This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
X-Men meets Heroes when New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti to create a sizzling new series filled with “cinematic nonstop action,” (Booklist) romance, and adventure.
Don’t call them heroes.
But these six California teens have powers that set them apart.
Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days.
Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the rescue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. At the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases.
Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series.

This book was on fleek! Like I can't even comprendo how someone can make this book so amazing!!
Disappointing. Great premise but too many characters and a lack of emotion all around.
This wasn't the best book I've read, but it has lots of potential. It was refreshing to see something else other than the generic superpowers, and I enjoyed every bit of reading about them. The plot was awesome, it felt fresh and gripping all the time. The characters were relatable and each one brought their own kind of charm into the story. Character development fell short, though. Connections evolved between three of four pairs of characters, but the rest were never explained and it made me feel sort of unsatisfied when the book was finished. Some individual characters had a lot of growth, and others barely had any growth at all. It all felt uneven. When I heard this was only the first book of a trilogy, I was extremely happy because there was now a chance to tie up some loose ends. All in all, this book really deserves a chance. Happy reading:))
