Review of Powerless by Tera Lynn Childs and Tracy Deebs

Kenna is tired of being "normal". The only thing special about her is that she isn't special at all. Which is frustrating in a world of absolutes. Villains, like the one who killed her father, are bad. Heroes, like her mother and best friend, are good. And Kenna, unlike everyone else around her, is completely ordinary— which she hates.

She’s secretly working on an experiment that will land her a place among the Heroes, but when a Villain saves her life during a break-in at her lab, Kenna discovers there’s a whole lot of gray area when it comes to good and evil and who she can trust.. After all…not all strength comes from superpowers.

Hardcover, 320 pages

Expected publication: June 2nd 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire 

The Hero Agenda #1


When I first started this book, I wasn't sure if I could get into the whole hero/villian thing. I love both authors so I had to give it a chance.
I'm so glad I did! This book was full of creative world building. The further I got into the story, the more interesting it became. The plot grows in complexity, leaving you breathless by the end.
Then there were the characters. It wasn't just about the main character and a love interest. The authors did such a good job breathing life into all the main characters.
I really hate reviews with spoilers, so this won't be a long one. This is a fun, action-packed paranormal romance for young adults. Anyone would enjoy it though.
After leaving the end of the book the way it was, had me wishing for more. I'm curious to see how the next book plays out in the hero/villian world these authors so richly created.
I have to give this book five glittery stars for being such a wonderfully unexpected gem of a read!

About the Authors:

YA pseudonym of Romance novelist Tracy Wolff.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where--and sometimes who--she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story--something with a rainbow and a prince--and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she'd read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she'd found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes contemporary romance and erotic romance as Tracy Wolff, paranormal romance and urban fantasy as Tessa Adams and young adult novels as Tracy Deebs.

Tera Lynn Childs is the RITA-award-winning author of the mythology-based Oh.My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp, the mermaid tales Forgive My Fins, Fins Are Forever and Just For Fins, and a kick-butt trilogy about monster-hunting descendants of Medusa that includes Sweet Venom, Sweet Shadows, and Sweet Legacy. She has published two e-novellas, Goddess In Time and Pretty In Pearls, and self-published her City Chicks sweet chick lit series. Tera lives nowhere in particular and spends her time writing wherever she can find a comfy chair and a steady stream of caffeinated beverages.
