I have been waiting for book 3 in the Cassidy Jones series to come out! Cassidy Jones is back in an all-new adventure! In book one, Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula (see me review HERE) we learned that Cassidy got her superhero powers during an accident that happened while  visiting a genetics laboratory with her father. Since then, Cassidy and her “side-kick” Emery (the super-intelligent son of the geneticist in charge of the lab where Cassidy got her powers) have been fighting crime and trying to figure out how to control her powers. In this adventure, Cassidy is on a school field trip to a museum to see an ancient Egyptian exhibit. She overhears some people saying that they want to steal something from the museum. It turns out that one of the bad guys is Emery’s mysterious father!  Things get worse for the teenage superhero when she learns that Arthur King Jr. (that evil guy from book 1) was broken out of jail by Lily White (that evil girl from book 2) and Arthur’s super-evil mutant-making father, Arthur King Sr. (ginormous evil guy who was supposed to have died in a plane crash), come together to steal a microchip hidden in the museum display that can destroy the world. Find out how the super-powered teenager and her super-smart friend tackle the bad guys and still make it to class on time!

I am a superhero aficionado. I love classic superhero stories and I have to say – CASSIDY JONES ROCKS!!!  Seriously, move over Superman! (*sigh* OK Superman, just scootch over. You’re still very cool 😉 ) This Cassidy Jones book was just as awesome as the first two (see my review of Cassidy Jones and the Vulcan’s Gift  HERE). I love that Ms. Stokes wrote a YA superhero adventure series that is good for MG readers too (there are two or three times where the word a** appears, like in smarta**. Other than that it is totally appropriate for all ages). Ms. Stokes writing style makes the story very exciting and vivid in your mind. Cassidy is an awesome character. She is a hero boys and girls will love because she acts pretty much just like a normal teen and has normal teen issues (friends, school, family stuff). She seems really genuine. Emery is just plain cool too. He is cool because all of his “powers” are just because of his mind. He is just smart, and that’s awesome. I really like the twists at the end of this book and I can’t wait for book 4! Get writing Ms. Stokes!!! 😉

    Sounds like the bad guy is a play on the good guy, King Arthur! And who would think Lily White is also a baddy? Or have I got it wrong? Interesting premise! Lol!

      I get the Arthur King/King Arthur, but what about Lily White? Hmm…

        I think it is Lily White rather than Blanche Fleur from the same myth ~ white flower and we wouldn’t normally think of the baddies as being Lily White ~ interesting!

    Superhero adventures away! This sounds like an awesome read. I’ll have to start from the beginning to get more in depth in the overarching plot and each subsequent subplot.

    Thanks for the review.

    I chuckled at your line that “the super-powered teenager and her super-smart friend tackle the bad guys and still make it to class on time!” Glad there are good superhero books out there. I remember the previous books you reviewed. The Cassidy Jones series sounds like a great read for middle grade sudents.

    Erik, you have made my day! Thank you so much for the amazing review! I cannot wait to share it! I’m glad you enjoyed The Seventh Attendant and appreciate your reading it. I hope you’ll read The Luminous, too, which will be released this time next year, if all goes to plan. 🙂 Thanks again and have a great summer!

    Erik, I too love this series. The Seventh Attendant is already loaded on my iPad. Your review will push it up my to read list.

    Awesome review. It was so good that if you were older, I’d have you review my airline thriller. But your parents would hate me as there’s some adult language in it.

    Keep reading and reviewing. You write great reviews.

      Thank you for realizing the age for which you write. Sometimes people call certain books MG, but they are really YA books…
      I hope you like Cassidy Jones #3! 😀

    Sounds excellent! Is it necessary to read the first book first, or can they be read in any order?

      I would read the first book so you know what’s happening, but you can start anywhere in the series. 😀
