If you read the first Priscilla the Great, then you know what to expect: a fun, middle-school take on a standard superhero trope (heroine has superpowers, is in hiding from evil institution which wants to control her for their own evil schemes, and needs to juggle secret identity with regular life). I liked it almost as much as the first in the series, but a cliffhanger ending and repeated campiness make it slightly less successful for me.

Plot Premise
This story takes place a couple months after the end of the first book. Priscilla has a lot going on. She's in a bit of a love triangle, her mom has lost her powers and is acting strangely, and she's adjusting to her new life in hiding. On top of that, she's taken over running the missions that her mom used to run and is trying to stay one step ahead of Colonel Selliwood and his evil compatriots.

The writing is first-person and chatty and works well when dealing with her interactions with people in her life. Her relationships with her brothers, friends, and parents are funny and heartwarming and believable, even when she's using her invisible jet and super powers to play pranks or get even with her little brothers.

Where the story stumbles a bit for me is the villains. I expect to need to suspend disbelief in this sort of story, but I found that the villains were so one-dimensional and their aims and methods were so pointlessly evil, that it seemed a little flat compared to the more complex characters in the good side.

I'm writing this on behalf of my eleven-year-old daughter, who just finished Kiss of Life last night. I've never heard her laugh so hard and so often as she did during these two books. It got to the point where other people in the house started growling at her and she would run out of the room to laugh or stuff a pillow over her face. Her only gripe is that the book seemed to end on something of a cliffhanger and she was frustrated that book #3 is not yet available.

They're ba-a-a-ck! Priscilla and her family and friends continue their mysterious, super power ways.

When the president's daughter is kidnapped, Priscilla and the crew hop on board to rescue her, as well as protect the secrets they've kept hidden about their abilities. New problems, new (fabulous) characters, and new feelings arise in this sequel.

I feel sequels are usually a slight let down, but The Kiss of Life is as strong (if not stronger) than the first installment. The characters come to life, and the adventures keep you turning the page. A quick and fun read that will stay with you after you finish the last page...which, by the way, is another cliff hanger!

I LOVE Priscilla and her fabulous adventures. The ONLY reason I rated this four out of five stars is because it ends in a cliff hanger. I do look forward to reading the next installment though.

I know this book is geared to teens but Priscilla is a lovable witty character that older people (ie a young mom such as myself) can appreciate. What stands out the most for me are the often humorous sibling dynamics; my husband had to ask several times why I was laughing so much. The transitions from scene to scene flowed well (just just finished a book that didn't and man did I ever appreciate this).

Only one small thing annoyed me. Since the first book hooked me, all the details were still fresh in my mind. The constant recaps slowed down my reading a smidgen and made me roll my eyes while thinking... I know I know, what's next? I think a lot more new content could have been added to change things up a little and like someone else already stated more time should have been spent on the villains. Hopefully the next book will have a little less recap. Annoyance aside, I still love this series.

Priscilla comes from a family with a variety of superpowers. Priss can run really fast, she has super hearing, and she can shoot fire out of her fingers. HOT! Her brother, Josh, is a telepathic. Oh, and her little twin brothers, Chester and Charlie, haven't gotten their powers yet, but they are a handful.

The main plot has to do with the ever present threat of the evil Selliwood Institute eliminating Priss' family. It's the subplots that really grabbed me though. Priss finds herself right in the middle of a crush triangle with Kyle and Marco. Kyle is her longtime friend who is not aware of her powers. Marco is the cute French mutant who she has an instant connection with. What's a girl to do?

I was also drawn into the subplot involving Priss' parents. Her dad is still in over-protective over-drive, but it just shows how much he cards. Her mom's emotions range from snappy to happy at the snap of finger. It just goes to show that everyone deals with adversity differently.

The Kiss of Life is a light story with great characters and a twisty plot. There is a good deal of character development in such a short story, and I loved all the girl power that Priss exudes. Middle grade girls will really enjoy it.

This is a cover that shows off the main character very well. There is fire for Priss' power, a heart for her crushes, and a pink kiss to remind us of girl power. Nicely done and it is a good match for the first book's cover.
