A School of X novel
I received an advance reader copy of this book from Aconyte Books via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
This story features Joshua Foley, a mutant student at the Xavier Institute who operates using the codename Elixir. Josh is attending the Institute in lieu of finishing out a jail sentence resulting from event in Palmgren’s earlier Outlaw: Relentless. Elixir is studying how to use his powers to be a healer, but is aware that he has other mutant abilities of undetermined strength.
After it becomes known throughout the school that Josh formerly belonged to an anti-mutant group, he is assigned with a small group of other students to go to the underwater research station X-41, where the crew will be tasked with performing repairs and maintenance on the little-used outpost. While at the station, the group comes under attack from underwater creatures with an unknown agenda. Josh will have to convince the other students of his change-of-heart regarding mutants while also learning how to harness his entire power set if the group is going to survive.
I gave The Siege of X-41 five stars. It’s a nice story of redemption and personal discovery, though the undersea setting made me a bit claustrophobic.
