Publisher's Summary

Taking on supervillains has never been a problem for Jim (a.k.a. Kid Sensation). It’s what he’s been trained to do, and he does it well. Completely intrepid in the face of danger, he’s never shied away from a crisis, no matter how difficult the assignment or how great the menace. But now he faces a task that even he dreads: hunting down his friend and mentor, Mouse.

Initially hesitant to believe reports that his mentor has gone rogue, mounting evidence and his own firsthand observations soon leave no doubt of the truth: Mouse is now an enemy fully intent on destroying the Alpha League - the world’s premier team of superheroes. Taking him down, however, won’t be easy. Not only is he a brilliant strategist and tactician, but as the leader of the Alpha League, Mouse knows all of his colleagues’ tactics. Their secrets. Their weaknesses.

As the pursuit of his mentor becomes more frenzied and intense, it soon becomes evident that Mouse’s actions have dire implications not just for the Alpha League, but the entire world. However, despite being isolated and alone, Mouse is a formidable opponent who can never be taken lightly, and it soon becomes evident that even Jim’s incredible slate of superpowers may not be enough to stop him.

Best super hero series going!

Best super hero series going! My 17 year old son loves it. He asks me every once in a while if there's a new book out.

Better than the last one but...

Okay, so my kids and I really love this series and this one was better than the last book but there were a few things that we found really irritating. So, we weren't a huge fan of the incarnate side of the story in the last book and we were hoping to see less of Electra but she was a bigger part of this one and from the other reviews it looks like we aren't alone in wanting Jim end that relationship for good.... Myshtal is a much better fit and by far less demanding and jealous. It does always amaze us how slow Jim can be to figure things out but it does age him appropriately- teens don't fully think things through every time. Overall it was another fun ride and the narration was top notch as always! I love that these are pretty clean books with very little if any language, mild violence, and teen friendly relationships without bedroom scenes - there is some eluding to deeper relationships in older characters but so far that's as far as it goes (hoping they continue to stay clean). I can't wait to see what happens next!

Fantastic Ride on Excitement

Was a very good exciting story that just kept going till the end. I loved the characters and listening to Mikael Naramore does one fantastic job on reading and pulling you into the story.

Never really gets going

It just felt like this installment of the story never got out of neutral. I found my attention wandering while listening to it.

Much better than the previous, but needs more

It was a very good follow up to the previous novel, but did not clarify the ending as well as it should. The start of this one was a bit out of norm, it seemed as though it was going toward the A in YA but then backtracked a bit. That is not a criticism, just a curve ball, I don't read/listen to this series for adult content and I would rather sit through the teen angst version of a love triangle than what appears in to many overused sex scenes, which still contain teenage whining, just imho. So I am thankful Kevin hasn't gone down that road. The series is still fun and the cast is growing with some substance. I have a feeling this was the start of a new story arc and I really want Jim to make progress on the rest of his powerset, I don't mind an overpowered mc since he already is one.
Either way I enjoyed this book and expect the next to break some new ground. imho

Mouse appears to have gone off the rails

Jim's mentor, Mouse, appears to have gone off the rails after an incident in the lab where he was hit by a surge of some kind. After a couple of altercations at headquarters, Jim is starting to agree with Alpha Prime and the rest of the team that Mouse has gone rogue. However, the odd clues he keeps finding and with Electra acting increasingly strangely, Jim is sure there is more to Mouse's disappearance than the evidence shows.
I really enjoyed this latest book about Kid Sensation and the Alpha League. I found myself fully immersed in the world and didn't want it to end. My only complaint is that there is a little too much dry explanation and Jim sometimes talks like an old man rather than a teenager.

Isolated or with friends this is a great book

I love the Kid Sensation books and am always excited when a new one comes out. This series (and In fact the author) is the only one that I leave my comfortable genre of mystery audio books for and venture into the science fiction world because I know that what ever I am going to listen to is going to be captivating, entertaining and action packed. This book didn't let me down. I loved it. The characters are just out of this world, literally and on book 8 they feel like old family friends but the author keeps the series fresh by introducing you to new characters and bad guys. The author writes like it is a movie and I could very easily see it being made into a film or at the very least for tv, with so many twist in the story and action it would have to be a big budget production. I can't wait for the next book.
Jim aka Kid Sensation is busy attending parties with his friends and trying not to get recruited to a new super hero team, so he misses a number of phone calls from his friend and mentor Mouse. That is until he gets the message Mouse has gone rogue and is attacking his former friends and colleagues. Jim Is reluctant to believe that Mouse the leader of the Alpha team, the world's premier super hero team would turn his back on what he has built up, until he witnesses it for himself. Now he has to stop his friend, his mentor and more importantly the man who has taught him every thing he knows about being a super hero. Mouse knows every body in the team and beining the teams inventor he has the capability and knowledge to use there strengths and weaknesses against them. With each attack it seems that Mouse isn't on the run and In fact is working towards a goal. Can Jim work out what Mouse's plan is before he completes it? Or is something more going on than meets the eye?
Michael Naramore is one of my favourite male narrators and I am so glad he continues to voice Kid Sensation and his friends. He does so many different voices I think he might be a super hero called the voice.
