Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Readers want more from a superhero trilogy than just a big fight at the end, and this clever take on psychic teenagers delivers a winning series of last-minute revelations and resolutions. Co-authors Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti waste no time kicking off the action, while emphasizing that it's the weird, tragic, and funny interplay between the disparate characters that makes this series special.

Because the authors withhold the nature of the monumental threat in New Orleans for a while, the opening chapters feel slightly unfocused. But that's a quibble. Nexus brings the trilogy to a highly satisfying conclusion, full of action, suspense, and heart.
