Summary

The third thrilling adventure book from best-selling, award-winning authors Greg James and Chris Smith.

You don't need superpowers to be a hero...or do you?

Despite having no powers, Murph Cooper is part of the best team in the Heroes' Alliance. So when supervillain Magpie declares all-out war, Kid Normal and the Super Zeroes lead the charge.

But Magpie believes that a powerless hero is no hero at all. And he's building a dastardly device to prove it.

When Kid Normal enters the shadow machine, the world will never be the same....

Attention Grabbing Book

In this book, there is soo much adventure and suspension going on, you would never want to put the book down. The expressions of characters are excellently spoken and the story is brilliant as well. It is all about the evil villain from the book before, blackmailing Murph Copper to do what he says (for a suspension g reason if you read the book). Read the first book, then then second, before moving onto this.
