Publisher's Summary

Jim (aka Kid Sensation) is no stranger to difficult and dangerous tasks. Having faced down everything from ruthless aliens to sadistic supervillains, he’s shown that he can more than hold his own under almost any circumstances. But now he’s facing a situation unlike anything he’s ever encountered before.

Recruited by a colleague for a mysterious mission and transported to a realm beyond space and time, Jim finds himself thrust into the company of Incarnates - individuals with powers and abilities so vast that they can do almost anything, including warp reality. But these esteemed personages are plagued by a dark issue, for which they turn to Jim for help: One amongst them is a murderer.

Charged with finding this killer, Jim soon realizes the inherent folly of pursuing an individual who is power personified and able to alter reality with the wave of a hand. With the fate of the universe hanging in the balance, he must find a way to defeat a murderous, nigh-omnipotent foe who can not only match his powers, but also negate them - fully and permanently.

A Great Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, and found it very entertaining. Jim is recruited by a team to help solve a murder. He finds himself realm beyond anything he's ever had to deal with before. As he starts to investigate, he realizes he maybe out gunned by the suspects. With a very interesting plot, developed around very unique characters this story moves along a good pace, and suddenly it's over. With just the right amount of suspense, action and humour makes it well worth the listen.

Kid Sensation - Murder Investigator

To help one of his fellow superheros, Jim is transported to the realm of the "Incarnate", a race of beings with god-like powers in order to help solve the murder of one of their own. Because of the unique and considerable powers of their species, the Incarnates are convinced that the killer could only be one of their own so Jim sets out to help them track down the killer. It won't be easy and it will be dangerous but while searching for a solution, Kid Sensation will discover things he never imagined about the Incarnate, the Universe and himself.
Like all of the previous Kid Sensation stories, Kevin Hardman has packed this adventure full of mystery, suspense and danger. The characters are interesting and Jim just continues to grow more intriguing and likable the more we learn about him.
I've enjoyed every book in the series and this one was no exception.

A wonderful book.

I loved this one, the mystery of who was the bad guy kept me guessing until it was revealed. I loved the way Ruin and Jim interacted. The end left me wanting more.

Jim tackles a who-done-it!

I've been trying to get this review out for a while now and having some difficulty getting my feelings out... so here goes my feeble attempt!
Did I like it? Yes!
Did I love it? No!
Why not?
One of my favorite things about Kid Sensation books is that Kid Sensation works with his team in order to solve crimes, but in this book, Jim (aka the Kid), is completely on his own... and I miss the team!
Jim is tasked with solving a murder. Yes, the story is interesting as all the suspects are Incarnates... beings even more powerful than Jim, In fact they can negate his powers!
I love a good mystery! But my least favorite type of mystery is the old-fashioned who-done-it, you know the type where there's a big reveal at the end! And that's exactly what Incarceration is!
Jim did what he always does and tackles the mystery head on! Along the way we find out some cool new things, and well the story is satisfying, but not the story that I crave...
  Mikael Naramore as always took me on an adventure and I loved listening to his narration!

Who dunnit Kid styles & wow finish💛

A more complex & longer story then the previous books. More world and character building, but just what it will mean for Jim is yet to be known (damn it).
A great addition to the Kid Sensation series. 
As always highly entertaining and a pleasure to hear. 
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give my opinion and rating

The Kid, again, saves the day!

We know of "Jim", alias "Kid Sensation" from previous episodes. His abilities are astonishing, even amongst his peers of Supers.
This episode has him playing detective, trying to find a murder of an Incarnate being, that only one of a handful of similar beings, would had a chance in killing.
It's a baffling situation, but Jim is, as usual astute, and up to the task.
I must say, this author's imagination for fantasy worlds and situations is mind boggling. Also, the use of higher level language to describe and enhance a young reader's experience is gratifying.
It lifts these books into a category far above the average fantasy read, but also gives the reader explanations of the unfamiliar text, so the reader's vocabulary is enhanced and broadened. I know young adults would enjoy these fantasies, but they would, unknowingly, be influenced by unfamiliar vocabulary.

Very Enjoyable!

Jim steps out of his role as a Justice League teen member and agrees to help Rune with a problem. He ends up in an ‘out-of-this-world’ Murder mystery. Great story, fun characters, lots of action, and ‘Oh My’ secrets. Loved it!

What a sensation!!

I love the kid sensation series but am a murderer mystery fan at heart . So this book was just perfect for me and I loved every minute, can't wait until the next book. This is book seven in a great series and continues from were book six left off. It is missing the usual gang (Smokey, Electra etc) but the story was interesting enough that you didn't miss them. I really liked the mystery side of the story and being a Kid Sensation novel the unique way he solve the mystery. It was very different with Jim not being the most powerful super hero in the room and I like the way the author describes the new characters so well that you can easily picture them.
Jim has been whisked away by Ruin, a fellow Alpha league member to help with a little problem.It is only after Jim arrives that he is now trapped in realm with a killer and can not leave until he has solved the murder. The only ones capable of killing an Incarnate is another Incarnate, so at least his suspect pool is small. It's just a same that they are all more powerful than he is and one is determined that he doesn't get to the bottom of this little problem even if he is the great Kid Sensation. True to any good super hero Kid Sensation has a few tricks up his sleeve because on this mission where he doesn't know who to trust and essentially being on his own he is going to have to pull some really good tricks out of his hat before anyone else gets killed.
I really like Mikael Naramore as a narrator and this book proves why he is one of my favourite readers.

I really enjoyed finding out more about Rune

Jim has a new mission but this time it has nothing to do with being a superhero on Earth. Rune has spirited him away to a different dimension to help solve a murder mystery that he is uniquely qualified for. Rune is more than a superhero, he is an Incarnate. One of a group of beings with much more powerful abilities than the Alpha League. This gave scope to a lot more than the usual flying and super strength. I missed some of the usual characters, but I really enjoyed finding out more about Rune and this whole other world.
while the main story has a pretty satisfactory conclusion, I still can't believe we were left with such a bombshell!

Superhero whodunnit

The latest instalment in this series takes a slightly different turn for a number of reasons, for one thing Jim (Kid Sensation) is not the most powerful person in the room as he is dealing with a group of beings known as Incarnates and for another, this book is more of a detective story than your typical superhero book as Jim has to find out which of these beings is the killer.

The narrator's performance serves to enhance this book with a suitably varied range of tones for the new members of the cast as well as the existing ones.

Overall, another quality entry in a strong series that works whether you are a returning listener or new to the series.

Always a Pleasure

Its always hard to find such a fulfilling superhero series such as Kid Sensation but indo enjoy these stories a lot.
Having Jim defeat superheroes on Earth, and fight Powers on alien worlds and across other dimensions, what else was there left to do.
Well , use his problem solving abilities to help near omnipotent beings solve a murder was the answer with many a twist i still enjoy Hardmans writing on this character.
Narration is ever a issue with Narramore so this can only deserve 5 stars as i was kept going from start to finish.
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts.
