Book Summary: Forget "truth, justice, and the American way." The Supers of Mesopolopolis have been relocated into "herotowns" ever since a superhuman terrorist unleashed nuclear devastation. But ghetto life hasn't stopped Gayle Fellman, aka Gal Friday, from trying to be a hero. After all, someone has to fight for what's right, even if the Normals are too prejudiced to tell friend from foe. Of course, Gayle's powers only work one day per week, and her team consists of an eccentric inventor, his vain vampire fiancée, and a brawler with a dark family secret. But this ragtag band soon stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens all humanity, Normals and Supers alike….

Book Description: Forget "truth, justice, and the American way." After a superhuman terrorist named Twister unleashed nuclear devastation upon the State, anyone with a cape and tights was forcibly relocated to the ghettos of "Herotown"…even those like Gayle Fellman, aka Gal Friday, whose super powers only work one day a week. Barred from "normal" society, Gayle and her friends eke out a living under the watchful eye of an increasingly totalitarian government afraid of their abilities, yet desperate for their use in defending humanity.

Educated in two worlds, rejected by both, Gayle Fellman finally finds a case that could jumpstart the career of her team, the Friday Knights, as "real superheroes." But as Gayle gathers an eccentric inventor who dreams of a better world, his image-obsessed vampire fiancée, the nephew of Twister himself, and a detective whose affections for Gayle mask a dark secret, the team's seemingly inconsequential first mission opens the door to an international conspiracy, one that will change the very course of humanity for "Normals" and Superhumans alike…

The Fragile Light is the first book in the Herotown trilogy by David Nurenberg.
