Everything you love about the television show, now with 100% more competent female characters. The first book in The Legion series hits all the right paranormal notes.
First off, it has two fine as hell demon-hunting brothers.
Jared and Lukas Lockhart — here represented by stand-ins Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles — are twin teens on a mission to kill a demon for family reasons. Part of an ancient order called the Legion, they kick paranormal ass, take names, and don't get along due to conflicting personalities even though they love each other. If this sounds familiar just roll with it because there's a 97% chance Lockhart boys are at least tangentially related to the Winchester clan.
But hold on because the main character is a girl, Kennedy Waters.
If you love Supernatural but feel your eyes are about to roll out of your head due to the disposable nature of their female characters, worry not. Kennedy might dip a toe into Mary Sue territory with the love triangle but she's a girl with agency, personality, and a bone to pick with the creatures of the night. Even if she isn't queen of the badasses. That title goes to Alara, the fourth Legion member and voodoo priestess extraordinaire.
Kennedy is special. Unless she's not. Okay she is but is it the right kind of special?
The five members of the Legion are passed down through family and each comes with a special power and with that power, of course, great responsibility. Each kid is born with an ability — in Kennedy's case a photographic memory — but until the mark appears on their wrist, the child is not chosen. So, similar to Sam Winchesters's story arc, the theme of is she the chosen one or not is a huge plot thread.
