I love this book. I stayed up all night reading it. A nice change from the regular plot of heroes and villains.

LOVED the book, must have read it a bajillion times. Only thing I didn't like; the names. Lana, Leni, Lyle. Sam and Sliver. And all the other League/Vindico super-odd names. But I wrote down a mentor to protégé list and it really helped. (I had to use this book for the Forest of Reading thing my school does.) Can't wait for sequel!

This novel is truly an amazing read and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it.The Characters are so great, they all have different personalities and are very unique with different powers.

I thought this was a really good book. I enjoyed how the author put different points of view, letting us get to know each character and their perspective of what was happening. I think it would be a really good superhero/villain movie kinda like the X-Men movies!

Cool Author Fact: If WESLEY KING could choose to be any superhero, he would be Superman, because he can fly around the world and reverse time!

I like this book, but it needed a something. It was kind of sad that they didn't figure out that they were fighting on the wrong side though.

I thought this book was good but could have been better. This book reminded me of The Mark of Athena and a book I used to read called.NERDS. It reminded me of Mark of Athena because there was five characters narrarating both books. I don't really remember NERDS but I think it had the same superhero concept

Summary

Add a Summary

What if you could have any superpower in the world? But first you had to become a supervillain... Kidnapped form their everyday lives, five teens are given the chance to change their fate forever. Imagine being promised the super strength to take down the school bully, the power to read your best friend's mind, or the ability to make dishes wash themselves. But to earn these gifts, the teens must go against everything they've been taught their whole lives and join a league of the world's most notorious villains: the Vindico. Held captive in a remote mansion while being forced to train with evil mentors, the teens plot their escape. But when it becomes clear that returning to their normal lives is no longer an option, their only choice is to fight. In this darkly funny and action-packed debut, talented new author Wesley King introduces readers to a new breed of supervillain and delivers a fast-paced cinematic adventure that will pull you in from the very first page.
