Overview

Book #1 in a series about teenagers that were tampered with as babies - injected with a combination of drugs that were designed to leave them with super abilities. Over time the teens start to find each other, form a team, and search for answers and the man who did this to them. Likened by readers to X-Men and Heroes, Invisible Justice is a contemporary take on teenage super heroes.

Sam Dixon is a fairly typical teenage boy - great parents, active school life, pesky sister - with a nice life. That is until it is turned upside down when he begins to experience crippling flashes of pain that take over his entire body. It doesn't take him long to realize that these moments of burning torture are changing his body's makeup and leaving behind extra abilities - heightened senses. His new sight, hearing, touch, taste and sense of smell give him powers beyond anything he thought possible.

A random meeting at the local hardware store connects Sam with another teen - Leesha Conway - who has also experienced similar flashes, and a very different but powerful ability - telekinesis. As they compare notes and try to make sense of what is physically happening to them, a mystery unfolds. Each clue they uncover brings more questions to the table, and thus begins the search for the person that is responsible for both the pain and the powers left with them.

Dr. Carl Blevins is the man they seek, the one who can give them all the answers. His medical education, combined with his special unit military training, has given him the knowledge he needs to play God with people's lives. His goal is to create an army of super humans equipped to do his bidding.

Blevins' past experimentation on adults - conducted in clinical trials during a military research project - ended in death and disaster. Not wanting to give up, he transferred his medical practice to obstetrics and, unbeknownst to the military officials that pulled the plug on the dangerous experiment, restarted his work on newborns. The combination of dormant drugs he administered in the neonatal unit was designed to kick in as each patient's body matured fully, allowing them to realize their added potential.

As Sam and Leesha look for answers, they discover a list of other teens who could be just like them, and find two more to add to their research team. Lexi, Sam's twin, experiences her series of flashes shortly after Sam's are nearing the end - and finds her gift is the ability to make her body transparent. Clint, the fourth to join the team - and unaffected yet by any flashes - is mysteriously sent by the evil Dr. Blevins to help in the team's efforts. Little do they know it has always been part of Blevins' plan to reunite his kids to work together as a unit.

The four work together to uncover a number of professionals who aided in the medical experiment seventeen years ago, which leads the team on a cross-country trip to interview a pathologist that may have valuable information and ultimately lead them to Dr. Blevins. The teens combine their powers to search for the truth, which takes them down a dangerous journey, but one that is filled with new bonds of friendship and camaraderie.

    Great Read

    This was a good story and it was free. The story was interesting and fun to read. It was so captivating that after reading it I bought the sequel Brute Justice right away and continued the story. I enjoyed it just as much and was disappointed when the story ended, because I wanted to keep up with the young adults as they make their way. So I hope she continues the storyline. Ms. Jewell keeps you going and hopes she continues to write more.

    Plausible supernatural plot, a real mystery full of super twists

    I really enjoyed this read. It starts off by immediately grabbing you into Sam's first painful catalyst moment. I've read a number of the other reviews and disagree with many of the points.

    I don't find the character's flat. I loved that Sam hears voices, worries constantly, gets excited over the changes he's going through and challenging himself all the time. If I was a teenager with super powers I'd be the same. I thought it was realistically portrayed in every aspect.

    The author gives a solid sense of place and surroundings, you are drawn into Sam's world and relieved for him when he meets Leesha. Getting the answers from the future valedictorian had to be so cool. I'm not a a teenager but have read YA books many a time, and found this one a really engaging read. I loved the plot and genre. I'm a fan of Fringe and X-men and although I know this book was written before either of those hit our screens, I still think it falls into the similarity genre (especially the military aspect of the plot).

    The man behind it all gives me the sinister heebie-jeebies. This is definitely Fringe for teenagers, something to definitely fire up imaginations. More than this what I like about this book is that it reaches developing minds. Who knows what our full potential is? I'd like to think reading about telekinesis would encourage a teenager to at least try and move something (the power of our will and word and all that). Also, 90% of every atom is empty, so scientifically what Sam can do is perfectly plausible. A book like this opens a developing mind to the world of quantum physics in the most exciting way.

    I found it a gripping read, saturated in human potential, exciting, oddly realistic and a great read for any teenager.
