By: Justin D’Ath
Lost World Circus Series
Colt has a secret, he has superpowers, only his best friend knows this about him. The problem with superpowers is that it is difficult to gauge his own strength. When he is attacked by a very expensive Rat Dog the consequences are disastrous. Officer Katt from the Department of Rat Flu Eradication believes he did it on purpose. She is eager for revenge against Colt. Then one of the things Colt loves most in the world is taken. He knows she is behind it but how to prove it? No matter what Colt and his friend Birdy won’t give up, even though it seems Colt’s superpowers have also gone.
Colt is struggling to adapt to his powers, whilst trying to keep them secret. The world D’Ath has created is a bleak one, there are very few animals and so a circus is an amazing thing, all these rare animals, things we take for granted. It is an intriguing world. The background for the story – the Rat Flu, is also interesting and I’m curious to see where D’Ath takes this. Full of action and baddies you really want to see get beaten, (Officer Katt seems really nasty). An entertaining read.
