Bones of the Past

Bones of the Past by Drew Hayes

Villains' Code book 2. spoilers for the first ahead.

Life in the world of a supervillain. . . opening with an alien invasion, and Tori and her friends watching from their apartment while Ivan watches from the apartment of his friend Wade, as if they were not the villains Hephaestus, Bahamut, Fornax, and Doctor Mechanical. Plus Tori's friend Chloe, who's neither a villain nor a hero, though super.

It is a long, many threaded plot. The launch of a new superhero team to carry on a legacy, Tori kidnapped in her civilian identity, the guild moving back into retribution, another alien invasion, intra-hero rivalries and friendships, Tori using some unwanted fame, a new villain base, and more.
