I approached this book with caution, I am not a fan of Marvel Comics and fantastic heroes, but how wrong I was.
Mutant City is set in a future world where man has wrecked the earth and some have lived under ground for generations and others lived on the surface. Finally those below return to Scorched Earth and separate the world into Mutants and Pure city dwellers.
Into this mix comes Melk a scientist who is a genetic engineer: people can now buy perfection. But his experiments go too far and the book opens as five children are rescued for ‘The Farm’. These are Melk’s experiments and each has a special power. Thirteen years later the children are all called back together again, even though they are un aware of each other’s existence.
This book is the story of how they come together, learn about their powers and begin to understand their mission. It ends with Melk revealing how mad a scientist he is and the five facing a new a maybe invincible enemy.
A cracking book filled with adventure, action and thought provoking themes. It is a total page turner and I can’t wait for the next one.
