I LOVE IT SO MUCH (it's even more fun on a reread, especially reading aloud) AND I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOWWWWW!

Original Review:

(Review also posted on my book blog, here.)

Featuring superheroes with unique abilities, mysterious plots, and laugh-aloud humor, Lightporter is sheer fun. It’s a blast following the telepathic twin heroines and the rest of the agents at IDIA, as they face new threats—and secrets among themselves. A fun, thrilling read!

I’ve been looking forward to this

I've been looking forward to reading this book since finishing "Twinepathy" over a year ago (how's it been that long, by the way? I thought it was just a few months ago??) and "Lightporter" did not disappoint.

In the first book, you could tell that Blaze was the epitome of a mysterious character who has many secrets. Well, we didn't learn a ton of info in this book, but we did learn enough that has me content.

I really like the uniqueness of all the characters' different personalities and their

A good superhero novel is hard to find. Thankfully, the search ends here.

Though the second in C.B. Cook's IDIA series, Lightporter brilliantly avoids the dreaded Second Book Syndrome. This is partially due to an increase in writing quality and partially due to Albany's character development. While she still makes mistakes, she behaves with much greater maturity and much less stubbornness, which means I liked her better.

Though still told from Albany's perspective, a fair portion of the book cente

Not as good as the first, but I still loved it! It was so good to be reading about these characters again, and Albany is so relatable. 😊

Aw, guys!! <3 This book is pure awesomeness! (Though does it beat Twinepathy??) It totally kicks second-book blues!

First off, I used this pic in my review for the first book, and I am using it here because it is just as applicable.

If any of you have read my review for Twinepathy (or have chatted with me via clicky keyboards), then you should know that I ADORE Blaze. (no, you don't seem to fully understand the deepness of this) He is everything. BUT. Lightporter is a lot about him. Without delvin

Definitely needs a sequel--several tantalizing loose ends that could go interesting places (looking at you, (view spoiler)
I feel like a little more Albany vs. someone conflict would add another layer of interest beyond saving the world/IDIA/various friends from villains; there was a bit of that here with Blaze's secrecy, but it felt too resolved too soon (yes this is strange coming from a reader who usually hates conflict xD).

Good stuff:
• Really fun and cool in general
Honestly, this is just a hard book to not like. It’s fun adventures with superheroes, a lot of different settings, great characters and neat concepts all thrown together in a lil novel together. It’s a really light, awesome book to read if you want a fun story.

• Characters
Yeah, I’m always a sucker for characters, and this book has a whole boatload of really different, awesome cast members.
The twins, our heroic leads as always. Maddie is always adorable
I enjoyed this continuation of the story! It’s fun reading about the myriad of super powers, and I’m looking forward to the next installment!

There are too few clean superhero books out there. Enter C.B. Cook to save the day! We get to learn more about Blaze, which is great, and learn some hidden talents of Anvil's. Plus, there are a few new characters introduced that seem to raise the stakes. Definitely looking forward to see how things develop in book three... Anyway, this fast-paced sequel has all our old friends plus some new- friends, enemies, and mysteries alike. Perfect for fans of superheroes, secret agents, and my (adopted) s ...more

Time for a review.

Positives: CB Cook has managed to pull off a very fun world of superheroes. AND she's managed to bypass this secrecy thing from family (aka. Lying to family about hero work). I also thought we got some nice growth of characters, especially from our narrator, as well as a bit more information on the world. I also enjoyed the plot we had here, though I will admit I found it hard to remember what the main plot was (oops). It was light and pretty and just a fun romp through an adve

A fun action packed read with quirky characters and an awesome narrator.

I think it would make an excellent graphic novel.

Previously published on Purely by Faith Reviews.

I have a hard time finding a great and original superhero series. Most of the ones I attempt to read just fall short of my expectations. Lightporter was not the case this round! I was super excited to come back to the characters I had gotten to know in the first book (Twinepathy review here), and I wanted to get to know each of them more. I have to admit I really enjoyed this book more than the last one, and the title was so clever!

Note: this took me slightly longer to read than normal books because it was on my computer and I have to blog and stuff too XD not because it was boring ;) Also I finished this yesterday afternoon (6/12/18)

I really liked this book! I thought it was even better than Twinepathy! ;)

C.B's writing skills have improved even more since the writing of Twinepathy and I loved this book!

*unintelligible fangirling noises* I read this book within about 24 hours. I stayed up way too late, but I just couldn't put it down! It was so fun to see all my favorite characters again, and even have cameos from the ones that "were off on other missions". Not to mention the interesting new characters. It had a large cast, but that didn't bother me at all. C.B. Cook did a great job managing them all. I loved the way it built on Twinepathy. It wasn't just another of the same thing...

A fast-paced superhero adventure with a few twists and new faces!

Albany has learned to control herself a bit, and so doesn't completely botch her new mission: find out what's eating at fellow IDIA member Blaze. Questions are raised, a few answers given, secrets revealed, alliances tested, friendships solidified (rather than broken up, per soap opera/dark drama trend)!

Like Twinepathy, Lightporter showcases a unique use of superpowers; even "lame" ones are used to great effect. It takes a few trop

After reading Twinepathy last year, I was very eager to begin this new book to the series. In Lightporter, C.B. Cook takes the superhero world to a whole new level. A story of honesty, loyalty and trust unfolds before our eyes. In this new book we join both familiar and new characters as they fight for their lives, unaware of what lies just around the corner.

I was flabbergasted with how creative the superpowers were developed. I mean like seriously, that last battle was just jaw-dropping. To ke
