Summary

Knowledge is power. That would be the motto of Lander University, had it not been snatched up and used to death by others long before the school was founded. For while Lander offers a full range of courses to nearly all students, it also offers a small number of specialty classes to a very select few. 

Lander is home to the Hero Certification Program, a curriculum designed to develop student with superhuman capabilities, commonly known as Supers, into official Heroes. Five of this year’s freshmen are extra special. They have a secret aside from their abilities, one that they must guard from even their classmates. Because for every one person in the world with abilities they can control, there are three who lack such skill. These lesser super beings, Powereds as they are called, have always been treated as burdens and second class citizens. Though there has been ample research in the area, no one has ever succeeded in turning a Powered into a regular human, let alone a Super.    

That is, until no....…

Somehow better than the original

This series was made for the Graphic Audio format. I own both versions, and while the first was good, full cast with music and effects really makes this story glow. The heart of a his series is the characters, and this audio style spotlights that. If you like superheroes, multilayered characters with heart, and young adults coming into their own m, this story is absolutely for you. I look forward to buying the rest of these books again in full cast. Hands down one of my favorite comfort reads.
