NZD $16.99

The stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling YA superheroes series.

The Zeroes are in disarray.
One of them has vanished into thin air.
One of them is in prison.
The rest of them are on the most-wanted list.
And something big is brewing.

After the deadly stand-off with Swarm, Bellwether is imprisoned and powerless while the rest of the Zeroes are scattered, on the run, and desperate. And Agent Phan of the FBI has a secret weapon up his sleeve.

A daring prison breakout reunites the team, and they're soon drawn to New Orleans where the Mardi Gras atmosphere promises enormous power to anyone who can tap into the crowds. There, an army of Zeroes is gathering around a charismatic leader whose plans are nothing short of cataclysmic.

Time is running out for the Zeroes, so they must learn to trust each other again and combine their powers for good - to avert the looming disaster.

A brilliant, action-packed conclusion to the superb Zeroes series.

'Nexus is intriguing high-octane drama.' - Kids Book Review
