Summary

The third thrilling adventure book from best-selling, award-winning authors Greg James and Chris Smith.

You don't need superpowers to be a hero...or do you?

Despite having no powers, Murph Cooper is part of the best team in the Heroes' Alliance. So when supervillain Magpie declares all-out war, Kid Normal and the Super Zeroes lead the charge.

But Magpie believes that a powerless hero is no hero at all. And he's building a dastardly device to prove it.

When Kid Normal enters the shadow machine, the world will never be the same....
