Publisher's Summary

Summer's over, and Connor Connolly is headed back to school to start junior year. But with metabands falling from the sky, the world has changed overnight, and now there are thousands of new metahumans. Just like regular humans, not all metahumans are using their new powers for good.

Now, Connor's not only dealing with the pressures of being a super-human and training with his mentor, Midnight, but also has to balance relationships with the people he cares for most - people who find themselves on different sides of the fence when it comes to their feelings about the new metahumans and the impact they're having on everyone else's lives.

As the world struggles to adjust to the events of the past few months, Connor's alter ego, Omni, works with The Agency to apprehend law-breaking metahumans, and detain them at the Silver Island Meta Detention Facility. When he's recruited for a job assisting the government agency with disarming one of the most powerful and secretive metas in Bay View City, he never expects the devastation of that mission or the effect it will have on both humans and metas. Is Connor capable of becoming the hero he wants to be?

    "Great series"

    The first book started off good, the second got even better going more in depth for the characters and the bracelets. Having a real narrator helped a lot as well, if you like the hero genre def give this series a try, stick through the first book with the author narrating!

    "great book"

    really enjoying this serious, now I have to wait and get the third book. really easy audio book to listen to, hope the next one is as good as the first 2. I might be the odd man out but I actually preferred the authors voice especially with his Kevin Conroy as batman impersonation for midnight

    "Big improvement over Meta"

    I am so glad they brought in Kirby Heyborne. The worst part of the first book was the narration. The story is also improved in this book. There is a much more reasonable narrative. I like the whole batman mentoring superman feel between Midnight and Omni. The issues with the story came from Tom breaking all the rules he set down in the first book, the lazy plot device of battery life on the meta bands, and how disappointing the prison was. Don't set something up as badass and then have it just fall into chaos at the first bit of trouble. This book was better than the first but still has room to improve.

    "I've been waiting my whole life for this"

    I honestly just love how I've never heard a story like this before. It kept me engaged the entirety of it, without ever getting too slow or overwhelming. I excepted this book to answers questions I had after finishing Meta, which it did, but now I have 14,000 more questions... AND I LOVE IT. Keep stringing me along, Tom. I'll follow you to the ends of the world.

    "Ugh..."

    I was so frustrated by nearly every thought decision by the main protagonist and his prattling. I just wanted to thump him again and again and again. I wanted to wail on him for being such a putz. He didn't handle anything well. He cares more about his privacy than he does about actually saving people. This seemed less about a coming of age story with supers as the opportune times to be a hero who wants credit but "doesn't do it for the credit" I am not sure if I am getting book three.... on the one hand I want to see if it's actually better and less "meh" but at the same time. Connor makes me so angry! Not a case of what I think should happen compared to what happens but come ON. The whole debacle with his gf. And how he managed his time with her and his hobby was just dumb. Then he is surprised why she doesn't want to be with the scat for brains mp and then the author makes it out that she's actually pretty cool that he's such a flake. Suddenly taking a strong female lead and breaking her 1950 American pop culture style. Now go make me a martini sweetheart while I barbecue a steak in the back yard. Fuck off.
