Bestselling author Patrick Carman delivers his first novel for teens with a page-turner that explores the dark side of having a superpower.

You are indestructible. Three whispered words transfer an astonishing power to Jacob Fielding, a power that changes everything. At first, Jacob is hesitant to use the power, unsure of its implications. But there is something addictive about testing the limits of fear.

Then Ophelia James, the beautiful and daring new girl in town, suggests they use the power to do good, to save others. But with every heroic act, the power grows into the specter of a curse. How does one decide who lives and who dies?

In this nail-biting novel of mystery and dark intrigue, Jacob must walk the razor-thin line between right and wrong, good and evil, and life and death. And time is running out. Because the Grim Reaper doesn’t disappear, he catches up.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma Lairson | 2/19/2014

    " This was such a good book.In the middle it was a little hard too figure out what was going on but everything turned out okay and the book ended in a nice close. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book Worm | 2/12/2014

    " Overall this was a good book. It was easy to read and nothing dragged on. But still... when I read the back of the book I expected so much more. I won't give details since I don't like to ruin the book for other people who haven't read it...so sorry if this review is kind of vague. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 2/9/2014

    " Characters were annoying and plot became boring and slow. Didn't have the desire to finish it. Only made it halfway through before giving up. The premise was promising and the idea was unique, but it just didn't follow through with good characters, dialog or plot. Big red buzzer on all three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/2/2014

    " Curious book - boy has the power of invincibility that he thinks he can transfer to save people, like a superpower. But, each transfer takes its toll. Fascinating religious thread/implications. Weird and interesting connection to Houdini. Very thought-provoking, definitely disturbing in parts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ♥Kelsi♫ | 1/12/2014

    " this book was too long for me, like i don't mean like LONG but the story didn't get to the point. When you read it it's like the suspense is not consistent and you keep on waiting for the exciting part to come, but it doesn't. i didn't like it at all, and the ending was too predictable. "

    " an absolutely amazing book. best i've read in a while. "the diamond," Jacob's power, was one of the most original ideas i've ever read. the book was well put together and quite funny. *vulgar language not suitable for younger readers.* "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 4/7/2012

    " It was Asoka book starting. SUPER confusing, REALLY hard to understand, VERY mysterious and UBER just not a good thing. Creepy, Jacob and Milo had to kill Oh 27 times, mostly electrocution and it's just not right, how she was all monetary and suicidal and stuff. Just not right. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/10/2011

    " This book was good, although I didn't get the title. I still don't know how it is related o the book. This book's story was well introduced, and well ended. It had a bit of suspense... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauri | 3/18/2011

    " I am giving this a 4.5. It was a really good plot. I think middle schoolers would love the action, complexity, and multiple themes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niky | 3/2/2011

    " Surprised me, it was better then i thought it would be by long. It was all death and evil power, just one power and a friggin cool one. Then somebody goes crazy and all hell breaks loose as they have to kill her a million times but worry they may kill her one too many times on accident. Woops. "
