The Cloak Society #2: Villains Rising by Jeramey Kraatz

Villains Rising (The Cloak Society, #2)Don't read any further if you haven't read the first book in the series! Alex, Mallory, Gage, and Misty are now teamed up with the surviving Junior Rangers, Kirbie, Kyle, and Amp. A stranger appears at their hideout, and he has the ability to communicate with insects. Alex doesn't trust Bug, but he is only one who seems to have a conflict with Bug. They make plans to rescue the Rangers trapped in the Gloom, but it won't be easy. They target Cloak's Omegas, their special ops assassins, and their aided by a girl with her own powers. Alex wants to let her join the group, but the others are a little suspicious. He starts to question his sanity after seeing his mother appear, and then disappear, in an alley. Cloak is making moves to discredit the Junior Rangers and take over the city. Is there any way to stop them?

You must read the first book before this one. The plot includes fight scenes between the good and evil characters, but the author adds a twist to the conflict. Cloak uses the media to turn the Rangers into the bad guys and make themselves the heroes. Adding new characters creates more mystery, since readers aren't sure which ones are secretly bad. Alex's mother is able to control people's minds, and other characters are able to hide their appearances. I'm enjoying the series and am looking forward to the next book.
