Ten years after every superhuman vanished from the face of the earth, a new generation of heroes has emerged. Endowed with unimaginable powers, these young crime fighters are suiting up and taking on London's worst. But heroes become targets when the secret identities of Colin, Renata, and Danny are mysteriously leaked to the press. With their names and faces on every TV station and newspaper around the world, the trio takes refuge at a secret military installation that houses and trains a new crop of superhumans. Together, the three friends join the team as a new threat surfaces in America's heartland - one that will pit the heroes against the innocents they're trying to protect, and every action will bring Quantum's dark prophecy closer to fulfillment....

Ah, the superhumans are back and the action picks up where the first book leaves off. This is a really good read. Colin and his friends must continue their fight against Cross. This has a lost of suspense and a lot of action. The characters developed and one has to come to terms with a disability that he suffered in the first book. Colin also discovers that he has some hidden powers. I have to say, the powers he gets are fantastic! Not only does Colin and Co. have to face off against an old enemy, one of his friends, someone that he trusts with his life is betraying him and the rest of the superhumans. Not only does Colin have to deal with all of this, but there seems to be a cult that wants him and the rest of the superhumans to join it. But that's not all Colin has to deal with. At the end of the book, he has to make a choice that has no winning side. No matter what he picks, it has horrible consequences. A choice that will destroy him. Over all I really liked this book. I just had one small problem with it. Towards the end of the book, the cult isn't mentioned all that much. I'm sure they'll come up in the third book. I just wanted more of this cult. This is a really good series and I highly suggest you read it. This is a series you have to read in order.

The teen heroes are at it again! The identities of the superheroes have been revealed by an anonymous source and the heroes, young and old, are forced to flee to the brother of Max Dalton. Even there they are not safe as a traitor is among them! Victor is back with an eviler plan to take over the world. This book has twist and turns that you never see coming, and its hard to put down. Hope the third one is even better!

"The Gathering," by Michael Carroll is the second book in the enthralling Quantum Prophecy series. Packed full of action, with not one dull moment, this series is sure to absorb absolutely anyone! "The Gathering" is suspenseful, mysterious, and humorous---a tremendously fun, exciting adventure! The ending makes the reader want to start the next book in the series, "The Reckoning," immediately, to find out what in the world will happen next in this amazing series!

The characters are becoming well rounded and new characters are introduced. The story line flows extremely well. The new teen superheroes are outed and their parents are outed as well. To escape the circus their life has become they return to the United States and are taken to a secret facility where they meet other teen superhumans and continue training. But there is a mole and soon the secret facility is not so secret anymore and comes under governmental control. some of their number are lost and new alliances are made. I'm eager for the next book, due sometime in May.
