Distinct heroes have risen! Fate brings them together and reveals powers and abilities beyond human imagination: heightened senses, telepathic abilities, and revelations that will shock you to the core. Follow The Omicron Six by Endy Wright and be blown away by the ingenuity of science, the brutality of humans, and the power of family and true friendship.

Cooper Callister is bright and good-natured but doesn’t speak (or so they thought). Coupe Daschelete is scrawny and nicknamed Single for being extremely poor. Additionally, he has a very traumatic and disturbing past. On a fateful day, Coupe saves Cooper from a bully, leading them to become friends. Cooper can hear thoughts and has super strength, while Coupe is super quick. How? With questions burning in their minds, a bond is made. The unusual pair faces both physical and emotional dangers that push them, test their abilities, teach them, strengthen their bond, and ultimately lead them to the origin of their existence. What they find is truly astonishing. What are they? Are they the only ones? Is the world truly ready for them?

This book navigates the trials of two characters: one suffers from abandonment, abuse, and neglect but radiates uncanny and admirable positivity, while the other enjoys the bliss of a happy home but is in torment of his inability to keep the voices out. The friendship the boys strike and the trust between them is so exciting to read. Although this book focuses a bit on abuse, Endy gives his characters such great will that at the end of the book they are fully developed, from Cooper’s parents to other characters later introduced. There is a question of morality, as some decisions made by some of these characters are questionable, but overall, the elements of this book are simply amazing—from the simple, yet enthralling, style of writing to the amazing plot, relatable characters, distinctive scenes, and captivating storyline. This is a science fiction book that was exceptionally well-written and edited, with no grammatical or spelling errors.

I appreciate how Endy infused humor into this book. I absolutely love Coupe’s character; his vibe and way with words is amusing to read. Also, it is absolutely brilliant how Endy steadily builds his scenes and then takes an unexpected, but fantastic, turn. I also appreciate how vivid the descriptions of the scenes are; I was immediately transported into the world of The Omicron Six. This book has such a gripping effect that engages the reader until the end. The ending of the book is both hilarious and satisfying. In particular, the cliffhanger from the excerpt of the sequel is riveting. I absolutely cannot wait to read the sequel.

I award this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. I applaud the author because the book is exceptional, very interesting, and impressive, even though it is his first novel and the first in its series. Indeed, this is a powerful book that shows us that no matter the evil, there is always light in the dark and that family isn’t just about blood relations but also about love, acceptance, and trust. The book contains some vivid fight scenes as well as abuse and molestation scenes/descriptions. It also contains vulgar language, so it is not suitable for a younger audience. I would recommend it to lovers of science fiction works with compelling characters and a dose of humor.

This is such a great review! I would love to know how the boys got their superpowers.
But the path I’ve chosen has always been the right one, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. :)
