If you haven't read the first book this review may contain spoilers
First Impression:
I can't pass up a story by Cheyanne Young. After reading the first book (twice) I couldn't wait to read this one. I need to find out what happened to Maci and her friends. I honestly love this series and I adore all the characters. The second in the series did not disappoint.
The Story & Characters:
The story starts after Nova has run away and Maci is now a Super. She is on probation for now and will be

In CITY OF LEGENDS, superhero Maci Knight found out that she has a secret twin, and she faced a terrifying question for a Hero--am I the evil one?? Maci still doesn't know for sure, and in THE VALIANT, the stakes just keep getting higher!

At first, Maci is left picking up the pieces after the last villain attack. She has a sister now, but they can't relate. She's finally a real Hero, but she's struggling with her missions. And she has a boyfriend, but can she hold onto him?

I LOVE how all the

personally, I think this series is getting better and better! this one for me is better than the first one. this book has more action, intrigue, and plot.

i cannot help but compare it to the first one. the first one was good but it was not as satisfying as this one. in the first one, Maci was basically just on hiding. but here we actually get to see her in action and with other people too. I just thought that this one has more contents for readers to gobble.

i love the plot on this one! quite far

I dunno, I guess I'm a sucker for the whole quiet introvert with a dark past who just wants to belong theme lol.
I said in the first book that I had hoped the whole twin thing would only be a subplot, but I'm not glad it wasn't, it was done well, and I really liked Nova.
My one gripe this time around
*spoilers*

Is that it ended kinda similar to how the first book ended. But, I'm sure the last book is just as good as the first two so I guess I can't be mad :)

Overall, another very fun read in the

I was raised by the greatest dad and the most caring brother ever. They took care of me, they nurtured me and taught me the ways of being a Hero. I know I have evil genetics; I can feel them every second of every day. But I am not evil. I choose not to be.

Overpowered, the second installment in the Powered series, goes into more depth, relationship and plot-wise, as Super Hero Maci Might fights to keep her recently rescued sister, Nova, hidden, while proving she (Maci) is worthy of Hero status.

This is the second book of the "Powered Trilogy." I really liked the first one in that it presented, to my mind anyway, a unique superhero universe. I mean most superhero stories just rip off the familiar DC and Marvel heroes, only changing costumes and powers a little. (Even I'm guilty of that, though intentionally so.) Basically the genetically superior "Supers" have their own nation inside the Grand Canyon where they live and use as a base to defend the world from Villains. In the first book, ...more

I read the entire trilogy of books in less than a week, and found it to be a fun, easy read. Reading it took me back to watching superhero cartoons on Saturday morning television.

This series is full of surprises and twists, so that while you may think you know where the plot is headed, nine times out of ten you are going to be wrong. But that just added to the reading enjoyment for me, as I am not a fan of predictable plots.

The characters are well-developed and likable. Maci is not your

Cheyanne Young does it again - writing a book that's light, funny, and suspenseful. This is the second installment of the POWERED trilogy, and I'm eager for the third. I really love Cheyanne's writing style, and the suspense isn't hokey to keep readers interested - it's well done and important to the story. The world she created is so vivid, I can picture the Supers in the cities and the transportation system. A lot of made up worlds can be over the top, but the world of humans, Supers, and ...more

Sibling Rivalry

The plot is pretty straightforward. The mystery takes the protagonists a while to solve, but readers should have most of it by the middle of the book.
The real challenge is how jealous Maci is of Maddie/ Nova.

I deducted a star for editing /proofing. Quotation from two different characters needs to be in two different paragraphs, dang it.
Still this book is better than the first.

Interesting world.

I very much enjoyed the story and would recommend it to others. Some of the science and morality needs more definition. And the concept that evil is Genetically determinable is stretching suspension of disbelief to its limits. That said the elimination of the supers liquid power makes little sense when it is shown to have healing properties for others.

Yay for the reread! Loved how so many more characters come together in this book, including, of course, NOVA. Can't wait to read book three for the first time now that things are on a roll!
