Alex Knight struggles to find a place between superheroes and supervillains in this explosive sequel to The Cloak Society, which School Library Journal says has "the same wide appeal as Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson books."

The Cloak Society has just pulled off the greatest takedown in Sterling City's history--but twelve-year-old Alex Knight has turned his back on the supervillains who raised him, and is fighting for the other side. Working with the superheroes is easier said than done, though . . . especially when your new teammates aren't sure your days as a villain are over.

Praised by Publishers Weekly for its "rapid-fire, comic book-style action," the Cloak Society trilogy delivers high-stakes battles, extraordinary superpowers, and an original twist on the superhero stories readers know and love. Fans of the 39 Clues and the Alex Rider Adventures will be hooked!

Review quote

An original fantasy world with a detailed backstory and myriad intriguing characters. This debut novel is a strong start to a series that will likely find the same wide appeal as Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson books. --School Library Journal"

Back cover copy

Fallen heroes. Rising villains. The line between ally and enemy has been blurred.

Alex Knight was raised as one of the Cloak Society's most fiercely loyal young members. He eagerly awaited the day when Cloak would rule as the most feared villains in the world.

Then he met Kirbie, a junior member of the city's beloved heroes, the Rangers of Justice. Kirbie opened Alex's eyes to Cloak's true mission. Now Alex is determined to bring Cloak down. And there's no time to lose.

The Cloak Society has just pulled off the greatest takedown in Sterling City's history. Justice Tower is in ruins. And the Rangers of Justice have vanished.

Alex and Kirbie's only hope for defeating Cloak is to bring together the Junior Rangers and the other junior Cloak members who have turned their backs on their former leaders. But after years of hatred and enmity, fighting for the same side is easier said than done.
