Seven years after the Judgment virus, also known as the EVO virus, infected the planet, a portion of the Earth's population of humans has died while another portion received powers and abilities. Superhumans now walk the Earth. Some use their abilities for good, taking up the mantle of heroes, while others become villains. The rest join and form superhuman military units within their respective countries, building toward another possible Cold War.
Sophia Dennison, the first and most powerful superhuman on the planet, who inadvertently changed the world, is unable to fit in with the race she was once a part of and unwilling to embrace the race she created. Living a life of semi-isolation, she uses her power and abilities to help people as she sees fit, taking no mantle. However, a new threat to the planet will force her toconfront not only several spectrums of her past but ultimately her destiny.

THE WHOLE STORY AS I HEARD BOOK ONE I HAD TO GET BOOK 2 TO LISTEN TO
THE CHARACTERS ARE IN DEPTH AND COME TO LIFE THEY ONLY WOULD BE IN YOUR IMAGINATION IF YOU HAD PRINT
NO THIS BOOK IS LONG SO NO IT TOOK LISTENING TO IT AT WORK AND HOME AND ANY WERE ELSE I WENT. IT TOOK NEARLY 6 DAYS TO LISTEN TO
BOOK ONE WAS FANTASTIC BOOK 2 IS EVEN BETTER I HOPE THERE IS A THREE
"Love this feminist perspective of a superhero"
The first book was ok as it had a lot of cliches in the plot and dialogue. I still enjoyed it and was hoping the second book would cover new ground and it did. The narrator was very good and the story was entertaining and absorbing. I look forward to a third book.
"Still a Good Series"
I love the premise in this series and especially love the main character, who is equal parts strong, clever, and sassy. The story got off the rails a few times with the introduction of a great deal more characters. However, by the end it all wrapped up nicely and I'll be looking forward to book 3.
"best in class"
this is a excellent series. great character development and story structure. the dbz reference was priceless. thank you to the author and performance. excellent.
"Not recommeded to buy."
There were too many language glitches in the book. The word exponential is used wrong with many other words.
Not give his characters infinite power abilities.
Carla Mercer-Meyer did fine with the material she had.
Very little I had to force myself to finish it.
He seriously needs to have someone proofread his work. Also I am not pleased with this limited form of review. It's difficult to express yourself in less than 15 words. Obviously you don't want to have any bad reviews on your site.
"Loved it, upgrade from #1"
The reader did a great job, the story was engaging, some of the characters had depth and the main star (Sophia) had some very real emotional logic.
SHE did well in mixing her inflections and "voices" between the characters to pull it off well. Sometimes the editing forced her sentances to almost overlap. Not so bad in book #2, but #1 it was noticable.
The return of #3 was like "Whhaaaa"!
If you do a #3, please stop elevating the characters (Sophia and #3) power without end. I get it that they get stronger to avoid being hurt the same way twice, but even physics has it's limits when you have a pissed off woman destroying moons, basking in Mercury-distance sunlight and eating nukes.
"love the series"
strong female God fearing character helping the world get back on the right path. Then you went and threw in super powers and anime references. Now we more then cool I'm buying the entire series and waiting for more.
"Awesome superhero story"
featuring a black woman who is the first but not the last superhero to protect the earth
The characters were as fascinating as the plot. I hope this is only the beginning of a great series. Excellent sci-fi. The author and reader did a wonderful job bringing the story to life.
"I loved it. the narrator was excellent ."
I really hope that they make this into a movie. the narrator was excellent I absolutely loved her work
The very Best Audiobook I've ever listened to Kipjo Ewers did an amazing job painting such vivid pictures with the whole flow of the story. And I think I'm in love with the narrator's voice. Carla Mercer-Meyers can read me a bedtime story any day. Lol. I look forward to the next book in the series!
I loved this novel. the best of the superhero genre without the art. and as visual as I am i didn't miss the art.
