Read on July 17, 2011

Ten years ago, all the superheroes disappeared. No one knows what happened; there was a gigantic battle against the supervillain Ragnarok, and then they all disappeared completely from around the globe. A decade later, a new generation is about to start asking questions--and getting answers.

What you have to know, and read this as, it a middle-grades book. The 13-year-old heros, the simplistic adults, and writing style make this obvious. Therefore, you cannot (alas) expect a story with a lot of nuances.

For what it is, though, it's a good read and delivers exactly what you'd expect. The protagonists are your run-of-the-mill boys who have suddenly got the fate of the world on their shoulders, there are plenty and fight scenes with liberal use of powers, etc. It's not a deep book by any means but you can finish it within two hours, so it's good for a short, light read.
