    This story combines three different people together from across

    This story combines three different people together from across the world and from a wide range of time periods all coming together on September 11, 2001. 




    Robert Hamilton is a young boy who was abandoned by his parents and sister and is immediately put into foster care. It isn't soon after that he discovers he has supernatural powers and can can perform things no normal human can do. He has incredible strength, speed and the ability to fly. He even has a sense of right and wrong like any other great super hero they portray in the comic books. Rob eventually learns to use his greatest powers to help him live in harmony with his foster family. 




    The second character is Arif Ali who is a young Pakistani boy living in the United Kingdom and is constantly around radical terrorist behaviors. Arif is eventually recruited to become a terrorist. 




    The third character is Kim Hamilton who is a secret agent who has lost her husband and child with an eagerness for revenge against the al-Qaeda. She cannot let those who killed her family, get away with it and eventually she will learn, that it is this extreme desire that prevents her from moving on, and dealing with her grief. Kim inadvertently saves Robert Hamilton from a group of terrorists. Who would have guessed the bad-ass secret agent could end up saving an up and coming superhero? 




    Mark Wilson does a great job at bringing three separate lives into one coincidental event that everyone is a part of. I believe this book was categorized as a thriller, and I have to admit, that this perfectly describes this book. Sometimes, it's hard for some people, to read about events that seemed like they only happened a few years ago. I felt that this book did not disrespect 9/11, or over do the dramatics like I have found many other books to do. I felt it added great emotion and viewpoint for all varieties of readers to enjoy. 




    The only criticism that I have about this book would be the extreme lead up to the character Cara. She was a character that held no value to the story, but yet was written about in great lengths. I would have preferred that the use of those words go to other important parts of the story like bigger lead up to the main characters. Definitely not a big complaint, and I still gladly give it 5/5.
