Summer's over, and Connor Connolly is headed back to school to start junior year. But with metabands falling from the sky, the world has changed overnight, and now there are thousands of new metahumans. Just like regular humans, not all metahumans are using their new powers for good.
Now, Connor's not only dealing with the pressures of being a super-human and training with his mentor, Midnight, but also has to balance relationships with the people he cares for most - people who find themselves on different sides of the fence when it comes to their feelings about the new metahumans and the impact they're having on everyone else's lives.
As the world struggles to adjust to the events of the past few months, Connor's alter ego, Omni, works with The Agency to apprehend law-breaking metahumans, and detain them at the Silver Island Meta Detention Facility. When he's recruited for a job assisting the government agency with disarming one of the most powerful and secretive metas in Bay View City, he never expects the devastation of that mission or the effect it will have on both humans and metas. Is Connor capable of becoming the hero he wants to be?

I honestly just love how I've never heard a story like this before. It kept me engaged the entirety of it, without ever getting too slow or overwhelming. I excepted this book to answers questions I had after finishing Meta, which it did, but now I have 14,000 more questions... AND I LOVE IT. Keep stringing me along, Tom. I'll follow you to the ends of the world.
I am so glad they brought in Kirby Heyborne. The worst part of the first book was the narration. The story is also improved in this book. There is a much more reasonable narrative. I like the whole batman mentoring superman feel between Midnight and Omni. The issues with the story came from Tom breaking all the rules he set down in the first book, the lazy plot device of battery life on the meta bands, and how disappointing the prison was. Don't set something up as badass and then have it just fall into chaos at the first bit of trouble. This book was better than the first but still has room to improve.
