An Alisa Release Day Review: Hidden Powers (Superordinary Society #1) by Tara Lain


Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Jazz Vanessen is weird—and not just because he’s a werewolf. For most of his life, he’s felt different from his alpha male brothers and friends. Since he’s adopted, he can’t even blame it on family.

Now eighteen, Jazz meets his idol, the social activist Lysandra Mason, and her breathtaking nephew, Dash Mercury. When Dash is around, even stranger things start to happen, including Jazz falling hopelessly in lust. Not only is Jazz having visions, making people disappear, and somehow turning invisible, but somebody’s following him and threatening to reveal his pack’s secrets to the world.

Together with Dash and Jazz’s equally amazing friends—Carla, BeBop, Khadija, and Fatima—they discover the danger is even more lethal than they thought, and Jazz’s weirdness may save all their lives.

This was a wonderful story.  I didn’t connect that this is following those from the Harker Pack series but I was so glad when I realized it as I loved that series.

Jazz has always felt different than his family and all the weird things that have been happening around him is making it worse.  Dash is way more than Jazz could ever have thought but he is really a lot of help once he decides which side he is on.

I loved Jazz, he is so sweet and while there are some secrets he has to keep, he doesn’t apologize for who he is.  I loved seeing him do what he does best but felt for him when he was confused and everything seemed to be going wrong.  Now Dash, I didn’t like him initially when he came to stay with Carla but once he allowed himself not just follow what he is told he let the real him show and really hope he isn’t gone to his special school too long.  I loved how the friends are all different and have different things that were special about them.  I can’t wait to read more in this series and see what these kids get up to.

I really like the cover art by Reese Dante and think it works well for the story.
