Imagine a world where superheroes and supervillains really existed, and everyone knew it. Then, a mere decade ago, they all suddenly disappeared without explanation. Now, two young teenagers in England suspect they may also have superpowers, which makes them targets for unknown military forces. Their parents haven’t been telling them everything, and when confronted, they have to share some truths that aren’t all that pleasant. Kidnapped, on the run in a strange country, not knowing who is friend or foe, not able to rely on their new powers that come and go, Colin and Danny must decide. If they have super powers, who will they turn out to be . . . the good guys or the bad guys? This first in a trilogy promises to be a terrific ride for young readers, especially boys. While the subject matter is lifted from comic books, this is a solid read. The pace is fast, the story more than credible and the characters appealing. A coming-of-age story with a delightful twist. (Science fiction. 10-14)
