Max is wonderful mainly because he's so rude without being coarse. Too often rebellious teenage boys in young adult fiction are so self-centred and so much in love with themselves the reader starts wanting the bad guy to win just to shut the male lead up. But I was routing for Max from the start till the end. The fact that Max uses his 'super powers' for his own gain is wonderfully refreshing and, let's face it, more realistic. But Max does use his powers for good if the need arises and you never feel like he's a 'bad guy' even when he's fanlanting his abilities and enjoying the attention he receives because of it.
The only thing I didn't like was the way the bad guy kept coming back to life. It was funny the first couple of times then it just became dull. The fact that Max mentions this doesn't take away the 'oh get on with it' feeling that I had towards the end.
Overall a great sequel and I am very much looking forward to the next one as there is no way Nick could leave us hanging on an ending like that!
This is a cracking romp and I flew through the story.
I'm unsure of the lower end of the target audience of this as there is some very minor swearing (such as bloody hell) which would make me reluctant to recommend it to my 10 year old nephew, even though I think he'd love the action and adventure. I certainly enjoyed it, the pace was high and it was very exciting.

5 stars would be too much for an awesome book. So difficult to write humorously about murder and death, revenge and deception, love and fear, nailed it, again. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Nick

Just as good as the first, loved every page. Grate characters especially Max's "almost" cartoon dog.
Eagerly awaiting Book 3.
