The Gathering is the second book in the Quantum Prophecy series. Danny is missing an arm and has lost his powers. Colin tries to become the new Titan when his identity is discovered. To keep his and Danny's families safe, they are all moved to Sakkara in Kansas, the new headquarters of super human heroes. Solomon Card has resumed his identity as Paragon and is training the young recruits to be superheroes. They are needed sooner than they think when Dioxin begins a reign of terror in order to exact revenge from Paragon who he blames for becoming disfigured and almost dying. This is an excellent continuation of the story that began in The Awakening. I'm looking forward to the final resolution to the story in The Reckoning. ( )

Ah, the superhumans are back and the action picks up where the first book leaves off. This is a really good read. Colin and his friends must continue their fight against Cross. This has a lost of suspense and a lot of action. The characters developed and one has to come to terms with a disability that he suffered in the first book. Colin also discovers that he has some hidden powers. I have to say, the powers he gets are fantastic!

Not only does Colin and Co. have to face off against an old enemy, one of his friends, someone that he trusts with his life is betraying him and the rest of the superhumans. Not only does Colin have to deal with all of this, but there seems to be a cult that wants him and the rest of the superhumans to join it. But that's not all Colin has to deal with. At the end of the book, he has to make a choice that has no winning side. No matter what he picks, it has horrible consequences. A choice that will destroy him.

Over all I really liked this book. I just had one small problem with it. Towards the end of the book, the cult isn't mentioned all that much. I'm sure they'll come up in the third book. I just wanted more of this cult.

This is a really good series and I highly suggest you read it. This is a series you have to read in order. ( )

Slightly better then the first book, although some of the story is a bit un-stimulating.

I still enjoyed this one very much and looking forward to reading the next one. ( )

Having thwarted Max Dalton’s scheme to drain the world’s superhumans of their powers, Colin Wagner has taken on the mantle of Titan and, with partner, Diamond, is using his newfound abilities to rid the London streets of crime. But our young heroes’ lives are irrevocably changed when an unknown adversary leaks their secret identities to the world. Forced to flee to the United States with their friend Danny Cooper, who is coping with the loss of his arm and the dark prophecy surrounding his future, the trio must learn to master their powers and work together if their mysterious foe is to be defeated.

New heroes are introduced, old friends and enemies return, and life-changing choices will be made in this second installment of Michael Carroll’s superhero saga that dares to ask the question: Will Quantum’s Prophecy come to pass?
