Junior year has come for the remaining students of Melbrook Hall, and it promises to be the most difficult one yet. With one of their own gone and another under serious investigation, none of the former Powereds know how many days remain for them in the Hero Certification Program. The time they do have will be filled with more trials and classes, honing their skills as they work toward the increasingly difficult goal of becoming Heroes.
Ample new challenges await them, and not all of them can be met within the safety of Lander's campus. Fallout from last year's final exam has stirred the interest of many parties, not all of them friendly.
With enemies pressing in from all directions, it's going to take new alliances, dedication, and countless hours of training if they want to last another year.

I fell into the series accidentally with Corpies. I love the unique and ever evolving story and admit that I put the release dates in my calendar as PreOrders are still unavailable.
This story is not just a fantastic progression in the story arch but also you can really see how Drew Hayes has evolved as a writer. Any complaints I previously had like the over usage of "he said" and "she replied" making large group conversation tedious is gone. It's almost like Drew asked what the nit picky complaints were that I had and used them to improve. 40 plus hours is a long listen and generally full of 25 hours of repetition. For this 3rd book in the Super Powereds series, each word is necessary. For those that love a detailed fight scene and for those that love young romance or cloak and dagger, this book has something for everyone. The best thus far.
I don't like to put spoilers in my reviews but considering the time investment I will had only a few so of you don't like Spoilers, stop reading now:
For the love of God, finally Vince recognizes Camille and in case you were worried, Nick is back baby.
Drew, I sincerely thank you for all your work and look forward to the next installment.
Your Boswell. Succinct, but accurate.
OK, Drew Hayes Is only equalled by Brandon Sanderson. From Years 1, which I bought on a park and was absolutely flabbergasted by by the third chapter, forward I've purchased and eagerly awaited.
Other than to beg you to read these novels, the only things I've to say is, now that Year 3 FINALLY is out, fans might want to reevaluate when they read Corpies (a side project which, much to my consternation at the time, was released between Years 2 and 3), reading order wise. Without spoiling anything, I'd say the timeline suggests it'd be more helpful to read Corpies (which is essential, btw, because, again, Hayes is like Sanderson in apparently being unable to write a bad novel) between 2 and 3, though certainly not after 3. Just a heads up. Amazing, wonderful, essential... Keep the book lengths this long, Mr Hayes. This rivals Stormlight Archives in my mind and, I'd bet dollars to nickels, many Fantasy fans.
This is the 3rd installment of this series, (the Corpies volume was outstanding as well but not sure how it fits into this amazingness) has been one of my all time favorite books ever! just to add some perspective I have listened to over 400 audiobooks in the last 3 years in the Sci-fi and paranormal genre. I have been a fan of Mr. Hayes for a while, but this series is just incredible. it literally sucks you in, makes you almost emotionally attached to the characters. I could go on and on about how you should go out and get the entire series, but if you are a fan of not only excellent writing, narration, character & environmental development, and a storyline that make you feel like you are right there, a part of the action as well as the emotions, or if you just really like audiobooks, then as as fellow fan, I very strongly suggest that you start from year 1 in the series and have at it... you would have to be new to this series , if you had have already listened to any of the previous books you would not be reading any reviews, you would have already had this and the others downloaded, so get to it, you will not be disappointed.
thank you Mr. Hayes, you have given this Marine Corps Purple Heart recipient & disabled Veteran multiple hours of absolute enjoyment... I truly appreciate it
These books are everything I would expect if Xavier's School for gifted youngsters was merged with the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. But be warned these books are not for young children.
love the series,characters, narrator, story, editing, ...all of it! Come on book 4! (in this series, check out Corpies)
I read a variety of books from historical romance to science fiction. I particularly like books in a series.
I have already recommended this series to family and friends. Also good for teens (some suggestions about hooking up but not too must sex talk). Good comparisons between good and evil and how the world seems to view people who are different. Mostly just a good read with funny characters that you grow to love.
Vince - he represents what most people aspire to be. In the face of all his adversity he still tries to do the right thing.
Titan - he was a wonderful character - flaws and all
Yes - laughed and cried. Always cheering for the underdog and hating the bad guys.
I will leave a better review for the first book, since if you have made it this far, you already know how great this series is!
"love this series"
I love this book! i have all the authors available audio books, his way of writing and his depth of description is spot on highly recommend all his books
I have come to love this series of books, i just hope year 4 is not to far away, as there are still old and new unanswered questions.
"most entertaining book ive read for a long time"
Naruto meets Harry Potter with an adult twist
this series gets better with every book I lost a lot of sleep due to this incredible story recomend to all
the story does go on, but in a fashion that doesn't bore you. with around 12 people's stories being told parallel to each other it's naturally long, but I loved it
"I am addicted to this series."
Continous well written. Light and fun but with a harsh reality looming on horizon. It is so very easy to submerge yourself in this realistic hero world.
Can't wait for the next one.
This audio was a very good read from start to finish and carried the story along nicely. It was just such a shame that it had to end. I enjoyed every minute and found my self feeling many different emotions such as joy, sadness, anger, releaf and anticipation. The narration was as good as the other books in the series that's to say good. For those of you that find your self looking at this audio book and aren't sure to wether you should bye it or not then all I will say is give it ago you don't know what you are missing. Now all I have to do is wait for book 4, I really hope that it's not going to be a long wait.
