Publisher's Summary

It has been 10 years since the great battle that wiped out all the superhumans. Whether they all died that day or simply lost their powers and blended back into society, only one thing is certain: they are gone. Or are they?

Thirteen-year-olds Danny and Colin have recently begun changing. How can they explain Danny's newfound ability to move at the speed of light, or Colin's surprising strength? They can't, but their parents - the lost generation of superhumans - can. They have been watching and waiting for these changes. So have others - and not everyone is happy about the boys' new powers. Some will do anything to stop them.

Michael Carroll delivers an action-packed story in the tradition of the Alex Rider Adventures and the X-Men.

Please Sir, May I NOT Have Another?

Read my previous review for the other novel in this series.

Please Kennedy... Just stop. Cease and desist. Acquire training, and then come back to narrate audiobooks.

I repeat, what a shame that the good work here is mangled by the narrator.

Do NOT buy this audiobook. Read this work, and the other strong followup novels in the series, especially "Super Human."

They are exceptional superhero NOVELS.
