A solar powered girl. A ballerina vigilante. A boy with an alien sharing his brain. A girl with a black hole for her heart. And, a werewolf. This is the next generation of heroes Doc Silence has gathered together, a random collection of amazing kids he hopes to train to make the world a better place.
But Silence isn't the only one collecting super-powered teenagers. In the shadows, a dark organization — long thought destroyed — has been building a better monster, combining sentient hurricanes with car crash survivors, crafting designer cyborgs, girls made of fire and boys made of pure rage.
What is this mysterious organization's goal? And what does it have to do with Doc's past, and his team's future? Will Doc Silence have enough time to teach them to be heroes before they are called upon to save the world — and will his team be ready to accept the mantle as their generation's brightest stars?
The Indestructibles introduces Jane, Kate, Billy, Titus, and Emily— Solar, Dancer, Straylight, Fury, and Entropy — to the world as they learn how to use their bizarre powers. Along the way, they also discover something about themselves and whether they have what it takes to save the world.
Meanwhile, the mercenary Agent Black and the mysterious Rose find themselves pawns of a villainous organization who plan on changing the world, starting with the creation of a living, breathing, sentient storm system they're able to bend to their will.
The Indestructibles, coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
Classic Superhero Story
This review was originally published by Kurt's Frontier on Invincible Love of Reading.
Jane, a solar powered girl codenamed Solar. Kate is a ballerina vigilante codenamed Dancer. Billy has an alien sharing his brain and goes by the codename Straylight. Titus is a werewolf they call Fury. Entropy is a girl with a black hole for a heart. Her birth name is Emily. They have been gathered by Doc Silence to become superheroes. However, he isn’t the only one gathering super-powered teens. A deadly organization is rising again in the shadows, trying to create a better monster. Each of Doc Silences proteges will face choices as they battle the organization that turns children into monsters.
Matthew Phillion’s novel is a classic superhero story. The Indestructibles are a mix of kids with superpowers, and one whose abilities come from hard work and dedication. The author avoids many of the superhero cliches. Others, he jumps into some and splashes around a bit. The result is a fun to read novel. At the same time, it examines what happens when societal misfits find out that they can make a difference. The book is suitable for a YA audience, but adults will also enjoy it.
