Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After discovering the truth about their parentage in Masterminds (2014) they've been cloned from criminal masterminds as part of a twisted experiment Eli, Malik, Tori, and Amber are on the run and desperately lost. In their manufactured hometown of Serenity, New Mexico, they were carefully shielded from reality, but without any understanding of how the world actually works, they can only rely on their wits to get by. Desperate times call for desperate measures, however, and since they're imbued with the street smarts and problem-solving skills of their criminal parents, figuring out how to break into buildings and manipulate dimwitted adults is disturbingly simple. Though occasionally the kids' alternating first-person narratives sound too similar, Korman's cinematic adventure is packed with enough thrilling action and suspense to keep the pages turning. Additionally, he weaves in thoughtful questions. Does using their inborn abilities make the kids any better than their imprisoned progenitors? And at what point do desperate measures turn into crime? A late-breaking twist ensures another installment on the horizon in this highly entertaining series.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2016 Booklist"
