This book is awesome! I never thought about going in the teen section before, then I went and found this book and borrowed it because I thought it would be a good book. As it turns out, it is! Read all the books people!

I LOVE the new character Saul Greeniaus! I hope he plays just as big a part in Genius War as much as he is in this book.

Even better than the last one. I love how characters with the same talents as Cadel are introduced.

The second book in the trilogy starting with _Evil Genius_ is a little more jumbled and a little less intensely engaging than the first, but it's still very enjoyable, and the character development continues interesting and plausible. This novel is a shade less cartoon-like, being a touch more realistic and nuanced, but it's still larger than life without losing the reader. It manages to be funny, touching, and genuinely scary, and that's a rare achievement for any novelist. These books are a prime example of YA fiction that's just as enjoyable for an adult reader as a younger one.

This is an amazing book! It;s predecessor, Evil Genius, captured my attention so much that I absolutely rushed to get this the moment it was available in the library! This book blew me away from the very first page, and I couldn't put it down until I finished it! I'm waiting impatiently for the third book to come to the libraries because I can't wait to see what happens to dear Cadell next!
