Denne uken er boktemaet hos Anettes bokboble boka/bøkene vi leser akkurat nå. Jeg leser som vanlig flere bøker samtidig, men har valgt ut en å vise fram.
The Vindico av Wesley King
The Vindico are a group of supervillains who have been fighting the League of Heroes for as long as anyone can remember. Realizing they’re not as young as they used to be, they devise a plan to kidnap a group of teenagers to take over for them when they retire—after all, how hard can it be to teach a bunch of angsty teens to be evil?
Held captive in a remote mansion, five teens train with their mentors and receive superpowers beyond their wildest dreams. Struggling to uncover the motives of the Vindico, the teens have to trust each other to plot their escape. But they quickly learn that the differences between good and evil are not as black and white as they seem, and they are left wondering whose side they should be fighting on after all . . .
Jeg liker boka så langt; den er morsom, velskreven og holder interessen.
Et sitat fra side 46-7:
"You obviously have questions," the older man continued. "I will answer the most pressing first. You have been taken for a specific reason, and you are being offered a special gift. These," he said, gesturing toward his companions, "are your mentors. Each has selected one of you, and you will function as their protégé. You will all live here together. At selected times, you will train one-on-one with your mentors or in larger sessions as a group. You will not be allowed to leave until your training is complete."
"What exactly are we training to be?" Hayden asked. "Somehow I don't think this is an apprenticeship program. Unless it's for a weird fashion school, in which case, I'm loving the cape," he said to the long-haired man.
