    John Ridley, the best-selling author of The Drift, is renowned for his gritty, violent tales and their razor-sharp dialogue. This foray into science fiction is an explosive thriller. In the near future, superheroes are very real. But so are supervillains. When San Francisco is toasted during a superbeing clash, America has had enough. All metanormals must leave the country, or face extermination at the hands of an elite new law enforcement branch.

    Overall

    I should point out that I haven't listened to this audio book. Maybe the reader is simply atrocious. I did, however, read this book in paperback and enjoyed it quite a bit. The "uprising" another reviewer mentioned wasn't really what happened though that is sort of the impression given early in the book. Later more details are given and the underlying reasons for the animosity toward the mutants comes out - the normals are really ticked at themselves for putting all their faith in the mutants. And when the good guy mutants failed to save the day the normals got ticked. They, IMO, overreacted (and I think that's part of the point the author intended) but once the details are understood, the results make more sense.

    For anyone who was disappointed with the audio book, I'd recommend picking up the paperback. It still may not be your cup of tea but at least you won't be put off by a poor reader (which, from the sounds of it, this one has).

    I agree that the plot is somewhat slim and something of a knock off of X-Men in some ways - but, then, it'd be hard to do anything related to mutants these days and not have it compared to the X-Men in some way.
