When the moment finally comes, Cosmo seizes his chance and breaks out with the help of the Supernaturalists, a motley crew of kids who all have the same special ability as Cosmo: they can see supernatural Parasites, creatures that feed on the life force of humans. The Supernaturalists patrol the city at night, hunting the Parasites in hopes of saving what is left of humanity in Satellite City. Or so they think. The Supernaturalists soon find themselves caught in a web far more complicated than they imagined, when they discover a horrifying secret that will force them to question everything they believe in.
Eoin Colfer has created an eerie and captivating world (part Blade Runner, part futuristic Dickens) replete with nonstop action, humor, and a spellbinding cast of characters.

lots of conflict, good pace
This was a pretty enjoyable listen for a family road trip (including my 11 yr old daughter and 14 yr old son). There is plenty of conflict, the usual good and evil stuff. A little too much moodiness in some of the main characters, but it kept all of us listening. The reader did a nice job differentiating the players, and it has a good mix of fantasy, sci fi, & drama.

You Have To Love Sci-Fi
Although I am not the biggest Sci-Fi fan, I did enjoy Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series immensely and thought that I would give this book a chance. I liked it. The story was really out there! I definately hope that this is not our future. But if it is, I hope the Supernaturalist are around to help us. I would recommend the book to children over the age of 12. There are some very adult issues (death, battle, and legal mistreatment of orphans). There is a very exciting twist near the end - I won't give it away - but it was a big, unexpected twist. I would recommend to others (over 12 of course). I would also highly recomment Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series. Delightful series for all ages. I dare say better than Harry Potter!
