Publisher's Summary

Astra has become one of the most popular Sentinels in Chicago, past scandals notwithstanding, and is now the team leader of the Young Sentinels. But on their first big solo outing, the new junior Sentinels fall into a new scandal - one which could cost them the team. And Astra has a dream visit from Kitsune, the odd shapeshifter-thief who precipitated the battle between the Sentinels and Villains Inc. the year before. The dream warns of a fresh disaster, in a town Astra has never seen before and that may not actually exist.

Astra's efforts to find the town from her dream leads to her "recruitment" by the shadowy Department of Superhuman Affairs, and she leaves the team behind in Chicago to learn more about the DSA's secrets than are good for her, face old enemies, and discover a little town called Littleton. Fortunately for Astra, "leaving the team" does not mean she's on her own.

Solid Super Hero Story

This was a fairly fun entry, if a bit confusing at times. Hope makes a good main character, much happier with focusing only on her. This has been a very enjoyable series so far.

Small Town-Big Heroes

Another great expanding book into the Astra universe where even a fictional small town needs Heroes.

Astra Takes the Lead

In Small Town Heroes, Harmon pulls his heroine Astra out of Chicago and off on her own in his world’s version of Cuba. She’s receiving visions of a town being burned to the ground and learns that it’s in Guantanamo Bay in a way that fits in very nicely with Harmon’s super universe. Castro has been overthrown in this world, replaced by a disturbing super-powered dictatorship. Add in U.S. military forces, top secret research projects and a couple handfuls of surprises and you have the makings of yet another great novel in the Wearing the Cape series.

There is a great mystery that forms the thread upon which the whole novel is built, and I found the solution totally satisfying. It’s also really fun to see the developing Young Sentinels team in action at different parts of the book. The team is growing in both size and experience and they are clearly going to be a lot of fun in the future.

If you’ve enjoyed the first books in this series, you’ll be pleased with this one. I also think it makes a fairly good jumping in point if you’re wondering what the series is all about.

Another good book.

Once again, Harmon knocks it out of the park. And the lady that is doing the narration is perfect for the job.
