The box also contains a buglike alien called a Mogriss that is as strong as the Kurcet. The heroes cannot capture it, and the bug heads directly to Metrocity Jail, where it takes one of the captive Kurcet and leaves. During the chaos and destruction, Carey, the fire elemental escapes.
Lady Nocturne also escapes and continues her plans to prevent humans from researching supers. In light of the events that happened with Carey, General Angelich and Ironsite Security, her goals seem much more reasonable.
I found it odd that the crime boss Nightmonger, was barely in the book which bears his name.
That's not to say its great. Many of the flaws remain, and Kevin's inability to focus on a single character means that the story is still disjointed. He also remains weak in his character development, although I have to admit he did more character development (particularly with Diva and Psystar) than he has in some time.
If you have enjoyed the previous books, this is likely to be very popular, it has a lot of good ideas and despite the fact that Kevin still has far too many different storylines going, the overall tale is decent. However, if you try to pick this book without reading previous volumes you will be completely confused. This story builds on previous ones, so its assumed you know the characters and why several of them act the way they do (usually quit morocically, but they are super-heroes, no one expects real thoughts from them.)
Fun, but lacking in the special spark.
