Powerless by Tera Lynn Childs & Tracy Deebs is the 1st book in their new YA Hero Agenda series. When I read the description of the book, it appealed to me and I decided to read it. WOW I am glad I did. I really enjoyed Powerless, as it was exciting and a fun read. It is a YA story, in a world of Superheroes and Villains, and a perfectly fun book for adults We meet Kenna Swift, our heroine, as she is working late in her mother’s lab. Kenna feels inferior, as she is powerless, which is rare, as she comes from a strong family. Her mother is a renowned scientist and her deceased father was a powerful super hero. Kenna has been taught to hate and fear powerful villains. While working late night at the lab, she hears a noise and before she can do anything 3 of those feared Villains are in the lab. They tell her that they mean no harm, they are trying to find one of the villains brother, who they claim is being tortured by the super-heroes. Kenna does not believe them, and stands up to the three Villians. She turns out to be a tough, sassy, fearless heroine, even if she is powerless. The three men escape when Kenna manages to sound off the alarms. Kenna begins to suspect something is not what she believes, and accidently finds the young man who is missing being tortured. What will follow is an exciting adventure, where Kenna will meet up again with the three young men, as well as her best friend, Rebel and an ex boyfriend, who is a tech geek. Together they try to beat the odds in fighting the unknown superheroes who may just be the villains after all. Kenna will begin to see that not all the good guys are truly good, and not all Villains are bad. The last 1/3 of the book was a hold on to the edge of your seat exciting climax, with many surprises and twists. There was also a budding romance that was developing between Kenna and Draven, one of the Villains. This did not go too far, but I expect more from this couple in the future books. Powerless was a fun and exciting story, which I feel all ages would enjoy. This is the start of a wonderful collaboration between Tera Lynn Childs & Tracy Deebs. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

Superheroes. The only word I needed to hear to want to pick up this book. I love books about superheroes. There is something so fascinating and elusive about a great superhero novel, so different from comics and movies. I can count on one hand the superhero books I've really enjoyed. Well, Powerless pulls off the superhero theme pretty well. Kenna is a great heroine- she is clever and used to standing up for herself in a world of men and women who are much stronger, faster and generally better at reading minds than she is. But Kenna does have one trick up her sleeve - she is immune to superpowers. Which comes in pretty handy when a group of villains break into the top-secret hero lab and demand information. But there is one other complication - the villains don't seem all that villainous. Secrets are exposed. Things are blown up. People are kidnapped. Kenna is going to quickly learn that there is a whole lot more to her world than she thought. While this was a fun read, I was left with a few unanswered questions about the hero and villain world. For example, do humans know superheroes exist? This was never explained clearly, but perhaps this will be expanded upon in the next book. Also, the very absolute and almost stereotypical divide between heroes and villains seemed a little unexplained. This too, I'm guessing, will be explored in the following book. Overall, a fun read. The publishers provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Fun action super heroes and villains book, but not much world building. There isn’t much down time in Powerless. It starts with a bang and never really lets up. The Good: Kenna is tough and smart. She does spend too much time thinking of tall dark and villainy, but I still liked her. And there was a little sprinkled humor throughout the book, which I always appreciate. The side characters were so good I kept wishing to hear from their point of view. I loved her best friend Rebel! I think she’d have made a great protagonist. She’s just so much fun! And maybe a villains point of view too! (I know a book is good when I have a wish list for next time!) Kenna and her potential love interest bicker almost constantly at first. I prefer banter, but they grew on me. Considering the book only takes place over three days their relationship didn’t feel too quick. (The intensity of her feelings by the end was a bit much for me though.) We get minimal world building, mostly what we learn about super powered people is in the prologue. I wish there’d been a bit more, like why some people are born with hero powers and others villains and what makes them different. The Bad: It didn’t bother me but this is the sort of book where she rarely said says, but gushed, spit, etc. Kenna also has a habit of repeating herself. (Which did annoy me.) There’s a plot hole near the end, where a previously strong character is suddenly exhausted despite not doing anything.  I also feel I should mention the amazing number of times our ‘heroes’ failed. And the partial cliffhanger ending. (I would’ve read the next book. You didn’t have to torture me like this!) Overall: A fun book with good characters, though the plot was nothing special. (Almost all action) Point of View: First present (Kenna) Predictability: 4 out of 5 (Where 1 is totally unpredictable and 5 is I knew what was going to happen way ahead of time.) Source: Netgalley
