Comet Cove is a city where everyone gets their own special powers when they come of age. Everyone, that is, except for Samael Judd. Ordinary in a world of extraordinaries, Sam faces the possibility of exile, should his powerlessness be discovered. When a Fragment doesn’t accept themselves, their Aura doesn’t give them the powers they’re promised, making them a Blank.

Ordinary in a world of extraordinaries, Sam faces the possibility of exile, should his powerlessness be discovered. When a Fragment doesn’t accept themselves, their Aura doesn’t give them the powers they’re promised, making them a Blank. But a solution exists: If Sam can confront the part of himself that he would rather stay buried, he just might be in the clear. That is until he finds out he’s revealed his secret to the wrong person. (JUDD is not a comic—oh, how I wish—but it is within the superhero genre to a degree, so comic comes up in the categories. Perhaps one day.)

    JUDD is a fresh take on the superhero genre that encourages readers to be themselves and to find power in who they are. With its interesting premise, relatable characters, and intriguing storyline, JUDD is a powerful, heart-wrenching read. This is one book that I didn’t want to end and I can’t wait for the next installment! (I voluntarily wrote this review and it's separate from the full review I posted on my review site.

    A 'high school for heroes' tale about the power of accepting who you are paired with some unique world building... Welcome to Aries High, a school for those with unique powers but in this world they are known as Fragments.

Welcome to Aries High, a school for those with unique powers but in this world they are known as Fragments. The only problem is our main character and narrator Samael Judd doesn't appear to have any powers... That is without mentioning the many pressures he faces for someone his age from stepping out of his older brother's shadow to even making the basketball team and while he does his best to hide a lack of powers he's also concealing his sexuality. If both are revealed the repercussions could be disastrous, at least to him anyway. There are only a few he can fully trust and confide in - perhaps the most realistic thing about the social politics of high school, something this story captures well. There are some unique and interesting concepts in this world of Fragment's and that world building is something I want to see more of. Terminology and abilities like 'technomancy' and 'magnekenisis' sound cool and these concepts are only really touched upon as most of the story focuses on Judd's journey and his high school life which is most probably just the beginning. The symbolism paired with the struggle to accept one's self is what you'll find at the centre of this tale and it's bravely executed. From fighting bullies to borrowing a new girl's magical dragon to pretend you have powers - as I said cool concepts, there are even some awesome references to video games and music. On a few occasions there were moments where scenes felt crowded with quite a number of characters present so it was a little difficult to follow and transitions between scenes did occur rather abruptly but overall Judd is a unique story full of drama that captures coming of age, explores social issues and celebrates diversity.

    A well written novel by a brilliant author. He is very creative and brings a fresh look for a genre that started to get stale. This story is a treat for anyone who gets to read it. The characters have a dynamic between them that reflects every high school kid. The only thing I had to look out for was how biased the story telling is. It is like you hear one side of the story that the main character has built to benefit himself as much as possible. Which that is something seen by many teenagers.

It is like you hear one side of the story that the main character has built to benefit himself as much as possible. Which that is something seen by many teenagers. The fight scenes are described to the point where you can see it in your mind. I enjoyed the fact that the main character doesn’t carry himself with seriousness to the point where he is insufferable, but instead is serious when he needs to be. It is fun and creative as I said before. Again I repeat it is a breath of new life that is following in the footsteps of other writers that seek to make superheroes seem more human.

Toombs & Erika Schulze is a Teen/Young Adult supernatural, superhero fiction; book 1 in The Fragmented Chronicles series. Samael Judd lives in a community dedicated to beings that have supernatural powers. In order to stay in Comet Cove he must come into his own powers or face exclusion from his friends and family. Sam must face that his owning up to the secret he is hiding will allow his powers to show and determine his future. He shares his secret with a select few, but this is not enough and ultimately he realises that he chose the wrong person in which to confide. This is a story filled with the angst of normal teenage life; high school, sports tryouts, romantic interests and the bullying clique. Add in the turmoil that Sam is experiencing with hiding his sexual orientation and masking that he doesn’t yet have his powers allows for a good teen drama read. The premise of this book is spot on. Using the supernatural element to buffer the angst of the main character coming out to his friends, family and community was cleverly thought out. I found some of the teen drama elements, quantity of characters and dialogue a little hard to follow, meaning for me the story was a slower read than I had wanted it to be. This is more than likely a cultural and age issue on my part more than anything. However the main character is well written and I felt for him as he struggled with the decisions he had to make. The authors have dropped some serious bread crumbs for continuing the series, although for me this wasn’t developed enough in this first book and if I’m honest I would have preferred a longer book that wrapped up the story in one go rather than waiting for another installment. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy teen drama mixed with supernatural, superhero stories.

    It breaks my heart that this wasn't my cup of tea. I personally just didn't mesh with the writing/world but honestly if you're into books with complicated protagonists who don't always make the right decisions and people with superpowers and generally queer sci-fi then I would definitely recommend this to you!

    JUDD is a refreshing take on a coming of age story. It's a unique super hero tale chock-full of loveable and diverse characters and a storyline that will make you smile one minute and pull at your heartstrings in another.
