Overview


Critically acclaimed author Barry Lyga's middle-grade debut ARCHVILLAIN now in paperback!

Kyle Camden knows exactly where he was the night Mighty Mike arrived: sneaking around the fallow field behind Bouring Middle School, preparing one of his most ingenious pranks yet.

Which is why he couldn't tell anyone where he was. Or what he saw.

Those lights everyone saw in the sky weren't tiny meteors burning up in the atmosphere. They were some kind of strange, supercooled plasma that bathed the entire field -- including Kyle -- in alien energies.

Unfortunately, the energies also brought Mighty Mike to Earth. Kyle is the only one who knows that Mighty Mike is an alien. Everyone else thinks that Mike is just some kid who stumbled into the field, got beefed up on meteor juice, lost his memory, and decided to start rescuing kittens from trees. But Kyle knows the truth. And he'll do anything in his power to stop Mighty Mike, even if it means being an Archvillain!

    I really enjoyed this book. I liked how Mighty Mike steals the popularity (no offense to Kyle) and how Kyle has THREE PERSONALITIES! His personalities are: the Azure Avenger, the Blue Freak, and Kyle Camden, Mairi McTaggert's BFF. Kyle has always been smart with school as a bore, but now his brain can process so much information that he memorized Wikipedia just because he could. Kyle also has superpowers. He's almost invulnerable and can fly and break the sound barrier. At the end he saves the world from dirt monster ASE, which is caused by the unearthly plasma that hits him when he is trying to play a prank on Bouring Middle School. You see, he just wants to prove that Mighty Mike, the town superhero, is just another typical, oh, alien fraud. In the end, Archvillian is a thrilling read. Barry Lyga is currently on my favorite author list.

    One night, while playing a prank on the town's high school, Kyle Camden is exposed to plasma. From the plasma, he obtains superpowers. Awesome, right? Except for the fact that from the plasma appears a clumsy, really-bad-at-saving-the-world alien named Mighty Mike. Determined to prove who Mike really is, Kyle turns into a supervillain to show everyone the truth. When the world turns against him and the radiation from the alien puts his friend's life in danger, however, Kyle will have more to deal with than he ever imagined. Can Kyle save his best friend? Can he prove Mighty Mike is not who he says he is? A quick read for superhero fans, the characters are entertaining and memorable. The plot is simple, but fun to read. Those who like adventure, action, superheroes, and fantasy will enjoy reading ARCHVILLAIN.

    Adorable hero story

    Kyle Camden lives in the small town of Bouring, where nothing exciting ever happens. Until one strange night when the sky lights up with mysterious lights. All of a sudden, nothing is the same. Kyle discovers his body has developed so interesting powers. Even more perplexing is the arrival of a boy with similar powers, named Mighty Mike. Mike has been flying all over the nation saving lives, but Kyle knows there is something much more sinister going on. The question is, can Kyle exposed Mike for the fraud he is without making his own situation into something worse?

    A super, drippingly cute book. I am a HUGE fan of Barry Lyga, so I was totally expecting to love this book. But it was not like I thought it would be. There were totally some surprises that threw me off, and I still enjoyed the book. First of all, Kyle's voice is both wise and funny. Then there's the fact that he is a super genius and yet still struggles with the things normal boys do (like having "the talk" with his Dad). I loved how Kyle takes everyday techie objects and turns them into boy fantasy items. This is how I imagine boys ages 6-12 see their world all of the time. Very clever! Kyle's friend Mairi is also a nice touch, to give the story a slight feminine side. And with an ending that is sure to leave readers wanting more, elementary school age boys will love it!
