The fun continues in the second book in the H.E.R.O. series. The author has managed to convey a comic book feel to a novel. Actually, it’s better than a comic because the characters are so well developed and even nuanced, plus there is great dialogue and exposition.
Psystar is called upon to use her telepathic abilities to ferret out the location of a kidnapped child. However, when she gets to the location, she learns that the FBI had not even captured the suspect. Taking matters into her own hands, she captures the kidnapper, but gets badly wounded in the process. Psystar seems to have it the roughest of all the heroes. She’s besieged by the thoughts and views of everyone around her, she gets shot an awful lot and every major use of her abilities ends up with her unconscious.
Spartan, Rael and other supers are kidnapped by a group intent on auctioning them off to the highest bidder. They have a telepath who wipes their memories and instills in them a desire to please.
I thought it funny that Lance and Rael kept screwing up and calling Psystar by her real name, Stephanie.
I immediately purchased the 3rd book in the series.
