The Secret War (Jack Blank Adventure)

By Matt Myklusch

544 Pages – Ages 9+

Published August 2011 by Aladdin

Just a short time ago, Jack didn’t know who he was or where he belonged or why he could do things other kids couldn’t. That was before Jack realized he was actually from The Imagine Nation. The Imagine Nation is the place where superheroes live and are trained. Jack has now made his home here and is now an official superhero in training. He is learning how to use his power -he can control machines -even talk to them! Everyone in the Imagine Nation thinks Jack is the biggest celebrity there ever was because he defeated the evil warrior, Revile. Well… almost everyone. There are some in the Imagine Nation that are working hard to find out Jack’s secrets, secrets that may destroy him.

Jack uncovers a plot for a second Rüstov invasion (Rüstovs are aliens that can take over humans and machines and want to control the whole world). He realizes he has to tell his friends about his connection to Revile and hope that they still trust him and help him stop the invasion. If that wasn’t enough trouble, one of the Imagine Nation’s Secreteers (the Secreteers are agents in charge of keeping all of the Imagine Nation’s secrets) got infected with the Rüstov virus and is giving away all of the secrets of The Imagine Nation, including Jack’s! Can Jack and his friends stop the invasion and save The Imagine Nation?

The Secret War starts off a year later from where The Accidental Hero left off. I really liked The Accidental Hero and The Secret War was EVEN BETTER! The Imagine Nation is an amazing place and Mr. Myklusch’s description of it really gives you an idea of what it looks like and what it’s like to live in it. There is a lot that goes on in the plot of the book but it’s easy to follow and the story really keeps you interested. There were cool new characters introduced in this book like Lorem Ipsum and Trea and of course favorite characters from the first book coming back like Skerren and Stendeval. This action-packed book is just fun to read! I can’t wait for the third book!
