Not only was I wrong, but this book had more bad cliches, telegraphed the twists (as well as future conflicts) more blatantly, contradicted itself several times and had several minor plot holes.
I think I'm done with this series.
<MILD SPOLIER ALERT>
So we are to believe that a "government" agency (presumably US) takes
hostile acts towards the hero, and he does NOT use his powers in full to
Worse, we are asked to believe that this "rogue" agency attacks and tries
to kill a large number of superpowered children, many of whom have super-powered
After the attack is foiled all of these Superheroes do ... NOTHING ?!
Even if we are to believe that due to ethical reasons they decide not to
retaliate by force (and they could do it easily, and in ways that can't be
detected and proven), Wouldn't a super-powered group of Teenagers who were attacked,
or their parents, use their powers to expose the "rouge" agency?
They don't even go on strike in offering super-powered services to the world
until the people responsible for the attack are stopped from any further action?
I am willing to suspend disbelief that Super Heroes (and Villains) exist,
but to believe they are all wimps?! even in the face of assassination attempts
on their kids?
This story surprised me quite a bit. The first one was not bad, but always felt like some of the plot was forced. This time Kevin Hardman didn't force the storyline and instead wrote a good super hero action/mystery with mostly believable characters. Many of the characters being introduced were well thought out and the solutions to the problems weren't simply the "bring a bigger hammer" types.
My only real complaint would be that the story does end up a bit emotionless. Not that it doesn't bring out emotions, but that the romantic subplots and building of friendships quickly ended up swept away by the latest "the world is about to end" crisis that forms the backbone of the book. This left me wishing I could see a bit more of certain characters who didn't get enough page time.
Still a solid story.
Three supporting characters return, and a half dozen more are introduced. Yet none of them get remotely enough time or characterization to be engaging. The evil mastermind is the only character to evoke strong responses (of the "teleport him into the sun already" kind).
The ending is fast, flat, and only partial. The lesser villains are defeated but the evil mastermind walks away untouched, and the girl is not rescued. Clearly the author is setting up a sequel, but I am not sure I care enough to read it. This volume was simply too disappointing.
Characterization aside the rest of the story was very good and I enjoyed reading it.
A minor note... It's clear that the author is fairly new to the writing game, but he showed noticeable growth just from the first book. I'm sure that as he gains experience and confidence in his gifts, that we will witness ever more growth in characterization and plot development. As it is, these are light, easy reads that grabbed me from the start.
