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.
Jim is a normal teenage boy with all the usual teen issues to deal with, along with something extra, he seems to have more superpowers than all the other heroes put together and this doesn't make his life any easier. I really enjoyed this book and definitely didn't want to stop listening, unfortunately life got in the way and I had to take 2 sittings to finish.
Jim was such an amazing hero. He has multiple powers, and more arriving every day, which prompts him to try out for the Alpha League. While some of his powers are useless, he still hopes to become a member of the greatest superheroes ever. It's during his try outs that things start to go badly wrong and Jim finds himself on the run from the super heroes. He has to use every available power he has to evade them but manages to, for 2 years anyway! When he is finally found, his life will change forever, whether it's for good or bad though, you will just have to read it to see!
As I said, Jim is such an awesome hero. Being a superhero, you can't exactly be called Jim, so he changes his name to Kid. He has a plethora of powers, with more coming every so often, and I loved that about him. He may have been "special" but he wasn't arrogant or egotistical about it. He felt like a normal teen, with extraordinary powers. He was also so nice! All he wanted was to do good, but when the son of the most powerful superhero ever decides he doesn't like him, Jim has to become a fugitive. Even then, he still tries to do good!
Plot wise, it was fairly fast paced. I loved the sheer amount of superheroes, powers and indeed supervillians, we have in this book. Some of the powers were freakin awesome!! The author has really created an amazing world, filled with adventure, magic and powers. It's a world I can't wait to dive into again!!! Well written and developed, this was a truly entertaining read.
In all, I listened to this in a few hours and didn't want it to end.Read more ›

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.Published on 8 Dec. 2013 by Kindle Customer
