Fans of supervillains and superheroes rejoice! The Cloak Society is a middle grade action novel that tells the story from the villain’s point of view. This novel blurs the line on many topics and addresses the fact that many things in life are a lot grayer than one thinks. While addressing some coming-of-age issues and the need to think and choose for yourself, this book packs a good punch. Top-notch and quality plot pacing propels this story along and a cast of honest, genuine, and varied characters give it heart. This book is the first in a series and can be enjoyed by not only younger readers, but also by teens because the tone and protagonist have a mature feel. Highly recommended!
