Series: Kyle Evans #2
Publisher: Rob Hunt
Publication Date: November 7, 2016
After narrowly escaping from an alien zoo, Kyle is looking forward to a normal life once again. Unfortunately for him and his best friend Sofia, his troubles have only just begun. A blue dot that suddenly appears on his elbow signals the beginning of another crazy adventure featuring hungry Gomes, sneaky Pliskins, the mysterious Azda Fains and, of course, the cat who is not a cat – Bootles. Kyle Evans and the Deadly Plague is the second installment in the exciting Kyle Evans trilogy.
Kyle and Sofia have contracted a deadly plague and Bootles, the alien in cat form, has to travel in space to cure them. That isn't easy with the evil Commander still after him...
Rob Hunt does not disappoint with book two in the Kyle Evans series. The book is simply put 'out of this world' (pun intended) with crazy creatures, action and adventure. Younger readers will love this series, it is full of space, monsters, battles, and dangerous feats. It is also pretty short, with short chapters at about 140/50 pages, it is a quick and easy read for all ages.
You can't help but have a fondness for the crazy cat who always has a plan but also sometimes just goes for it- even if that means possible death. The humn characters are fun too, but mostly because other than their alien cat, they are pretty normal kids. I think they are relatable and they handle their situations very well.
Hunt has a wonderful imagination and it shows in these books, the monsters and creatures sound insane but they fit. The planets and worlds he builds are just as enjoyable. Overall I think this is a wonderfully imaginative and creative sci-fi that anyone will enjoy.
