Rating: 4 stars.
Six teenagers discover that their parents are part of a secret criminal society called the “Pride”. After discovering their parent’s true nature, they head out on the run with only each other to rely on.
I totally enjoyed this series. Its nice to see another brand of Marvel superhero come to the surface, rather than the ever popular ones we see (X-Men, Spiderman etc). I liked the storyline and the way that it developed.
The characters have a lot more depth to them as they come to realize more about themselves that they never knew. Some come to startling realizations about their own power. It beautifully exemplifies the conflict these kids battle trying to understand right from wrong, with the feeling of betrayal of their parents. Lots of good laughs to be had as well.
The characters reflected a nice diversity, but I wouldn’t have minded if there had been a stronger aboriginal voice here considering how diverse they were maki
Recommendations: Most of the characters are around 16 years old, but one is about 11. So there is a bit of room for a wider reader base. There are some pretty interesting fight scenes here, so I’d avoid giving it to sensitive kids who don’t tend to enjoy things like that. But I’d happily give it to my middle schoolers.
