Review of #58 A Class Apart (Class Heroes #1) by Stephen Henning

A very good day (or night) to all my readers! I am so happy to present "A Class Apart" to all of you out there. I'll tell you why in a while. *wink*

First, take a look at "A Class Apart". :D

Teenage twins James and Samantha Blake are caught up in a seemingly random terrorist bombing while on a school trip. Many of their friends are killed. When the twins wake up in hospital, their lives have changed forever.

The doctors are amazed at the speed with which James and Sam recover from their injuries and, when the twins begin to exhibit extraordinary powers, it is obvious that something incredible has happened.

As James and Sam attempt to overcome their fears and embrace their new abilities, a series of murders and disappearances start plaguing the hospital. The twins aren’t the only ones with special abilities and it becomes apparent that someone is coming for them.

Will James and Sam be able to survive the nightmare into which they have been plunged? Who, or what, is behind the murders at the hospital? And was that terrorist incident quite so random after all?


The cover is absolutely stunning. I love the design of it because it has a sci-fi look to it yet the colors scream "VINTAGE" or old school blue.

At my first glance of the synopsis, I find the story to be really interesting.
It was similar to other stories yet it was really different as I started reading the book.

The introduction of the book was pretty normal, high school bullying and a really really mean girl.

I felt this was kinda cliche at first but it turns out to be a really explosive story.

As you read, you feel yourself getting pulled into the story. 

The bomb scene was pretty cool and I liked how Stephen wrote it all.

The main characters of the story (James and Sam) are these really interesting bunch of people.

I loved how their relationship as siblings made me feel, "Oh, wow. This is GOOD." in a story.

I loved the way how they function together as a family and seeing their ties getting stronger as the story progressed was really unique.

The one main thing that I really really REALLY loved about the story is THE SUSPENSE.

The utterly, exhilarating suspense of who-what-did-it kinda thing.

I was constantly wondering who the heck was the bad guy, who the heck was helping them, what was actually real and what was actually a dream.

I was CONSTANTLY STRESSED with these questions running through my head and I LOVED IT.

This was a really interactive experience and I truly enjoyed this book.

Some of you might be really surprised with the ending (which I did) but some of you may not. (I guess you're a genius then... which is good!)

Stephen Henning is definitely on my favorite authors list.
