Multi-volume, multi-genre author Stewart Hoffman introduces us to his continuation of the Bug Boys saga:
The fantastic superhero adventure that began with The Bug Boys continues! Alex Adams and Ian Harris take on Blake Blackhart, a disgraced Oxford professor. He discovers the boy’s source of power and plots to use the Secti’s alien technology to wreak havoc across the galaxy.
With a proper real-life supervillain in the village, the boys must step up their superhero game if they are to put a stop to the professor’s nefarious schemes. Along the way, they make new friends, and they encounter new bugs and superpowers. With the fate of the galaxy in the balance, the boys dig deep within themselves to truly understand what it means to be a hero!
I enjoyed this story a great deal. More great writing and an expanded cast of characters. The little robots are really beginning to grow on me. I am pretty sure I don't want them growing in me, although it is an interesting thought.
If you liked the first book, then you will love this one also. Stewart has nice terse writing, he wastes very few words. There is description enough for perfect scene-setting and the dialog is very funny at times and rather poignant at other moments. Some real-life issues are part of the story, without overwhelming it.
I award The Bug Boys vs. Professor Blake Blackhart a score of 5 stars! I loved the story and hope there is more to come.
