Thirteen-year-old Tyler Thompson is a super-normal who fights crime in Las Vegas, utilizing only a fragment of the superpowers bequeathed to him by the angel Metatron. But in order to receive the full compliments of his special gifts, he must first prove himself worthy of the honor. So when the evil scientist who killed his father known as Dr. Mason Payne escapes from prison, hell-bent on killing his family, Tyler springs into action.
Tyler’s mentor, Master Pat Tanaka, urges him to unlock his remaining powers before taking on Dr. Payne so that others don’t get hurt. Tyler heeds his guidance, suspecting that his missing grandfather is being held as a prisoner in Area 51, along with the secret to unlocking the last of his superpowers. Along the way, Tyler discovers the Mystical Blade - a weapon of extraordinary power - the weapon that could spell the end of Dr. Payne once and for all. But when a new foe named Black Shadow emerges and joins in Dr. Payne’s schemes to destroy all that Tyler holds dear, Maxx becomes collateral damage and Tyler must figure out how to bring him back to life before its too late. Soon after, Tyler’s grandfather reveals even more secrets and informs him that something even more evil is lurking just around the corner.

I am starting this series with this book. As both books are pretty short, I didn't think I missed much. Apart from the more detailed origin story, I don't think I have. I was able to jump right in and enjoy the story. It is definitely geared towwards a younger audience, but that wasn't a detriment to me. The narration is done fairly well. I thought it had a good balance so it would be enjoyable for most age of listener that enjoy superhero stories.
