Also, I'm also perturbed by the decision of his father not being a part of his life. I understand that he had another kid with his actual wife and that with their rocky relationship he needed to be there for his kid, but the same can be said about our MC. It makes no sense why he couldn't of stayed in touch and got to know his son and eventually introduce him to his half-brother.
I do look forward to see how our MC and his father's relationship develop and what other sort of shenanigans he gets into. Though, I was severely disappointed with how the group of villains were introduced and nothing actually major happened with them.
I loved Jim's voice throughout the piece; he comes across as very human in spite of all the powers he has and all the training his grandfather has given him. He and the other characters bring the story to life, and it's rather larger than life in some ways, just like a superhero comic might be.
If you enjoy comics and superheroes, I highly recommend this story.
On the downside, the world building is mediocre and fairly unbelievable, at least to me. Kind of comic bookish. Typical comic book style villains for example. Also, the author obviously is pretty ignorant about science. He tries to explain how powers work or how people use their powers and makes some really egregious errors with regard to science. For example he talks about how super speed can kind of mimic super strength. A really fast hit will act like a really strong hit, which is essentially true. Except, it ignores physics 101 and the idea of every action having an equal and opposite reaction. if the person doing the hitting didn't have super strength/durability a hit like that would pulp their arm. This is just one example of the many gross misunderstandings of science throughout the book.
But, stock up on "suspend disbelief" buttons and the books are a fun read.
Full of action and snarky fun behavior, this was a really good book! The characters were very well-depicted and the story line was fast-moving and exciting. In the audiobook, the narrator (Mikael Naramore) was one of the best! He did the voices to perfection, his intonation immediately producing an image in the listener’s mind and an appropriate visceral response to whatever happened. In simpler terms, he made it real as if the reader were right in the middle of the action. It definitely enhanced the story! I highly recommend this well-written book, and most especially the audiobook version if you have the opportunity! Outstanding performance!

To be a teenager is bad enough, but to have super abilities, made life a very difficult time, especially when someone else was out to get you.
Although, some would say this is a teenage saga, I believe a lot of adults that are attracted to the supernatural storyline will love this series.
Having listened to the audiobooks for this series, I found the narrator's enhancement of the story, by use of various vocalizations for different characters adding that extra dimension to an otherwise epic story.
