Publisher's Summary

Four teenagers with superpowers. Some friendly competition. A first love. And a dangerous organization that will stop at nothing to destroy them all.

After surviving a danger-filled trip to Peru, Russ Becker looked forward to a laid-back summer spending time with his new love, Nadia. But plans go awry when he and his friends are invited by the Praetorian Guard to the event of the season. The mission? To protect the president and her daughter from assassination at the elegant Presidential Black Tie Bash.

While Nadia struggles with her own troubles at home, Russ is torn, but determined to do his job, not easy when he doesn't know who to trust. Battling for his life against the evil Associates, Russ confronts his worst fears and learns shocking revelations about those around him.

Edgewood series

I completed the first three Edgewood books and I loved them. I bought number four, but it is not audible, I wish it were.

here we go

First off, a big pet peeve of mine, authors horrible leaps in logic. Forcing characters to act extremely stupidly just to further the plot. Something that makes it worse is that nearly everyone involved is supposedly a genius and somehow they act semi impaired.

Secondly the personalities. These are 15 and 16 year olds. I could see them being somewhat immature but not to the extreme that they were portrayed. They seemed more like 13 year olds. Nadia is the only one that acted anywhere near her supposed age. Along with this, the audio narrator seemed to think so as well as they barely sounded older than 12. This series held a lot of potential but maybe pushing towards a preteen audience too hard is not the answer.

climax was too long

great book, but almost half of it was the climax scene. it was clear what was going to happen but it was put off repeatedly, or things were re-explained at the beginning of new chapters.

Great ending

Great story, from book one through book three, well defined characters, story line easy to follow, and the ending was good. I could have u gone
