This is a good book. It has a lot of similarities with the Legend series but in a good way. Both the main characters are motivated for different reasons and not because of some crappy romance. Being a YA, it has some amount of romance but not too overpowering, and definitely not enough for the characters to change their views of the world, or their ideals and principles. That being said the world building is good. The powers of the prodigies is explained nicely and doesn't sound cliched. We have a villain with superpowers who thinks that if people with superpowers didn't exist then people would be better off as they'll stop being lazy and relying on superheroes to make all the decisions for them.
And we have a hero who thinks that society won't be able to recover or survive of it wasn't for the superheroes.
Both of them make sound, logical arguments. Hopefully we'll find a common ground in the sequel. Also, this is only a duology so excited for the last part.
