Prah & Constantine Review: KINETIC by S.K.Anthony

Welcome to the Prah & Constantine Monthly Review. This month Nana picked The Luminaries KINETIC by S.K. Anthony.

Let me first begin by saying I love Superheros! I always wanted to be one, and Kinetic is raging with super powers. S.K. Anthony has the ability to make it sound realistic and scientific how these people evolved with unimaginable powers such as healing, hypnotizing, fire-beams charging out of their hands, disappearing, and more. Our main character Annie has strength, great strength. The petite Annie can wrestle anyone and anything and come out on top. The big problem is, their power has a draining effect on their bodies.

The Blurb:
 Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.

Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.

A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything

Now that you all read the blurb, I can say Kinetic is a fast paced read and held my interest. I especially liked the despicable Nick Logan, enemy number one. He was one pissed-off dude that you have to love. He was sexy and lethal all in one. I admit, I have a thing for 17 year-old, Kevin, who can disappear and reappear anywhere, cool. I'm drawn to witty sarcasm and Kinetic has some of that. S.K. Anthony spins an intriguing tale. I did figure out who the bad guy was, but that's okay. It was interesting and somewhat typical as to why he was doing what he was doing. Remember I don't like leaving spoilers. If you're interested, I highly suggest reading Kinetic. 

What Super Power Would You Pick If You Could Only Pick One?

Now Jump Over to Nana Prah's Blog and read her Review.



  1. Hi, Cathrina...

    Cool to read about superpowers and a very exciting book! I need to contact SK.... I'd like to feature this in my A-Z challenge.

    Thanks for the review and tip!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

    1. We received another snowstorm here in Buffalo last night...yuck...

  2. Sounds like an awesome read - thanks for the recommendation. :)

  3. Fantastic review, Cathy. You said it all. Kevin was awesome and from what I gather, his book is next in the series. Looking forward to it. Is there anyone who has never wanted to be a superhero?

  4. This is such a great book! I get so excited when I read how much others liked it, too. Nick Logan is definitely one of my book crushes. And SK's next book, Static, is all about Kevin, so you should be happy with it.

  5. Cathrina, thank you so much for the review ;)
    Since I'm all involved in my "Kevin world" at the moment my answer is of course teleporting. That's the superpower I choose. I like how you and Nana are doing the joint reviews, really cool idea. :D

  6. It is truly a fun ride reading this book. The ending really has some great action and the best part is when you are done it isn't over, there is another book coming out soon.

  7. Such a great review! Sounds like a book I could get behind! Super power with side effects, a plot twist that can take you in many directions! Excellent!

  8. Great review.
    When I read the blurb, I could see Annie hesitating. Yay for tension!

  9. Great review! I'm also a fan of witty sarcasm, so it's cool to know that some of that is in Kinetic!

  10. Great review! Makes me want to finally read it. I have it on my Kindle waiting for me :)

  11. Kinetic sounds super-charged with all this power at work!
