This book is aimed at the YA (Young Adult) audience although I found it an interesting read.
Almost like the Justice League this dystopian world has two groups of heroes / anti heroes.
Five young adults are kidnapped by individuals with great powers. They are then advised that they have been chosen to be mentored and become members of their group who are the enemies of the famed League of Heroes. They call themselves the Vindico. The Vindico is run by the Baron.
The League of Heroes fights criminals to protect humanity. Their powers were specially developed to protect humanity and they are clear that it takes a special person to join the League of Heroes
The five that have been taken are matched to their mentors and the training begins.
Along the way the Baron advises them that in fact the league of Heroes are the bad guys and the Vindico is trying to return humanity to the right path.
There is lots of action between the five and their mentors and the Baron is always trying psychological methods to bend the fives way of thinking to his.
Is the Baron right ?
Is the League of Heroes good or evil ?
Can the group escape from the Vindico and warn the League of Heroes what is happening ?
Or do the five join the Vindico in defeating the League of Heroes ?
You’ll have to read the book to find out. Entertaining
