    A bunch of villains, or the “Vindico” as they like to be called, recruit (read: kidnap) 5 teenagers with attitude.(Okay, one's a tween but I just wanted to make a Power Rangers reference. Sue me.)Anyway, each of these kids are chosen because they both posses the potential proclivity for different kinds of powers (such as telepathy, super strength, telekinesis, agility, and technology) AND all have been abandoned or socially isolated in some form. They are offered lessons and supplements to n [...]

    X-men meets the Breakfast Club? Doesn't that sound exciting or what? I was interested when I heard about The Vindico in the beginning of the year, and I was excited to finally read it when I saw it on the shelves. Unfortunately, The Vindico just didn't work for me on so many levels. The concept was fresh, but the execution was just disappointing. Perhaps it would have been better suited as a lower-middle grade novel rather than young adult with its simple writing style; the plot was fun but also [...]

    As an older reader more than a few years removed from their teenage years, I wasn't sure how a book targeting a younger demographic would appeal to me. It took one chapter for me to get hooked on this book. The storytelling is fast-paced but still allows the reader to understand and relate to the characters. The protagonists are presented realistically and honestly. They are not without flaws and they each have their own unique human qualities which allow for equal parts empathy and disdain for [...]

    I have to say I have a weakness for superhero stories. Not the traditional stories, mind you - your Supermans, Spider-mans, etc. But stories about non-traditional heroes. NEW heroes. Stories like the Evil Genius series by Catherine Jinks, or like the ones included in the anthology Who Can Save Us Now?, edited by John McNally and Owen King. The Vindico fits comfortably on the same shelf for me as those others I just mentioned. It tells the tale of a group of five teens who want more than anything [...]

    A book I finished reading from the 2013 Red Maple selection titled, "The Vindico" by Wesley King. Was a fun read. The book was about 5 teens who got kidnapped by "The Vindico" and became their proteges. The proteges were chosen to become the new members of The Vindico.They were trained and given something special that The League (supposedly the good guys) are keeping a secret from the rest of the world, but the villains knew about it and hated The League. When they were ready, The Vindico made t [...]

    Five teens are all kidnapped from the bedrooms by a group of super villians known as the Vindico who are trying to conquer the League of Heroes. All of the teens have problems-- James has been dumped by his girlfriend, Hayden has been all but abandoned by his mother, Sam is generally insecure, Lana has been making poor life choices, and Emily is more interested in computers than in socializing at school. The teens are all to be mentored by a villain who shares some of their characteristics, and [...]

    Sometimes a book is amazing, and it's amazing in a very deep, literary way. Several essays have been written explaining why The Great Gatsby or Frankenstein are good books, or even more recent works like Catcher in the Rye.But sometimes a book is not very literary, and yet it still is fully amazing. The Vindico is great because it doesn't give you time to ponder what you like about it, or what devices the author is implementing, it just takes you on a wild ride with incredible characters. Someti [...]

    So,imagine that your life is going perfectly, when you suddenly get kidnapped by the most infamous organization ever. That's what happens to these five kids, who know nothing about each other, are taken by the Vindico. But things get interesting when the teens are offered super powers! (BTW: in this world, super heroes exist.) Of course, to get these powers, they have to join the villians and go against what they've been morally taught their whole lives. Now they have to decide what to do, and t [...]

    It was a fun and enjoyable read. I really liked the premise of the book. With superhero movies doing so well I'm surprised there aren't more books like this.

    I thought that this book was totally outgoing. It had so much excitement in it. If the real world had super heroes, i would really be upset to not have powers. Emily is my favorite character because she has so much skill and intelligence. If i was Sam i would also be scared and wondering what my family is doing while i'm gone.Anyways i thought it was awesome and anyone that didn't read this book should read it because you will really love it.

    I read this book because my friend said it was good and I wanted yo try it. In this book a group of regular kids get captured for a unique reason. They get transported to a mansion where they get trained to battle. They battle against the heros because they're mentors make them. Closer to the end they started to like battleing them. They got so much stronger as they got trained and trained! This book is a really good book to read, I think you guys should read it!

    This was fun! It was also thin and silly and incomprehensible in a predictable way. Think Marvel meets X-men teen style. The characters had all the depth of most super heroes and super villains well, maybe more and I liked them a lot. The book should have ended with a sneak preview of the next book. I expect to see the Baron's prediction come true, which is sure to be entertaining.

    I don't know if I particularly enjoy reading about Superheroes and Super Villains, but it was definitely a good book. And I almost have to read the second one.

    This book was received free from the publisher as part of the Advance Reader programThis book is aimed at the YA (Young Adult) audience although I found it an interesting read.Almost like the Justice League this dystopian world has two groups of heroes / anti heroes.Five young adults are kidnapped by individuals with great powers. They are then advised that they have been chosen to be mentored and become members of their group who are the enemies of the famed League of Heroes. They call themsel [...]

    Meh. Kinda interesting take.

    Great super villains in training + a little bit of teens wrestling with their conscience about whether they want to be villains or not. My own teen stayed up way past her own bedtime (of course she did) to finish this one and then told me that I HAD to read it. She rarely speaks to me with that much enthusiasm unless there is an iPhone or iPad involved in the conversation so I got right on it.Wesley King does have a great sense of humour and the cast of characters he has created in his little tr [...]

    I am not ashamed to admit that I will forever hold a special place in my heart for superhero novels. So when I saw this book in the library, I was excited to get back to the good old days when I deeply enjoyed books like these. But I was disappointed. This book is suited for people my age, but I felt really detached from the story line. While the 5 characters were all unique, I had a hard time differentiating the bad guys. The villains (The 'Vindico') are a secret organisation, that hold a high [...]

    I find several of the protagonist teenagers annoying, shallow distractions from the plot. It was somewhat interesting to see how the author handled a typical superhero/supervillain setup, though.Inevitably, comparisons to another prominent supervillain-focused series must arise -- the other being H.I.V.E. That series handles supervillains much better, making all but a few of the characters self-made rather than inexplicably-powered. In the book I am currently reviewing, several of the characters [...]

    I found this book humorous as the 5 teens are selected into training be a villain? They are merely humans with no super-powers but do after wearing cool suits. Their mentors are all super-villains who are train each teen to become their protegees. I enjoyed reading about the lives and history of each teen and how they overcame the problem (not going to spoil anything here :P)Besides these factors, I didn't love this book because the storyline was dull. I can honestly summarize the story in about [...]

    Give me a superhero and villain book anytime; I Love books like this. This book takes the reader into another perspective not the superhero side but the dark side (the villains) . I really enjoyed this book. This book was like reading a script from a DC movie, crazy fighting scenes, cool powers and some humor . It's a sure thing that I'm going to read the next one.

    Mikayla
    I enjoyed this book i think the author put the proper characters into the story. The chacter i liked hayden because he always knew what to say, when to say it. I found this book to be a bit less mature than other books in red maple. I liked the book other than the beginning because it was kind of hard to understand what the author was talking about. After that it became a lot more interesting.

    Louisa
    This was a great book, really interesting, and that the "bad guys" had important reasons for what they were doing, and that good and bad are in a grey area. And I can't wait for the sequel!

    "The Vindico" by Wesley King, is a book about five teenagers who are kidnapped by Villans. The five teenagers are given the choice deciding their fate whether to follow the villains or get punished. The five teenagers are chosen by the villains so that they can get superpowers. The five teenagers are trained with five mentors but have a hard time deciding on which side to fight on. In the end, the outcome is clear that they cannot live normal lives anymore and have to fight the league of heroes. [...]

    A young family member gave me this book—about a group of super-villains who are trying to build the next generation. In “The Vindico,” four teenagers and one preteen, all from different backgrounds, are forcibly recruited into a league of super-villains who have been fighting their enemies, the League of Heroes, for as long as anyone can remember. In a remote mansion, they are given superpowers as they attempt to learn the difference between good and evil and figure out which side they sho [...]

    This book was really good in a sense that you like drama and a little bit of weird things. In my opinion this book was good but could use a little bit more on the family portion. This book is realistic fiction for young Adults. The book has the right amount of action death and drama. I would recommend this book to anyone around 6th to 9th grade it is a good book for just a pick up and read sort of thing.

    If The Vindico was a superhero movie, it'd be Spiderman 3. Sure, I'd definitely call this book quirky fun, but at the same time there's an overload of characters, some repetitive scenes, and a rather messy climax that just feels like it's flipping back and forth every few chapters. So while I enjoyed its interesting and offbeat take on superheroes versus supervillains and wish it the best of luck, I can't say it's any more than an average read for me.I guess the first five chapters sum up my fir [...]

    This book for me was an amazing book that I can always re-read. The books premise is that kids get captured by a villian corporation named ´The Vindico' (hence the book name) and they have powers. They have to fight a hero corporation (For the life of me cannot remember) and after a while they escape.
