I thought this book is amzing
It was so A M A Z I N G!!!
“Infiltration” is book three in the continuing adventure of teen superhero, Kid Sensation. Although the Kid Sensation books are intended for a young adult audience, I feel they appeal to an older demographic as well. The only tricky thing that author Kevin Hardman has to deal with is the potential lack of suspense because he made his protagonist so powerful. Kid Sensation has way too many major powers. Because of that, I feel the villain in each novel needs to be equal or better so that the reader can feels a sense of suspense and desperation and maybe even a little bit of fear. The outcome of a clash between the hero and the villain shouldn’t be stacked in the hero’s favor. It should be just the opposite. Since Mr. Hardman has made Kid Sensation so ridiculously powerful, every story requires a truly powerful villain to keep the reader from taking the outcome of a clash for granted. So far, Mr. Hardman has not always gotten around that problem. Yet all the books have been enjoyable reads/listens.
Although you could enjoy book three on its own, I highly recommend picking up the first two books in the series and reading them in order. Finally, this audio book was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.
Any additional comments?
I listened to Terminus by the same author and I loved it. So I thought I will give this ago. However, I found that I preferred Terminus to this book. I think the reason is that Terminus is different where as Infiltration (kids with superpowers) is not a new concept.
I still liked the book, there was action/adventure, a little romance, mystery and suspense.
I would recommend this book to any one who loves kids/adults with superpowers!
Would recommend you read book one because you would end up having a lot of questions if you don't. There is no cliff hanger in this book.
The narrator was good. I felt I was listening to different people.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author.
This book is easy enough to pick up without listening to the previous ones. Kevin Hardman does a good job letting you know enough about the characters, their history and relationships even if this is your first book in the series.
The writing is good crafting the events that unfold, the story is well paced and I never felt board or confused about what was happening in both high powered combat or more mundane situations. The whole book is written from one view point character that keeps it grounded and lets you get to know the main character and their thoughts.
The characters are believable and despite them having super powers they seem to be people with their own goals and motivations. Mikael Naramore adds to this doing another good job lending each character their own unique voice, helping to keep the story both immersive and engaging.
One thing that detracts a bit from the tension is that the main character is more than a little overpowered and despite all the things that happens to them I never felt there was any real risk to them. Their power set gives them at least one power suitable to get them out of almost any situation. Yet as with most high powered superhero stories it is the risks to others which motivates them more than the risks to them.
If you like superheros then this book is worth a listen and I am happy with the time I spent listing to it.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
