Rise of the Heroes 2009 is the first book in Andy Briggs intriguing new series Herocom Part of the interest arises from the fact that there is a companion series Villainnet which begins with Council of EvilWhile I did not uite know what to expect from the book I was excited when I got my hands on a copy of Rise of the Heroes The book begins with four children Toby and his older sister Lorna are trapped inside their house during a torrential downpour with their two best friends Pete and Emily respectively While fighting over the computer the children happen upon a most unusual websiteUnlike anything they have seen before Herocom promises the chance to download superpowers and fight crime as you guessed it a hero The site s disclaimer advises users Herocom is not liable for any damage destruction lost of euipment premises or life including lost of limb brain function or other biological necessities Loss of personal possessions sanity or loved ones is the sold responsibility of the End User He She It who chooses to use such powers We do not condone the use of powers for monetary gain selfish or evil pursuit and absolve ourselves from any such claim misuse or misunderstandingIf you think any of that uote sounds like Curses Inc by Vivian Vande Velde you d be right Sadly there are a few fundamental differences between the two books I feel terrible saying this because Briggs prefacenote makes it really clear that he was pumped about his new series But I just was notWhile I can see the appeal for younger readers Rise of the Heroes didn t do much for me Briggs sets up the novel as a how did we get here story characters working to the point shown at the beginning like when a movie shows something then says four days earlier Sometimes that works but often it doesn t In this particular case there was so much action that while suspensful there was no time to develop any involvement with the charactersThis lack of involvement is a problem that recurs in the novel Briggs offers no basic description which made it difficult for me to tell Toby and Pete apart in the first chapters Then we have Emily who was so passive and excessively feminine that although nothing was said I felt like she would be fighting crime in a pink pinafore ridiculousEven with the really cool premise the characters were just not that cool On top of that I m sorry to say that the writing seemed rather stiff to me The dialogue often seemed posed and stilted Briggs also brings in some description of how the computer connects to a web site which was largely irrelevant and sounded vaguely wrong I m almost positive that electrons play no role whatsoever in a dial up Internet connection Accuracy aside the descriptions might have been cool in 1999 but in 2009 when most people are using DSL connection the information just felt dated

Language PG 3 swear 0 f Mature Content G Violence PG As much as people imagine having superpowers no one actually believes that they can receive them Until it happens At first Toby and his friends like the adventure and excitement of doing the impossible but then they realize that having these powers isn t just a game Now they re off to defeat a real supervillain but what can a bunch of inexperienced kids doOf course the premise is exciting to think about because we ponder superpowers and love the impossible but I also liked the idea of anyone becoming a hero Becoming a hero is what we do not necessarily the powers behind what we do However I did not like the opening scene of the book not that it s a bad scene but that Toby flashes back to the real beginning of their story I didn t like it because it felt like a trick and I became annoyed after just starting the bookReviewed for
