This book, and series, is amazing!
Olympic_Writer
With an unpredictable plot, incredible world-building and sympathetic, three dimensional characters, there's really nothing more you can ask for in a YA novel.
The Mad Reviewer
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.

From - This Kid Reviews Books! find me on the web!!

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 uncover 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.

Format: Hardcover
Picking right up where Jack Blank left off, Jack finds himself in a new adventure that will teach him an important lesson about hope, honesty, endless possibilities, and the courage to take hold of his future. With the growing threat of the Rustov attacking, and his secret being leaked, Jack crosses the line with secret keeping into lying, not only to himself, but to his friends. In this fantastic action filled sequel to The Accidental Hero, Jack Blank once again proves why he's earned the title hero.

I loved the first book in this series (you can read my 5 star review here) and I've been anxiously awaiting to find out what was in store for Jack next. One of the things I love about this series is the way in which Matt has created a realistic, relatable hero in Jack for younger readers. Even heros make mistakes, fall from grace and learn their lessons, which Jack does. Jack Blank has a secret that ties him to the Rustov, only this time his secret isn't just a threat to him, it's a threat to everyone around him and their future. Not to mention Jonas Smart still despises him and will do anything he can to remind the people that Jack has ties to the Rustov. For these reasons alone, I completely understood why he was afraid to tell anyone about it. As the plot twists continue and the war is getting closer, Jack learns the importance of honesty, trusting in those closest to you, and believing in himself.

One of the characters I love in the series is Stendeval. What Yoda is to Luke in Star Wars, Stendeval is to Jack. He's full of wisdom and advice, often says things that readers can also take away from the story like:

"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
