This is a decent novel about the mentors (Aquaman, Batman and Green Arrow) and their now-grown sidekicks (Tempest, Nightwing and Arsenal respectively). One of the better books in this DC Universe line of novels. ( )

More of a Roy Harper novel then anything else; Grayson dwells on the backstories of the former Speedy, Robin, and Aqualad with uneven results. The emphasis is on Harper, now Arsenal, for most of the novel with an interesting POV to the events of Green Arrows early days and his going off with GL in the classic O'Neil/Adams run. The present day story involves Harper's relationship with Cherise, thus making him the lynch pin for the whole story. The novel eventually shifts gears to GA and Nightwing, although their present-day investigation is less interesting and feels less important then Batman and Arsenal's global adventuring. Grayson keeps this part of the story light with a portrayal of Green Arrow that is more carefree (and frankly not as smart) then in most comics. Oddly, but to much comedic effect, allot of homoerotic quips are shot of by Ollie. By the time Aquaman and Tempest make their token appearance in the novel, Grayson has little time but to recap the former Aqualad's tempestuous history grant Aquaman little more then a scuffle with Deathstroke at novel's end. The inclusion of the underwater heroes seems tacked on just to pad out the novel and really should have been either left out, or the novel made longer to give equal time. Overall the novel is worth a read for the hardcore Green Arrow fans, but those wanting Batman or Aquaman adventures should look elsewhere. ( )
