The Lad Who Poked the Devil in the Eye happens twelve years after Stranded. More aliens come to Earth but these aren't the nice kind. They come here to annihilate Earthlings and steal our resources. The book starts as we make acquaintance with the new President of the United States and like in the first book, let's just say he is not portrayed on his best side. Also like in the first book, a teenager finds a stranded alien who gives him something unexpected. But the beginning of the story is a bit confusing, starting with a 'football game' with the Chicago Cubs (?). Ok, it was just a slip from the author, but this along with the 'ten days earlier' chapter got me a little confused. I felt as if Mr. Berg didn't really know how to start the book but he recovered well and offered an interesting story after that.
Otis, the main character, is a young man who tends to speak to himself, which makes people sometimes believe he has mental issues. However, the author uses this trait cleverly to help tell the stories with spoken dialogues (instead of internal ones). Otis, with his flaws, is a relatable character. His story is not always completely believable but we have to remember that we're dealing with aliens here so who knows what they could really do after all.
For those who liked the first book, you'll be happy to know that some of the characters from the first book are back in this one. I won't say which ones as to not spoil the first book to people who may not have read it yet. And although both stories are complete by themselves, I would greatly advise to read Stranded first.
Overall, it was an enjoyable story although I must admit I preferred Stranded. If you like story about Earth being under attack by aliens, you should give this series a try.
