The author has successfully created an alternate existence where superhero teams regularly help out with natural disasters, super villains and the odd "cat up a tree" problem. Along with superpowers, students are taught super responsibility (without a direct, Stan Lee-ripoff, with super powers come super responsibility) and making sure that they will not be swayed by greed, power, fame...all the trappings of the super villain.
The characters are great, the plot twists enjoyable, and it really sets the stage for a series of books. This is a tremendous effort for a first novel, and the end product is well worth the read.
I recommend this book to anyone who reads comic books, enjoys superheroes, science fiction, fantasy or just wants a really good book to read. Pick this up!! You won't be disappointed!!
I don't even have words to say what a good read this was. I can't wait to be able to get the final copy. It started out like a superhero Harry Potter. A bunch of super kids all show up at this academy where are going to learn to be superheroes. Then it grewup and started to become more epic like. My take on this is the author bringing you into his world. In this book there are new superpowers and all different superheroes. It has a highly detailed science fiction feel to it.
Once the reader gets drawn in the book takes off. War breaks out all over the world and the heroes end up being in just about every country.
I've been reading comic books my whole life and I walked away from this book knowing a whole new superhero world. This book gave me the same feeling I got when I first started reading comic books. I definitely recommend this book to science fiction guys who like action and adventure. Plus the book totally sets up a second book <or more>.
OMNI is not just about action and displays of otherworldly abilities. The young heroes grow as friends and experience unique social situations that really make a person think about the difference of everyday happenings when super powers are involved. I now have new super heroes to add to my list of favorites and really look forward to reading the next book!
