Brilliant and gifted, Mouse is a mental whiz who fails utterly in his initial attempts to join a superhero team. With his dream ostensibly out of reach, he eventually ends up working at an electronics repair shop, toiling in relative obscurity but seemingly content and at peace with the hand fate has dealt to him. However, a surprise visit from the Alpha League - the world's premier team of superheroes - changes all of that in a heartbeat.
Implicated in a crime that he knows nothing about, Mouse is forced to go on the run. Hot on his heels is not only the Alpha League, but also an anonymous faction whose motives are questionable at best. But despite a lack of discernable super powers, Mouse - adroit and nimble in body as well as mind - is determined to stay one step ahead of his pursuers.
It soon becomes clear that he is at the center of events with far broader implications than anyone ever imagined, and Earth itself is in danger. However, with few resources and even fewer allies, saving the planet won't be easy, and even a cerebral crackerjack like Mouse might be forced to admit defeat.

The Super Secret Origin of Mouse Revealed!!
Mouse is an amazing character, and really does deserves a series of his own. I'd love to see Hardman focus a few books on Mouse after he gets ready to lay Kid Sensation off for a bit. Mouse's origins are revealed here, and man was it worth the wait. OK, I would've been happy if it came sooner, but as it stands we are fortunate to get a good run with the guy. I have to admit, the story was a little short tom em, but that is only because I wanted MORE MOUSE!!!! After reading this you will feel the same way.
This book filled in some questions and played out as a world building exercise, making it perfect for the master Hardman to continue with more Mouse tales. (Sorry) What is nice is that this actually builds up the existing storylines, and is not a spin off for its own sake, there are reasons we get this book, and now that we have it I think we will be clamboring for even more!!
Hardman has a great knack for telling a compelling story, and creating interesting characters, and it makes me wonder just how long he had been sitting on this story. I can't wait for more Sensation, but this was a welcome distraction to a wonderful series. Naramore knows how to tell a story, too. He really takes on the personas of the characters he portrays, and adds a dash of life to them that doesn't come from the written word. He can keep reading this series until Kevin says he's done writing it! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
