2013’s Velveteen vs. the Multiverse is the second volume in Seanan McGuire’s Velveteen vs. series.
Velma “Velveteen” Martinez seeks refuge from her former crew, the Super Patriots, America’s paramount super-franchise. She moves to Oregon, the only state that hasn’t contracted with the franchise. She’s free to build a new life, with a new apartment, new adventures, and a new boyfriend. The Super Patriots’ predatory ways are behind her.
Just kidding. Cutting ties with the Super Patriots is an affront Marketing will never forgive. Harassment ensues.
