    The author kindly autographed this book for me at the Eurocon in Dublin. I need to say that I had not read any of the novels which this collection of shorts accompanies, and I do not normally read superhero stories. I had seen The Incredibles which is a close match. I've also read Sophie McKenzie's The Hunted about a small group of teens in a government facility, going through a similar situation. This meant that there was plenty which I just had to take on faith, that there were people nicknami The author kindly autographed this book for me at the Eurocon in Dublin. I need to say that I had not read any of the novels which this collection of shorts accompanies, and I do not normally read superhero stories. I had seen The Incredibles which is a close match. I've also read Sophie McKenzie's The Hunted about a small group of teens in a government facility, going through a similar situation. This meant that there was plenty which I just had to take on faith, that there were people nicknaming themselves Shark, Tornado, Energy and so on, with odd powers which started abruptly and vanished abruptly a decade or so later, leaving everyone normal again. Until ... their children reached adolescence and developed similar powers. I had to accept that this had all been discussed in the books. The premise is not hard to catch and from the rag-tag tales (a school essay, a ghost story etc.) we can see that the earlier enhanced persons were capable of causing mayhem, helping people in trouble or creatively robbing. They are still around, normal parents, maybe living off mysteriously acquired income. The focus of the book is largely on the younger generation, so young adult readers should be happy. I particularly liked the ghost tale and the Shark's tale, which is the longest story. In general I feel concerned that superhero stories do not look at actual social or ecological problems, and do not place any value on human ingenuity and ability to problem-solve, which is what the planet actually has and needs. By making the original heroes suddenly normal again however, the author Michael Carroll is giving young readers a reason to keep on learning instead of telling them it will be all right, some day they will just naturally be able to fly. Irish people do tend to be more practical.

    I got a rare printed (and signed) version of tho book at SDCC 2014--I loved all the stories and they just gave little bits about characters that I thought were awesome! I can't wait for the 8th book in the series!

    A fun collection of short stories that make me want to read the entire series. Someone who is already familiar with The New Heroes might get more out of this book, but it works well as a standalone, and is a good introduction to the series as a whole.

    This book was awesome! It also just adds fuel to the fire on what a jerk Max Dalton is...
