We rejoin our unlikely heroes, after the fall of the evil Lambeth Government. Unfortunately, the demise of the Unity Government was the presage to a nuclear war with Russia, which devastated several Great Britain cities and killed untold people. Following a civil war between the rebels and the Government, order has been restored and Britain is slowly, inexorably clawing its way back to normality.
It's 2020 and our Asperger's Syndrome sufferer Paul Kelly is living the quiet life now, with his late brother's wife Jenni and her autistic son Ally, when evil starts to rear its ugly head again. A new terrorist group called the Revelationaries, who espouse similar philosophies to the toppled Unity Government is hell-bent on destruction and it seems only the tattered remnants of the "SubNormals" can stop them.
This is a thrilling, fast-paced story that brings us naturally to the third book in the series, which I am so looking forward to reading. I loved SubNormal, but Supernormal was another step up in my opinion. The writing was crisper, tighter and the action furious, without losing that wonderful character development that Kenyon did so well in SubNormal. As with the first book, the star of this book is definitely Paul Kelly, whose foibles and structured lifestyle give us, the reader, a fascinating glimpse into the world of someone who thinks differently to you and me.
I can highly recommend this excellent book and this series. It is a frightening peek into what the future might hold for us, if "good men do nothing". A great job Mr. Kenyon.
