A Class Apart: Class Heroes #1 by Stephen Henning

Samantha and James have always considered themselves normal, well as normal as fourteen year old twins go. They have a connection between them,  but that’s normal for twins.

Well this is the start of the adventure that shows just how not normal they are. A car blowing up, their friends trying to harm them a mysterious girl who does amazing things, and the twins demonstrating some interesting new skills.

This story is  a non stop adventure You occasionally have a moment to catch your breath and then you are off again. Well written, with characters that you can relate to easily.  As events become  more bizarre it doesn’t seem strange as the writer eases us with great skill into the minds and world of Samantha and James.

This is only be the first of a series, there is no cliffhanger but you definitely know that there is more to come, and I for one cannot wait.

Teenage twins James and Samantha Blake are caught up in a seemingly random terrorist bombing while on a school trip. Many of their friends are killed. When the twins wake up in hospital, their lives have changed forever.

The doctors are amazed at the speed with which James and Sam recover from their injuries and, when the twins begin to exhibit extraordinary powers, it is obvious that something incredible has happened.

As James and Sam attempt to overcome their fears and embrace their new abilities, a series of murders and disappearances start plaguing the hospital. The twins aren’t the only ones with special abilities and it becomes apparent that someone is coming for them.

Will James and Sam be able to survive the nightmare into which they have been plunged? Who, or what, is behind the murders at the hospital? And was that terrorist incident quite so random after all?
