Review by

This is the first book of an amazing trilogy. I would recommend it to people aged between 10 and 16. It's about four children; Nico, Ketty, Ed and Dylan who all have psychological powers - I know what you're thinking: "This sounds like a stupid book with things like monsters and superheroes. Well, I promise you, it's not. The three books in the series ar The Set-Up, The Hostage and The Rescue.
