“I'm half way through the last book, Horde ... the characters have become like friends and I don't want to leave them. Thank you, Kevin, for writing this series. I felt like a kid again reading it. The series can be summed up in one word, ‘FUN.’” - Dale R. Bille
"...I've been teaching 7-12th grade English for nearly 20 years and my students continually ask for recommendations for their monthly Book Reviews. Books such as Kevin Rau's series are, not only, perfect for them, but for readers of all ages. They are high interest, exciting reads that are well worth checking out.
The only thing I don't like about the series is I've finished the first five and have to wait for the sixth. Number six, H.E.R.O. - Paragon, is due out any time now, so I won't have to wait too long. WOOO HOOOO!" - Triage IV
"...I've already read the first 4 books in the series and they keep getting better with each new book. If you're looking for some light entertainment with super powers, fun characters, action, and a good bit of comic relief, then this is a good place to start. >:) " - Tagadin
