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 Cloakand what, exactly, he's been fighting for.
Jeramey Kraatz has wanted superpowers ever since he opened his first comic book as a kid. He attended Texas Christian University and the MFA writing program at Columbia University. The Cloak Society is his first novel. Jeramey lives in Texas, where he works in the animation industry.
