Publisher's Summary

Three years after the showdown with Finch razed their hometown of Freepoint and changed their lives forever, Phillip and the rest of The Ables gang find another school year interrupted by a growing threat.   

Relations with the government have never been more strained and the political rhetoric has shifted to a more hostile tone when discussing those with special abilities. A new branch of Homeland Security has been empowered to investigate custodial acts of heroism and even detain suspects indefinitely. While juggling his leadership responsibilities over the dozens of Ables members, a new crush, and a growing anxiety problem.... 

Phillip will have to decide how much of The Ables' time will be spent training for simulation games and how much will be spent stepping into the real-world crime-fighting holes created by the custodians that have disappeared - presumed to be imprisoned or worse. Confronted with a mysterious new villain wielding a previously unknown power, Phillip, Bentley, and Henry will be forced to stretch their abilities and their bonds further than ever before.

disappointing

Not only was I disappointed right from the start that the narrator was not Jeremy, but the story itself felt rushed and not fleshed out enough for me to feel invested.

Not as good as Book 1

First the narrator was alright however, but it was a step down from the Ables. The book has some good ideas, however some parts of the book had me asking why are they doing this..where is everyone else..and the ending just lost me. People exterm things when there were other options.

Excellent sequel

Most of the original characters with added new ones. Very well done. Having disabilities myself I appreciate the fresh chosen perspective.

Good, but should have been read by the author

The story is a good sequel to the first Ables book and is worth listening to. That being said, the reason I came to the Ables party was the voice of the Cinema Sins guy. Having someone else read the sequil is a bit jarring and I never quite got use to it. Like if Yahtzee Croshaw of Zero Punctuation had someone with an American acsent read one of his books. Still worth getting, but gets a Sin (Ding!).

great sequel, too short

narrator is great, and the story is epic. I really wanted the story to be longer, but it wasn't lacking in any substance... just didn't want it to be over yet.
