Fans of the hit TV show Heroes will love Quantum Prophecy!

Ten years ago, all the superhumans vanished. No one knows what happened to them--until now. Thirteen-year-olds Danny and Colin are shocked to discover that they are in fact the beginning of a renewed superhuman race. As they rise to take the place of the lost generation, the unimaginable truth behind the explosive final battle that occurred ten years ago between the superheroes and the supervillains is exposed. And when the past resurfaces, Danny and his fellow superheroes must face the new challenges that threaten their survival. On the run from everyone, and not knowing who is friend or foe, the one ability the new heroes are going to need most is the power to distinguish good from evil.

Does anyone know the name of the next book

I read the prequal trilogy first not knowing there was another series. After finishing stronger I relized that I was missing key plot elements. I went and bought the quantum series and I was very happy with my puchases. I am kind of glad I read them out of order because I already know the backgrounds and identies of the heros and villain. Aside from stronger I might even say to read super human and ascention first.

Is there gonna be a fourth book ? cause I really like quantum prophecy and its killing me that there isn't a 4 book.

I was recommended this book as a quick read and it turned out to capture my attention. The book starts off with a great opening scene and after that is followed up with constant action. The story line was nicely developed along with the plot. I loved how the author kept you guessing; he kept revealing new things about the characters all along the story, sometimes it would help you get to know the character better or it was purposed to change the story line completely. Overall I am very pleased with this solid book and I look forward to reading the next one in the series.

I am dieing for a fourth book but there is none. It is such a cliffhanger. I hope he writes another sequal

That is so unconvincing I want to cry an author who makes amazing books would use proper grammer and spelling. Also a good author does not reveal his entire next book beforehand. P.s if you truly are michael carroll (most likely not) that is the stupidest name fo a planet i have ever heard

I found Carroll's work two years ago in the from of Superhuman. It was the first in a group of three prequels to this series, and I was immediately hooked. Flipping pages as quickly as I could finish them, wanting nothing more than to see the resolution. I only recently found out about the original works, the Quantum Prophecy set. I'm still hooked. Mr. Carroll continues to thrill, and I can't wait to see this tale's resolution. I recommend this book (and the others in this series and the prequel series) to anyone who enjoys an interesting read and anyone who likes superhero stories.

I read asscension first and i'm glad I did. Superhuman's ending sent me screaming and I literally TACKLED my brother for Stronger,now I am DYING to read THIS!!!! The voice sounds so real I search the news for sightings of Brawn but, the ending leaves something to be desired. I would like more coverage on the time between the incident and when Hesperus and Thunder find Brawn in the forest from one of the others point of view. Also WHAT IS WITH THAT ENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope this has it
