A really good read,

This review is from: Superpowers (Kindle Edition)
I was recommended this by someone on a forum when I was looking for a 'coming into powers' book that was aimed at older people. Often I've found them pitched at high-school aged teens - 14 to 16 years old - which has frustrated me as I've got older, since I enjoy that style of story a lot, but am now looking for something a bit meatier.
This was absolutely perfect. Whilst not strictly a fantasy, it deals with a group of University students who all find themselves with superpowers after a storm one night - flight, super speed, telepathy, invisibility and super strength.
There are no traditional villains, it's just a very human story with the powers used as a catalyst to explore the lives and developments of these characters, set against the backdrop of the run up to, and short time after, 9/11.
It's a wonderful and very compelling read, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
