Summer’s over and Connor Connolly is headed back to school to start junior year. But with metabands falling from the sky, the world has changed overnight, and now there are thousands of new metahumans. Just like regular humans, not all metahumans are using their new powers for good.
Now, Connor’s not only dealing with the pressures of being a super-human and training with his mentor, Midnight, he also has to balance relationships with the people he cares for most. People who find themselves on different sides of the fence when it comes to their feelings about the new metahumans and the impact they’re having on everyone else’s lives.
As the world struggles to adjust to the events of the past few months, Connor’s alter ego, Omni, works with The Agency to apprehend law breaking metahumans, and detain them at the Silver Island Meta Detention Facility. When he’s recruited for a job assisting the government agency with disarming one of the most powerful and secretive metas in Bay View City, he never expects the devastation of that mission or the affect it will have on both humans and metas. Is Connor capable of becoming the hero he wants to be?

I desperately wanted to like this book (along with the first one).
The concept was an interesting idea; for the uninitiated, the series essentially asks the question, "What would happen if mysterious, silver bracelets of unknown origin started showing up by the hundreds and granting amazing and varying abilities to the different people to find them?" The concept is both practical and intriguing. It's practical because it gives you a relatively unique reason to have multiple people (heroes, villains, and the morally ambiguous in-between) running around with super powers. It's intriguing because the mysterious origin can go in so many directions and be easily explored as a sub-plot throughout one or more stories. Are these metallic bands part of some massive, international conspiracy to test new technology are humans? Are they some sort of divine gift, or perhaps provided by aliens as a means of making humans strong enough to be enslaved as military fodder for their...
Really good and interesting book. Normally I would give this book 4/5 stars. However, the lack of conclusion to any part of the story line resulted in a loss of a star. The book was continually developing and adding great twists but than it just stopped. It seems like the book ended halfway through. Most books leave a cliffhanger to get you to order the next book, this book however left nothing but cliffhangers. There was no conclusions or loose ends tied up at all. In my opinion it was a great book with a really poor ending. It left me feeling like I had read half a book and now have to wait to read the rest.
Almost didn't get this book after seeing the review that it ends on a cliffhanger... it doesn't ... not in the sense that I use cliffhanger anyway. As an analogy w/o giving any spoilers, the "cliffhanger" is akin to the shot at the end of XMen: Last Stand where Magneto moves a metal chess piece or Xavier speaking through a formerly comatose hospital patient. Doesn't really affect the main story but does T-up the next one quite well.
it is a "classic part 2" though in that the battle is won but the war still rages on. So... if that's too much of a cliffhanger for you... may be better to wait till #3. (it wasn't for me...)
On a grander level, I'm kinda wondering where Mr. Reynolds is going with this. For the most part all the meta are restricted to Earth... or at least our solar system. So since it's plausible that aliens dropped the meta bands they can do so w/o risking retaliation from us as the meta bands don't allow us to leave the solar system...
