    Why did I pick up this book and why did it disappoint me so much? I think it has to do with my expectations and what the book actually isFirst off let me explain what I was expecting out of this book I know it's free from some author out there trying to make a living and I'm here to get a decently entertaining superhero book The problem is Supervillain High can't really be called a superhero book I picked this up because I fought there would be fun characters cool powers and entertaining fights like other good free ebooks This book is not that which isn't bad but rather misleading This book is of a mystery novel with some science fiction elementsAny superhero stuff is nothing than background I expected for this book to handle the way we idolize heroes and villains like the description said but instead that is barely handled Some students watch a TV channel about superhero battles That's it A TV channel There could be so many creative ways of showing how this concept effects the world created but it is so minimal it's almost lazyAnd the main character doesn't seem to deal with his father issues at all At first it seems like he'd hide away from the superhero craze because he finds it odd how people idolize his dad but that happens for a handful of pages while the main character watches the TV channel with the rest of the invested students and even interjects in their conversations It's almost like it doesn't effect him in any way There goes any characterization or conflict with his friends that do enjoy the superhero crazeI'm writing this review almost a week after I read this book and I can't for the life of me remember any of the characters' names because they are so bland Generic friend mysterious girl mean girl I learned to fight from my older brothers girlPerhaps it's because the book is a mystery but I found it boring That actually might be looking down on the genre because mysteries have suspense and tension This book had zero tension Most of it was complaining about no wifi or the main character breaking the rules Each time someone will eventually point out You can't break the rules you'll get expelled Except despite Brendan breaking the rules multiple times he never gets than a slap on the wrist Each time the next suspenseful scene kicked in and the supposed threat was mentioned I felt completely detached because I knew there would be no conseuences Even if Brendan did get kicked out who cares? It was mentioned that he was kicked out of schools before and what is happening at the school most of the time feels tensionless so why bother?When I say there is no tension I mean there is a school shooting with tranuilizer darts in one scene and it feels like only one character reacts by crying or being overly scared It happens and then the story moves on like there is no sense of danger I've been in lockdowns under mere threats of school shootings and let me tell you the first part of you being locked in a classroom everyone is dead silent and scared and expecting to be hurt at least for the first half hour before everyone realizes through the rumor mill that it's unlikely something will actually happenSince the book says that there was someone on campus when they were locked down everyone should be terrified disregarding the fact that they're using tranuilizers for some reason Kidnapping is still a thing and the book mentions that the students are all from rich families Plus the cell phones aren't working They should be terrified that the police wont show up They're completely helpless and no one seems too worried about that Am I the only one who thought this was handled poorly? Even during a traumatizing event there is no danger I don't care if you want your main character to be some sort of level headed and strong piece of cardboard he is supposed to be a human being with emotions and should have some fear or panic especially in the situation that was set upSkip ahead to the one interesting scene at the end with one painfully obvious twist and the book ends with as much emotion that I felt throughout which was none This story is just so dull and boring that I don't think it's worth the time to read it

    This book is so fun Mysterious goings on and supers? It's one that grabs your attention and really pulls you into this almost similar yet totally different world from our own The struggles of dealing with a new school a lurking evil and being miles away from home all come together very well in this book Brendan does the best he can and ends up in the middle of something he could have never imagined It's a fun look on the 'super' genera with its in story commentary and action which if you think sounds interesting I recommend checking out

    Ooof The synopsis got me interested but this one falls short of the blurbBlurb fail 1 Where was the part of the book where the internet loved MC's dad? I must have missed it Supers seemed like a goofy oddity in this world than internet sensations Maybe this universe has a different bar for internet fame Hard to tellBlurb fail 2 Where was the part where everyone just seems too nice? Who was too nice? I must have missed that tooThe book is just weird About halfway through the book it dawned on me that the book is really moody and atmospheric Which is great I actually like that But I'm also not sure that it was intentional Some of the dialogue is unnatural For example this is a sentence uttered by the MC a teenage boy talking with his friends Both Paul and I have experienced some kind of reprieve by the administration Experienced a reprieve? Is this a phrase kids commonly use? Like those Dawson's River kids? Beyond the dialogue a lot of the action is also unnatural and confusing The bully is introduced awkwardly and so is the love interest It's a high school story so I suppose the bully is a reuisite character but the characterization is lazy and half fast The love story is an afterthought which is totally okayThe MC Brendan is at this school under possibly mysterious circumstances which he never wonders about? and it looks like one of his classmates has some sort of super power? Are are all the kids powered? Is that the secret of the school? Is Brendan powered? The book is never clear about whether super powers exist or if it's just ordinary people dressed up in tights and fighting crime Are they just slightly enhanced like not uite Captain Americas? Or are they not stinking rich Bruce Waynes?I stuck with this all the way to the end but I was running out the clock during the last 15 20% This was a solid not for me

    Oh man this book really captivated me I read it in the span of 4 days because the way Gehrke slowly reveals bits of crucial information is tantalizing in a way that at least for me makes it impossible to put down The overarching plot was convoluted but in a way that fits perfectly within the world that he's built On top of that each one of the main character's peers is distinct and fascinating in a way that while sometimes cartoonish gives the reader something real and dynamic to hold onto in the midst of such unbelievable twists and turns Really it's a lot of funUnfortunately this book also suffers some symptoms of a literature disease I like to call being Written By A Man That is to say there IS a bit of diversity in terms of race and gender don't hold your breath for sexual orientation though but nothing's terribly groundbreaking The story plants itself in a presumably straight white male's perspective and never sees any reason to venture out of that While this doesn't make the book unreadable by any means it stops the characters from reaching their full potential Of course this IS the beginning of a series so there's always time to improve in these areasOverall Supervillain High is definitely worth the read It's exciting endearing and fast paced in a way that makes for a fun little romp in the fields of Young Adult Lit Its inclusion of diversity however is serviceable at best and at worst downright tropey Don't get your hopes up for the representation of the century or anything but definitely don't let that be the reason you don't pick up this book Seriously go read this right now

    What is a normal teenage boy supposed to do when his father is a supervillain? Most people love the villain Drone King But Brenden just wishes they weren't related Thankfully a special grant has made it possible for Brenden to attend an exclusive private school on the other side of the country But his school has its own mysteries that threaten not only Brenden but his friends and the rest of the schoolThis is a different type of superpowered story There are no aliens mutants ancient demigods or people who went through strange scientific accidents that should have killed them but instead gave them incredible powers All of the supers in this story use technology Bulletproof suits hang gliders electrified weapons and other things to commit or fight crime The world loves them or least they love watching them Brenden loves them too he just wishes his dad wasn't one of themBut now he is getting a fresh start That is what makes this story standout It doesn't focus on people in tights beating up on each other although that does happen It focuses on the normal everyday kids and how a world of supers affect them Of course there are the mysteries that surround the school that the kids will have to try and solve So they do become heroes in their own right but that still doesn't mean they will come through without getting hurtThis is a fun fast read that looks to be a great start to a slightly offbeat kind of superhero story 45 stars

    Supervillain High is a new take on the superheroYA genre Brendan isn't a superhero a superhero wannabe or even a kid who is about to get bitten by something radioactive or fall into a vat of sludge His father is a famous villain known as the Drone King and Brendan just wants to have a normal life Gerhard Gehrke does a great job creating and detailing the world the characters and the ongoing storylineBrendan is trying to be get ahead in life at Dutchman Springs Academy in California where he has become a newly matriculated student In order to afford it he's been awarded a grant to the prestigious school but of course the grant was on the up and up right? This is just the first of the tantalizing uestions Gehrke raises Cell phones don't work after ten pm although the school network doesSupervillain High is a fun book The descriptions and characterizations are solid and it's easy to 'hear' the different characters as they interact Although it is the first book in a series it can easily be read as a standalone novelI was lucky enough to get an ARC of the book and I'm glad I did

    Brenden was raised by his single mom His dude is a super villain with an uncanny ability to make and control drones Brenden gets a mysterious grant to attend a private high school that just might be than it seems Can he keep the embarrassing truth about his father a secret? Can he figure what weird things happen at night? Read it and find outThis is my third Gehrke novel and each has had a different tone and feel Each was in a totally different universe What can’t this guy write?I got a reviewer copy There were no obligations No one threatened to send their drones to Science Fantasy Hub’s real world H aka the little room in my basement where I write edit podcast review stuff and do other geeky things No coercion was necessary because this book was a heap of fun


  8. The Mysterious Reader The Mysterious Reader says:

    I really like the concept and world building for this story It’s a world much like ours but where there are active superheroes These folks are all of the Tony Stark Ironman variety however as this is not a world of paranormal heroes Into this world comes our leading man Brendan who just wants to be a kid with a normal high school life where nobody knows that his dad is a supervillian That ain’t gonna happen Brendan’s luck into getting admitted to an elite high school across the country is a “two edged sword” as this is not your normal school at all and danger lurks in these here parts Don’t worry though he’ll be up for the job and it sure is fun to follow along Definitely recommend


  9. Ellie Naomi Ellie Naomi says:

    This has to be probably one of my favorite books ever The setting of the story was super cool and original Loved the supers being like sport teams The characters were great Brian being my favorite character The romance felt perfect it blended perfectly in the story without feeling out of place The ending had me at the edge of my seat Got the rest of the books on my wish list Love this book Would recommend to everyone 1010


  10. Jeannie Sharpe Jeannie Sharpe says:
