A very good read an interesting storyline cleverly written, my one negative would be it took an age to get where it was going, too much unnecessary information. This number one of a three book trilogy, I have just started number two, will report back on this and number three later.

I gave this a 3 star rating due to the quality of the grammar and a nice idea.
It failed to get more as the writer is one of those people who feels its okay to insult the intelligence of the reader.
He forces the storyline to occur by making the primary character behave in a completely naive way (One could say a completely moronic way) even after being shot by the bad guys.
It seems like modern authors feel this is acceptable as I see it occurring in far too many storylines.
Sadly it makes it a frustrating read and difficult to get wrapped up in the story.

Russel is your average teenager, attends school and has a 3.6GPA. He also has friends and family. But he has a secret. He suffers from insomnia, and cannot sleep until he has a midnight walk. Then one time, he sees something. It's calling to him. So he investigates...

Russ sees something miraculous. But it leaves side effects, and he isn't the only one who knows about it. Three other teenagers have also experienced it, hopefully they will have all the answers, but maybe they don't know enough to save themselves...

--- THIS SECTION CONTAINS SPOILERS---
Well written but the first half is boring because he was just discovering and exploring his new powers and nothing particularly high suspense or dramatic happened, and would give it around 3.5 stars for that part. However, it improved in the second half when the pace sped up, like when the Associates tried to take Mallory, and when Russ' nephew, Frank, was taken, and he had to go get him back. If the whole book was like that, it would have probably been 4.25-4.75 stars.

The subject of the book is really interesting, where finds a light show, and he gets some powers from the bizarre occurrence. And there is a secret organisation (the Associates) which want to hire every teen that comes in contact, and there is a little bit of romance, and allows you to comfortably discover the supernatural, without being too full on, and completely redonculous.

"Jameson gave me a steely-eyed look over his glasses. “We’re geniuses with superpowers.”"

It felt a smidge juvenile, as he is 15.5 in the book. Hopefully when he gets older, he'll be a bit more mature *fingers crossed*

Russ has been suffering with insomnia for a while now and the only thing that seems to help is a late night walk. During one of these walks, he witnesses a strange phenomena, lights spiraling down from the sky. Initially he thinks, meteor shower but when he hears nothing about it the next day, he's a little confused. Why wouldn't anyone else have seen or heard it?? Next thing he knows, he's contacted by a girl in his school and what he finds out changes his life forever.

This is a solid start to what seems to be a fun and energetic series. Karen McQuestion did great job setting the scene and introducing her fantastic characters.

Plot wise, it took a while to get going, but once it did, it was entertaining and fairly fast paced. The idea of the powers happening to the kids and what happens next was intriguing! We are left with a lot of unanswered questions though, which I hope will get answered in future books, like, what exactly are those lights? what do the Associates want? why do only some of them get powers?

Character wise, I liked Russ, he is a typical teen, though I did find it hard to believe that he was such a good teen!! My 2 teens aren't bad, but they aren't as good as him!! Lol. His crush on one of the characters was adorable too, though I did love seeing his friendship blossom with the other character more. Let's hope it's going in the direction I think it's going!!

Anyway, this was an enjoyable listen and I definitely look forward to more in this series. It captured my attention and I'm interested to see what happens with the characters!

Maxwell Glick made for effortless listening!! He did a great job with the characterisations and gave each character their own voice. I had no trouble following who was talking and enjoyed his narration.

I've got sucked into this, it's really not very well written at all. I'm sure if I sat down to write a novel it would be similar quality. However it's like one of those teen telly shows that are a bit rubbish but you get hooked on despite yourself.

It meanders quite a bit, the main character is a boy, but sometimes his thoughts seem to veer more towards the way a female teenager would think, not to be too gender stereotyped, but it's a bit of an inconsistent characterisation. Also there is a major plot point that is incredibly obvious, but presumably being saved for a later plot twist, it's just not very subtle. I'm also wondering if the main character is meant to be an unreliable narrator, a bit like Katniss in the Hunger Games, can't decide if this writer is being that clever though.

Clever to offer the first one for free, as I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know what happens.
