From the Publisher:
It sucks being the son of a super villain. At home, Harry spends half of his time getting medical treatments and the other half tied up in his father’s underwater lair. It was different when his mother was alive, but she disappeared when Harry was six. He can’t seem to stay out of trouble at school, and his new roommate, Antonin, thinks he’s a spaz, but somehow Harry has to find a way to stop his father’s evil plans.
Antonin Karganilla wants to become a comic book artist, but other than that, being gay is the most normal thing about him. His uncle is an aquatic plant man, his aunt is a molecular biologist back from the dead, and his mom is an overprotective pain in the butt. Antonin’s in boarding school and it’s starting to look like he and this Harry kid might have a lot in common…and that means a whole new set of problems.

This was the story of Harry, a delinquent with anger issues and Antonin, a somewhat shy yet good student who enjoys comic books. This was the story of how Harry and Antonin save the world while saving each other. This story was well done although somewhat slow to start. It really picked up when Antonin takes Harry home with him on school holiday. Just as things begin to change between the boys the story gets somewhat dark. It is this change that makes you realize what Harry’s father had been planning; To take out Antonin’s family no matter who got in his way. I felt as though Harry had no support system and at times was ready to kill himself, which made my heart break for him. He did, however, find support in Antonin and his family, which was made up of some really wacky characters that were almost more enjoyable than the relationship between the two boys. Both boys carry huge emotional baggage and end up being exactly what the other one needed. I do not normally read or in this case listen to sci-fi, but this book was really good and made me a fan.
I have to say, I absolutely loved the narrator to this book. It was like having someone read you a bedtime story with a sci-fi superhero twist, he was really enjoyable to listen to.
I would like to thank Dreamspinner Press for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
