Tue 3rd Jan 2006

Michael Carroll Unleashes New Superhero NovelMichael Carroll's latest novel, The Quantum Prophecy, hits the shops today. It's part one of an original Superhero story, something that is very rare in novel format indeed.

LostCarPark has managed to sneak a preview copy and by all accounts it's brilliant. Everyone has been in a constant battle to get their hands on it next, and we've all devoured it at least twice by now.

The Quantum Prophecy by Michael Carroll.

Here is some official stuff:

No one knows what happened to Titan, Energy, Quantum, Paragon and their superhuman colleagues.

All anyone knows is that one day, following a ferocious battle with the evil Ragnarök and his army of supervillains and hired mercenaries, the superhumans - good and evil alike - simply disappeared.

All but three of the superhumans have not been seen or heard from since the battle. That was ten years ago.

The three remaining superhumans - all members of the super-team The High Command - have retired from active duty and refused to speak about the final battle against Ragnarök.

The disappearance is regarded as one of the great mysteries of our time...

...A mystery that is about to be uncovered by teenagers Colin Wagner and Danny Cooper, who have begun to develop strange powers of their own.

The Quantum Prophecy is the first book in The New Heroes, an exciting new adventure series from Michael Carroll and publisher HarperCollins.
