It’s been ten years since Connor Connolly lost his parents in ‘The Battle’; a fight between The Governor and Jones, two of the world’s strongest metas. Before ‘The Battle’ the world had been full of metas, super-powered humans whose amazing abilities came from mysterious wristbands. Since that day one has never been seen again.
Now 16-years-old, Connor lives in Bay View City with his older brother Derrick, a meta-obsessed blogger, where he’s just trying to keep his head down long enough to survive high school. All of that changes the night he attempts to save a girl's life and wakes up to find the first new pair of metabands anyone has seen wrapped around his wrists.
Connor soon finds an unlikely ally in Midnight, a masked vigilante who helps him learn how to harness his new abilities, while also trying to balance his summer job at the lake. As a meta, Connor becomes known as Omni, potentially the most powerful meta the world has ever seen, but it isn’t long before he finds out he's no longer alone...

New kid on the block writes like an old pro.
Yes Mr Reynolds performance was top notch and brought the characters to life.
The equine Easter egg towards the end of the book had me grinning from ear to ear.
I felt the final showdown was really well done and had me rooting for Connor without wishing to give spoilers all I can say is it was an intelligent and exciting climax.
It ain't easy being super.
I would normally have never picked a book with this subject matter up however being a huge fan of Tom's other audio work on the complete guide to everything I thought what the hell lets give it a whirl.I was shocked to discover a wonderfully engaging barnstorming tale of daring do.While paying homage to other comic book greats Tom also innovates and brings a raft of fresh ideas of his own to the party,with Connor we have a hero that we can relate to as he struggles to find his place in the world.
I have friends who enjoy comics or graphic novels if you prefer and one of their great woes is that once they finish one the urge to consume for is overwhelming.This is how I felt after finishing this wonderful romp if there were already more books in this series to buy I would have done so.I feel sorry for anyone discovering Tom's work in 20 years from now when he has a huge body of work behind him because they will be spending a fortune in a very short space of time.
