Summary

As metahumans emerge throughout the world, some greet them as saviors while others see them as a threat to humanity itself. A group of elite soldiers come into possession of the most powerful metabands seen yet, with the ability to destroy what was thought to be indestructible: the metabands themselves.

With the destruction of the Silver Island Metahuman Detention Facility, Bay View City goes into total lockdown. The Alpha Team impose their protection, but at a price: the complete and total ban of metahumans within the city. Refusal to follow is punishable by execution.

Forced to leave the city he calls home, Connor is given a second chance at an elite prep school across the bay - one with a very big secret.

Poorly written with numerous inconsistencies.

There's not a lot to say really besides the title of my review as it speaks for itself.
Book 3 contains a big reveal that falls flat, a random unexplained fight with an 'invisible' who is wearing clothes (when in an earlier book it is stated that they have to be naked) and an final battle as unresolved as the other books.
Considering I gave book 1 a 3 also one might question why I have bought the two sequels but I feel the writer has potential and I'm happy to pay to help them keep working on their books as I do believe he has a masterpeice waiting to come out.

Concerned!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the author remembered what he previously wrote, and the character interactions actually made sense and weren't irrational and irritating.

What do you think your next listen will be?

In ashes born by Nathan Lowell I like his previous series.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kirby Heyborne’s performances?

His performance was fine, the material was bad!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment. The supporting characters were enraging and petty.

Any additional comments?

If the author could remember his plot and previous scenes; it would be much obliged!

It flows pretty good

What three words best describe Kirby Heyborne’s voice?

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Maybe if I had the time

Great story!!!

I'm a big fan of this series, and once again Mr. Reynolds doesn't disappoint. I'm a huge fan of the Super hero genre of fiction and this is one of the better series that I've read. Read this people, and then you can thank me later.

amazing but a few things

so this whole series was amazing!! that being said there were a few things that i, and I'm sure others have as well, that is the fact that the author seemed to forget what he wrote in the previous books. it wasn't so bad but it was noticeable but in no way takes away from the fact that this was an amazing series and the ending was incredible. my only hope is that some insanely rich person reads this book series and decides to turn it into a movie or tv show! one can hope

All around great

great story line, character development, and quite entertaining. I loved it. The teenagery of the protagonist was believably annoying at times, as well lol

Fun to listen to

Very enjoyable story. Nothing serious but good imagination. The author is very descriptive throughout the story. Some of the story line was fairly easy to foresee but it didn't bother me. I especially enjoyed the story towards the end and I look forward to the next book.

please tell me this was done by a ghost writer

First two books were awesome! This was like sending Superman back to Super Hero High.
