Dexter Grant, the inspiration for the greatest superhero of all time, lives in reduced circumstances. Now he runs a pet store in Portland, Oregon, and privately calls himself a "Kitten Superhero" because he saves stray animals. He aspires to something greater, but his magic has been restricted-by the Fates. The Fates, three women who control the magical universe. Only they've lost their position, and they're on the run. They've turned to an old friend for help, but that friend is dead.
Travers Kinneally doesn't believe in magic. But ever since he picked up his son Kyle at his sister's house in Oregon, strange things have happened to him. First, his sister asked him to drive three strange women to Las Vegas. The women, whom he calls the Wyrd Sisters, seem to attract every weird thing to them. Kyle even calls them The Fates. The Fates need to find a detective named Zoe Sinclair. When Travers finds her, she's not what he expects. He thought he'd find an 80-year-old woman.
Three thousand years ago, he disrespected true love. So, as punishment, the Fates took away his good looks and forced him to unite 100 soul mates before he got his looks back. He just united his ninety-eighth and ninety-ninth couple. He has one left when he meets Ariel Summers.
Child psychologist Megan Kinneally answers an urgent message from her brother Travers: Come to Las Vegas immediately. He needs some kind of help.

Otherwise, the experience she just had on the interstate between Vegas and Los Angeles makes no sense.

Kristine Grayson's twisted worldview shows itself in these five stories of love, geeks, and happily ever after. In "The Charming Way", a nerdy Prince Charming falls in love with an Evil Stepmother. "Geeks Bearing Gifts" shows that even Greek Gods need computer dating services sometimes. "Name-calling", the most "normal" story in the audiobook, focuses on a woman who won't get married until she figures out what to do about her last name.
