Publisher's Summary

Despite having their secret revealed, the residents of Melbrook Hall return to Lander University for another year in the Hero Certification Program. Good thing the focus of this year is teamwork, because with their origins known, they'll have to lean on each other more than ever.
Now finally sophomores, their curriculum expands, allowing them to train in the majors that Heroes specialize in. The new classes will test their minds, bodies, and determination in ways never anticipated. In a year filled with the unveiling of secrets, unexpected entanglements, and, of course, super-powered battles, who will be left standing is anyone's guess. Because if all that weren't enough, more light is being shed on last year's kidnapping attempt, and the results point at something far bigger than mere rogue educators.
Something that isn't even close to being over with.

Far better than Book 1

This was far better than Book 1, and I'm glad I pushed through it for this one. There's still some things about Drew Hayes's writing style that I dislike (e.g. the way he skirts around the main point of a section to provide mock suspense, the slow pacing of action, ), but these were far diminished (if not completely alleviated) in comparison to the first book. I actually cared about the characters this time around, and I felt like their motivations were much more compelling. Kyle McCarley's range of character voices is also amazing (and necessary given the massive cast of characters) - you can most often figure out which character is speaking even before they are introduced by name. Looking forward to listening to books 3 and 4!

Mostly good

Overall the book is pretty good. There is a bunch of fat that could have been cut out as the story can waffle on. Most of the characters are engaging with the exception of Nick who comes across as a typical Larry Stu making most of his scenes very predictable. Unfortunately, both the Nick issue and waffling are symptoms of the same lack of rigorous editing.

The performance was great with each character being read distinct.

If you enjoyed the first book then you'll likely enjoy this one. It's not great literature but it's still pretty good.

great second story

we continue to see our characters grow in unexpected ways. and new developments in their life outside of Lander affects their whole year. Kyle McCarley does a wonderful job reading and acting out every single character with their own distinct voices and personalities coming through amazingly.

Holy crap that was good!

I really enjoyed year 1 and was anxiously awaiting year 2, but I would never have anticipated how beyond satisfying it would be.

I rarely have time to sit down and read but am seriously considering reading year 3 instead of waiting a month. For the moment, my soul is happy and satiated. For the moment...

It's ok.

I'm not sure who the story is meant for. It moves like a young teen story, it has lots of exposition like a young teen story but it has language and some content that absolutely isn't young teen. Despite these failings, but because of the clear world-view and pace of storytelling the book and its predecessor have found a place in my library. They are not challenging at all but are entertaining enough to listen through to the end with no regrets about the purchase.

Okay

Still much too long, and the way they talk to each other is much too... clever. It could have done with dumbing down to make them seem more normal.
