Booklist - 03/01/2018 Immediately following Beetle Boy (2016), young Darkus, his beloved companion Baxter—an intelligent rhinoceros beetle—and other friends both two- and six-legged square off in a rematch with megalomaniac bug breeder and fashion designer Lucretia Cutter. Having already partly transformed herself into an oversize beetle and with an army of “transgenic” insect minions at her command, Lucretia decides that the time has come to deliver an ultimatum to the world: pausing only to decimate the community of experimental smart beetles rescued from her labs in the previous episode, off she flies to make her announcement before millions of viewers at a Hollywood awards show. Darkus gathers the few survivors and pursues, setting the stage for an authentically buggy climactic fracas. Familiarity with the opener is essential to understanding what’s going on in this middle volume. Still, with a cast of thousands, villains both scary and comically bumbling, and rising stakes, the tale scuttles along briskly—leaving clear sign of a rousing finale to come. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
