If you know me at all, you know that I love superheroes. I pretty much watch all the superhero shows out there at the moment. And Marvel? Well...
And Powerless? It was freaking amazing! Not only is it one of the best superhero books out there, but it’s also one of the best books I have read EVER! In fact, I’ve read this book twice already :) It’s just that good! It started with a bam (almost literally, too, hehe) and the action did not let up!
I loved the concept--I mean, everything Kenna knew about this world she’s lived in her whole life is turned on its head. Heroes are villainous? Villains are not as bad as you thought? What?! It’s insane.
The execution of this... trope, I guess you could say, was very well done! Both of these authors are great storytellers on their own, but together? Magic!
The characters were also amazing. I loved Kenna! She is just so tough and independent and just relatable! And don’t even get me started on Dark-and-Scowly--I mean Draven. I adored him! *swoon* And all the other villains were fantastic, too! I mean, are they really that villainous? ;)
I am definitely Team Villain! Most heroes in this book are a bunch of pricks anyway.
And the plot twists? They left me with my head spinning, but in a good way! I could not believe some of the things that were happening! It was just insane! The scariest villains are definitely the ones who actually think that what they're doing is for the greater good.
Overall, I thought this book was fantastic! It was action-packed, had awesome characters with equally awesome powers, and insane conspiracies that brought a ton of tension to the story. I loved this world and enjoyed reading every single page of it!
