Here’s the capsule description:
The East End Irregulars are taking a bite out of the Pittsburgh underworld. Teen vigilantes Torrent and the Mysterious X have already walloped werecats and beaten the mad gasser of Panther Hollow. Now they’re finally getting the attention they deserve: from the press, the police, and the worst lowlifes the city has to offer. With Corona’s pyrokinetic firepower added to the team, they’re ready to take on all challengers.
Or are they?
Before the Irregulars can claim their title as the Burgh’s undisputed champions, they must run a gauntlet of foes including the Flying Skeletons, the satanic Mr. Gentry, and the assembled might of the Global Parahuman Revolutionary Army. And the city’s other superheroes may have something to say about it, too.
The sequel to 2014’s Young Adult superhero adventure After Dark, The Dismal Tide is the second novel in the East End Irregulars series.
And here’s a sampling of some of the illustrations you’ll see in the book!
