Now, on to the excerpts:
Bethany, the other female member of their group arrived too. She always looked like she was sneaking around. It had to be something to do with her being an empath, because frankly Nicola had never seen anyone creep around like Bethany did. It was so annoying. Like, did she think they were going to eat her if she made a noise? Then there was just Jonathon to go. And apparently he had forgotten that they needed him to be able to start the meeting, because several minutes ticked by without any sign that he was going to arrive. For a genius, he had the worst memory in the world. Nicola drummed her fingers across the tabletop and picked at the fraying edge of her t-shirt. “Is he actually coming?” she said at last.
This not particularly exciting excerpt comes from the first meeting of the teenaged mutant crime fighting team where they receive their very first mission. Nicola is the secondary narrator, a sarcastic, reckless mutant with aquatic powers.
Excerpt number 2:
Eric let his power build up inside him. If Sam wanted to go head to head then he was going to give him a fight no one in this playground would ever forget. Cold poured out of his hands, wreathing them in a fog of cold steam. He rolled away from Sam’s attack, climbing to his feet. “Last warning,” he said. Sam laughed. Eric’s control snapped. He took a deep breath and blew it out into Sam’s face. Ice coated his eyelashes, hair, cheeks. His skin froze. Eric grabbed his wrist with a hand that he knew would burn with cold. Sam let out a yell as his hand connected. He stumbled back, terror filling his eyes.
This excerpt is from Eric's point of view. He's the main character in the book and, as you can probably tell, he has ice powers. In this scene he's getting into a fight at school defending another mutant from the school bully.
