Kayla Howarth has created an interesting new take on a superhero genre... superhuman powers were created by a bad vaccine and are something to be feared rather than appreciated. The setup was a new approach to the dystopian apocalypse story and I appreciate this new take on it. Howarth does a good job of painting a creepy picture of the looming Institute and creating mystery around it, then delivers on the reality of The Institute. Her character descriptions drew me in - I like the main character and was really rooting for her; I despised her main enemy (which is the point, of course). I enjoyed the storyline and a few twists caught me by surprise, which I always like. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book!
