Stephanie Quinn, Lance Casey and Rael Stromm have been friends for years. They spent a lot of time together, so when Stephanie's Dad insisted the boys accompany Steph to the mall it didn't seem THAT strange. The boys loved being with Stephanie and the fact that she was hot just made it more fun. What they didn't know was that Steph's Dad knew there would be a meteor shower that day and it would change their lives forever. Supers were common in Metrocity. Stephanie, Lance and Rael's parents were supers. When the meteor shower hit, it changed these young people into supers. They were each thrilled to be new supers and couldn't wait to join the H.E.R.O. program. All three worked out and ate healthy but now they had super powers to contend with. This is their journey into the new them.
Kevin Rau does a beautiful job of laying the groundwork for future books about these three and other supers. It is interesting to learn how supers are 'made' and how they deal with their new changes. I never knew being a super could be so profitable too. *smile* This book shows the good and the bad of being a super. The characters leap off the page. I can see movies and comic books about these characters. The most wonderful thing of all is, they are positive. They aren't just beating the bad guys the supers, at least these three, really want to help. You'll enjoy this book even more if you are a fan of supers already. I found the story delightfully well written and filled with some surprises. You can't go wrong here. This series will be addictive, in a good way!
I found one issue.. *sigh* the killing of a Mustang. I don't condone senseless violence toward Mustangs and I can completely see how it was an accident, but still, held a moment of silence for the Mustang that gave it's life. *wink*
I gave this one a resounding 5 out of 5 books because I think we need positive characters.
