Publisher's Summary

Having a surfeit of super powers is great for battling bad guys and saving the world, as Jim (aka Kid Sensation) is finding out, but less useful in dealing with day-to-day situations - like bonding with his superhero father, adjusting to a team environment, and coping with what might be perceived as a growing rivalry between himself and another teen super. On top of all that, despite having a serious girlfriend, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to a new female super he's just met.

At the same time, some villain has just gotten himself a new toy: an unknown weapon of tremendous power that is able to strike without warning, causing unprecedented destruction and loss of life. Perhaps more terrifying, the wielders of this weapon make no demands and issue no threats; they simply attack. Even the Alpha League, the world's greatest superhero team, is not immune, suffering an assault on their very own doorsteps.

It quickly becomes clear that the only way to stop this new evil is from within. With his unique abilities, Jim is the only person capable of infiltrating the enemy's ranks. It's up to him to figure out who is behind these attacks, what they want, and find a way to stop them - and their secret weapon - before they bring the entire world to its knees.

Another winner

Hardman has continued to build up his heroic world. Kid Sensation is back in this third book. Naramore' narration, already great, has somehow continued to improve. I really think he is beginning to get into the swing of the series, and his enjoyment of the material really shows. The series itself is straitup popcorn chewing superheroics like you'd see on the big screen.

I do have one small nitpicky problem, and that is the way the story is set up. For the most part it seems very much like two seperate self-contained stories. They do tie together, but it just comes off like two short stories put together. Nothing wrong with that, I just think either idea could have been fleshed out into a full length tale to stand on their own. Hardman's writing is as fine and sharp as ever, and he is very aware that he might be writing for an audience that does not consist solely of adults, and he keeps it toned for a YA audience (just like most comic books). I would like to see Kid Sensation face a real rival of a villain later in the series, every hero needs a good nemesis.

Over all another top notch tale.

Get it, read it, love it.

More fun from kid sensation

Kid sensation finds himself in another dilemma only he had deal with (because he happens to be in the right place at the right time). The overall story is enjoyable and entertaining, though some parts are a little obvious missing on the shocking reveal, not that it took away from the story.

I wonder if this is the start of an arch nemesis for Kid sensation.

It's great

My fourth read from author Kevin Hardman was amazing! Well-written super-hero sci-fic/suspense, with well-developed characters. Narrator Mikael Naramore’s narration added to the book’s enjoyment. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. I look forward to reading more in this series. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

An Entertaining Tale

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, and found it very entertaining. Kid Sensation is having difficulty adjusting to his new life. Being a super hero is cool, but it doesn't solve all your teenager problems. As Kid tries to works his way through his problems, he still has bad guys to deal with, threw in the suspense, action and some very intriguing characters and you'll be listening to the very end.

Book three continues the story of Kid and his cohorts. Unexpected twists and excitement, expressive narration along with clear and colourful writing, make for another great ' Kid' listen.

Super powered teen in a super powered world.

This book is easy enough to pick up without listening to the previous ones. Kevin Hardman does a good job letting you know enough about the characters, their history and relationships even if this is your first book in the series.

The writing is good crafting the events that unfold, the story is well paced and I never felt board or confused about what was happening in both high powered combat or more mundane situations. The whole book is written from one view point character that keeps it grounded and lets you get to know the main character and their thoughts.

The characters are believable and despite them having super powers they seem to be people with their own goals and motivations. Mikael Naramore adds to this doing another good job lending each character their own unique voice, helping to keep the story both immersive and engaging.

One thing that detracts a bit from the tension is that the main character is more than a little overpowered and despite all the things that happens to them I never felt there was any real risk to them. Their power set gives them at least one power suitable to get them out of almost any situation. Yet as with most high powered superhero stories it is the risks to others which motivates them more than the risks to them.

If you like superheros then this book is worth a listen and I am happy with the time I spent listing to it.

Super charged

This is the third Kid Sensation book in the series and the third one I have listened too. I really enjoyed it but I think this one is a bit slower on the action than the previous books. Still a good listen but not my favourite as I thought the rivalry between the teenagers was talked about but it wasn't there, no one throw a tantrum or a lighting bolt when they lost. Having said that I was fun listening to the challenges set for the different powers. I like that the characters feel like old friends but even if you haven't read or listen to the previous book there is enough detail to explain who every one is without getting re-petative .
With super heros popularity waning slightly from a few mishaps lately they decided to hold a charity competition between the teen super heros to boost morale. So Jim not only has to compete in the televised event but he also has to take down a mystery force that keep setting of bombs all before someone gets hurts and as the main targets seems to be his father he had better hurry.
Once again a brilliant choice for narrator , Mikael does such a good job for the different voices.

Another Sensation

The hero everyone loves to listen to and this the 3rd book is no different as we are taken in on a new adventure.
In this case an unknown enemy is after everyone in the Alpha League and Jim is trying to come to grips with his place in the team.
Soon Jim finds himself in the situation as the only person to be able to solve this problen as he infiltrates the enemy.

An enjoyable aventure if a little obvious and another faultless narration from Narramore.

A good read!

Any additional comments?

I listened to Terminus by the same author and I loved it. So I thought I will give this ago. However, I found that I preferred Terminus to this book. I think the reason is that Terminus is different where as Infiltration (kids with superpowers) is not a new concept.
I still liked the book, there was action/adventure, a little romance, mystery and suspense.
I would recommend this book to any one who loves kids/adults with superpowers!
Would recommend you read book one because you would end up having a lot of questions if you don't. There is no cliff hanger in this book.

The narrator was good. I felt I was listening to different people.
