Review:

"Here s a debut that will knock...superhero fans on their butts. A fresh twist...kids are going to gobble this up."--Booklist King brilliantly combines teenage points of view and emotions with comic book excitement. VOYA, starred review
"[King] never loses his knack for humorous--teen-friendly--dialogue."--The Horn Book
"Where many action/adventure novels sacrifice character development for the sake of quick pacing, this is a nonissue for King: his teens are vivid, funny, and relatable, but their growth never comes at the expense of story or plot development. Add in descriptions of cool weaponry and superpowers, a healthy dose of clever one-liners and snappy dialogue, and plenty of chases and explosions, and you ve got all the ingredients for a hit series that teens will love. King is definitely an author to watch."--SLJ"
