This sequel to Waypoint Kangaroo gives equal thrills in a closer, more character-focused story.
Kangaroo has gained confidence since the events of book 1, but he still wields his trademark quips and a certain, youthful insecurity. He knows the world around him has become if anything more dangerous since his mission on the cruise-spaceship to Mars, as one of the biggest threats from that book is still wreaking havoc with insider knowledge about the agency.
Kangaroo Too send Kangaroo and his long-suffering doctor, Jessica "Surge" Chu, are sent to the moon to meet a mysterious contact who might have clues about robots going rogue. Along the way, Kangaroo will have to negotiate what it means to trust when you work for an agency that is all about secrets, and to team up with people he wants to hate.
The conflicts and fight scenes are dynamic, and the situations complex yet utterly believable within Kangaroo's world. Curtis Chen's deft writing continues to convey humor and tension on every page.
The voice performance is good and clear--great for Kangaroo's voice--and has good differentiation for the other characters, though his "female" voices are a little similar to one another and a bit grating. Still, a very fun listen overall.
