Published by Alloy Entertainment on February 2nd 2016
Genres: superhero, YA, Young Adult
After the most vicious villain attack in centuries, Maci Knight is struggling to put the shattered pieces of her life back together. She survived, but barely, and her family will never be the same. The only good thing to come out of the attack is that the Elders have granted her probationary Hero status. Now she’s desperate to prove that she has what it takes to shine in the field.
Maci gets her first chance when she’s called in to stop an illegal fighting ring where humans are battling to the death. But when she goes toe-to-toe with the fighters, she’s shocked to discover that even she can’t contain them. The humans are strong—supernaturally so. Maci knows that this is the work of the villain underground and is determined to put an end to it. But how do you fight an enemy who won’t show their face?
In the second installment of the City of Legends trilogy, Maci Knight will find out what she’s truly made of.
This is a new edition of the previously self-published novel Overpowered.

I can’t pass up a story by Cheyanne Young. After reading the first book (twice) I couldn’t wait to read this one. I need to find out what happened to Maci and her friends. I honestly love this series and I adore all the characters. The second in the series did not disappoint.
The Story & Characters:
The story starts after Nova has run away and Maci is now a Super. She is on probation for now and will be able to go on light missions. What Maci really wants is to find her Twin sister and bring her home. She is aware that both Nova and Maci aren’t suppose to be alive, one twin is usually killed because it was determined that one twin will always be evil. I loved the relationship between Nova and Maci. I was worried that Nova wasn’t going to be likable but I loved her. I love how the book was done Maci had a tendency to give me panic attacks because of how impulsive she is. Nova wasn’t what I was expecting. You get a lot more of the other characters also and I do adore them as well. They bring so much to the story. The Valiant had a lot of action and I found myself on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next. I also thought it was great how you really get to see how someone can choose to be good instead of evil. The end…OMG the end! I honestly read the next book as soon as this one was finished because I just couldn’t wait.
This is one of my all time favorite series. I adore Cheyanne and love her writing style. She has an amazing way of telling a fantastic story. I love her spin on this work and the supers. I can’t recommend this series enough, so much action, adventure and just enough romance to keep you reading every word and turning every page.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
