    1. This issue was a relief after the last one -- with the team broken up, each of the kids teams up with some of the adult heroes to get more training, and to subtly (or not so subtly) get some counseling about the disasters of the last issue. They start to work out how they really feel about each other, and how they want to move forward. And just when things are starting to edge toward a new normal, an entirely new and unexpected threat raises its head.Warning, this one ends on a cliffhanger. It w [...]

    2. In the wake of the heavy and intense Cruel Summer, Team-Ups is refreshingly light. The narrative is broken into a series sub-stories, each told from the point of view of its central character. The format offers the opportunity to dig more deeply into the life of each member of the Hero Squad. The plot gives due attention to each lingering question or personal struggle, all weaving through the Squad's journey as they cope with the fallout of the last book's events. The result is a light but satis [...]

    3. In only a matter of months, I have vacuumed up every word Michael Bailey has written in the Action Figures series. Five books, and I can honestly not remember a series that has made such a fanboy of me well, since I was a twelve-year-old reading LOTR for the first time.I have come to think of the kids of the Hero Squad as people I know personally and care for, and that is due entirely to Michael Bailey's wonderful writing, who effortlessly blends the fantastical with the normal like no author I [...]

    4. Oh. My God, I think authors just enjoy torturing their readers - do you hear me, Author?This is a followup to the first four, really enjoyable Action Figures novels, about a set of teenagers who develop super-abilities. This novel is a bit different as it was more of a set of short novellas all strung together teaming up disparate parts of the Hero Squad with others in their own little spotlights, and as such, it was very enjoyable! The cliffhanger ending though made me erupt in a Vader-esque "N [...]

    5. I like this book much less than the previous one for two reasons; Firstly it is written in a episodic way with several POV (unlike the previous ones) and I think the author isn't very good at handling that format. The voices isn't different enough between POV which is a let down.Secondly, the author seems to have taken flak over the last books darker and more serious tone and toned it down a fair amount. That is really bad, because the effects and consequences from that book still is there and " [...]

    6. Love this seriesI thought this series would be lighthearted YA fluff, which is fine since I read a lot of YA for fun. It's fun, but also mature and serious, with the teen supers facing some devastating events both at home and as school and "at work". The really have to prove themselves for the adult superstore taken them seriously, and various characters have to deal with parental divorce, a cheating parent, persona tragedies, tensions that nearly break them up, one coming out, even a psychotic [...]
