Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6–9—It has been 10 years since all the adult superhumans have been stripped of their powers, but their children have inherited superpowers too, and it's their turn to fight the supervillains. Danny is still reeling from the loss of his arm and his superpowers and the reality that for years, a misguided shape-shifting superhuman impersonated his father. Colin is imbued with acute hearing, sight, and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. His cousin, Renata, has the ability to change form. After their identities are leaked to the press, they are forced to hide out in a secret location where new superhumans are trained. Unbeknownst to them, their old enemy Dioxin, long thought dead, has joined forces with a powerful cult leader bent on destroying them all. He's using Dioxin's desire for revenge to help him discredit, kill, and divide them. They suspect there's a traitor in their midst but it isn't until their safe house is attacked that they discover who it is. This fast-paced and humorous science- fiction adventure may not be wholly original, but, with its part superhero, part James Bond characters, teens, particularly fans of graphic novels and Anthony Horowitz's books, won't mind. They will eagerly await the next entry in the series.—Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trenton

Ah, the superhumans are back and the action picks up where the first book leaves off. This is a really good read. Colin and his friends must continue their fight against Cross. This has a lost of suspense and a lot of action. The characters developed and one has to come to terms with a disability that he suffered in the first book. Colin also discovers that he has some hidden powers. I have to say, the powers he gets are fantastic!

Not only does Colin and Co. have to face off against an old enemy, one of his friends, someone that he trusts with his life is betraying him and the rest of the superhumans. Not only does Colin have to deal with all of this, but there seems to be a cult that wants him and the rest of the superhumans to join it. But that's not all Colin has to deal with. At the end of the book, he has to make a choice that has no winning side. No matter what he picks, it has horrible consequences. A choice that will destroy him.

Over all I really liked this book. I just had one small problem with it. Towards the end of the book, the cult isn't mentioned all that much. I'm sure they'll come up in the third book. I just wanted more of this cult.

This is a really good series and I highly suggest you read it. This is a series you have to read in order.

This is the second part of what i believe is a great fiction-action book. I read the first book from a friend, read it in 2 days, decided to buy this one, and read it in two days, they were both great books. I can't wait for the third!!!

Seriously, I can't get enough of these books.
Although the twist in this one was surprisingly obvious... to me, anyways. Have fun figuring it out!

Arrived quick and as expected. The book series was read by all my teenaged boys who really enjoyed it. Fast paced adventure.
