On planet Alania, Alien-Bot wants to make his home world great again by destroying the universe. In the Tiran Galaxy, planet Kidok has vanished after its star went supernova and there have been no signs of survivors because the oppressive Kidokian government employed hackers and spread fake news to fool the public into thinking that the star was healthy and there was no need to evacuate even though it was obvious to most that something was wrong. On Earth, West Plains Mayor Maria Martinez has ignored the pleas of citizens who have fallen on hard times in order to focus her full attention on securing campaign contributions from wealthy donors in order to win her next election.

Welcome to the dark new age that Morgan Wallace (a.k.a. "HyperKid") and Brian Bullini (a.k.a. "BullBorg") suddenly find themselves living in. In this sequel to the highly acclaimed HyperKid v BullBorg, the super heroes, now in fifth grade, are transported through a wormhole that takes them to the Estarna Galaxy, the oldest part of the universe where intelligent life began.
Alien-Bot is there waiting for them, but with the help of some tech upgrades from a thousand-year-old Viking and some unexpected allies, the heroes are able to prove their valor against a tyrant who shows no regard for anyone outside his very limited view of the universe.

The Cyborg at the end of the Universe,
by Emerson Daub & Richard Daub:

 

Children have always flocked to the idea of superheroes, with powers so incredible that they defy the very laws of nature. From Emerson and Richard Daub comes one such tale, a sequel- The Cyborg at the end of the Universe.

Here, we follow the adventures of Morgan Wallace, aka Hyperkid as he plans to save the universe from a maniacal alien cyborg. The book includes a series of colourful illustrations that help to bring the story to life. It uses realistic patterns of speech for its nine year old protagonist, making Hyperkid that much easier for kids to connect with.

Action lurks round every corner. I like that the plot moves swiftly along and found that it held my attention well.

The main message of the story revolves around the perspectives of yourself and others. To quote, ‘You must understand someone’s situation before branding them a good, or a bad guy.’ This is wonderful advice for young people and supports the idea that we should all get to know someone before making any snap judgements. A secondary message that sprang to mind while writing this review is to, ‘Just be yourself- if you can accept who you are- you’ll be fine.’

I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of sci-fi, fantasy, and superheroes. I think it would also make an ideal read for young kids diagnosed with ADD/ADHD as it shows hyperactivity in a positive light, branding it as part of a superhuman set of abilities.

My rating: 5 stars.
