Summary

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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Meta to be better than the print version?

Yes Mr Reynolds performance was top notch and brought the characters to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Meta?

The equine Easter egg towards the end of the book had me grinning from ear to ear.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

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.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

It ain't easy being super.

Any additional comments?

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.

Loved it

What did you love best about Meta?

Loved the story, kept me engaged through the whole story.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was fairly easy to follow, and not completely obvious as to what would happen next.

What does Tom Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well spoken and brought more of the writers expression on how the story was meant to be told.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, because it kept my interest throughout the whole story.

Any additional comments?

I'm a fan of the podcast The Complete Guide To Everything, and so I thought I'd give Tom's book a try and it was pretty good. Great job Tom :) hope you have a second one in progress.

Skip the Audible Version, Go For Kindle

Any additional comments?

The story was okay; there were some general flaws with the pacing and what not, but it was still a fine diversion. The author should not have tried to narrate it himself, however. Every character had the same voice, and there were many times when I couldn't tell if another character had started speaking or it was still the original one, nor could I tell when the hero was thinking to himself or speaking out loud. There was also a lack of gravity during the action scenes, it was just being read out of the book flat. I might consider reading the second book, but unless there's a new narrator I wouldn't get the audible version.
