This sequel to The Vindico has an unusual name: The Feros.

Ferris Bueller reference. Just roll with it. ♪Bow bow, chick chicka♪

The five protégés are living normal lives and counting down the days until they can join the League. We are informed that it's been months since they've all seen each other and for some reason they plan a reunion/slumber party, which gets crashed by the Flame.

The rest escape, except for Emily who doesn't actually have powers per se as much as she has an understanding of

I loved the vindico and I'm so excited to read this! It comes out in June but I get to read it next week! Yay can't wait!
Probably more of a 4-4.5, but I'm feeling generous. ;)

When trying to sum up why I love this book (and its predecessor, The Vindico), I finally came to an apt comparison: superhero movies. When they're done well, I love love LOVE superhero movies. "The Amazing Spider-Man," the "Iron Man" trilogy, "The Avengers..." (okay, DC, I loved Nolan's Batman movies too, but those aren't quite the same). And superhero movies like these are great because they have great characters, a nice blend of action and
This book is better than the Vindico! It was amazing. If you are asking how I read it, Wesley King gave it to the librarians at The Festival of Trees (a reading program) and he signed it. My mom is a librarian, so she got to read it. But I took it and devoured it. It was an amazing book. Can't wait for the next one.

Teenage super villains-turned-heroes James, Hayden, Lana, Emily, and Sam return in the sequel to The Vindico. The supervillains have all been locked up, and in just two months the teenagers will be allowed to join the League of Heroes. What could possibly go wrong before then? Everything, naturally. A new, shadowy group of villains seems to be hunting the teens; the League of Heroes has split in two; and once again each of the teens must decide what to do with the powers that were forced on them ...more
When I finished reading The Vindico by Wesley King, I was so happy to find out that there was a sequel. This book was really good. I just didn't want to stop reading it. There are parts where you can get confused, but it all comes together. This book was really good, definitely a favorite.
Steve Phillips
I'm cutting and pasting, for the most part, my review of The Vindico. The Feros is #2 in the series.
Like The Vindico, this book is pretty dumb. And I read the whole thing, so you know it was sort of fun anyway. I don't recommend it for anyone older than about 13, in fact, I'd say this is a pretty strong book to recommend for tweens, especially reluctant readers. Once again the young teens (now almost magically superheroes) end up in the bad guy's hands and then kick their butts. If you're willin
Marcus Leong
Wesley King did a great job blurring the line between heroes and villains, and illustrating the point that what makes the eponymous Feros the heroes they become, is simply innocence.

As the Vindico have had their limelight in the first book, only a select few played important roles; instead much emphasis is placed on the new young heroes, and the history of the League of Heroes is also duly explained. Every character has a rightful amount of importance, which contributed to the teamwork dynamics

After all of the adventure in The Vindico, James and his group are back. They now call themselves the Feros, and are still struggling to find their place within the League of Heroes. They are careful not to abuse their powers so that they can become full members in a few months, but problems arise. At a reunion hosted at Hayden and Emily's house, Flame causes an altercation and hauls the kids off. Since Thunderbolt is in hiding, they don't know what to do, especially once Emily and another hero, ...more
Awesome superpowers. Check.

Nonstop action. Check.

Fun characters with witty dialog. Check.

A must buy book that anyone looking for an entertaining super powered book. Check.

I’m usually a sucker for a superhero book, but even I have my limits. If it doesn’t have strong relatable characters, the plot has holes, or its just plain bad writing then even I wont like it.

Luckily, none of these problems happen in this book.

In fact besides the nonstop action (who doesn’t like to see Hayden and James smash t

Even better than the first one. Once again, another amazing novel by Wesley King. The Feros is humorous, action-packed, supenseful, and has some pretty amazing twists. The 5 kids are nearly done waiting until they get to be in the league. It is a real struggle for each of them not to use their superpowers. But when one of the kids, Hayden (who really embodies King's humor) holds a reunion party, everyone goes to his house. But when the League attacks them, they run and manage to escape. But when ...more

Wesley King has done it again.
Our quintet of heroes introduced in "The Vindico" are back in King's follow-up YA novel, "The Feros".
And the first lesson our group of teen would-be heroes learns is that crime-fighting isn't always easy, even if you do have super-powers.
Having beaten their former teachers, the Vindico, our heroes are eagerly awaiting induction into the League.
But all is not well.
Questions of belonging, self-doubt, guilt, and fear soon begin to surface in our teen quintet, as a new
Wesley King’s unlikely teen superheroes from the book “The Vindico” are back in the sequel “The Feros.”

James, Hayden, Sam, Emily, and Lana are only months away from being accepted into the League of Heroes. All they have to do is lay low and not use their powers, especially in Public. But when the team gets back together to just hang out for a bit, they throw a party at which they are ambushed and forced into using their powers. Now a group of rogue heroes are trying to arrest them, and they see
the golden witch.
So, I kind of wrestled with this one, guys. I'd been looking forward to "Feros" ever since I heard "Vindico" was getting a second book, but it feels like this book has a bit of middle book syndrome going on. Or so it felt to me. I feel like this one could have been a lot stronger, but King chose avenues where that just didn't happen. But that's okay, as this is a really solid sequel to the first book (and my standards can be ridiculous sometimes), and that certainly doesn't disappoint. If you li ...more

I'm sorry if my rating is a bit low, but this book wasn't my cup of tea.
to start off, i usually don't like superhero books anyways, so it's not really all that personal. i mainly read them if they are hilarious, and even then, they're kinda iffy. i just found the feros to be pointlessly boring. the main characters seemed to waltz randomly around to multiple different sides of the US. also, the fact that the military was not involved shocked me, because, i don't care it it's 'superhero business',

It was enjoyable, but it was a much weaker book than the first one in terms of story and writing.
One of my new favourite books! For those of you who haven't read it, you haven't experienced a flawless book. I feel bad for Avaria. But I'm glad that Wesley King focused more on Emily in this book as he barley mentioned her in the Vindico. I felt the title of the book to be okay, he could have gone with something more like the protégés return or something a little less cheesy than my idea.... They don't even mention to thunderbolt that they want to call the,selves that. And it's mentioned maybe ...more

I want to give this a 4.5 because it's really close to be a favorite. There are a few too many cheesy moments where the author has to prove or remind the reader that these are teens, but otherwise the writing is solid. I also am not a fan of endings where the bad guys just spell everything out to their victims, I feel like it's a cop out and too neat and tidy. If the why of the story could have been woven in better I would have given it a 5. I'm guessing another one is on its way as this easily ...more
Some book series have a fascinating first book, but then their second book is boring and not nearly as good. However, this was not the case with The Feros by Wesley King. The action starts almost immediately, with lots of battles and plot twists. There was also much more character development, and all the characters felt more "real" in terms of their thoughts and emotions. This was an excellent book to read.
I'm currently reading the Vindico and now I just spoiled myself after reading the synopsis. (lol!) But who cares? I'm head-over-heels EXCITED for the Feros. I cannot wait for it. Wesley King may be new to the author world but his books is so well descriptive it's like watching a movie!
When I first read the Vindico I thought it was an ok book, however every time I reread It I like it better. The Feros was a pretty awesome continuation of the idea and I liked all the characters. It was a little sad but for the most part a very good book.
I wanted this book to be good but it wasn't . It is about a bunch of teenagers who gain super powers in the last book and then fight some other guys that have super powers. Kind of dumb. I won't read any more.
A great sequel to The Vindico and just in time for summer reading! I finally got a hold of our copy after both my daughters finished it. A fast-paced, roller coaster ride that you will thoroughly enjoy.
I'm pulling the plug on this series. To paraphrase the Silver Surfer: "Where soars the Feros...there they must soar alone."
