This is so far the only book I've ever refunded, and I have hundreds of titles in my library, I really found it that bad.
The world building and exposition is generally poorly thought out; there was an event which gave a few people superpower, but it's not widely known that it also gave a lot of people very minor abilities, yet the main character is genuinely shocked to discover this. In our world, when a piece of toast gets a weird burn mark shaped like someone famous it makes the news, how is it that people getting powers somehow didn't get reported all over the news?
The characters act a little like marionettes, in that they have no internal self consistency, they just do whatever the author needs them to do.
The characters often act in extremely illogical ways, for instance one character has the ability to control electronics, and uses his powers to rob banks, yet he has another of his team break open a vault BEFORE he decides to use his power and disable the systems, and no it's not some Machiavellian plan to incriminate his fellows, or an attempt to garner infamy.
The main protagonist is afflicted with the "I'm always right" syndrome, which wouldn't necessarily be a problem, if it was just a case that she thought she was always right; no, whatever snap judgements she comes to are always correct, and no this isn't her superpower.
All in all, I found this to be a terrible book.
