Goodreads Description: When the MK virus swept
across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it
came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the
population developed superhero-like powers. Seventeen-year-old Ciere
Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She's
what's known as an illusionist...She's also a thief. After a
robbery goes awry, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow
super-powered criminals on another job that most would consider too
reckless. The formula for the vaccine that gave them their abilities was
supposedly destroyed years ago. But what if it wasn't? The lines
between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are
blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly
race against he government that could cost them their lives.
Why am I waiting? I love books where characters have superpowers. This has been marketed as "X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven" so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it lives up to its potential.
