I guess some people are detracting one or more stars because the accidentally-get-in-trouble-with-mobsters plot is a lot smaller than the typical plot in superhero novels. But if this is a negative - and it is, to an extent, as there isn't as much action as you will typically find in this type of book - than it is also a strong positive, because it allows the book to keep a (very) realistic feel. Moreover, the characters are extremely well drawn and compelling. For example, when Anonymous describes crawling from his hospital bed for water at age 13 because everyone has forgotten him, you will be drawn into his plight and care about him. With respect to action, while there are no epic superpowered battles resulting in destroyed buildings or the like, the teens do have to use their powers in tense to life or death situations, and these sequences are sufficiently well done that they may grip you despite what they lack.
Verdict: While there may not be enough action for fans of the traditional superpowers novel, those that like higher quality writing and have superpower novels as a guilty pleasure may find that Zeroes hits a sweet spot in between.
This start to the ZEROES series is based in Cambria, California and features six teens with unusual "superpowers." There is crowd control, anonymity, controlling technology, and more.
The first half (at least) of the book was low-key, introducing readers to the "ZEROES" and to their powers. It was a bit hard to keep track of the characters who have a real name and sometimes more than one superpower name. And it was a bit boring.
The last part of the book amped up and I enjoyed it much more. I probably would have rated this 3 1/2 stars if I could have.
I enjoyed it enough that I'm going to finish the series, reading SWARM next and finishing the trilogy with NEXUS.
