Publisher's Summary

After surviving employee orientation without destroying the city with her new powers, Dani is finally a bonafide Cleaner. Raring to get to work and save the world from corruption, she's given the critical assignment of...full-time tools training. After all, what good are magic mops or squeegees if she doesn't know how to properly wield them against scum? For now, she's stuck in sparring matches where her pride is getting as bruised as her body.
Ben, her janitor friend and mentor, is also struggling with being sidelined as a "consultant" after the loss of his powers. His only consolation is having gained information that could help solve the mystery of his wife's death on a sewer run gone horribly wrong - the same event that temporarily trashed his sanity.
But when a maid goes berserk during a training session and tries to slaughter everyone with a feather duster, something is clearly afoul within the ranks of the Cleaners themselves.
Company procedure brooks no compromise: Identify and quarantine the source of the corruption at all costs. But who cleans the Cleaners? Especially when further enraged outbreaks seem to occur at random?
As bodies begin to create quite the messy heap, it's only a matter of time before the whole company is consumed by the madness - taking Dani and Ben down the drain with it.

Great second book!

I thoroughly enjoyed book 1 of this and couldn't wait to listen to this one! In this edition, Dani's training has really taken off and she is learning how to use the tools of the trade. With Ben being deemed out of action, she is teamed with new people and thrown into the deep end when suddenly Maids start attacking everyone! The whole Cleaners compound is in trouble and will be put in stasis if Dani and co can't find out who is behind this!!

Once again, we have an action packed read. We are brought into the action from the get go and it doesn't let up once throughout! The gang are thrown into perilous situation after perilous situation yet don't give up. This one is also quite darker than book 1!! We see some icky things but the villain and what he does is pretty dark!

Character wise, Dani is as kick ass and germophobic as ever. She still struggles with her fear of germs but doesn't let it get in her way either. Poor Ben is relegated down the chain and struggles with his own problems. He is trying to deal with losing his powers but also getting answers about what happened with his wife. We also have some new folk thrown into the mix! The twins are awesome!! Loved their interactions with themselves and others.

In all, this was another great edition in The Cleaners universe. Dark, action packed and engaging, this is a must read! I have become invested in these characters and can't wait to see where their journey takes them!

Michael Gilboe does a great job with the narration again. He is easy to listen to and distinguishes his voices perfectly so it's easy to hear who is talking.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

More Janitor Fun

Slightly more serious than Enter the Janitors, but still a mystery with a sense of humor. In this second book, we get to see more of Dani and Ben...and even Jarrod, the demi god. We now know that there is definitely something very special about Ben (not just Dani) and that he still has a purpose in the Cleaners but we don't find out very much about what it is and he does not make very much progress on his beloved wife's death.

We do get to meet a few new characters (literally) who help along the way. I especially like the twins and Lucy. The opponent was a formidable one and promised, in the end, that there is more cleaning to be done before Purity is safe!

I am looking forward to the next installment in this series and, hopefully, there will be more in it to explain Dani, Ben, and Jarrod and Ben will finally get some answers about what happened to him and his wife.

I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
