Five millennia ago, the Super Human Krodin became the ruler of Egypt. He literally led his army against the powerful Assyrians destroying the enemy as he could read minds and possessed strength beyond a hundred mortals. After Assyria, other nations fell to Krodin's might. In the present, the adult populace becomes ill in a horrific pandemic outburst. The Helotry has begun its plot for world domination with spreading a disease and bringing Krodin to modern times as their adulated leader who will be dictator of earth. An insurgency surfaces that seems laughable; but shockingly they gain victories over the Helotry. This small group thwarting the powerful Helotry is teens with superpowers led by telekinetic Roz Dalton. This is an entertaining save the world thriller that pays homage to the Teen Titans of DC. Action-packed throughout, young adult readers will relish the teenage heroes battling the ruthless villains while their parents are ailing. Although the villains fail to live up to their reputation as callous and cold-bloodedly cruel (no Joker in the pack) and a romance seems more of a requirement (pet peeve of mine -others might like the relationship sidebar), this is a fun good superhero vs. bad supervillains.

Written by Michael Carroll, author of the Quantum Prophecy series, "Super Human" is a completely action-packed, suspenseful book! Like Quantum Prophecy, this book has super humans in it, and it actually takes place during the time in which Quantum Prophecy's main characters' parents are in their twenties. However, the reader does not have to read the Quantum Prophecy series before reading this book in order to understand it. Fast-moving, with not one dull moment, "Super Human" is a wild ride which is impossible to put down!

Super Human by Michael Carroll is one of the best books that I've read in a long time. It is the story of a group of misfit teenage superhumans (and some big time super heros) who come together to try and stop Slaghter and the Helotry from ressurecting the Fifth King. With a great prolouge, ritch well devoloped charachters, and a great storyline this book deserves 5 stars. I love the charachters in this book so much. They are so well devoloped and it is almost as if you know them personally while you're reading. Take Lance for inctance, on the surface he is a delinquint. He steals things, scams people, and dosent seem like he could do any good in the world. As the story progresses though you get to see more of Lance and realize that he actually has good intentions and he really is a good kindhearted kid on the inside. The storyline in this book is really great. It's complicated but not too complicated to wrap your mind around. You start off with a lot of questions in the biginning that will all be answered by the end. The biggest reason that I love this book is that all through the book it has you thinking one thing and when you get to points in the book it throws you a huge curveball and everything you thought is all of a sudden wrong. All in all this is the best book I've read in a long time and i would recommend it to anyone.

I borrowed this book from the library but it was fanstastic nonetheless. I like fiction in general and superhumans in particular, and this series quickly became one of my ultimate favorites. Carroll is an amazing author and keeps ou guessing even after ou put the book down.

this was the best book I read so far. it has so much action and adventure. every chapter had me on the edge of my seat. when I first picked the book up i couldn't put it down. i am in love with book.  i have never would have thought that little lance would rise up and become his own super hero. this book has thought me that you don't need super powers to defeat a villain. it has opened my eyes to see that police officer and firefighters are all super heroes in their own unique way. this is what made me fall in love with this book. the only book i ever read that i can get a clear message from. I cant forget about the only super villain i like krodin. he is the best at what he does and is power is amazing. the man has concurred nations with out breaking a sweat . this book just has it all with the characters i creates. so you should read this book it is the best book ever.

This book is amazing! It's got action right from the start and it finishes with it. It's great not waiting for a "good" or "exciting" part to come, because it's there throughout the book.

Picked up this book for my nephew since he was yet to read something this summer. I ended up getting this book for my nook so as to be able to quiz him and make sure that he read it and it was surprisingly good. Reminded me of my comic book days without the pictures...definately a fun quick read.
