Product Description

Product Description

Like millions of other kids, Jim grew up wanting to be a superhero. Unlike most of his contemporaries, however, Jim actually had the goods: a plethora of super powers that would have been the envy of any meta on the planet. But when his tryout with the Alpha League - the world's premiere group of supers - goes disastrously wrong, Jim basically becomes an outcast.

Two years later, Jim is still bitter about what happened to him. However, he soon finds himself the centerpiece in an odd turn of events that gives him a second chance at his dream. But nothing is as easy as it sounds, as Jim soon discovers. Among other things, he’s made an enemy of a prospective super teammate, he’s being stalked by an unknown pursuer, and a shadowy cabal bent on world domination has identified him as the only obstacle to their plans.

It’s a lot for one super to handle, even with a smorgasbord of abilities. But if saving the world were easy, everyone would do it…

About the Author

The sixth of seven children, Kevin Hardman grew up with a love of all things fantastical: comics, sci-fi, fantasy, etc. If it was unreal or imaginary, he could relate to it. Over the years, he has found employment in a wide variety of professions, including - among other things - a stint in the military, working for UPS, in a research lab, as a waiter, and as a telephone survey taker. Somewhere in between all that, he found time to earn 3 degrees and foster his love of reading and writing. "Sensation" is his first superhero/fantasy/adventure novel, and he is currently hard at work on the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bubble gum for the brain. 8 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit to liking Superhero stories and this series is OK. It's aimed at slightly younger readers but it is still a good yarn. Just don't go looking for deep meaning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well I think that it's quite good 7 Oct 2013
By PhilJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Honestly, I don't understand the two extremely negative reviews.

Yes, on one hand the protagonist does have rather a lot of powers. On the other hand, he doesn't have the classic super-strength and invulnerability (Hulk Smash!) so often he's forced to be quite thoughtful about how he uses his powers to resolve particular situations, which makes the story lines much more interesting. His back story makes him a real character, not just a person who got lucky in the power lottery.

Many self-published titles would benefit from the use of a proof reader. This book is one of those - but the issues are not so bad as to get in the way of enjoying the book.

I found this book and its successor to be very enjoyable to read. They're not quite in the same class as the "Wearing the Cape" series from a plot and character development point of view, but they're good fun.

If you like superhero fiction, give this a try.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible. 27 Aug 2013
By Carl
Format:Kindle Edition
One to miss this is a terrible book and very boring read the main character is very unlikable and unrealistic even for this world they live in really and way over powered has around 20 odd abilities and more on way by looks of it could of been good but wasn't it was terrible.

And as for the cost over £2 way too expensive and not even close to being worth it.

CAN NOT ADVISE ENOUGH TO NOT GET THIS BOOK YOU WILL ONLY BE DISSAPOINTED IF U DO AND WAIST YOUR MONEY...
