Summaries and Reviews
When Danny and Colin begin to experience superhero powers, they come to learn from their parents that the entire generation of superhumans were not destroyed in the great battle ten years ago and now must come to terms with their ancestry as well as the reality that others may want to destroy them because of it. description: Product Description: It has been ten years since the great battle that wiped out all the superhumans. Whether they all died that day or simply lost their powers and blended back into society, only one thing is certain: They are gone. Or are they? Thirteen-year-olds Danny and Colin have recently begun changing. How can they explain Danny’s newfound ability to move at the speed of light, or Colin’s surprising strength? They can’t, but their parents—the lost generation of superhumans—can. They have been watching and waiting for these changes. So have others—and not everyone is happy about the boys’ new powers. Some will do anything to stop them.

Michael Carroll delivers an action-packed story in the tradition of the Alex Rider Adventures and the X-Men, with enough twists and intrigue to keep the pages flying by.
