Looking forward to a few days of rest and hanging out with his friends, Jim's downtime is interrupted by the unsettling news that Alpha Prime, the world's greatest superhero (and Jim's father), is missing. As if that wasn't bad enough, Jim finds his world rocked by an even more ominous revelation: his deranged half-brother, Paramount, has escaped from confinement in a maximum security installation.
In the course of investigating these events and trying to ascertain what connection, if any, there is between them, Jim becomes privy to information concerning a potent alien device capable of laying waste to the entire planet. But he's not the only one - an enigmatic villain wants the alien technology for his own purposes, and it's up to Jim to find a way to stop him before the world pays the ultimate price.

A book of Revelations!
For a YA book, this doesn't read like YA. My kids and I listen to it together, and we enjoy it immensely and helps us on our long drives. I have to say, this book really stepped up to the plate, and it reminded me of book 1. It had a lot of depth and characterizations that were well played, and the romance became believable. Some of the background/secondary characters finally see some action, and we have a villain who is a real honest to God threat.
One thing my sone pointed out was that Kid Sensation isn't always smart in the way he does stuff, or the way he reacts or over someone. I pointed out that that is exactly how teenagers behave. I even explained that just because one is smart or skilled does it mean that they will utilize their full potential all the time. For all his powers, Sensation is a falliable human being, just a teenager going through what all teens do. So it became a good learning life lesson, too. 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.
As always, Naramore does an amazing job narratiing, and I firmly believe that he elevates Hardman's work to a new level. I think this everytime I listen to him. This is a great series, and so far, it keeps getting better.
