"The Vindico" by Wesley King is a fabulous book about five teenagers kidnapped by a group of supervillains called The Vindico. Their reason for the kidnapping? To create a younger set of villains (even supervillains get old and tired).
The villains have planned weeks of training, brainwashing and torture to get these teens to commit to joining The Vindico, but things don't always work out as planned in life. What the villains find out is that teens aren't that easy to manipulate, and these teens have minds of their own.
Two of the teens come from far less-than-ideal homes and the other three soon learn that there are problems they didn't know existed in their homes. The group does bond with each other and they are strong enough to decide for themselves what is right and wrong.
The action and suspense is nonstop. The characters are fairly well fleshed-out although the readers will probably get to know them better in the books to come. The plot is filled with twists and turns and the ending will leave readers wanting more.
