The Awakening is a fast paced book with tons of action, more than what's in the Gathering. It's a lot more satisfying than rolling eyes at the horrible plot of The Gathering. (Rolling eyes, after all hurts my mind after twitching all those muscles.) The Gathe ...more

The kids are manipulated and controlled from every side, and public relations battles are waged about the motives and goodness of the heroes. Their parents wonder how much to tell them, and the public and the heroes themselves worry if no pe ...more

I loved that this book had action and you could see the story from other people's point of view. It's like X-Men, only the main characters are younger and a bit more relatable. We met ...more

Where in book one it is about certain teenagers discovering their abilities book two is about them joining together. Just like Super Friends. Ok not just like Super Friends but I couldn't help but think about that every once in a while.
I have liked both the Quantum Prophecy books but this book was even better then the first. A fun read for sure. ...more
Jump into the lives of very young teens that are to inherit hero abilities after their superhero parents lost theirs. Follow the drama and action that unfolds as they battle against the evil master mind. Unsure who to trust as even friends can turn against them unwittingly, manipulated by super villains.
A must read to all who love a good super hero story.
Well done Michael - I look forward to conti ...more
Obviously I'm going to get "The Reckoning" but I'm way more excited for "Crossfire". Is it here yet?
The new superhumans are coming to terms with their abilities. Will the rest of the world be able to accept them? And will all of the heroes use their powers for good? You have to keep reading to find out!
This is definitely a bordering on YA juvenile book. Some violence (though of the comic book smash bang grab variety ... not gore).
On the whole though, it's another worthwhile entry into the series with some good action. I just want to see the New Heroes really cut loose and fuck shit up.
1.Butler Redmond- can create force fields.
2.Mina- can see person’s aura
3.Yvonne- control person’s minds.
3 mutants that has been added here is such a lame. I hope Mr. Carroll added some more. Old super humans are resurfacing. Quantum’s prophecy of Danny is slowly making sense. Solomon Cord is such a smart guy. This book is full of twist. The plot is somehow great. I wish many events had happened inside their Sakkara base.
This sequel to The Awakening is full of action, death defying, courageous moments with a mix of scenes filled with sadness, anger and determination. This is a perfect series for teen readers and young adults. This is one of those series you race to the library in the middle of the night to get the next book. I will not wait to get the third book.

That's a glue gun." Razor replied.
Wow! How's it work?"
It's not a weapon, Col. We use it to glue things to other things.”
The man coughed into the dirt. "Who...who are you?"
Who am I?" Colin replied. He had been waiting for this moment. "I'm the the one bogeyman is afraid of. I'm the new face of justice. I'm your worst nightmare."
He crouched down, leaning closer to the man. "You'd better warn the rest of your low-life friends that there's a new hero in town. You and your kind wont be tolerated any longer."
Colin stood up and folded his arms. He wished there was a breeze that would make his cape fly a little. "Who am I? I am Titan."
And that was when one of the other muggers hit Colin across the back of his head with a plank of wood.”
