If only I have a pillow by the river. Love reading in a relaxing environment, though it's often hard to do it. Most of my readings are done at airports...
At first you feel like: hey, I can predict what's going on next. Six teenagers with super powers found their parents are evil so they run away and fight with them. Sounds exactly like a mediocre recipe.
But these three books tell a very convincing, fun, and complete story. The powers of all characters are used in ways you can never imagine. And the ending, the ending is so powerful you never see that coming.
These three volumes are telling a story that's independent from the other volumes.
