Making a name for myself as a Villain in Panopolis is hard work. Six months ago, my boyfriend broke me out of jail. Now he's spending most of his time defending our turf against other Villains he accidentally freed along with me. And my new psychic powers are not only impossible to control, but they're also giving me migraines.
But it's not all doom and gloom. My skills are improving every day, and Raul - aka the Mad Bombardier - and I have never been happier. That is, until my first solo job is interrupted by a mysterious woman who tells me that Raul has been kidnapped by a ruthless new Villain. The only way to free him is to do a job for Maggot, a man with scary ideas and an even scarier superpower.
I can't go to the cops or a Hero for help. Odds are they wouldn't listen to me anyway. If I fail, Raul will be killed. If I succeed, we'll both be bound to a man who'll stop at nothing to put Panopolis on the path to civil war. It looks like the only way to win is to take out the competition.

... someone is bound to get burned
Edward's continual growth as a person, coming to terms with his new found ability.
Edward exacting his revenge on the villain that hurt Raul.
When Edward broke into GenCorp.
Where there's fire.... someone is bound to get burned.
After listening to the first book, I had to dive right into this one. The story picks up several months after the events in Where there's smoke and Edward is adjusting to life as a villain, life with Raul. Everything is going as well as can be expected until one of the villains Inadvertently freed from Prison when Raul broke Edward out decides he wants to control the villains. And he wants Edward under his thumb. Now, exactly how do you think this demon will achieve that? If you're thinking kidnapping and torturing his lover, you'd be right.
Loved the storyline for the most part and absolutely enjoyed the narration. I really liked how Russo made the bad guy sound as disgusting as his moniker.... Maggot. And here's where we get to what I didn't enjoy so much. This villains "gift" is disgusting and I almost threw up in lunch. So be warned, there are a couple of 10-15 minute sections where you won't want to be eating or just eaten. Gross!
Aside from that, I really enjoyed the story.
