The first thing I noted is that this seems to be the first in the "Kid Sensation" series, but the second in the series as a whole. I was very confused until I actually started reading. The descriptions of the books imply a "Young Indiana Jones" style prequel series, but that isn't the case at all. Read them in publication order if you want to understand the chronology.
As for this story as a standalone: It does a decent job of explaining the events of the first book. This makes you want to read the rest of the series, but keeps you following along the plot. Because the plot of the first book is vital to the plot of this book.
In a story that felt ripped from the Dwayne McDuffie playbook (a very good thing for a superhero story) we get to see a young superhero plan and execute a rescue mission to save a girl who helped him in a previous adventure. He must do so, however, without using all of his powers, because he's the only one in the world with that unique combination of abilities and could be identified by them.
I liked the plot, and the overall story, but it felt rushed. What could have been an entire 20 chapter book was spit out in about 3. The entire thing felt like a first draft; with exposition handed to the reader, instead of woven carefully in; the entire plot spilled on the page as fast as possible, instead of taking its time and immersing us; and one of the main characters barely doing anything, even though he's painted as vital to the mission.
I did like the overall story, and the characters were interesting enough to pull me through. I wanted to care about these people and their adventures. I will be picking up "Sensation" at some point and reviewing that before I lay final judgement on the author. It is entirely possible that this story *was* rushed to publication on the success of the first book, which would lay blame squarely on the publisher and not the author.
If you're into superhero stories this is an okay read for $0.99. Otherwise, I'd suggest skipping it.
But the author hasn't allowed that to happen. Instead he creates problems that have to be solved with thought and cleverness. Here Kid Sensation tries to fulfill the promise he made in Mutation to rescue and free the precognitive girl who had assisted in an attack on him to protect her family. He's helped by his friends and while the book here is far too short, it displays the growth of the characters.
Great fun and makes me hope for the next book in the series.

Ridiculous. I enjoyed the first 2 books in this but the author's lost his mind if he thinks...Read more
