Teen superhero Cassidy Jones is back in an all-new adventure! Cassidy and Emery, Cassidy’s 15-year-old super-genius boss/side-kick, are up against an all-new evil villain with powers equal to hers! OH, I forgot to tell you. Cassidy Jones has awesome superpowers (super-enhanced senses, super speed, super strength and a whole lot more) which she got during an accident in Serena Phillips’ (Emery’s mom) scientific laboratory. In “Vulcan’s Gift” Cassidy and Emery uncover a plot that involves an escaped tiger, the “Metal Man” super villain, an invention made by the Germans during World War II that some people will stop at nothing to get, and a Sasquatch (but that was really Cassidy in a furry coat). Follow along as Cassidy tries to learn how to control her growing powers, make-up with her boyfriend, survive gym class…and save the world!

In my opinion, Cassidy Jones is as great a superhero as any others! Cassidy is an awesome main character because she really is a “regular” kid that just happens to have superpowers. I really like how she keeps trying to figure out how to use her powers and how to control them. I also like Emery even more in this book. I like how Emery is a super genius, but in the second book he seems even more like a teen or kid and he’s a little more cool. I really like the way Ms. Stokes tells an action packed good vs. evil story in a super clean way (a way that younger kids can read without having bad words or graphic violence in it). I also like that Cassidy’s little brother, Chazz, kind of figures out that she’s a superhero and I hope that  we learn more about this in the next book. The ending of “Vulcan’s Gift” is AWESOME because it shows the meeting of two evil villains that are combining forces for the next great adventure!

    I haven’t read the series either, but appreciate the information that it’s clean without graphic violence. There are some movies with great stories, but I just can’t stand hearing & seeing the violence. So, I’m all for less violence.

      I also appreciate the clean-ness and non-graphic-violence-ness (actually, I’ve never read a book with graphic violence)! I’m usually not allowed to read books with a lot of bad words (if it has one/a small amount of bad word(s), my Mom just crosses it/them out). I get upset when there’s a book that sounds to have a great idea, but they have a ton of bad words. 😦
