BOOK REVIEW // ZEROES

Saturday, 3 October 2015


Don’t call them heroes.

But these six Californian teens have powers that set them apart. They can do stuff ordinary people can’t.

Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days.

Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the rescue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. And at the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases.

Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series.


There are a lot of characters that you will connect with as they learn from their action packed adventures. It's good to see a book focused on friendship rather than relationships. It seems to be most YA books explore relationship themes. It's a rather realistic take on what it would be like if teenagers gained powers. The powers are also very unique. They don't suddenly become heroes, they try to learn how to control their powers. If you're impatient for a plot to escalate, then this is perfect for you as the climax is rather early on in the novel.
