Read full description of the books:
World domination through breakfast cereal additives is fairly implausible. But that is practically the most believable aspect of this silly, though occasionally endearing, second book in a promised trilogy. The first book cast corporate America and the Masons as the villains. Here we find that they were mere puppets to the more nefarious plot hatched by an evil fairy queen. And quite a plot it is. This being a sequel, Rex wastes no time reintroducing the characters or redefining the conflict. The first pages open with an action sequence that propels the reader directly into another action sequence with entirely different characters in a different setting. Things happen constantly in this book with only a loose attempt to explain motives.
The cast of characters is large and often indistinct. It is easy to confuse the kids, though the leprechaun and shaved Sasquatch tend to stand out. As various quests branch out from the central storyline, the plot line becomes increasingly muddled. The conclusion is entirely inconclusive, simply leading us to the place where the third book in the trilogy will begin.
Adam Rex is a master of the ridiculous, layering clever wordplay, plot twists, fantastical elements, absurd situations, preposterous characters, and puns in a farce that is overly stuffed and lacking in heart or a cohesive plot. Readers who prefer humor above all else find this book fun and charming.

Read information about the authorAdam Rex grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, the middle of three children. He was neither the smart one (older brother) or the cute one (younger sister), but he was the one who could draw. He took a lot of art classes as a kid, trying to learn to draw better, and started painting when he was 11. And later in life he was drawn down to Tucson in order to hone his skills, get a BFA from the University of Arizona, and meet his physicist wife Marie (who is both the smart and cute one).
Adam is nearsighted, bad at all sports, learning to play the theremin, and usually in need of a shave. He can carry a tune, if you don't mind the tune getting dropped and stepped on occasionally. He never remembers anyone's name until he's heard it at least three times. He likes animals, spacemen, Mexican food, Ethiopian food, monsters, puppets, comic books, 19th century art, skeletons, bugs, and robots.
Garlic and crosses are useless against Adam. Sunlight has been shown to be at least moderately effective. A silver bullet does the trick. Pretty much any bullet, really.
