Vada’s To-Do List:
– Turn 18 (check!)
– Register super name
– Order supersuit
– Attend superhero indoctrination
– Graduate high school
– Start kicking criminal tail
Vada Lawson can’t wait to be a superhero. Born into a family with special powers, she’s been training to fight criminals and villains her whole life. But her indoctrination into the underground super community is derailed when normals start breaking out in superpowers themselves.
Not trained to control their new abilities, the normals are frightened and vulnerable. Then their mutilated corpses begin turning up all over town. What the heck?
Somehow, with the help—and hindrance—of an annoying newly-minted super named Orion, Vada has to stop the chaos before it destroys her and everything she holds dear…and ruins her superhero debut.
No one ever said that being a superhero was easy…
I loved this book! Over the past year, I’ve been starting to read superhero comics. This is a great original story, with new superheroes.
I really liked the characters. They all had believable superpowers. One thing that I found hard to believe is that they didn’t recognize each other when they were out of their suits. I think they would have figured it out when they saw each other in school, but they haven’t yet.
This story kept reminding me of the movie The Incredibles. Veda’s family, with two boys and a girl and two superhero parents, were a lot like The Incredibles. That was one of my favourite movies when I was a kid, so I appreciated the similarities. Though it reminded me of that movie, this story is much more mature since there are young adults and adults in it, so they are not aimed at the same audience.
I really enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series!
