Fans of the hit TV show Heroes will love Quantum Prophecy!

Ten years ago, all the superhumans vanished. No one knows what happened to them--until now. Thirteen-year-olds Danny and Colin are shocked to discover that they are in fact the beginning of a renewed superhuman race. As they rise to take the place of the lost generation, the unimaginable truth behind the explosive final battle that occurred ten years ago between the superheroes and the supervillains is exposed. And when the past resurfaces, Danny and his fellow superheroes must face the new challenges that threaten their survival. On the run from everyone, and not knowing who is friend or foe, the one ability the new heroes are going to need most is the power to distinguish good from evil.

About the Author:

Michael Carroll lives in Ireland.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9–Set in the British Isles in the near future, this adventure opens with a celebration of Mystery Day, the anniversary of a battle between superhumans and their enemies, after which the former disappeared. Colin, Danny, and Brian spend their time doing typical boy things. Two of the friends soon begin to experience strange physical changes, like the development of extreme speed and hearing, signaling that superhumans are not truly extinct. And, as they soon discover, neither are the villains from that time. The boys have to join with others of their kind to fight off another attack. A narrative style that features many temporal jumps keeps the story going, while the genuineness of the many male characters makes this title a likely hit with reluctant readers or kids who love adventure. Scenes of tyranny told in cliff-hanger style heighten the tension. Much of the story occurs in the real world, adding to readers' ability to identify with the action. Some names for the superheroes are not entirely inspired, but the simplicity of the story, the chumminess of the boys, and the strong plot outweigh any literary concerns. This is the first in a series; look for the future titles to expand the nascent mythology developed here.–John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
