And will the control they gained be permanent or will they eventually be turned back into their previous unstable selves? Who is really cut out to be a hero? This book took my reservations from the the first one, and resolved most of them perfectly. Seriously, if I were reading and not listening, it wouldn't bother me so much, but in the audio version it's beyond painful. I have been searching a long time for brilliant super hero books and I found them with Drew Hayes Super Powereds. Other than a couple of dream-state sequences that I could have lived without, the story just keeps you hooked the whole time. For one, that would be too much tension for this book and god knows we don't want that. This is not something along the lines of Spinoza. We were promised lots of tension from the reveal in the last book.
I like to have people I can ship together and hope to see changes with. He tries to write it in so there's clean up teams and everything but you'd basically have to destroy every single polaroid that every single person took at all the huge rager parties all of the students attended, plus any cards and letters sent home and love notes and records of study groups and. It leads to some strange pacing for a novel, where the big fight that comes at the end isn't even foreshadowed in the rest of the book, leaving you feeling like it just came out of left field. To view it, Pretty good follow up novel even better than the first one. Reading Corpies before I settle into Year 3. I cannot tell you how wrong it is to prejudge a book. I'll decide if he's special, don't keep telling me, that's bad writing.
My favorite character was Vince, who is sort of the Paladin of the group. One of the best I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. His quiet solitude can't go on forever. It's a fun, light-hearted read with a fun concept, an interesting cast and a story that moves it along. I love the characters so much.
This book is an excellent example of that. I enjoyed this book more on the re-read. I also enjoyed the development of side characters and their issues, especially Alex and Selena. The new classes will test their minds, bodies, and determination in ways never anticipated. Even on the re-read, I felt giddy reading those scenes.
They keep the world running, the food cooked, and the horses shoed, yet what adventurer has ever spared a thought or concern for the Non-Player Characters? I have been searching a long time for brilliant super hero books and I found them with Drew Hayes Super Powereds. A surprisingly good book, and a significant step up from the first book in this series. I actually cared about the characters this time around, and I felt like their motivations were much more compelling. The tropes are there but neither taken overly seriously nor too flippant. No doubt about that, make no mistake. I loved the second book.
I like his writing style and he makes me care about characters effortlessly. The world-building makes the world less sensical rather than more in this series. It's hard to pin down what he does want, if anything. So, I'm not a huge fan of off-brand super heroes. However, a new mysterious enemy has appeared, and the once legendary Titan might be the only one capable of defeating him. However one thing that become obvious with listening to the audio book is the authors horrible tick of ending each characters line with :. They have a secret aside from their abilities, one that they must guard from even their classmates.
Gary Karkofsky is an ordinary guy in a world of superheroes and supervillains. There's hints of coolness and sinister dealings in the background. The descriptions stop well short of erotic lit. . While it was usually entertaining chapter by chapter, it doesn't quite build properly as a complete work. Read 2016 Re-read 2017 This book suffered pretty much all the same standard issues as the first book but going into it expecting that, it didn't bother me nearly as much. I don't know what kept me going throughout the book except that at some point, I acknowledged that I had nothing else I wanted to read, and perhaps the story just needed to unfold over the entire four books instead of this one.
The plot thickens, and the world grows, and I can't wait to see what happens in the next couple of books and the spin-off. I should have picked up on that. The writing made them seem very young at first. Yes, the book is long but not as long as books 3 and 4 but it doesn't feel that way. That said, I can't just dismiss the work entirely. He spends much more time on the Nick character this time around, rather than Vince, which I was a little torn on, because I'm a big fan of Vince. This book flowed much better than the first.
