Description

Powers are determined by geographic birth locations, and only the rich and powerful are permitted access to prized sites. SC is the first person born in space.

The punishment for unauthorized births is death. Out of fear, SC keeps his strange abilities as his darkest secret. He pretends to be nothing more than a mere Regular while his peers develop unique powers, varying from controlling lightning to producing diamond-hard skin. But when his mother is kidnapped by an unknown organization, SC has no choice but to act.

SC ventures into a school of talented students to learn to fight, where he must learn to master his powers without revealing their true nature. But soon he realizes that the school is more than it appears and that it may hold the secret to his missing mother. To rescue her, he will have to reveal powers never before seen in all of history.

By award-winning author Leonard Petracci, a master of tension and suspense.

Bug

Good story and fun to listen too.
the only bad thing is that chapter 87 repeats again as chapter 88.

a work in progress

I am all for a little wish fulfillment, but it was hard to get all the way through this book. the power system is in need of refinements, with the supers not being knowledgeable and testing themself to their limits. I was able to come up with many uses for the "lower" classed supers that would have made them more useful. the protagonist seemed to be ok...but went from being a control freak to a all out psycho. her powers got to be fairly annoying, and went from a low power she had to have repetitive use to make work, to an almost all powerful compulsion power.....had she been that powerful in the beginning, she would have indoctrinate each student coming in and been unbeatable. Hopefully the writer will grow and any further books will be better. the style of writing worked, and I will give them a second try later.

OK Story Made Better by Good Narration

The story was a little ridiculous at times. The world Petracci creates is unique and interesting, but the story he tells taking place in that world is a bit disjointed. The motivations and actions of the characters and some of the details don't really hold up under scrutiny. It was distracting, but didn't stop me from enjoying the book. I probably won't be looking for follow up stories set in this world or written by this author, but it was an enjoyable book, in that I finished it and was curious where it was going to end.

I thoroughly enjoyed the narration by Watt. Admittedly, the narrator's voice annoyed me at first, but I warmed up to it, and I enjoyed his take on the characters. He made the story much better than it should have been I think.

Not bad, but

Overall great story, but two chapters are the same and narrator skips the lost chapter.

couldn't finish

The idea of the powers is cool but there were a few problems I just couldnt overlook.

This dude can literally create black wholes; focal points of gravitational pull and pocket dimensions. and your telling me that he has to hide and cower 24/7. Sure when he was like 8 ok and hes still only 13 but he literally could have walked up to those two dirty cops that took his mom created a black hole inside theirs skulls and then subsequently disposed of the bodies into another dimension. Quite frankly there,s not a whole hell of a lot that coulda stopped this kid. But your telling me he spends a stupid amount of time trying to get into some school that is without question some crazy experimental shady as hell place that he also spent his life trying to avoid so he can learn how to fight with his powers....that he cant use... nor can anyone train him on............jesus -_- ...

A narrator can make all the difference

While quite an imaginative work it was the passionate and energetic narration that made this a fantastic listening experience.

I enjoy the story but it does skip over a part at the end there.

Good book

Fairly well written. The performance was great, though chapter 89 was just a repeat of 88 literally. Towards the end Star Child magically gains more power / change of power to let him easily fix the problem. The ending just felt like it was rushed and not fully thought out at times.
