Blurb: The Champions can’t seem to get a break. With U.S. victory at hand in the Cold War, enter the Scale, a deadly adversary determined to perpetuate the global arms race, nuclear war be damned.
Reginald Perry, shapeshifter and survivor of the last generation of Champions, knows the Scale’s ruthlessness too well. Ordered to assassinate a Champion in exchange for his life, he is desperate to reunite with his old team. But his mortality is failing. And watching him is the Scale’s leader — warder of his medicine and a clairvoyant whose blood-red eyes see all.
Janis’s own clairvoyance shows a teammate slain. A possible future, she tells herself. One that can be altered. On the backdrop of escalating global instability and a Champions Program fracturing from within, she and Scott must race to hunt down the Scale before becoming targets themselves.
But will their supernatural efforts be enough?
Review: This was one of the most action packed ones in the series, good lord. Still enjoying myself, still being kept on the edge of my seat. I am loving this entire series still and I’m sad, so sad that I just have one more book to go.
Of course, being meant for the teen variety, so pretty simple on the details to get right into the action of it, but I’m so in love with this series and I’m 28. I know that I am very invested in this series and I want so much more. I just want to keep reading.
This far down the line, there are going to be spoilers, so here’s your warning.
!!!WARNING!!! SPOILERS AHEAD
I was shocked at Creed dying. Oh my goodness. My mouth dropped. I couldn’t believe it.
Finding out that Techie was Wayne was…not that surprising even though I kind of feel like it was done for shock factor. Like maybe the author didn’t want to make yet another character, especially with pretty much the same things as Scott, but he’d already set Wayne up to be a dillweed of the highest degree. It does make sense though.
Shadow killing herself also felt like shock factor, like I wasn’t expecting it of course, but I don’t know if that was the only way to get her out of the picture? I don’t know, it shocked me so it worked.
The cover for this one kind of feels like the first one, not very eye catching and maybe it’s the two people on it instead of just the one because then it looks like they were just photoshopped together?
I really did not like the way Margret was acting. You would think that being in service to her country, like her dad raised her, would get her in gear, but she’s more concerned with her own life and her own schedule?
No matter what though, this series has been good to me, there hasn’t been a book that I’ve disliked yet and I have a feeling there won’t be. Get yourself into the X-Gen series and experience it for yourself.
Thank you for reading my review.
