It just keeps getting better

This is one of those where you really want to get the audio version, between the author's comic prose and the narrator's delivery, it really is a laugh a minute. This book is basically going to appeal to anyone who's vaguely geeky, male or female, especially if you're in your thirties or forties. With references from Tolkien and Pratchett to Ghost Busters and Star Wars, Phipps manages the kind of nerdy humour that leaves you laughing out loud, without needing to put anyone down or resorting to constant toilet humour. On top of all this the book actually has a genuinely interesting comic book type plot. I can't think of another author I can compare Phipps to because while there are authors who write similar stories, as a female a lot of the supposedly humorous writers leave me cold but I think most people who like shows like The Big Bang Theory would find themselves laughing along to this.

A worthy sequel!

This second instalment of The Supervillainy Saga is every bit as good as the first. I'm a fan of superhero books in general and I think I now consider this series to be my favourite of the genre.

This story turned out to be exactly the sort of thing I expect to get when I pick up a superhero comedy novel. It was packed with action, had plenty of memorable characters, and was dripping with hilarious humor(mostly of the sarcastic variety). The plot was good and C.T. Phipps has an engaging writing style.

This picks up where the first book ended with Gary Karkofsky AKA Merciless:The Supervillain Without Mercy returning to his home town after escaping a super prison on the moon. Due to a transporter glitch a month of his life has disappeared. To make matter worse the city has been overrun by hordes of zombies and Mandy, his wife, has been kidnapped by a rival supervillain. Gary has to rustle up his evil henchmen, Cindy and Diabloman, to help him set things right. There was also the minor problem of having to save the world from being destroyed by a doomsday cult who are eager to summon their demonic master into the mortal realm!

The story was a ton of fun. I loved the banter between Merciless and his team and was caught up in the crazy happenings of the story. Gary and his friends are easy to love despite their villainous natures!

The ending was a bit of a shock. The best thing is that it almost guarantees a sequel. One which this guy will definitely be reading as soon as it gets released.

I doubt anyone could have read this better than Jeffrey Kafer did. He was a perfect fit for Gary and really got the tone of the story.
