Product description

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.

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.

This is a world where super powers are not quite as uncommon as our world, it is a cool mix of YA and superman.
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.

How have I not heard of this before!! This book was so much fun and even though it's only about 5 and a half hours long, it's chock full of action, adventure and super powers!!

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.

A prior reviewer noted this authors overuse of statements in brackets. This did annoy me but other than that the book was well edited. The story flows well and keeps a good pace. I don't have a problem with the amount of powers the main character has as this is explained by the end of the book. I Gould the plot a little lite and predictable but expect this is aimed at teens rather than nearly 50 year old men who have read a LOT of super hero genre fiction / comicbooks. All in all I liked it and am downloading part two.

I really enjoyed the first instalment in what I hope will be a exciting and action packed series. I definitely have to go straight on to the next one. This is well worth reading all you fantasy fans.
