When Mystic kidnaps Oceanus, Jeff learns it isn't all right. Turning to the newly balanced supers for assistance, he panics to find they've done nothing to rescue Oceanus. When no ransom request follows, he worries Mystic's plan never included returning his girlfriend. Frustrated, he's forced to work with the only super willing to help. Oceanus' ex-villain, ex-boyfriend, Set.
Mystic isn't the only one hiding something. Nothing about Jeff is balanced. Temper flares result in scorched clothing or flying furniture, and his charm has become an indiscriminating people-magnet.
Jeff is convinced, or maybe just hopeful, that his lack of control is directly related to Oceanus being gone. But will he and Set find her before Jeff loses control completely and will they find her alive?

What would happen if super powers were equalized? That's the question facing Jeff Mean, er, I mean, Polar in this sequel to King of Bad. After balancing the supers at the end of book one, things should be good now. But they aren't. The villains aren't being villainous, but the heroes aren't being heroic, either. Everyone's powers are balanced. Except Jeff's. That wouldn't be such a bad thing if his girlfriend, Oci, was around. But she's been kidnapped, and neither side of the supers are helping Jeff find her. His last resort is to team up with Set, his nemesis from his old school. Together, they manage to track down Oci, but Jeff learns things aren't as they seem. Will this be what pushes his growing powers over the edge? While not a huge fan of cliffhanger endings, this one has me waiting, not so patiently, for the next installment. *I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.*
What if your mom was a hero and your dad a villain? What if you were both, with a good side but unable to tame your villain side? Then you and your girlfriend bring the world to an end and in the new world the super villains and heroes are balanced, neither good nor bad. Or they’re supposed to be. And no, I’m not telling how they bring the world to an end. In POLAR OPPOSITES: SUPER VILLAIN ACADEMY BOOK 2, by Author Kai Strand, Jeff, AKA Polar, still has trouble controlling his good or bad sides, even though he’s supposed to be balanced. Not only is Jeff having problems with his powers and has to watch to keep from setting people on fire, his girlfriend Oceanus is acting weird also. Then Oceanus is kidnapped and Jeff, like it or not, finds himself working with Set, Oceanus’ ex- boyfriend, to find where her abductor has taken Oceanus. Kai Strand keeps the action moving. She takes the reader down one road and you think you know where you’re going. Then the road takes an unexpected turn and you’re headed in a new direction. The author also has created characters that, even though they have super powers, are still teens with the emotions of teens searching for their identity and where they fit in the world. Vivid descriptions place the reader in each scene, as if you’re there. This is a story of young love, hope, fear, and trust. I recommend POLAR OPPOSITES for lovers of fantasy, super heroes, and adventure. The novel would make a nice addition to high school libraries and your own library as well. I hope we don’t have to wait too long to see what happens to Jeff and his friends next. Happy Reading. ###
