Publisher's Summary

The pressure of being a super - especially a teen super - can get to anyone, as Jim (aka Kid Sensation) has witnessed firsthand. Now he wonders if he himself might be succumbing to the strain in some way, as he can't shake the feeling that he is now being watched by some new stalker. Moreover, despite his wide slate of powers, he hasn't been able to discover a single clue to substantiate the existence of this potential new enemy, making him wonder if it's all in his head.

Looking forward to a few days of rest and hanging out with his friends, Jim's downtime is interrupted by the unsettling news that Alpha Prime, the world's greatest superhero (and Jim's father), is missing. As if that wasn't bad enough, Jim finds his world rocked by an even more ominous revelation: his deranged half-brother, Paramount, has escaped from confinement in a maximum security installation.

In the course of investigating these events and trying to ascertain what connection, if any, there is between them, Jim becomes privy to information concerning a potent alien device capable of laying waste to the entire planet. But he's not the only one - an enigmatic villain wants the alien technology for his own purposes, and it's up to Jim to find a way to stop him before the world pays the ultimate price.

A book of Revelations!

For a YA book, this doesn't read like YA. My kids and I listen to it together, and we enjoy it immensely and helps us on our long drives. I have to say, this book really stepped up to the plate, and it reminded me of book 1. It had a lot of depth and characterizations that were well played, and the romance became believable. Some of the background/secondary characters finally see some action, and we have a villain who is a real honest to God threat.

One thing my sone pointed out was that Kid Sensation isn't always smart in the way he does stuff, or the way he reacts or over someone. I pointed out that that is exactly how teenagers behave. I even explained that just because one is smart or skilled does it mean that they will utilize their full potential all the time. For all his powers, Sensation is a falliable human being, just a teenager going through what all teens do. So it became a good learning life lesson, too. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like ME, will decide based on my review.

As always, Naramore does an amazing job narratiing, and I firmly believe that he elevates Hardman's work to a new level. I think this everytime I listen to him. This is a great series, and so far, it keeps getting better.

A Solid Addition To The Series

Kid Sensation’s criminal half-brother, Paramount has escaped from a superhero maximum security prison. Alpha Prime, their Superman-like father is mysteriously missing. There is an alien device capable of destroying the planet and a particular super villain is after it. So just another day in the life of Kid Sensation. This is an excellent entry in an already excellent series. Not only should you check out “Revelation,” you should also pick up the other books in this series. Unless of course, you’re not into superhero, sci-fi fantasy stories.

Finally, this audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

Let me start with "viruses are not alive"

I'll start with I really like these books This is supposed to be a young adult book and I just think it is irresponsible of the Arthor to not just simple facts like weigher viruses are a live or not. Yes i know it is a fantasy novel but this was not part of his lore it's just an alternative fact that he thought he knew correctly.

As for the rest of the book i like I have a pet P about books that "breaks characters". Meaning that they establish the characteristics​ of a particular character (e.g. is for giving but in this book is not for giving.) The whole book the main character was paranoid about one character for good reasons but he has never shown this trait before. In fact in this very same book a person approaches him who he has even more reason to be paranoid about a he was the one telling everyone to chill and let's give him a chance. So when a couple of chapters later he is for lack of a better word gunho about not giving someone a second chance and flys into a blind rage at the mere site of a person. That is when i say the author broke his character.

I do like elements that he has added and where the books is going but i do believe that in this book the enemy is taken way too lightly and more extreme measures should be taken. Oh yeah the enemy has the ability to wipe out the whole world and also thinks of us a insect. Your response should not be well people try to kill us all the time. Let help them so they can get off world a bring torror the Galaxy.

another great adventure for kid sensation

I really did enjoy this story. I thought it was a great installation in the compilation of the kid sensation storyline. I like how the characters came together. especially from the teenage standpoint on young heroes trying to become seasoned vets. I also enjoyed the family intrigued that was going through kid sensations life. overall I really have enjoyed this author. I truly believe it was great light reading. I couldn't put the book down and was really glad when there was an audio book available.

Hold on to your hat and enjoy!

You ever notice how Kevin Hardman gives each book a one word title that masterfully describes the essence of what the story is gonna be about! Well this book is all about The Revelation, but you'll need to hold on to your hat to keep up, as there's actually multiple revelations. The revelations start with Kid Sensation's (Jim's) family: The Kid grew up knowing that his mom and grandfather were his only family, but now he's learning to be a son to the dad he never knew (meeting in the 1st book), suddenly, he's  swept into a sort-of family reunion, with an uncle and cousins! Plus revelations about his friend and mentor Mouse! And that alone should be enough for one guy to take in. But no, his nemesis Paramount has escaped, and there's an evil alien who's planning a earth shattering cataclysmic event. It's up to Kid Sensation and he can't do it alone he calls on his super team, and even asks his family for help trying to put things to right!
Mikael Naramore and Kevin Hardman takes us on a pulse pounding trip that's more about a fantastic journey than getting to the end... and indeed you'll want to get to that end!

The young team supers saves the world again.

Again, "Jim" has another eventful few days, whilst the adults are off doing there own thing, "Jim", otherwise known as "Kid Sensation", saves the world under very harrowing circumstances.
This is the 4th audiobook in this series, and I have enjoyed the storyline in the series, but the narrator adds that extra wham, to the story, by the various characters vocalizations.

Revel in this story

Another action packed book that's a big hit with me, with all the twist and turns it certainly keeps you hooked.
With most of the super hero's on holiday or out fighting crime it's up to the teen supers to step up to the plate and keep the world safe. For one that turns out to be a tall order, Jim's father Alpha Prime has gone missing and in trying to track him down he stumbles on a deadly plot to destroy the earth, as well as a few family secrets. Can he and the other teen capes foil the super villain's plans
This was a great book as it never quite took the direction you thought it was going to go and I loved learning more about Jim's family. I have listened to the other books in the series so it was nice to expanded on his home life but at the same time the author does it in such a way that if you haven't read the previous books it's still easy to follow.
The narrator is quickly becoming one of my favourite readers as he does such a good job

The title is very apt

The title is very apt, there are definite surprises in this book and more of Jim's background and family is revealed. As with all the others in the series, I really enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one.

Another Easy 5 stars

It's always good to fuel my Kid Sensation Audio kick and the pairing of Hardman and Naramore always do well.
I have tried a few other super stories and the majority dont catch me like these do so i can only recommend this to all. Usual thrills, twists and engaging characters abound especially if you have followed these stories from the start.
