Ten years have passed since Connor Connolly's parents were killed in a battle between two powerful 'Metas' (superhumans). He is in his twenties, has a good job, and lives with his brother. Inexplicably, he finds himself the possessor of a set of the wrist bands which grant the bearer powers. After a rather queasy debut, Connor decides he must develop his new-found abilities. Easy? You might think so. Along the way, he acquires a non-powered mentor, quits his job, gets a new job, and meets a gorgeous girl. Oh, and he attracts the attention of an obsessed villainous Meta that he must somehow defeat, in spite of his lack of experience (which also results in his alienation of his mentor). He also cannot tell his brother or friends about himself or his problems. Now if he could just survive long enough to persuade the girl to go on a date...

Best part of story, including ending:
I love the funny scenes...(hint: don't teleport into an empty bathroom stall).
Best scene in story:
At the end, Connor does get the girl, only having to reschedule because of a BIG problem (great cliffhanger into the next book, which makes me want the next book NOW).
Opinion about the main character:
He didn't have enough development. Even with the back story, the book felt incomplete.
