Throughout the plot, you really are wondering along with the characters what is truly going on - and just when you think you have an idea, it turns out that you're wrong - and for good reason.
The author managed to think of several different "superpowers" that have a somewhat cohesive theme amongst them. They aren't superpowers in an X-men or Captain Planet sort of way, but in much more psychological ways that I found very enticing. He explores what having these powers has done to the characters, and how they have each used them to their own personal benefit (or demise). I enjoyed that aspect of the character depth and development very much, as it makes you actually care about them - well, at least the ones you are supposed to care for.
Laced throughout the book is quite a bit of good humor. There are some off-the-wall analogies and anecdotes which had me laughing out loud. Two characters provide some excellent comic relief, as well. The story and language is relevant to today, and as such I think it'd be a great book for a young adult to read.
Warning: This book is kind of terrifying to read on an airplane. Save it for after you land!
Sure, there are a few rough spots and repetitive parts here and there, but what book doesn't have that? The story is enjoyable, but its not super heady or mind-blowingly deep. But, sometimes that's exactly what you want on a nice relaxing summer day.
All in all, I was happy I spent the time learning Daniel Harvell's characters and story, and look forward to the sequel!
