    In Amped, people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities - and rights - of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, 29-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world - or destroy it.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Daniel H. Wilson and/or Robbie Daymond?

    The idea has a lot going for it, but I felt overall it was rushed and not a lot of thought went into the process.


    What could Daniel H. Wilson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More research and editing.


    How could the performance have been better?

    With what he had to work with, not much.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Amped?

    To many to list.


    Any additional comments?

    This book could be a winner with more polish and research.
