The Ascension by Michael Carroll - OPTIONAL

Carroll, Michael The Ascension (Super Human #2), 377 p. Philomel (Penguin), 2011.  $17.  

Violence: PG-13 (like Transformers violent).  

The supers thought they had succeeded in ridding the world of the evil Krodin, but in the blink of an eye, their world has changed and Krodin seems to have taken control, instead.  Some of the supers are on Krodin’s side, while others are still the opposition.  All of them will need to fight in order to have a chance at taking this SUPERvillain down.  

Time travel is always tricky – and Carroll just barely skirts throwing us down a hole we can’t understand.  The action/fight scenes will probably be enough to keep fans of the superhero genre going.
