In Amped, people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities - and rights - of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, 29-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world - or destroy it.

Would you try another book from Daniel H. Wilson and/or Robbie Daymond?

Yes but this was dissappointing - story felt it was written in a few sessions there was very little to it and many possibilities were left unexplored or missed entirely.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Cool concept with the different levels of the zenith

Any additional comments?

Not worth the $ I used vs using a credit.
