review Super Powereds Super Powereds #1 100 Esser super beings Powereds as they are called have always been treated as burdens and second class citizens Though there has been ample research in the area no one has ever succeeded in turning a Powered into a regular human let alone a Super That is until now Note This is Book 1 of 4 in the Super Powereds web novel series Others will become available on Kindle as they are creat I have mixed feelings about this book The fact that it was originally written as serial shows when you read it all in one go It leads to some strange pacing for a novel where the big fight that comes at the end isn t even foreshadowed in the rest of the book leaving you feeling like it just came out of left field While it was usually entertaining chapter by chapter it doesn t uite build properly as a complete work I think it could have used a round or two of revision changing it from a serial into a novel As is it feels like the pieces were just gathered and published as they were I listened to it as an audiobook which of course colors my perceptions because of the narration The narrator s reading of women characters really grated on my nerves All the female characters were presented with a nasal or breathy or sueaky tone I appreciate the attempt to differentiate the voices but maybe it would have been better to let the storytelling do that This wasn t helped by the text itself which suffers from many stereotypical representations of women I rolled my eyes almost as often as the teenaged characters over these unimaginative characterizations Alice in particular was completely flat and uninteresting made entirely of tropes about rich girls It wasn t much better for some of the boys Hershel when not in his super form was the whipping boy of the story weak whiny and soft We re told he s intelligent but he seldom gets to display that and the comments on LARPing and RPG gameplay suffer from lazy stereotypes as much as Alice s poor little rich girl That said I can t just dismiss the work entirely The world Hayes created is compelling The powered vs supers divide is interesting and several of the characters had good arcs and engaging backstories My favorite character was Vince who is sort of the Paladin of the group I d be interested to know what happens to him but I m not sure that s enough to bring me back for further works in the series

review Super Powereds Super Powereds #1 100 M a curriculum designed to develop student with superhuman capabilities commonly known as Supers into official Heroes Five of this year’s freshmen are extra special They have a secret aside from their abilities one that they must guard from even their classmates Because for every one person in the world with abilities they can control there are three who lack such skill These l This is less Pup Fiction and written from those wonderful fantasies and day dreams that a young reader of comic books might have had in the silver age of comics 1970s ish when Spiderman and the X Men were on the rise When I was nine years old I benefited from a friend who had a wonderful imagination and was able to make up stories where he inserted us into the mix of superheroes Most of his were borrowed from his extensive comic book collection Stories could last for hours Too bad he s an optometrist today and not a writer This book sort of took me back there In many ways I am still like that 9 year old kid with a wild imagination and the ability to put words and pictures with that wonderful uestion What if we It s a good read The characters are rich There are shades of the great grand genre pulp fiction but also shades of the 1980 s prime time soaps There is a rich plot that if there is a fault takes a long time to show itself and links this book to the next one It s long which is a plus for me when it s good and I liked the characters There is action but there is a lot of action less action By that I mean the behind the scenes plots and twists Character secrets and stories and some relationship drama It s kind of a Soap Opera for Superheroes with lots of action or an action story with Superheroes and lots of drama the good kind I m giving it 5 stars but it s not perfect It gets five stars for smooth writing a well thought out plot an honest commitment to the Superhero theme and it s pulp fiction roots and interesting characters The down side of this isSometimes a little too much drama I did want to slap Vince and Nick a few times And Alicethough thankfully that was wonderfully managed There were also too many pretty people Okay I get it superheroes right Pulp Fiction right Whadya expect Maybe a Swamp Thing Goes to College guy I don t know or maybe normal Generally this is tolerable given the genre Girly girls that could hammer the be Jesus out of you Right out of the comic books and possibly one of the most stigmatized problems with the genre Men can wear armor and Suit up Women wear skin tight unitards They have a partyWhat will I wear GaspCALL ALICE NOW Generally this was cute and there were plenty of female characters who could put a whopping smackdown on your ass hurt a fellah On the good side it was an attempt by a MAN to make female action heroines feminine rather than women who fight like men then go cry about it He still might need to polish that up a bit Oh wait Vince isn t a girl maybe it wasn t so badToo much like when I was in college Booze Girls Parties I know what Guys want I know what guys want I know what girls wantinsert favorite 80s MTV music video here of course I can t say it wasn t completely unrealistic but then knowing what I know now if there college went like mine well there s a reason I m gong to school on the 30 year planOther than that this is fun worth reading You may need to respect the genre which does include racy combat oriented people even if they are thinkers All the drama of college without as many rocks in the romantic world and lots of fun battles and testsThere is also a great plot that is like the barrels in Jaws the first movie Once Suint and Pooper shot the shark with lines attached to barrels you didn t need to see the shark but when those barrels popped up oh boy adrenalin time You didn t have to see the shark to know it was there With this there are things going on behind the scenes and Haley has attached barrels to that plot shark that pop up now and again It is well done especially for a genre that prefers straight up bad guys and interesting Generally this is a nostalgic read for young adults and adults too much sex booze and violence WarningSex Booze and violence encouraged by the University um the science on this does not work out to be accurate as much as it mirrors reality sometimes I think it was too cavalier about alcohol but did not count off because it isn t too far off of society on that one Sex it s not dripping with itugh sorry for that visual They are of age but so youngYes obviousoly if your a geriatric father of an 11 year old girl like me it might tug a thread or two that ultimately pull on MY LITTLE GIRL WILL NEVER GO TO COLLEGE and That s it Home Schooling until she gets a PhD Still it s all conceptual and not unrealistic Sigh there I said it it sucks being a reading dad sometimes especially when you can read into thingsViolence this ain t your grand pappy s Buster Brown Comics these guys draw blood and break bones That is actually of a correction of a flaw in the genre but takin out a villain ain t always prettyGood read worth reading 5 stars which don t come easy from meGood writing good multi tiered plot interesting characters some gender issues but manageable some drama but meh and fun college hijinks Gulp A nostalgic read

review Super Powereds Super Powereds #1 100 Update 8232013 Professionally edited Knowledge is power That would be the motto of Lander University had it not been snatched up and used to death by others long before the school was founded For while Lander offers a full range of courses to nearly all students it also offers a small number of specialty classes to a very select few Lander is home to the Hero Certification Progra I m terrible at talking about what I like about a book What works for me depends a lot on what I m in the mood to be reading I am usually much clear about what I don t like so I want to preface this review with two statements1 Yes there are still plenty of proofreading errors throughout the book As of when I picked it up in late November 20132 I checked the book out for free as a Prime member and then bought it and the seuelAnd I think that sums up my feelings about the book pretty conciselyKnowing that this book started as an episodic web enterprise goes a long way to explaining what I consider the two biggest problems with the story the glacial pace and bloated writing This feels like an outstanding second draft of a NaNoWriMo project that needed one or two go rounds with the editing pen to trim some of the scenes that don t add substantially to the overall plotOne of the positives of the episodic writing is that you spend a lot of time with the characters The downside is that there s little economy of phrasing Combat scenes take up multiple chapters and it feels like watching Yu Gi Oh or for the older readers any season of How I Met Your Mother lots of words little forward motion of the storyThere s no narrative tension pulling the story along The stakes don t exist until the very last 10 15% of the story at which point something occurs that had no foreshadowing at all I believe the tension of discovery of what makes the kids special is supposed to be driving the story but I never felt it SpoilerNotSpoiler when the outing occurs it s not even the biggest news on the pageThe story was an uphill slog for the first three uarters I had no idea why it was taking so long for things to happen I don t know what kept me going throughout the book except that at some point I acknowledged that I had nothing else I wanted to read and perhaps the story just needed to unfold over the entire four books instead of this one By the time I finished it I was interested enough to pony up the cash and buy my own copyFingers crossed that Hayes has a plan that will ultimately satisfy

    (PDF/EPUB) [Super Powereds Super Powereds #1] Ú Drew Hayes This is an interesting book but a bit too simplistic for my tastes It tries very hard to be mature both with its plot and character's but never really manges to do that The talk and behaviour of most of the cast far too often reads like a 1415 year old imagines cool adults to behave and the same can be said of the general world building and plotting
