"Meet a sixteen-year-old superhuman: Agent Six of Hearts. He's the strongest, most effective agent in the Deck, a team of special agents fighting to uphold justice in a completely corrupt world. Six would be invincible...if not for a deadly secret. He is the product of an illegal experiment by the Lab--a ruthless division of the corporation that controls his world. When the Deck begins to investigate the Lab, Six walks a tightrope between his two worlds, trying to keep his origin secret. But then he meets Kyntak, a boy whose past equals his own."--dust cover flap.

Predictable

From my first impressions, the story itself is interesting, but the themes are extremely cliched. You know, pollution, gov't=good and corps=bad, hate all the rich people, all that sort of stuff. But it could be worse. At least the author isn't British.

UPDATE: Got bored, so I skipped to the end. Nothing there, no lesson, no moral, nothing. This story is as deep as a puddle in the Sahara Desert. It might be "cool" with all the action-y, hit-hit technology stuff, but there's no story on which it can be placed. It uses flawed logic and is completely boring.
