This was a great middle grade read for boys. Really interesting story with plenty of twists and turns.
The narrative switches between several characters, it helps make for a more well rounded tale. You really get to see what each person's motivations are throughout the book.
There are several plot points that are lefts vague, no real explanation of the powers. Where do they come from? Why do only some people have them? What was the back story of Bronson and Cindy?
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Nathan Beatty, who does a great job with the pace. I enjoyed his read most of the time, it was just the villains I had a problem with. It would have been more of a surprise twist if the voices had been different. It was too obvious for my liking.
Overall this is a fascinating series and has great potential for tween boys and girls. Most of it comes from Bronson's POV but the parts with Cindy really mix in well. I cannot wait to see what happens next for these kids. There are loose ends still out there, but I am sure they will be tied in the next book.
