Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Blake Norby
In the sequel to The Vindico (Penguin, 2012/Voya June 2012), the five teens are back with their newly formed super powers, and they are waiting to be able to officially join the League of Heroes. Unbeknownst to them, there is a growing rift within the League and a new fringe group hoping to replace the League. James, Lana, Hayden, Emily, and Sam find themselves once again caught in the middle of a war manufactured to destroy the League. The "Shadow people" are following the five teens and when they release the Vindico from the prison, the five friends have to work together to save the League and one of their own. Unlike the first book, this story is overly complicated and at times muddled. The relationships between the League members, the Vindico, and the Shadow people are unnecessarily confusing throughout the story until everything is conveniently explained at the end. While the action scenes are truly awesome and expertly written, the purpose behind the battles is unclear. The characters' voices are also not as strong in this book and often sound fake, like the author is trying too hard to sound like a teenager. It is unfortunate that this sequel does not stand up as well as the first book because this could easily be a series of books that creates a bridge between graphic novels and novels for teen readers. If this series continues, hopefully the storylines will get much clearer. Reviewer: Blake Norby
Kirkus Reviews
The lukewarm sequel to the tepid supervillain series opener The Vindico (2012) underwhelms. The five former protégés of the villainous Vindico have only two more months of life among the ordinary before at last being allowed to join the League of Heroes. The kids find their time in the doldrums cut short when they are attacked by a splinter group of the League--what gives?--and one of them, computer-genius Emily, is kidnapped by a mysterious third party who controls a team of superpowered Wraiths. Could her abduction be connected to the recent disappearances of League members? James, Lana, Sam and Hayden travel from one superbase to another in search of their friend, leaving a trail of wreckage in their wake as they fend off rebel Heroes, Wraiths and the Vindico, who are, predictably enough, released from their imprisonment to join the fray. King's sequel suffers from the same flaws that characterized the first book: bland protagonists, double and triple crosses that don't do anything but move the plot from point A to point B, less-than-compelling motivations behind the various villains' actions, overwrought dialogue and clumsy exposition. Readers new to the series will be lost in a thicket of comic-book names and superpowers, and even those familiar with the first book may find keeping track of the expanding cast a challenge. Ultimately forgettable. (Adventure. 10-14)

Meet the Author

Wesley King is the author of THE VINDICO. He has recently come to terms with the fact that his first career choice—jedi—may be impractical for the moment.  He is now embarking on his second choice—YA author.  After coming to grips with this choice, he found himself having an inclination towards the self-serving villains in the background of fantasy stories, and, with this newfound avenue for his own dark humor and fierce desire for super powers, he wrote this series. Wesley lives in suburban Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. Visit him at www.thevindico.com.

    Ugh.

    Which power? Technopathy, electrokinesis, empathy, weather control, or the kinetic speed that atoms vibrate control?
