Summary

As the grandson of the alien princess Indigo, Jim (aka Kid Sensation) has always known that, technically, he's royalty. That said, he'd be the first to admit that he's never lived any kind of regal lifestyle - no titles, no castles, no crown jewels. However, the arrival of a courier from his grandmother's home world changes all of that in an instant. By royal edict, Jim is summoned home to the distant planet Caeles in order to claim an alien inheritance. Unfortunately, this is no warm and cuddly family reunion. Caeles is a hotbed of political intrigue, and Jim's arrival has widespread ramifications. Not only are several factions attempting to utilize his very existence as leverage to advance their own agendas, but Jim himself is required to submit to an archaic trial known as a prexetus. Moreover, while some are content with simply trying to use him, it quickly becomes apparent that at least one shadowy individual just wants Jim out of the way - quickly, completely, and permanently. Light years from Earth, with little family and fewer friends, Jim faces the daunting task of finding an enemy whose ultimate purpose is unknown and whose methods are extreme. Complicating matters even further is the fact that Jim's much-heralded super powers are glitching, making him incredibly vulnerable for perhaps the first time in his life.

Kid Sensation goes off planet

Wow, we are on the fifth book already! What a great ride this has been so far. I must say that as we go further in, the stories keep improving and getting deeper and deeper with their plots, characteizations, and dialogue. Hardman is cetainly improving as he goes.

Coronation is no exception, either. This book literally blasts off, taking the great Kid Sensation into outer space, to his other homeworld, where he is once again called upon make like a hero.

This is part of a series, but I really feel like it could be a stand alone story. It has legs that are that strong. You could literally come into this series with this book, and be able to follow along happily, not that you'd want to after all, the other stuff is fantastic. Here we get to see the Kid facing an unknown enemy, right when his powers are failing him for the first time in his life.

Hardman continues to step up his game, and it really feels as if KS is finally growing as a character, along with the rest of the cast. The plots are evolving and amping up. I did want to say that KS reminds me of Marvel's Jack of Hearts character, alien royalty with immense powers. I know it is not exactly accurate, but I like the comparison.

I really enjoy it when the stakes are raised, and hope seems to dwindle, and man does this story deliver here. I will say this book is a great new chapter in the KS series. It is a rebirth and a new beginning and has opened up the entire universe as part of Kid Sensation's playground.

Per usual, Naramore does an amazing job narrating. He has become Kid Sensation, and now whenever I hear him in another story I always expect to have KS show up. In one way that is awesome, in another, it is a little disappointing. Because you want more Kid in any story. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Yes that was good

That was the best kid sensation book of them all just beautiful I want more and i want it to be a longer more robust novel.
I have to admit that after the last book i was disappointed in how he made so many character contradictions. But he redeemed himself with this one.

the end makes it

I'm so tired of Jim being so stupid I almost gave up on this one but the way it ends makes me want to see what happens next I just wish that after 5 books that damn fool Jim will quit being so unconscious of his surroundings how the hell do you walk into a room and not realize your not where you should be but this idiot does it all the damn time

Arguably The Best Entry In The Series

“Coronation” is book five in the Kid Sensation series. This time Kid Sensation, who is part human and part alien royalty, must journey home to deal with an unforeseen problem on his alien side of the family. Only, someone doesn’t want him to make it home safely. The spaceship he travels in is sabotaged to crash. After he foils that attempt on his life, someone attempts to end his life on several more occasions. On his alien side of the family’s home planet. Kid Sensation quickly discovers there is history, culture, politics and plenty of intrigue to keep him busy and any reader/listener happy while trying to figure out who done it. I highly recommend “Coronation” whether you are the target, young adult audience or just young at heart.

Also, although you could enjoy book five on its own, I highly recommend reading/listening in order to the first four books in the series. Finally, this audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

Very entertaining!

Hard to stop listening to! Lots of action, twists, and "wait-a-minutes." An excellent continuation of the Kid Sensation story.

Awesome series!

What did you love best about Coronation?

This is a wonderful series that's highly entertaining and not over the top. I like a lot of other genres, but this has a lot of action, thought and keeps you entertained from start to finish
