here because of him.”
I almost stop breathing.
Case Reider.
The one boy I desperately didn’t want to leave behind when my father moved us out to Wolf Valley seven years ago.
“Yes,” I whisper. “I know him.”
“I know you know him,” Randy says softly. He places a hand on mine just as Lisa appears with another cup of coffee.
I take it from her, muttering some thanks, and then take a long, long sip before coming up for air and letting it out in a sigh.
“He was your escort for the Debutante Ball.”
“How do you know that?” I ask.
“I was there that night.” He smiles sheepishly. “Someone else’s date, obviously. I saw you with him.”
“I haven’t seen him in forever.”
Randy waves a hand in the air. “Doesn’t matter. We’re not after him.”
I feel so relieved.
“Not yet.”
My relief disappears.
“We know for a fact that Lincoln Wade is a black-hat hacker, Lulu. And Detective Molly Masters has been dating him since she came to town. But the real problem is… Lincoln Wade and Case Reider have been best friends since childhood. Do you remember those two boys who went missing twenty years ago, without a trace, then reappeared several years later with no explanation?”
“Oh, Jesus.”
“Yup,” Randy says. “Those two boys were Case and Lincoln. We think Brooks was involved somehow, but we’re not sure where they intersect. They are close now, at any rate. Lulu,” Randy says, leaning across his desk to take both my hands in his. “We need Case Reider to get to Lincoln Wade and Molly Masters, and we need you to get him for us.”
