Summary: Kenna is tired of being "normal". The only thing special about her is that she isn't special at all. Which is frustrating in a world of absolutes. Villains, like the one who killed her father, are bad. Heroes, like her mother and best friend, are good. And Kenna, unlike everyone else around her, is completely ordinary— which she hates.
She’s secretly working on an experiment that will land her a place among the Heroes, but when a Villain saves her life during a break-in at her lab, Kenna discovers there’s a whole lot of gray area when it comes to good and evil and who she can trust.. After all…not all strength comes from superpowers.
My Thoughts: I had heard really great things about this one so I went into it with somewhat high expectations. I really freaking loved it! We are introduced to Kenna who has grown up with a mom who works for Heroes. She develops things to help them! Kenna is working on her creations but Kenna is an ordinary. She has no powers. She also takes a serum to make her immune to powers. We are also in a world where there are villains. Things aren’t just one sided.
One night the lab gets broken into and Kenna’s life is put at risk. She meets a few villains and I loved one of them. His name was Draven and I adored it from the minute I met him! Whoa baby! Smoking hot with an attitude. And his character only got better throughout the book.
I don’t want to say much about this one without spoilers. Just know this… PUT IT ON YOUR TBR NOW!!!
I really loved this one, up until the ending and that is only because now I want the next book. How can the author leave us hanging like that? Oh man!
Overall: I loved this one! Probably one of my favorites this year. I can’t wait to read the next one when it comes out! Guess I should have waited after all! HAHA! I loved all the characters, all the bickering back and forth made it even more special! A must read!
Cover: Its compelling. I like it!
