Parker Fiorenza always wanted to be a superhero. When a supervillain implanted new memories and skills into her brain, she thought this could be her chance. Instead she's dealing with an equal mix of boredom and poorly-timed blackouts. Just as she's about to hang up her mask, she's thrust into being the only person who can stop a sinister plot by a retired super-spy. She might be a hero whether she wants to or not.

Jamie Hattori can't get a break. As the superhero Kensei, she defeated the goddess Eris and figured her life could just get back to normal. Or, at least, as normal as things can be when you fight crime and can talk to the spirit world. But now her girlfriend is flaking out on her, her parents have separated, and a World War Two supervillain has come back from the dead with plots to kill Jamie.

As if that wasn't bad enough, she has to deal with two of her least favorite people: her grandparents.

It's mouthy and queer and funny, and has one of my all time favorite ends to a fight with a super villain.

Garrett Croker on Garrett's Blog wrote:

The world feels bigger. The stakes feel higher. The mysteries that are isolated to this book build and resolve in satisfying ways. The mysteries that belong to the series also grow enough to keep you hooked into the next book without revealing so much as to draw attention away from the more pressing narrative.

Jamie Hattori's alter ego, the masked hero Kensei, has been doing pretty well protecting her neighborhood from petty villains with her martial arts skills, her father's katana, and a little help from the local spirits. But things get rough when the spirits start flaking out, the Goddess of Discord throws a few cursed apples, and an online gossip site sics an angry football player on her. Then there's her slipping grades, the vampire owls, and the cute roller derby chick looking for romance. And even worse, Jamie's hero-hating mom is starting to get suspicious. Can Jamie defeat her mysterious nemesis without tearing her family apart? And more importantly, will she score her first kiss?

When you get down to brass tacks with Kensei, though, it's a slim, fast, tightly-paced, action-packed superhero adventure filled with distinct, believable characters [...]. From the first page, Kensei really kicks, opening up and explaining its world as it goes without ever slowing down the action too much, drawing its conflict from the natural insecurities of its people rather than the needs of its plot, and advancing an intriguing mystery all the while.

Jamie is multi-faceted: she’s gay, she’s biracial, she’s a Buddhist, she’s in high school; she is hiding things from her mom, her dad, her classmates, her potential girlfriend; she can talk to the spirits of cars and buildings and light bulbs. She has to deal with how these things affect other parts of her life. Zimmerman navigates these muddy waters expertly.
