Xanzeer: Not Your Mother’s Superhero by Marja Healy

Having lost the love of her life, nineteen year old Charlize Sweet has given up on guys forever. Then she meets Xanzeer.

Not your mother’s superhero, Charlize is seriously crushing on this hotter than fire bad boy. Nowhere near being human, he’s also a known hit man who seems to detest her. To make matters worse, other dark forces show up with the appearance of his evil Ex.

Soon caught in the crossfire of this unholy threesome, enter Charlize’s reliable but jealous detective friend, Jesse. Joining forces with Xanzeer’s evil Ex to stop The Kiss, Charlize gets trapped in a fiery netherworld where wishes end and reality begins. The only thing that can possibly save her? The mystical power within herself she never knew she had.

A head reeling romance, the Xanzeer series perfectly captures the quandary of a normal girl trapped in an upended world of intrigue and non stop action with a hotter than fire superhero.

An urban fanstasy romance, Xanzeer has mild language and mild sexual situations. Recommended for readers Grade 9 and up. Marja had once been nominated for the Pushcart Prize in long fiction.
