I really enjoyed this book It had some really good charactersOwen after only just receiving his special abilities where as he can reach into other worlds and grab onto things kinda like flying swinging Mrs Argylle the next door neighbour can produce wind enabling her to fly amongst other things and Ken her brother who can produce water They are joined by others along the way even Ken s cow Myrtle who has special abilities too is just greatThey set out to rescue Owens dad after he is kidnapped by The Remnant who also want Owen and the others to help them which cannot be goodI do hope there will be a seuel I would love to find out a little about Mrs Argylle s a I was given this book in exchange for an honest review
by the author and Lovers of Paranormal Firstly I have to say that this book was so the author and Lovers of Paranormal Firstly I have to say that this book was so better than I expected from the title and the references to superheroesThe Remarkables was a well thought out and well written story although there were a few typos and editing errors they didn t detract too much from the taleThe concept of the characters powers being accessed from other worlds was interesting The characters were likable and well formed even the cow Owen a teenager just discovering he has special talents being rescued and helped by his elderly lady neighbour reminded me somewhat of Harry Potter but there were no other similaritiesThe characters had back stories which gave them depth and linked them together I look forward to finding out in the next book Reaching Out Without giving too much away I had guessed at the Trilby character s identity during the fight with the alien creature and can t wait for some answers to that in the next book hopefully Finallydon t be put off by the title if ou are in doubt give it a go I thoroughly enjoyed the book R2R LoP The RemarkablesI received a free copy through LoP in exchange for a reviewOwen is like so many other teenager fights with his brother has issues with people at school and has a best friend who happens to be a girl No big deal until one day it became one All of a sudden he was able to climb up huge buildings with no effort something the likes of only superheros could do Then things go haywire His neighbor who he thought was a little old lady comes to the rescue showing extreme strength cunning and surprisingly what one would call super hero powers This is just the introduction to the group labeled The Remarkables seemingly normal people with non normal powers Now the old team are being hunted or recruited to the organization but to what end So after decades of being one step ahead of those that he had thus far avoided so expertly this morning he was now Just finished this book after pickling it up for free off Wow What an original concept Superheroes in literature are usually corny and far too Marvel esue The Remarkables are surprisingly grounded most of the time and there s a normality about the superpowers that they have This isn t a criticism as I really liked how there might be a chance that our next door neighbor or classmate might have the ability to fly or engulf ou in flames My only criticisms would be the occasional stray word that seemed out of place and the speed of the plot It s by no means a short book but a lot happens I guess that s a refreshing change from some of the plodding books out there though Other than that the characters are great and their hinted at back story is intriguingThe ending is cool and hopefully sets up nicely for a seuel If there is a follow up Myrtle She s the most kick ass character in a book I ve read this The Day Of Atonement And The Heavenly Judgment: From The Pentateuch To Revelation year I d also like to see a bit of the WW2 antics that some of the characters apparently got up to Like what they did to that German submarine the author is such a tease and the past of the character of Clive which seems a bit shadyOverall the best surprise I ve had reading thisear To start off with this book is very fast paced Throughout the book are some very funny moments The humor is incorporated throughout the book much like in Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series I like how most of the characters in the book have powers of some kind although most have only one abilityThis isn t a superhero story in the sense most people are used to Although the heroes all have superpowers they don t have costumes or secret identities and the goal is to simply save the boy Owen s dad though it does get bigger than thatI really liked how the characters including a cow in the book are all very uniue Each character with powers has a different ability Two of these characters Mrs Argyle and Ken reminded me of the benders in the Avatar The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra TV shows except the way their abilities work are
Very DifferentFor Anyone That Has differentFor anyone that has a lot of comic books such as Justice League should easily be able to recognize and understand the idea of infinite Earths as mentioned in the book Unfortunately because I am very familiar with this concept I can t say whether the explanations. Owen Johnson's day was progressing just as it did for most other teenagers By lunchtime he had climbed a tall building using abilities usually reserved for superheroes; he had flirted with the girl he had secretly adored for ears; he had come home to find his dad had been kidnapped and a mysterious stranger stand. .
WIND FIRE AND WATER OWEN JOHNSON IS ABOUT TOfire and water Owen Johnson is about to what really means to be specialThe Remarkables is a super hero storyline but not one that involves costumes or over top abilities Many are gifted with psychic powers while others have the ability to pull their strengths and gifts from other worlds The group has been hunted for decades but with Owen s full potential about to be revealed they can no longer hide in plain sight as Owen has become the number one Remarkable on the hit list of super heroes On the run Owen and the others will find themselves pulled into a struggle of good vs evilThe storyline reads like a middle grade novel rather than Methodical Deception young adult This is an adventure storyline where theoung hero must use his powers to save the people that he knows and loves but in true super hero storylines it is never that easy Many secondary characters are introduced whose backstory and history were only hinted at or alluded to There are many unexplained scenarios about The Remarkables that have Promise Me a Rainbow yet to be answered and this left me with some issues of coherency and cohesion I kept asking myself How and Why but apparently The Remarkables is the first book in a series by virtue of the ending and hopefully many of the uestions and unknowns will be answered in the next bookOverall THE REMARKABLES is a cute adventure storyline but one that I believe will be of interest to a select audience perhapsoung boys and girls who dream that they too will one day be able to fly and walk through walls If ou have a tween who likes to read stories of adventure science fiction and super heroes with magical abilities then The Remarkables is the perfect summer readsee all of my reviews at wwwthereadingcafecom First off let me explain my rating of 35 stars I just want to make it abundantly clear this is a GOOD scoring not a bad scoring I would give it a 4 star which is the same as alot of the books i love however there are few parts of the book i fell out with Firstly there are a few spelling errors I m not gonna be pedantic and start listing these out im not THAT ocd however i think with a little tidying up this novel could indeed be Remarkable sorry that was lame A few areas of the storyline did lul at some point but nothing ghastly enough to make me put it down for an unmentionable amount of timeI Would Have Loved To Have Seen Character have loved to have seen character they all had so much potential and i expecialy liked Mrs Argyle Although not sure if this is because she had the most face time out of everyone so her personality was able to evolve She really cracked me upOwen i found a little bit wet I had the impression he was the main character but he didn t really have any strong traits which drew me too him He wasnt even a knob so i couldn t hate him either The only real emotion i could draw from him was his tingly feelings toward Kate he occasionaly worried about his Dad I also think Kate could have maybe been a little sassy or headstrong would have matched her particular power nicely I think some aspects would have worked better with less thinking paragraphs and interaction between the charactersKates sister Fiona i think should have been featured earlier It would have been great to have her built as a solid character give ou time to love her before the betrayal for maximum impact I wanted to be able to shout into the kindle ou nasty lying cheating betch alas i didn t care enough Since she first walked onto the pages i could sense treachery In one way this is a very good thing as the emotion and general vibe was given off VERY nicely indeed however i feel it could have been delivered with a little oompfh Hence an earlier meeting would have been aceOnce i reached the end it was obvious there is a second book on the cards which also makes me think it would have been cool to have saved some of the characters for this installment I felt like too many key people were introduced in such a short amount of time that i didn t really get to know them very well they all seemed like awesome people which is why i feel like this is a shame Clive for example has an ACE power he seems like a right character but he was left ou. Ing in his living room; and finally he had been rescued by the elderly woman from next door who had suddenly revealed that she had the power to launch people through the airThe Remarkables introduces Owen Johnson to the world of a group of seemingly ageless war heroes each possessing uniue gifts that had been used. ,

T alot of the time I think Myrtle the kick ass cow had feature time then Clive and she couldnt even talk lol I m hoping we get to see him alot in the second novelThis brings me nicely onto the super powers I LOVE the concept of reaching into another world It s so much original then other super power books i ve read and does make this a stand alone concept There are of course the elementals windwaterfire these powers are used by drawing the active elements from another time and place in another world Then there are powers like Owens which to be fair to the guy its a pretty cool power He has the ability to reach his hands into another place and grab onto rock facessolid objects Not only this but when he s doing it he also is granted super strength to his body so he can carry people and be like Batman eat our heart out Rockclimbing in mid air Katy also has the spectacular ability to punch stuff REALLY hard I tell Vascular and Interventional Radiology: A Core Review you what if that was me i would have abused that ability to high heaven that would be SO funMy biggest end of book gripe was the UNKNOWN Argh i still wanna know how the majority of the characters got their powers and who these supernatural government type peeps are from what i can gather they are utter a holes Gutted oh well i hope book 2 is out real soon Presuming there is a book 2 One can hope AD Elliott has written a fun and exciting story in The Remarkables I found the characters easy to like Owen is the picked on kid that finds himself in possession of special powers At first he is afraid of these powers and also thinks them weak compared to other powers in the book but learns they are rare and actually come in pretty handy The other characters were fantastic too Ken Clive and Fafnir create an air ofouthfulness with their jibes and uirky attitudes even though the Family! Vol. 4 youngest of them is 131ears old Mrs Argyle is a fierce old lady that holds the group together through the sheer force of her will Katie as a love interest to Owen is great because they both have so much in common powers both lost parents and they have known each other since they were babies I appreciate the slow build of a relationship between these two and how it can be increased in future books I know the next book in the series is due out soon and I ll definitely be reading it I received a copy of this book from the group Lovers of Paranormal in exchange for an honest review This book was epic I really really liked it It was incredibly uniue I ve never encountered a book anything like this one beforeThe characters in this book each possess powers of sorts all of which are connected to countless other universes the book explains it very clearly so cool On top of that
The Plot Twists And Turnsplot twists and turns to keep ou enthralled I also enjoyed the fact that this
book has a very good balance between the action and the character development Often times I find books tohas a very good balance between the action and the character development Often times I find books to staggered heavily in one directionI found the characters both oung and old to be highly ent I received a copy of this book in return for my honest review Thanks AD When Owen Johnson comes home from school to find out that his father had been kidnapped he must learn to trust his superpowers and the powers of the Remarkables others with uniue gifts This book was a fast paced action packed superhero book that literally kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time What a wild ride Character wise although my favorite was most definitely Myrtle I did enjoy Owen as well He seemed like a normal teenager to me albeit one with extraordinary powers I liked that we got to see him and his feelings for Kate as well as how he worried over what was happening to his father It brought him down to a human level so to speak and made him identifiable But also like I said Myrtle was so awesome I almost wish she could have her own book because she was just such a kickass character The storyline moved pretty uickly which I enjoy with a book such as this It kept my heart pumping and my brain excited for The back story of some of the characters was just so intriguing and it really made me hope for a seuelWriting wise I was pretty happy with this book There were a few typos which were to be expected but nothing that really threw me out of the books reality or halted my reading process There is some humor in this book as well which made me really happy I love stories like this with humor it was very reminiscent of the Percy Jackson series which made me love it even The author hinted at some things and left little tidbits about some of the characters such as Clive that really made me even interested in this world and what happened to some of the characters in the past In my opinion there could be countless books in this type of series and it reminded me of The Avengers or The Justice League in terms of different worlds and realities Very interesting stuffAll in all this book was a real pleasure to read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fast paced superheroaction adventure oung adult books. To fight evil Now they must help Owen find his dad and uncover a new threat to our way of life Along their journey Owen slowly starts to learn the secrets of his past and discovers surprising truths about himself and those that he thought he knew; some of which he is glad to learn some he may wish that he had not.
