This story centers around 5 super powered kids, who until an experimental surgery, haven't had control of their powers. <..Show More »br/> The narrorator does an excellent job with changing his voice for each character and pulls you into the story.
To me, the story is more like a season of a TV series, unlike most books which strive to be a movie.
Love the all the details, and the way it was written. And as an added bonus, I now know which super power I wish I had...
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 P..Show More »reOrders 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.
I was both eagerly anticipating and dreading Corpies release. If you've finished Year One have no fear, the spoilers in Corpies are very, very minor. ..Show More »Time-wise it seems to take place during Super Powereds Year Three, but it avoids all but two very minor spoilers, one of which is painfully obvious and the other very easily missed.
The book is great. It does a lot of great world building, giving a wealth of information about the world of Super Powereds and how it works. The story itself is as original a super hero story as I've ever read. It really deserves a place along side Watchmen (graphic novel, not the dreadful movie). I'm not sure if Drew is planning to continue the story of Titan and/or the corpies, but I'd read it in a second.
