This be the second book in the series. While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read the previous book then ye might want to skip this post. If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . . I absolutely loved the first sci-fi tale about a bumbling James Bond type-character code name: Kangaroo and was excited to see what happens in his next set of adventures. I thought this be a solid second book. It takes place on the moon. What was supposed to be a simple mission goes awry and Kangaroo finds himself trying to get his partner cleared of a murder charge, dealing with the aftermath of a terrorist attack, and being trapped on the moon. He isn’t pleased. Shenanigans abound in this tale and I read it in one sitting. I still very much enjoy Kangaroo and his crazy antics. The book was fun and certainly kept me attention. The only downside is that the politics have expanded and taken on a larger role so there was less humor involved in this installment. Minor quibble but the first book entertained me immensely. The silliness of it helped forgive any plot problems. The second book had more easily accesible plot flaws. That said, I wouldn’t mind more adventures of Kangaroo and gang. Arrr!

What a great read, even better than the first! Clear, confident writing taking us along a spy/superhero romp with characters to care about. Also, SCIENCE. The Kangarooverse looks strong and I can't wait for Book #3. And there better be one.... or maybe a prequel, or an Anthology? "Tales from the Pouch" anyone?
