The fourth installment of the critically acclaimed Super Human series
The defeat of the near-invincible villain Krodin has left a void in the superhuman hierarchy, a void that two opposing factors are trying to fill. The powerful telepath Max Dalton believes that the human race must be controlled and shepherded to a safe future, while his rival Casey Duval believes that strength can only be achieved through conflict.
Caught in the middle is Lance McKendrick, a teenager with no special powers, only his wits and the tricks of a con artist. But Lance has a mission of his own: Krodin’s ally, the violent and unpredictable supervillain Slaughter, murdered Lance’s family, and he intends to make her pay.
For fans of Steelheart and The Avengers, Hunter is an action-packed superhero story that is hard to put down.
Praise for HUNTER
“No one writes superheroes as good as Michael Carroll. With Hunter, Michael takes his flawed, all-too-human superheroes to the next level. One of my favorite series.”—Michael Scott, author of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series
“[HUNTER] is fast paced, exciting, and extremely difficult to put down . . . its unexpected, jaw-dropping ending guarantees anticipation for the next entry.”—VOYA
“A flurry of odd jobs (including time in a carnival), a brief romantic fling, and an intriguing epilogue make this appealing to all sorts of readers, and as always, Carroll delivers a super story.”—Booklist
The third installment of the critically acclaimed Super Human series
All Gethin Rao wants is to be like every other boy his age. But normal twelve-year-olds aren’t blue. And they certainly aren’t thirteen feet tall. That’s what happens when his superpowers kick in. And from that moment on, his life is never the same. Treated as a villain–a monster–Gethin spends the rest of his life on the run or as a prisoner in a secret military facility.
When he finally escapes, he falls in with a group of superpowered teens and becomes the one thing he never thought he’d be: a hero. But as the years pass by and he takes the name Brawn, Gethin learns that being a good guy is a lot more difficult than he thought.
Michael Carroll delves deeper into the life of one of his favorite characters and in the process gives readers his most satisfying, exciting adventure yet, which leads directly into his Quantum Prophecy trilogy.
Time-traveling supervillains and young superheroes in this sequel to the thrilling Super Human!
They thought him dead. After a battle of that magnitude, how could Krodin have possibly survived? But you can’t underestimate a time-traveling supervillain. Young heroes Roz, Abbey, Paragon, and Lance find this out the hard way when, in the blink of an eye, the world changes. At first it’s not all that noticeable. But something’s not quite right. Maybe it’s the smell of ozone in the air or the people acting strangely, like drones. Or maybe it’s the images of Krodin everywhere that confirms it: This is not their America . . .
Four thousand years ago the world’s first super human walked the earth. Possessing the strength of one hundred men, skin impervious to attack, and the ability to read minds, this immortal being used his power to conquer and enslave nations. Now plans are in motion that will transport this super human to the present, where he’ll usher in a new age of tyranny unlike anything the world has ever seen.
Determined to stand against them, using powers they’ve only just begun to master, is a ragtag group of young heroes. For them this first test may be their greatest . . . and last.
