The Reckoning by Michael Carroll


Carroll, Michael The Reckoning (Quantum Prophecy 3), 298 p. Philomel (Penguin), 2009. $16.99 Content: PG (Superhero violence).

Danny and Renata are safe in Sakarra, but stuck doing the USA miltary’s dirty work. When they attack another bogus target, the Trutopians have all they need to start a massive PR campaign against the New Heroes. Meanwhile, Colin is on the run and when the Trutopians hold out a friendly hand, he takes the bait and walks right into a trap. The stage is set and mayhem is about to ensue.

While the names and aliases, New Heroes and Old Heroes make following the characters kind of complicated, this chapter in the saga goes far in tidying up at least a few loose ends. Of course, there is more to come, and I am sure the adventure won’t stop!

MS, HS – ESSENTIAL.
