    SoWrongItsRANDI {Bell, Book & Candle} rated it = it was amazing! This book was bomb! Simply put, it was fan-freaking-tastic and I loved every minute of it. I don't know about the rest of you, but I live and breathe comics; so if there's any chance of me reading a novel where the characters have epic powers - I'm going to jump right on it! "Do they even have CSI North Pole? Who the hell would find out" - Spencer What I loved the most about this book is that it's not your average there's-a-bad-guy-trying-to-take-over-the-world-and-you-must-defeat-him-because-you're-a-superhero tale. There's a lot more to it: from the exposition of one of the antagonists to Spencer being an underdog. Speaking of which, how often can you say that you were able to read from the viewpoint of a villain? Especially in a superhero kind of story? Not often if you ask me. It's more like we hear the villain being mentioned the entire time and then he suddenly appears at the climax of the story, and then is defeated. I'm a type of person where I like to understand the villain and know how he/she thinks and what motivates them. So basically I was delighted to read in Drake's point of view. The vibe I got while reading was sort of like the movie Kick Ass - sans the cape and tights; you know the heroes of the story are underdogs and don't really know what they're doing, but they still pull a Hail Mary and come out on top. "Figuring out some ingenious way of explaining how I crash landed in the woods that a) makes me sound badass, and b) convinces her I'm not an alien (unless she's into that) isn't working out at the moment." -Spencer Spencer has to be one of my favorite POV characters of all time. His voice was strong, full of humor and idioms, and he had a world view that I could relate with. With each new character I'm introduced to in every book, there's always something about them that doesn't gel with me. However Spencer could probably be my twin with the uncanny likeness of his personality. I admire his drive to find and rescue his mom, despite his dad trying to lock him away and his lack of powers. It shows true character; they say true character is shown in times of battle not feast. I can relate to his desire to just live normally, and his love/hate relationship with his dad...it's very real. His dreams/visions of his mother left me feeling kind of raw inside - I'm not afraid to admit I teared up a little. "Not sure how long Abercrombie and Bitch willo be arguing at the rental car kiosk before they notice I've bailed." - Spencer "I've never done drugs, but I seriously feel like I'm tripping balls right now" -Spencer Eric is the best friend a guy could have. He was hilarious but also a very loyal person. I loved that Eric always had his friend's back. Hurricane was also pretty bada**. Emily was...Emily. She was cool, but you already know it's going to be awkward at family dinners. I'm out of EMPs, paint cans, and places to bruise. "Sleep. I'm trying to kick the habit," I grumble "I see. More of the 'keep Spence in the dark and feed him shit' routine. Been there, done that. I should be sprouting mushrooms by now." - Spencer With the various personal relationships of Spencer that were explored, to the action and the humor, this book was truly epic! I'm not opposed to a sequel or another book like this (you hear that Russ Linton?!) This isn't just a superhero tale; this is a multifaceted story that will have you in its clutches. It's a story of a true underdog that comes out on top. It just goes to show that being a hero doesn't mean having powers, it means being brave and not afraid to take a stand just like Spencer. "A guy I went to school with. He's an expert and he's got plenty of reasons not to run his mouth." "School? You mean high school?" "No, I mean the Remote Academy for Ice Sculpting. Yes, high school."
