In this sequel to Sven Carter and the Trashmouth Effect, Sven Carter is on the road trying to track down clues to other ticks like himself, destined to take down the world.  Sven is a tick, a synthetic human and one of seven deadly ticks loose in North America.  Sven and his friends, Alicia, William, and Junkman Sam, set off to locate the other ticks before it’s too late.  As Sven gets closer to his goal, the voice in his head telling him to kill his friends gets louder and more convincing.  

If you are leaning toward the bizarre, this book is for you.  Sven’s journey takes him on a cross-country trip as he faces killer lobster monkeys and a mind numbing (literally) pop singer.  There is a lot of action and the characters are fun, though superficial. I’d like to see William developed more fully.  Fun, totally unbelievable, over-the-top ride.
