    First and foremost, before I begin this review, it must be noted

    First and foremost, before I begin this review, it must be noted that I have not played any of Spirit of the Century, the role playing game this universe is based out of. I also have not read any of the Dinopocalypse trilogy that this book continues from. I just finished reading "Khan of Mars" a week ago and was told this book was out,so I had to pick it up right away!

    King Khan opens right after the end of Khan of Mars. Professor Khan is now back on Earth, regretting not staying behind with the Queen of the Inkindu. While at one of his student's parents' home, an arrow randomly appears out of nowhere and hits the chair between Khan's legs. A note attached warns that trouble is brewing in New York, so Bertie(the student) and Khan rush to New York to try and save a colleagues life. The adventure brings them to Hollywood where they discover a powerful device called the Improbability Bow has been stolen and they must recover it or the madman who took it will destroy the world.

    As per the previous book, everything is over the top and wonderful here. The characters are handled just as well as they were in Khan of Mars(written by a different author). The same attention of detail is given to all the side characters, so much to the point that you could write a novel about any of those characters and you'd be interested to follow their adventures. The only complaint I have in the character department this time around is that Khan seems so much different here than he did in Mars. On Mars, he was constantly struggling with the inner beast, which lead to some interesting monologues. Back on Earth, he is 100% in control of it and is the intelligent and calm professor most of the time. I know the War of Mars would change him, but I didn't think it would throw away the beast completely.

    The action again continues to be great. There are 2 complaints though I have about the pacing. This book is 258 pages long, and flies by really quickly once it gets going, but the book is really slow at first.Also, it has way to many chapters for such a small book. Some chapters are literally 2 paragraphs long and then the next chapter starts. What bugged me most about this was the fact that 5 chapters were the equivalent of one normal chapter and all 5 of them took place in the same place through the same characters eyes. But, as I stated, once this book took off it was action packed and great just like Khan of Mars. The plot twist at the end who the villain turns out to be is great. I also laughed hysterically at the reveal,as it is a real person in real life that I've always had my suspicions about(just read the book!).

    Overall, I was really happy with this book. I wish it would have been action packed out of the gate like Khan of Mars was, but once the book picks up it never stops. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who read the first one and enjoyed it. Hope they make another in the Khan series!
