Summary

Twelve super powered schools. Three devastating events. Only one winner. 

The World's Finest tournament is coming, and with it comes the chance to truly show the world what you're made of. 

There's just one problem: for Nick and the rest of Valcav Academy to win, they'll not only have to work together but defeat a new challenger unlike any they have ever seen. 

And worse? 

Lord Inferno has entered his own team, and he's more determined than ever to bring Nick over to his side, even if he has to kill everyone at Valcav to do it. 

Warning: This book contains awesome.

A fantastic follow up!

Though I could do with out the gratuitous sex scenes, I have really enjoyed this sequel. The battles are fluid and move swiftly. The characters are well developed and the plot moves swiftly.

Better than I expected & a slight rise in maturity

Ok, 1st off, the story the characters and the world are gradually gaining depth. I would still like more backstory & character development rather than the obligatory sex scenes, but realistically I know that is what the market seems to want. Independent authors have even less freedom than the days of traditional publishing and the strict genre standards and unfortunately ludicrous sex is still sex and sex will always sell. That being the case, it is actually more impressive the way this author still uses it as a necessary plot device, but keeps the graphic crap a bit distant from the overall storyline. Yes this is still targeting the YA Male audience & it really doesn't matter, I was worried more about the MC growing up and to a certain extent I still am, but it seems to be what the author intended.
That was a very long way to say I enjoyed this book and the performance as well as a solid follow up from the first and I have already purchased the next book in this series. Which is all that really matters...

It would make a great anime/hentai

Honestly, this would make a great anime/hentai in my opinion. The depth of the entire story is meh but it does have good characters, interesting powers, and you don't just hate everyone or everything.

It is a decent read and though I feel like it lacks depth it is still a very entertaining read.

cut the sex scenes

I liked it minus the sex scenes they seem out of place and cringey but other than that
