Some Are Born To Adventure, Some Go Seeking Adventure,
And Some Have Adventure Thrust Upon Them

Meet Iris Winterbek, who is definitely one of the latter.

Iris is not always spunky. Sometimes her only plan is to go along for the ride. Sometimes all she wants is to sit back and enjoy a nice caramel macchiato. But when an adventure drops into her lap, she finds the spirit she needs to create chaos or save the day.

Iris Incensed

Our heroine is off on her first adventure, a European romp full of oddball characters, unsettling events, and not nearly enough caramel macchiatos. When danger comes at her from all sides, Iris must dig deep to find her inner action hero.
