Description

Kenna is tired of being “normal.” The only thing special about her is that she’s isn’t special at all. Which is frustrating when you’re constantly surrounded by superheroes. Her best friend, her ex-boyfriend, practically everyone she knows has some talent or power. Sure, Kenna’s smart and independent, but as an ordinary girl in an extraordinary world, it’s hard not to feel inferior. 

So when three villains break into the lab where she interns, Kenna refuses to be a victim. She stands her ground. She’s not about to let criminals steal the research that will make her extraordinary too. 

But in the heat of battle, secrets are spilled and one of the villains saves her life. Twice. Suddenly, everything Kenna thought she knew about good and evil, heroes and villains is upended. And to protect her life and those she loves, she must team up with her sworn enemies on a mission that will redefine what it means to be powerful and powerless…

Amazing

I loved it completely 😍

Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, this story is character and action driven,

I was excited by the premise of this story: finding strong female characters who are also able to kick butt and take names is always a joy, and Kenna certainly fits in that group. The decidedly black and white (good and evil) world that she inhabits has Heroes, Villains and the Normals: those without any great outstanding qualities. And Kenna is tired of being a Normal. Much like a well-developed character in fiction, Kenna soon learns that her world, and everything that she believed, is not so clear cut: not everyone is all good or all bad, and this story follows her discovery of all the shades of grey that exist in the world.

A wonderful discovery and adventure as Kenna, with a stellar cast of supporting characters including Draven, Rebel and the gang were pithy, fun and clever and the action is both well-placed and solidly detailed. Humor and dialogue are highlights in this story, keeping readers well informed of developments, emotions and the progress (or lack of) that happens. Plenty of twists throw spanners in the works, and the characters work to overcome or adapt, adding tension and a fast-forward pacing to keep readers engaged. A romance is budding between Kenna and Draven, and is taking its first steps to more: perfectly balanced and paced considering all of the tumult around them.

Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, this story is character and action driven, rather than relying on a great deal of world building, but this does not impede understanding or enjoyment: the characters really ARE the stars of the show, and Kenna takes up the mantle of chick in charge with flair. This book made me happy, and while there was a sort of cliffhanger to end, there was enough information hinting at things to come and keeping me interested in what comes next. Childs and Deebs have started a fun series with this book, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
