Publisher's Summary

Despite having their secret revealed, the residents of Melbrook Hall return to Lander University for another year in the Hero Certification Program. Good thing the focus of this year is teamwork, because with their origins known, they'll have to lean on each other more than ever.
Now finally sophomores, their curriculum expands, allowing them to train in the majors that Heroes specialize in. The new classes will test their minds, bodies, and determination in ways never anticipated. In a year filled with the unveiling of secrets, unexpected entanglements, and, of course, super-powered battles, who will be left standing is anyone's guess. Because if all that weren't enough, more light is being shed on last year's kidnapping attempt, and the results point at something far bigger than mere rogue educators.
Something that isn't even close to being over with.

great second story

we continue to see our characters grow in unexpected ways. and new developments in their life outside of Lander affects their whole year. Kyle McCarley does a wonderful job reading and acting out every single character with their own distinct voices and personalities coming through amazingly.

Just About

What did you love best about Super Powereds: Year 2?

It builds a world, and populates it with some cool characters. And I'm not just talking about the main six Melbrook characters, but the 2nd and 3rd tier ones as well, both faculty and students. The story moved along, and I was invariably eager to get to the next part, however haphazardly I was listening to it (usually on the walk or bike ride to work). Looking forward to the next one.

What other book might you compare Super Powereds: Year 2 to and why?

It's a college Harry Potter, though using X-Men style powers. That's a good thing if properly executed, and by and large this is.

What does Kyle McCarley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kyle really does the different voices well. With the main six characters I can instantly tell who it is, even if the text doesn't immediately tell us. He's a fantastic reader, and is a huge impetus for me to experience the next book in audio form, rather than on paper or Kindle.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too long to listen to in one sitting, it probably took me a month or a bit less, there were very few days I skipped.

Any additional comments?

I knocked this story down a star because of the trainwreck that is Vince Reynolds. A naive, meek coward, afraid to hurt a fly. I hope to God that Book 3, which I've already downloaded, does something interesting with him, and that the events of this book change him, or at least make him evolve. He sucked.

Also, making Alice Adair hot made for some interesting visuals (I pictured Evanna Lynch ironically), but given that not one sober guy in two books has hit on her......well......just seems out of place.

It's ok.

I'm not sure who the story is meant for. It moves like a young teen story, it has lots of exposition like a young teen story but it has language and some content that absolutely isn't young teen. Despite these failings, but because of the clear world-view and pace of storytelling the book and its predecessor have found a place in my library. They are not challenging at all but are entertaining enough to listen through to the end with no regrets about the purchase.

awesome characters and all the little details

The characters aren't perfect, they have flaws. But they come to life with such detail.
The narrator adds a consistent and emotional support to the character allowing the listener to forget it is not a dramatisation.

Mostly good

Overall the book is pretty good. There is a bunch of fat that could have been cut out as the story can waffle on. Most of the characters are engaging with the exception of Nick who comes across as a typical Larry Stu making most of his scenes very predictable. Unfortunately, both the Nick issue and waffling are symptoms of the same lack of rigorous editing.

The performance was great with each character being read distinct.

If you enjoyed the first book then you'll likely enjoy this one. It's not great literature but it's still pretty good.

Absolutely love it

I can't get enough of the characters - Hayes did such an exceptional job at developing the characters and takes you on a ride during their sophomore year it's incredible. Likewise, McCarleys narration is amazing and one of the best I have encountered through my sci fi reading!

Can't wait to listen to the rest in the series and the spinoffs.
