Blackout by Robison Wells is a fun read. While it is aimed at the YA audience, I believe older readers will enjoy it as well. The premise is that a virus is giving children super powers. Some of those kids belong to a terrorist organization (who if they aren’t behind the virus at least know enough to take advantage of it) and they wreak havoc. In some ways this book is along the same vein as Steelheart.

The action is fun and the theme of terror resonates with our present political climate. Wells raises a lot of question as the story progresses and by the end, those that have been answered raise new and more intriguing questions.  It’s a fun book, give it a try.
