Ordinary (Powers, Book 1)

About the book:

Description: Having a superpower is ordinary. Your Power determines your entire life. But 17-year-old Ugene is Powerless. He can’t read minds or enhance his strength. He can’t manipulate natural matter or heal injuries.

Determined to find out why he is different, Ugene submits himself as a test subject at Paragon. But nothing is as it seems. All exits from the testing floor are sealed. Subjects endure brutal and sometimes deadly injuries. No amount of power can save them.

When his new friend Jade disappears, Ugene is shocked to discover why so many test subjects vanish without a trace.

Now, Ugene must choose between his own preservation . . . or the lives of countless other test subjects.

 

Review:

This book was really great. I loved how the author wrote this book. It was a great start to the series.

This I loved about this book:
– The main character. I loved how Ugene grows and develops throughout this book.
– The world-building throughout the book. The setting is always developing and becoming more complex. It was really great to see that the setting was never lost after the first few chapters.
– The plot development in this book. I loved the twists and turns in this story. It was hard to stop listening because I wanted to listen to more.
-I really loved the dystopian feel this book had throughout. It grabbed you in the beginning and never let go.
-The narration was brilliant. I loved how the narrator used different tones for different characters.

Things I didn’t enjoy:
-The book did slow down a bit in the middle.
– Ugene made stupid decisions for someone who was meant to be incredible smart. It was a bit weird, but then emotion may have played a part.

Overall, I enjoyed listening to this book. It was fun to listen to the world-building, plot development and watch the story play out. I found the book slow at times, but otherwise it was great.

I received this audiobook from the publisher and am leaving this review voluntarily.
