Punctuated and climaxed by episodes of raw emotion and brutal violence, this sequel to Subject Seven (2011) pits a motley quintet of ordinary teens who share their genetically altered bodies Jekyll/Hyde-style with bad-tempered superwarriors against a squad of second-gen counterparts produced by the same mad scientist. Readers unfamiliar with the previous volume will be bewildered by both the premise, which the author is slow to explain, and the sizable cast, whose mutable members not only all serve as point-of-view characters in a round robin of very short chapters but also change names as their alter egos switch back and forth. Plenty of fury, fighting, and adolescent libido on display. Grades 6-9. --John Peters
