"Where can you go if you’re…. different?"
In London lies an underground ghost station—empty and unused. Trains don't stop there any more, but if you look closely on the tunnel walls, you might just spot a grime covered sign for Brompton Road Station. Tucked away from the hustle of London streets, the station holds a secret—a government training facility for those select f

Well - slightly biased, but I would say it is a pretty good book. Book 2 is in the planning stage, and I'm looking forward to starting it!

This is a great start to a series, and I hope the sequels will soon available, because I'd love to know how the story goes on! True, this is completed, but there is potential for at least one sequel.
It's a wonderful YA story, with magic, and children and youths who are different from what is generally accepted as 'normal'.

The idea is great, and I was hooked from the first to the last sentence -- and I'm way past the YA age!
I imagine this could be a great hit with boys and girls: there's young

I really enjoyed this book! It tells the story of a quiet university student who tries hard not to be noticed. He doesn't want anyone to know that he's different. He spends his time outside of school washing dishes in a restaurant, and trying to avoid the bullies who torment him each day.

All of this changes when he gets noticed for his special abilities. Then he is invited to join a special group of people who have abilities similar to his own. He receives training on how to use his abilities, a

Straight up fun with a side of adventure. I highly enjoyed the read and am glad I was offered the chance to read and review by Tim Flanagan. I enjoyed it a lot. I liked how the story flowers and how it was handled. I liked how it had some action and a lot of thought behind it. I liked that there were several surprises in the story.

The author is straightforward in his writing and his adventure, but doesn't allow you to make the call for the entire story too early. Can't wait to see where he will

Excellent story!

I would recommend this book to any reader over the age of 7! The Savants are people with extraordinary powers. The main character can move faster than light. His whole childhood he has been trying to hide that power because it frightens the people around him. Found out what happens when he is "found" by a school that trains him to use his power for good. What an adventure!

I just finished reading Tim Flanagan's "The New Savants: Surge of the Red Plague." The world that Tim Flanagan has created is excellent. It is a place where a person who feels less than ordinary turns out to be extraordinary and is appreciated for the gifts and talents they have. The character are being well developed and I cannot wait to see what happens to them next. I highly recommend this book!

This is the first book in the series of The New Savants where the lead character is introduced with a puzzle to solve which leads him to a new life. The book does introduces the cast of the story and the hidden history of what we thought was a normal world. The book was entertaining read and I am looking forward to the next book.

Begins like the Alpha's TV show, with savant humans recruited for a Hogwarts-like London University. Instead of sticking to enhanced senses, like sight, hearing, touch, reaction time, it add mind-reading, pre-cognition and the Voldemort-like villain being raised from the dead. The author needs to decide if this is an enhanced humans story or supernatural powers story. Well written but I don't think I will read book 2 or recommend it to anyone else.
