Kensei 1 was about dealing with an adult world as a teen. Kensei 2 is about that world crashing down around your ears while you're still trying to live as a teen. Absolutely enjoyable read, with excellent details.
This second novel hits those same notes but the tone is even sweeter. I see the big young-adult franchises in the movie theaters and wish upon a star that they were replaced by Kensei.
In The Love Of Danger we get robot attacks. Also, there's a vigilante cheerleader squad led by a sexually-confused cheer captain who gets her powers from the spirt of Joan of Arc. Meanwhile, Kensei's girlfriend's deadbeat dad shows up with millions of dollars to spoil his estranged daughter, but he may or may not be inhabited by the ghost of a Italian supervillain recently rescued from hell by a Norse god.
Honestly, if this series gets wrapped up in a trilogy then the final book's gonna be a long one. Jeremy Zimmerman has introduced so many subplots and interesting secondary characters that there could be several more Kensei books to come. And that would be just fine with me.
The Kickstarted sequel, The Love of Danger, continues the adventures of Jamie Hattori. And now we've got undead, fascist villains and their robots, plenty of relationship (family, professional, and romance) drama, and Jamie's new set of skills.
I love the backdrop, with Jamie working in a world already populated by well-known Cobalt City superheroes. Her experience is a bit like being a minor superhero in The Incredibles, but with less family togetherness and more getting smacked around by her racist grandfather. The shared world Zimmerman accesses gives him some interesting characters and events pre-fabricated, a history of conflicts and resolutions, of biases and trust issues that already populate the landscape. We also learn a great deal more about the conflicts and motivations of some of the awesome characters from the first go-round.
The first book gripped me more than the second, but The Love of Danger is an excellent follow-up and I am looking forward to where the series goes next.
