Publisher's Summary

Despite having their secret revealed, the residents of Melbrook Hall return to Lander University for another year in the Hero Certification Program. Good thing the focus of this year is teamwork, because with their origins known, they'll have to lean on each other more than ever.

Now finally sophomores, their curriculum expands, allowing them to train in the majors that Heroes specialize in. The new classes will test their minds, bodies, and determination in ways never anticipated. In a year filled with the unveiling of secrets, unexpected entanglements, and, of course, super-powered battles, who will be left standing is anyone's guess. Because if all that weren't enough, more light is being shed on last year's kidnapping attempt, and the results point at something far bigger than mere rogue educators.

Something that isn't even close to being over with.

    "It's ok."

    I'm not sure who the story is meant for. It moves like a young teen story, it has lots of exposition like a young teen story but it has language and some content that absolutely isn't young teen. Despite these failings, but because of the clear world-view and pace of storytelling the book and its predecessor have found a place in my library. They are not challenging at all but are entertaining enough to listen through to the end with no regrets about the purchase.

    "awesome characters and all the little details"

    The characters aren't perfect, they have flaws. But they come to life with such detail.
    The narrator adds a consistent and emotional support to the character allowing the listener to forget it is not a dramatisation.

    But I'll give it a 5 rarely give a 5 and never before its finished... Usually avoid superhero books cos it's not science and it's blatant made up crap... But.. Well I love the previous book and I love this one... Still 10 hours to go to the end and I'm buying the next one and writing this review

    "just pure fun,but that's never been a bad thing."
    What did you like best about this story?

    my favourite part of the book and the series as a whole is the interactions between the characters. From the Melbrook students to dean Blaine and professor Pendleton, all the interaction's are either funny or help flesh out the characters.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    more often than not the book made me laugh which helped me to certainly relate to the characters involved


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to this book twice in a month considering the length and that i also have listened to other books aswell as actually READING the next two books in the series, that should say a lot about my opinions sbout my opinion on this book

    "Super Good Sequel "

    While the first book in the series failed a bit in the writing this picks up and continuing expanding the excellent plot and engaging gallery of protagonists.
    I'm not a big fan of "Superheroes" in general, I'm however a great fan of "realistic" superpowered heroes, like the X-men movies (not the comics) and similar. This series really scratch that itch and some. I really look forward to dive into the next one!

    "great second story"

    we continue to see our characters grow in unexpected ways. and new developments in their life outside of Lander affects their whole year. Kyle McCarley does a wonderful job reading and acting out every single character with their own distinct voices and personalities coming through amazingly.

    Story
    "Just About"
    What did you love best about Super Powereds: Year 2?

    It builds a world, and populates it with some cool characters. And I'm not just talking about the main six Melbrook characters, but the 2nd and 3rd tier ones as well, both faculty and students. The story moved along, and I was invariably eager to get to the next part, however haphazardly I was listening to it (usually on the walk or bike ride to work). Looking forward to the next one.


    What other book might you compare Super Powereds: Year 2 to and why?

    It's a college Harry Potter, though using X-Men style powers. That's a good thing if properly executed, and by and large this is.


    What does Kyle McCarley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kyle really does the different voices well. With the main six characters I can instantly tell who it is, even if the text doesn't immediately tell us. He's a fantastic reader, and is a huge impetus for me to experience the next book in audio form, rather than on paper or Kindle.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long to listen to in one sitting, it probably took me a month or a bit less, there were very few days I skipped.


    Any additional comments?

    I knocked this story down a star because of the trainwreck that is Vince Reynolds. A naive, meek coward, afraid to hurt a fly. I hope to God that Book 3, which I've already downloaded, does something interesting with him, and that the events of this book change him, or at least make him evolve. He sucked.

    Also, making Alice Adair hot made for some interesting visuals (I pictured Evanna Lynch ironically), but given that not one sober guy in two books has hit on her......well......just seems out of place.

    "Holy crap that was good!"

    I really enjoyed year 1 and was anxiously awaiting year 2, but I would never have anticipated how beyond satisfying it would be.

    I rarely have time to sit down and read but am seriously considering reading year 3 instead of waiting a month. For the moment, my soul is happy and satiated. For the moment...

    Story
    "Perfect addition to the series."

    The author is a bit heavy handed with the "he replied" and "she said" which can make parts of a group conversation a bit of marathon. I respect unabridged is as described but when the narrator goes into easy to follow characters it's tedious. I still absolutely loved it. I also really value that its not the typical 10.5 hour audiobook so you can really get into the story.
    Fight scenes can drag a bit at times but thats more of a personal opinion. I am also frustrated with the ongoing cliffhangers that were started in Book 1 with the fantasy answers were coming in Book 2. Then again that's what will likely keep me interested.
    I accidentally started with Corpies which lead me to year 1. By the end I was searching for year 2 weeks before it's release. I can't wait until 3 arrives.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I like these stories, but this book had issues at chapter 168, it started with noise and couldn't go further. therefore all that was heard was static.

    Story
    "A bit more perceptive than the usual spoof"

    If you take out the slightly annoying "...so-and-so said." that becomes redundant when the conversation is acted out, the story is quite engaging. The characters are believable, and the author exposes the different levels of understanding a given situation might have. I really found myself empathizing with the characters despite the sappy descriptions by the narrator. I was surprised at the depth of detail provided while keeping the story moving quickly. The story is very character driven and the protagonists experience an appreciable amount of change. The narrator has a good range of convincing voices and personalities. Totally recommended series.
