Overview

The stunning follow-up to Ack-Ac-Macaque, which featured the Spitfire pilot monkey hero of a computer game who turned out to be real. The first book was met with wide acclaim upon release.

In order to hide from his unwanted fame as the spitfire-pliot-monkey who emerged from a computer game to defeat the dangerous corporation who engineered him, the charismatic and dangerous Ack-Ack Macaque is working as a pilot on a world-circling nuclear powered Zeppelin. But when the cabin of one of his passengers is invaded by the passenger's own dying doppelganger, our hirsute hero finds himself thrust into another race to save the world - this time from an aggressive hive mind, time-hopping saboteurs, and an army of homicidal Neanderthal assassins!

    Parallel Worlds, Apocalyptic invasions, and mysteries of earth

    Parallel Worlds, Apocalyptic invasions, and mysteries of earth shattering proportions are all in a day’s work for Ack-Ac-Macaque and his friends. Unfortunately, this book is light on depth and heavy on action. Very often it seemed like the author assumed you hadn’t read the first book and were not exactly reading every word of this one either. Very often, I found information repeated in multiple places, multiple times. I was reminded constantly where Ack-Ac-Macaque came from and that the previous ship captain was dead. Also, the new character they introduced, William Cole had his own perspective chapters which did nothing for me whatsoever. His relevance to the story, especially by the end, had gone completely. The whole premise was such a bad side story that any attempt it was supposed to make to pull at the reader’s heart strings had long since devolved into an awkward, so what? It fascinated me that the author felt it necessary to keep coming up with William’s perspective when Victoria’s perspective alone seemed tiresome. The book wasn’t bad, it had some good action and good one liners from Ack-Ac-Macaque. But on the whole it was not as exciting as it should have been and everything seemed to work out somewhat predictably near the end. This is the kind of thing where you go big or go home. The author should have just gone home.
