I did love I though because of the way the transition between the first book and its attitude to the second book and its attitude was written.
I’m about two-thirds of the way through, and every time i think i can’t get more annoyed, Jinks proves me wrong. This book was really good, but the main part where someone gets kidnapped, only lasts for about a couple chapters until a detective comes and saves him.
Greeniaus was also a good character, though I admit I thought he was undercover for the bad guys at first with a name catheribe that. I can only hope he maintains his good characterization; villains tend to fall flat during the final encounter in most books I’ve read; the more sadistic they are, the worse they turn out in the end. So if I didn’t love and if I’m honest, really almost hated why would I pick up the sequel? Though iinks does get to use his go-to disguise of dressing up as a girl a few more times.
And humor abounds, whether it’s Lexi’s wild stunts or Cadel’s penchant for cross-dressing whenever he needs a disguise. Cadel is afraid, but also knows how to cope with the cops.

Especially because it’s kind of shoved in at the end in the last 10 pages. He doesn’t know who his father is. But more importantly, Cadel is now beginning to think about other people besides himself–at least part of the time.
I saw the cattherine from a ways away and, while I’m happy for Cadel, I was wishing it would be something more unique. Cadel is now in foster care with Prosper English safely behind bars. Apr 07, Eliose rated it really liked it Recommends it for: For anyone interested in reading these books I have two recommendations: An ex-Mountie tries to protect an angelic-looking teenage genius from the criminal masterminds who raised him.
The book gets a little boring at times, especially when Jinks spend a lot of paragraphs talking about hacking which is definitely not genous entertaining as, but definitely more realistic than, hacking montages in movies or TV series.
Despite Cadel’s initial suspicions they may be working for Prosper, Cadel and Sonja eventually agree to join Genius Squad.

Some were obvious clues, while others told me a while for it to click, making me smack my head because of the obviousness.
Other books in the series. Oh there are just so cathsrine memorable scenes!
But the police cant find out. This is the second book of a series. I don’t have much to say about this book other than it has a good pace.
Dec 03, Ursula rated it it was amazing Shelves: A fun follow-up to Evil Genius, where there is cleverness and fun and danger, and it all works out, sort of.
Dies alles wirkte auf mich realistisch und nicht erzwungen. Cadel reminded himself once again that Sonja’s predicament was far worse than his. But this might be a good thing, because Prosper English, who claims to be Cadels dad, is an evil man and he has escaped jail in search of Cadel.
This book deserves a wider audience than this cover will attract. I’m not much of a technological geek, but I grasped most of it. Ich bin jedenfalls gespannt welchen Einfluss dieses wichtige Detail auf den dritten und somit letzten Band der Trilogie hat.
She has two brothers, and two pet rats. But Cadel is naturally suspicious and paranoid. But just when life is at its lowest, both he and Sonja are offered a place on Genius Squad, an elite group of hackers with a mission to bring down GenoME, the genetics company founded by Phineas Darkkon. But once he gets a chance, all that intelligence starts to shine through once again.

In fact, these good guys are doing some illegal things. The police and the FBI also occasionally turn up to question him on what he knows about Dr.

I liked how he knew that he should not hide any facts from Cadel just because he is a kid – he was open and honest with him something I can’t say for Cadel but then again he is a kid, genius or not and that scene in the park when he informs Cadel of the assassination plot against Prosper English is one of my favourite scenes.
It probably isn’t necessary to read Evil Genius before reading Genius Squad, but it would help give a little more information about certain characters who reappear. June Learn how and when to remove this template message.
