Esper Files – Egan Brass

32493342In 19th century London, some people have developed amazing powers. They are known as Espers. But not all Espers are using their power for good. A group of skilled agents team up with a young girl with icy abilities to fight the dark forces that have kidnapped her brother.

The whole premise of Esper Files is very reminiscent of Heroes – people with special powers; a man who can learn other people’s abilities; a baddie who takes other’s abilities via the brain… It’s not very original. But that doesn’t make it bad. Although the basic ideas appear to be have been borrowed from somewhere else, the plot is different and enjoyable. The main characters could do with a little bit more development, but hopefully that will happen as the series continues, otherwise they’re likeable and easy to root for.

The writing itself is very juvenile. This is clearly a debut novel and that really shows in the writing (it’s very repetitive and basic). Despite this, it’s still very easy to follow and an enjoyable read.

I received a copy of this book from the team at Inkitt in exchange for an honest review.

    I was supposed to receive a copy for review and it got lost in the mail TWICE 😦 I’m glad to see a review for it! I was interested in knowing what others thought of it before giving it a go. Will you continue with the series? I think book two already came out or is going to be released soon.
