The Supers of Noble Green trilogy concludes in satisfying fashion with Daniel Corrigan taking on his archenemy once again.

As the truth is revealed about the students attending the local special academy, Daniel faces his toughest challenge--trying to sort out his feelings about Mollie who has her own superpower and can fly. The book is filled with plenty of humor, and while it helps t ...more

Now that there are “supers” everywhere in Noble’s Green, it has become a tourist attraction. They have even opened a school for those students: Noble’s Academy for the Gifted (Johnny Noble is the Principal). It’s a bit of an adjustment for the town. There are, of course, those students who aren't responsible with their powers. Case in point: there's a new gang that the supers must deal with. They call themselves Noble's Nobles and are led by Drake, Hunter and "Mutt". But when burglaries, vandali ...more

But Daniel is going back to normal school. But then their are many vandalisms in the town of Noble Green and Daniel has to get to the bottom of it.

Villainous is the third title in the Powerless trilogy. This book pulls the reader right into the town of Noble's Green and the horrible destruction occurring through fires and vandalism. Townspeople think its the children who have attained super powers. Without reading the previous titles, readers can enter the world of both the Nobles and Supers, opposing forces of children, through the prologue explaining how the children became Supers. Focusing on Daniel, supposedly a non Super, readers lear ...more

Villainous by Matthew Cody explains the adventures of Daniel Corrigan as he attempts to defeat Herman Plunkett for the second time. After the blackout, in the earlier book of the series, everybody in Noble's Green woke up and remembered that they had superpowers. A school was built for all of the kids who had just discovered their power so they could learn how to use them. The town started having problems. Daniel figured that the problems were being caused by Clay. He was wrong, it was a group o ...more

Daniel had many sides to his personality. this includes righteousness and intelligence. he was able to deduct and discover several key points that wouldn't have been revealed well normally. he also had the sense of righteousness when facing off against Herman at the end by not killing him.

Loved the last installment to this series. Villainous was nearly a perfect conclusion to the story of Daniel and his friends.
Satisfying conclusion to a well-written series.

Great end to the trilogy. But I don't want it to end! So good, keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The hero of this book is a kid named Daniel Corrigan. He's a normal 14-year-old boy who helps organize and deploy a group of kids with superpowers. But I have to wonder, is he really the hero? Or is it Eric, the one with Superboy-like skills who sacrifices his powers to save the earth?

I got this book for free at the ALA conference in Las Vegas. I didn't read it, because it is book 3 and I have not read the other books.
Great conclusion to this series! Makes me want to read the first two books again.
