Hardman has continued to build up his heroic world. Kid Sensation is back in this third book. Naramore' narration, already great, has somehow continued to improve. I really think he is beginning to get into the swing of the series, and his enjoyment of the material really shows. The series itself is straitup popcorn chewing superheroics like you'd see on the big screen.
I do have one small nitpicky problem, and that is the way the story is set up. For the most part it seems very much like two seperate self-contained stories. They do tie together, but it just comes off like two short stories put together. Nothing wrong with that, I just think either idea could have been fleshed out into a full length tale to stand on their own. Hardman's writing is as fine and sharp as ever, and he is very aware that he might be writing for an audience that does not consist solely of adults, and he keeps it toned for a YA audience (just like most comic books). I would like to see Kid Sensation face a real rival of a villain later in the series, every hero needs a good nemesis.
Over all another top notch tale.
Get it, read it, love it.

What did you like best about Infiltration? What did you like least?
I had liked the first book of this series. It had some unique qualities to it. The combination of YA and superhero genre itself is quite unique and has lots of potential. Thus, after finishing book 1, I had high hopes with the next books. But I was largely disappointed with book 2. The actions of the "hero" in that book were illogical and the end was anti-climatic. I was hoping for a revive in this third book. But sadly, this one is even weaker. This is more of the same content from the previous book and doesn't really offer anything new. If anything, the villain in this one is so much weaker than the earlier ones and so much weaker than the hero. It's not even a fair fight.The characters too aren't developing anymore.
What aspect of Mikael Naramore’s performance would you have changed?
No complaints about the narration or audio quality.
Do you think Infiltration needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
There are already more books in this series, so this question is moot.
Any additional comments?
I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
The hero everyone loves to listen to and this the 3rd book is no different as we are taken in on a new adventure.
In this case an unknown enemy is after everyone in the Alpha League and Jim is trying to come to grips with his place in the team.
Soon Jim finds himself in the situation as the only person to be able to solve this problen as he infiltrates the enemy.
An enjoyable aventure if a little obvious and another faultless narration from Narramore.
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.
