REVIEW: The Invisible by Amelia Kahaney
The Invisible is the 2014 follow up the The Brokenhearted. Protagonist Anthem Fleet is back and more determined than ever to discover the truth behind her father's involvement in the Syndicate, Bedlam's corrupt, secretive and high powered organization determined to keep the wealthy rich and the poor in their place. Her quest for answers is balanced by an attempt at regained normalcy following the experimental operation that left her with a bionic hummingbird heart and a budding chance at romance with Ford, following his own life saving surgery. When a new foe called The Invisible attacks the elite families in Bedlam, Anthem feels compelled to stop him and his followers before even more people are hurt. She is shocked to learn that Invisible's appearance and motives for revenge are deeply rooted within her own family history.
This is a fantastic series! The characters are well developed and intriguing with a certain comic-esque flair. I kept drawing strong comparisons to Batman and the plight of Gotham. I highly recommend this to reading wanting a fast paced and exciting read or a read-a-like for other re-imagined superhero tales like Brandon Sanderson's Steelheart series or Bethany Frenette's Dark Star trilogy (Dark Star, Burn Bright, Fire Fall). If this is it for the series, then it is a fitting conclusion but I'd love to see the characters come back for just one more adventure!
Final rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
