The Cloak Society: An elite organization of supervillains graced with extraordinary powers. Ten years ago they were defeated by the Rangers of Justice and vanished without a trace. But the villains of Cloak have been biding their time, waiting for the perfect moment to resurface. And twelve-year-old Alex Knight wants to be one of them.
Alex is already a junior member, and his entire universe is Cloak’s underground headquarters, hidden beneath an abandoned drive-in theater in Sterling City, Texas. While other kids his age are studying math and history, Alex is mastering his telekinetic powers and learning how to break into bank vaults. His only dream is to follow in his parents’ footsteps as one of the most feared supervillains in the world. Cloak is everything he believes in.
But on the day of his debut mission, Alex does the unthinkable: he saves the life of a young Ranger named Kirbie. Even worse . . . she becomes his friend. And the more time he spends with her, the more Alex wonders about the world outside of Cloak—and what, exactly, he’s been fighting for.

The Cloak Society is not one of the best books I have read this year. The ending is fairly predictable and I didn’t really end up liking any of the characters all that much. There were many exciting moments which I enjoyed but in the end I thought it was all sort of mediocre. If anyone should read it, I would recommend it to kids in grades 4-6. It’s an okay book and I may pick up the sequel to see what happens but it’s really not a book that kids should seek out.
This book hits shelves October of 2012!
