Review of Joshua Dread, The Dominion Key
»
»
Joshua Dread, the Dominion Key, is the best book that Lee Bacon has written in the series! The author has created an adventure that would fit in a superhero's diary!

Let me introduce the gang: Joshua, the main character, has the power of sending an electric wave in any direction. Sophie, Captain Justice's daughter, has superhuman strength. Milton, Joshua's best friend, is the only person in the group who doesn't have a superpower. Marinda became their friend when they all joined the Alliance of Infinity, which is the name of the group. She can look into the future, so she can predict her enemy's next move.

The story starts in the food court at the mall. They discover there is another supervillain there when nachos, ketchup, and mustard start flying through the air. Along with the supervillain, who can control objects with her mind, there is a thug and the four friends' all-time enemy, nFinity. nFinity used to be one of the superheroes but betrayed them by siding with Phoenix Vex, an evil multi-billionaire. nFinity drops a list at the food court. The list holds names of the gadgets that Vex wants the supervillains to get so they can create a weapon to stop time and destroy the universe.

The superheroes get sent away to Alabaster Academy for safety purposes. One by one, things on nFinity's list are disappearing. There's only the Dominion Key left, so they take a journey to save it. Will they beat Phoenix Vex to it?
