2.5*. The foreword mentions...sigh...Angel, Spike and Superhero romance...so why do I feel a bit conned?
on 26 November 2011
...Well, possibly as it kind of sounds like a bit of a made-for-TV, would-be X-Men type of material. There was no Spike, and no Angel, which of course I'd sussed there wouldn't be, but I thought that there might have been some characters a bit like them, i.e. Bad boys who are Good, but not really.
All that I can say about this book is that is was like X-Men@High School, complete with nice kids, disruptive ones, shifters, mind-control, empaths, learning to control their powers, forming little groups against authority...and a little teen romance, but just a little bit.
Not great, I had to skim-read to get to the end, but maybe a longer book would have had more potential.
