Booklist Reviews 2016 August #1

The Zeroes, a group of six superpowered teen friends, discover that they aren't the only ones with talent when a new guy, who can meld a crowd into a deadly killing machine, comes to town with murder on his mind. One of the Zeroes, Kelsie, aka Mob, is afraid it's only a matter of time before she becomes just like this malevolent stranger, but the more immediate issue is how to stop him. In their sequel to Zeroes (2015), Westerfeld, Deborah Biancotti, and Margo Lanagan offer readers a story marked by nonstop action, a little romance, and a few dismemberment scenes. Reading the first book isn't essential, but helps in instances like knowing that Bellwether is also "Glorious Leader," since the latter becomes his moniker in the second book. This is standard but solidly written teen-superhero fare, although the final chapters stand apart for their moving treatment of the forgotten Zero, Anon, and for the cliff-hanger ending that will make trilogy fans itch for the third book.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2017 Spring

The Zeroes, a diverse team of supernaturally gifted teens, encounter strangers who wreak havoc with their own crowd-manipulating abilities--and warn of a much bigger threat. This second volume (Zeroes) accelerates the pace and ups the stakes with lots of action sequences, some truly scary. Development of the teens' platonic and romantic interpersonal dynamics (including one blossoming same-sex relationship) adds depth. Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

After the disastrous events of Zeroes (rev. 11/15), the diverse team of supernaturally gifted teens has set up the aptly named Petri Dish, a nightclub/social experiment where they can test and eventually master their powers in relative safety. It's the perfect place, since many of the Zeroes' abilities -- such as leader Nate's influence on the emotions of a crowd -- depend upon connecting energetically to a large group of people. Perfect, that is, until two superpowered strangers wreak havoc at the Dish with their own crowd-manipulating abilities. Wanting to prevent any more chaos, the Zeroes track down the strangers, only to learn of a much bigger threat. Now that readers know the main players, their powers, and their abilities' pitfalls, this second volume accelerates the pace and ups the stakes of the first book. Lots of action sequences, including a handful of truly scary scenes that would be right at home in a zombie flick, add to the suspense. (Spoiler: you really don't want to encounter a "swarm.") But it's not nonstop near-escapes and explosions. The authors develop the teens' platonic and romantic interpersonal dynamics (including one blossoming same-sex relationship), and it's these connections that both endanger the Zeroes and, ultimately, save them. A cliffhanger ending will leave fans eagerly awaiting the Zeroes' next adventure. katie bircher
