    "the climax is worth the wait"

    Upon reading the description of this book I was immediately interested in the novel. It's no surprise considering I'm a sucker for people with powers. Whether they are a mutation, mystical, otherworldly, or the result of science; they have a place in my heart. With Stan Lee attached, and having read and enjoyed some of Stuart Moore's comic book work, I was really ready to jump in.

    Steven is on a class field trip when he decides to follow a young woman into a restricted area. He quickly discovers it is somewhere he should not have ventured. A fight breaks out between the woman Steven had been following, he later learned was named Jasmine, and a mysterious and intimidating man, who goes by Maxwell. During the fight something strange happens and Steven ends up with strange powers that reflect that of a tiger. He soon learns select people have been imbued with power of the the Chinese Zodiac based on the year in which they were born. Steven has the power of the Tiger, while Jasmine and Maxwell share the power of the dragon. After the battle Steven is proposed by Jasmine to join their fight against Maxwell. It turns out he wants all of the zodiac power for himself and has recruited other powered individuals to his cause. Using them to coerce or, if that doesn't work, even kidnap by force others with the power. When he learns of Maxwell's intentions and true nature, the new team quickly sets out in search of others with the power in hopes of building their defenses.

    This was an enjoyable read. It takes a while for the story to gain momentum, but the climax is worth the wait. While there is some character building for the protagonists, Maxwell seems very two dimensional, even stereotypical. With this being book one of a series, Moore probably wanted to focus on getting to know the good guys. With plenty of time to flush out the villains in a later volume, why rush? I really enjoyed the diversity the authors brought with the characters. They are from all across the globe ranging from Ireland, China, France and more; with personality types just as diverse as their countries of origin, there is something for everyone to relate to. I look forward to book two for a few reasons, but a couple in particular. Primarily, as I said before, I'm a sucker for super powers and I want to know more about them and the world they have been released into. Also, I think the narrator has potential and I am anxious to see how he develops as a voice talent.

    The same eclectic set of characters that makes this story so broad in view, was a great way for the narrator to flex his range. Feodor Chin, I must admit, felt a bit choppy in the beginning but he quickly found his voice(s), delivering a very good performance overall. He has very good range and juggled the male and female voices well. The accents for each character were also done well. Chin also has a firm grasp on voices for a wide range of ages; the teens sound like teens, the adults sound like adults.  I am always excited when I listen to a new, talented narrator. It, after all, is one of the biggest draws for me to audio books. While the stories are typically what draw me in initially, a good narrator can keep me invested. And Feodor Chin keeps me interested.

    "An entertaining story,"

    perfect if you like stories where the underdog comes out on top, I enjoyed the little twist at the end. No disrespect to the narrator Mr. Chin, he is a talented performer, however I would have been more captivated if they would have used a second narrator do split up the dialog between the characters. This of course is just a personal preference of mine.

    "fun book for anyone that enjoys a 'Super' story"

    I enjoyed this book. and my kids 8-14 thought it was fantastic! (We also bought the hard copy for my son so he could read along.) This is a great springboard for what I hope will be a great 'super' series.
